The subject Mechanical Engineering is introduction to an area which is part of the basic knowledge of technical engineers. Students of chemistry will be educated in related technical branches and they will learn the skills of communicating with the complex working team. The basics of the technical drawing, reading of the technical documentation, properties of the construction materials and the basic types of the chemical technology machinery (supporting structures, pipelines, pumps, pressure tanks, heat exchangers, driving mechanisms, power sources...) will be introduced.
