Doctoral Degree in Mechanical Engineering

The Mechanical Engineering doctoral programme (PRODEM) of the Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto – FEUP trains leaders in Mechanical Engineering through high level research. It benefits from the tradition of Mechanical Engineering research and education at FEUP and was recently reformatted as a consequence of the Bologna process, also including a component of lectures further to the main activity ‐ research.
Mechanical Engineering R&D at FEUP is carried out in a variety of contexts, particularly R&D Units recognized by the Portuguese Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, based at FEUP itself or in any of the R&D institutes associated to FEUP such as INEGI.
As one of the senior Engineering specialties, Mechanical Engineering represents a vast area of knowledge, permanently rejuvenated through the appearance of new fields of interest and new increasingly powerful numerical and experimental tools.
