The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics offers a broad-based education for engineering, encompassing professional disciplines associated with current and future needs and developments in both Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering.

It was founded in 1967, providing curricula in Mechanical Engineering since 1972, on a five-year course basis and preparing graduates for industry, government, education and research at home and abroad. Since 1995 the Department has been expanded and started offering curricula also in Aeronautics Engineering in both undergraduate and post-graduate levels.

Because of the scope of the Department and the variety of career objectives sought by its graduates, the faculty research and teaching cover a wide range of disciplines, leading to the award of a Diploma degree, after five years of studies and the successful accomplishment of a Diploma Thesis. At the post-graduate level, the Department offers programs leading to a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics.

The Department's educational program is designed to provide the required knowledge and skills to the students, who wish to pursue a professional career in Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics.
