The Faculty of Mechanics is one of the oldest in SRSPU. Almost half of the students of the first set of the Don Polytechnic Institute in 1907 amounted to mechanics. The training was conducted in five specialties – locomotives, electrical, flour grinding, factory machinery, agricultural machinery.
At present, the Faculty of Mechanics includes two departments, each of which actively uses the capabilities of modern scientific laboratories in its educational and scientific activities:
The department “Engineering technology, technological machines, and equipment”
The department trains specialists for many large enterprises of the Rostov region and other regions of the country and applies modern technologies in the educational process using software: Compass 3d, APM WinMachine, PASSAT, Mathcad, ANSYS, Mastercam
Due to the capabilities of the laboratory “Technological equipment of chemical and petrochemical industries,” the department is a stable supplier of personnel for EuroChem MCC. Training of students is conducted using modern equipment, which is equipped with a laboratory of “Flexible automated production and computer-aided design systems in mechanical engineering.” Future engineers are learning to work on modern high-tech CNC machines, simulators with augmented reality.
Department “Mechatronics and hydropneumatic automation”
Thanks to its personnel and scientific potential, the department is an inter-university educational and research center on mechatronics, automation, and hydropneumatic automation is an organizer and participant of international scientific events and projects in the field of mechatronics and power engineering and focuses on the training of modern innovative engineering-oriented personnel.
The department participates in the project for the development of a training system for the military-industrial complex on the subject of “Practice-oriented training of highly qualified project teams for advanced training in the field of aviation hydropneumatic and mechatronic systems” and cooperates with a partner enterprise Public Joint-Stock Company “Taganrog Aviation Scientific-Technical complex them.
