Mechanics and production are disciplines that design, analyse, produce and maintain mechanical systems using technical science, physics, engineering mathematics and materials science. Classical natural sciences and technical disciplines are used for invention and solving problems, and the department's research and development activities include energy systems, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, materials technology, robot technology and machine dynamics and construction, mechatronics and robot technology, as well as integrated product and production development.
Many of our research and development activities are based on the specific innovation needs or specialist application areas of companies. Close collaboration with the public sector and private companies ensures that the knowledge and technology generated in the department's research environments has a clear anchoring in reality and benefits society as a whole.
At the department, we educate BEng, BSc and MSc graduates in engineering for Danish society.
The department was established on 1 January 2021 at Faculty of Technical Sciences at Aarhus University simultaneously with three other engineering departments; Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering and Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering.
