  • devise, develop and use modern production technologies, automation of production and new production concepts;
  • manage information, material and energy flows in the planning, design, construction, building, assembly, disassembly and maintenance of products;
  • manage existing production processes and technologies, analyse, assess and evaluate them, and update them as necessary;
  • organise and manage the production process;
  • assure the appropriate quality of products by performing relevant quality measurements and checks;
  • ensure measures for the faultless operation, maintenance and environmental integrity of products throughout their life cycle;
  • demonstrate interdisciplinary understanding of activities in production systems;
  • continuously develop skills in the application of knowledge in a specific professional field;
  • use modern computer, information and communication technologies and systems in the professional field;
  • demonstrate familiarity with and understanding of the history of mechanical engineering and its disciplines.

Assesment and completion:

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).


In order to progress to the second year, students must pass first-year examinations totalling at least 45 ECTS credits.
If a student fails to meet all progression requirements, the studies committee of the relevant university member may approve enrolment in the second year at the student's request provided he or she has completed more than half of the first-year course units (more than 30 credits), was unable to complete the course units for justified reasons, as laid down in the Statute of the University of Maribor, and may be expected to complete the course units.
In order to progress to the third year, students must have passed all first-year examinations (60 credits) and second-year examinations totalling at least 40 credits.
