MECHATRONICS is a subject embracing the interdisciplinary combination of knowledge in technical mechanics, electronics, automatics and computer sciences, where all these fields are integrated in the process of designing. With object of interests and applying mechatronics are among others: industrial jobs, arrangements of steering vehicles, advanced domestic appliances, devices of automation and robotics, numerically controlled machines, integrated medical apparatus, metrology, nanotechnology,and computer science. Mechatronics is about the process of designing and manufacturing in order to assure: the high quality of the product, the low cost of manufacturing, designing by the low cost reducing the time of carrying out the project, and permanently improving the product. The graduate of Mechatronics is prepared to undertake the career in industry: manufacturing arrangements mechatronics, electromechanical, automotive, domestic appliances, air, machine tools, and different exploiting institutions and mechatronic service arrangements (or maintenance), as well as machines and devices, in which they are used.

ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING field of study is a specific subject in the area of technical sciences. It is about undertaking engineering balances for preserving the natural environment and behaviours for self-regeneration and self-cleansing, and in the case of devastation of the environment - making one's way to restore this balance. Environment Engineering is dealing with the action of human beings in the environment, taking environmental friendly action into consideration for: neutralizing sewers and waste, land reclamation, the prevention of air pollution, monitoring and environment protection. Designing apparatuses and devices taken in the environmental preservation is also embracing and heat engineering and of air conditioning. The graduate of Environment Engineering has essential qualifications for undertaking the career connected with the environment protection among others in such fields of industry as: carbo and petrochemical, of plastics, the processing farm and food, mine and processing of minerals e.g. the cement industry, professional energetic, factories manufacturing industrial apparatus, sewage treatment plants, aqueous-sewer enterprises, industrial factories of the processing, the recycling and the waste disposal as well as design offices and laboratories.

CHEMICAL AND PROCESS ENGINEERING is the subject examining the description of processing laws leading to the change in composition and the property of substance. Knowing these processes is fundamental to designing, the real exploitation of production installations in many fields of industry. Chemical and engineering is an interdisciplinary subject embracing mechanical, thermal and heat-mass transfer processes. The domain of process engineering is to create the quantitative description of these processes as well as making the base for designing and manufacturing industrial apparatus. The area of interests of chemical and process engineering, among others, includes designing of mechanical operations, thermal-flow processes (heat exchangers etc.), processes of the thermal decomposition and separation of mixtures (e.g. distillation), as well as reactors and bioreactors. The graduate of Chemical and Process Engineering is prepared to undertake the career in: industry carbo- and petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic and plastic industry; industry of the processing farm and food; the mining industry and processing of ores (e.g. cement industry); for energetics and environmental engineering; factories manufacturing industrial apparatus; design offices and laboratories the state administration department as well as notifying and monitoring the industrial operational safety.

POWER ENGINEERING is the subject embracing the interdisciplinary combination of knowledge of the modern technology of heat and electricity, and technical sciences. It is designed to prepare the engineer to make use of existing and development of new technical and information systems in the area of energy, associated with the design, construction, control, operation, repair of machinery, equipment installation and sale of energy. The graduate of Power Engineering is prepared to undertake the career in: energy, thermal engineering and technical sciences, as well as to participate in the design, manufacture, installation, supervision, operation, and diagnostic test equipment and power equipment, the components, and energy technology systems. An understanding of sustainable development of the country and the increasing role of environmental problems associated with the generation, transmission and distribution of energy. This professional is prepared to work in companies involved in the operation in the area of energy systems and facilities related to the production, processing, transmission and distribution of energy. The graduate is a specialist in the field of energy issues in local government units and can use computer technology in the control of technological processes and management.

TRANSPORT is an interdisciplinary field of study involving knowledge of modern technologies of movement of people, cargo space by appropriate means. The basis of education is learning about transport systems, technologies of transport, technical means of transport, infrastructure and management systems. Students gain knowledge of how a modern transport works and in particular, means of transportation engineering, traffic engineering and transportation systems. Students learn to solve problems in the organization, planning, control system design and directing traffic. They learn how to organize, supervise and manage transport processes. The graduate of Transport has knowledge of modeling and analysis of mechanical systems, perform calculations when designing technological processes, describe and predict the performance characteristics of equipment, facilities and technical systems.
