Started in the academic year 2008/2009. The minimum number of credits to obtain Master's degree is 300. The Master is accredited by the Ordem dos Engenheiros and the FEANI (European Federation of National Engineering Associations) in order to assign the EUR ING title (European Engineer).
The aim of the MSc Course in Mechanical Engineering (MIEM) is to train engineers with a solid preparation on engineering sciences, covering the fields of mechanics, solids and fluids, applied thermodynamics, structural mechanics, materials characteristics and behavior and manufacturing processes. In the ending learning stage course emphasizes the areas of machines project, industrial technology, metal structures and thermal equipment.
Given the great diversity of interest areas of Mechanical Engineering the MIEM is presented as a course without ramifications comprising five academic years focusing in the requirements of companies (industrial or services) and organizations (public or private) in the fields of Mechanical Engineering (project, production, consulting, teaching and research, management of energy resources and the management and maintenance in the industry area).
Integration of information technology in the fields of mechanical engineering open new and very attractive professional opportunities including the following:

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (DEMI) is a permanent organic unit of FCT NOVA, devoted to education, to basic and applied scientific research and to providing services in the areas of Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The DEMI offers two integrated masters (Industrial Engineering and Management, Mechanical Engineering), four masters (Industrial Engineering and Management, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Welding Engineering), two doctoral programs and several post-graduations.
Currently the DEMI has 38 teachers and 5 staff elements. The teachers of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering collaborate with various public and private institutions, particularly in developing research projects in scientific and technological areas relevant to Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.More info
