The study programme Automated Production Systems is focused on issues of automation and computer support in production technologies, in particular on flexible manufacturing systems in mechanical engineering, computer support in pre-production stages, design in automated mechanical engineering industry, on the field of digitally controlled production machines, robot technology, application of microelectronics and computing techniques in production technologies, and creation of control systems for automated machinery equipment.

The base of the knowledge of the study programme graduates is there in the area ofproduction technologies for mechanical engineering, further in the field of technological processes of production of semi-finished goods, production technology and assembly of spare parts, technical preparation, design of production processes and systems, handling, transport and storage of  components in the context of the rationalisation of engineering production, economics and management of mechanical engineering, automation and computer support.

The graduates are able to systematically and comprehensively solve material, technological and organizational issues of the production technologies using automated tools and approaches as well as computer support in pre-production, production and post-production stages of the spare parts implementation based on the methods of mathematical modelling, simulation and optimisation. The graduates´ abilities are integrated with knowledge of economic character.

The students are prepared for the study programme of the third degree in one of the related fields of study.

The graduates find employment as members of the middle management level of production, in the departments of technical production, especially in the field of technological design with computer support, in the field of design and management of flexible production systems, in research and development of technological processes and systems and implementation of automation in mechanical production.

Prospects of graduates

The study programme "Automated Production Systems" is focused on the area of automation and computer aid in manufacturing technologies, mainly on flexible manufacturing systems in machine industry, computer aid in pre-manufacturing stages, designing in automated machine industry manufacturing, the area of number controlled manufacturing machines and robots, robot technology, application of microelectronics and computer technology in manufacturing technologies and manufacturing systems, creation of control systems for automated machine equipments.

The graduate is able to systematically and comprehensively solve the material, technological and organisational issues in manufacturing technologies and in manufacturing systems with the use of automated tools and approaches, as well as of computer aid in the pre-manufacturing, manufacturing and post-manufacturing stages of spare part realisation based on the method of mathematical modeling, simulation and optimisation. The skills are integrated with the knowledge of economic character.
