Department of Theoretical Mechanics

General Information. Department of Theoretical Mechanics was founded in 1964. The Head of the Department is Yaroslav Groda, PhD (Physics and Maths), Assistant Professor. 

Specialities and Specializations. The students of almost all the specialities from the first to the fourth course study mechanics in different forms and to a different extent of knowledge.  In all cases mechanics study is in close connection with a future engineering qualification.

Academic Activities. The department delivers courses of lectures in theoretical mechanics, applied mechanics (division of theoretical mechanics), the theory of machines and mechanisms, engineering mechanics, dynamics of vibroprotection systems, and the applied theory of vibrations. These courses allow students to study mechanics from the very common principles to the particular numeric calculations which sometimes require application of computer methods. For example, second year mechanical students do laboratory works in computer modeling of mechanical systems motion, they perform computer aided mechanisms design and simulate their functioning. The subsection of theoretical mechanics is presented at the annual scientific and technical conference of students and master’s candidates.

Facilities. The department of theoretical mechanics has a laboratory equipped with laboratory facilities and a wide range of mechanisms models enabling to carry out practical and laboratory works in theoretical mechanics and in the theory of machines and mechanisms at a good level.
