The Department of Mechanics and Machine Design is one of the oldest and biggest departments of Opole University of Technology. Employees and PhD students are leading classes and conduct research and scientific works.  Acclaimed scientific experience and large research facilities allowed the Department to take the role of scientific expertise contractors in terms of strengths of materials. The Department is leading a Center of Excellence CESTI and realizes the tasks within the Uptronic project within the Leonardo da Vinci Project. The Department has organized and hosted many conferences and courses within national and international range. The main scientific tasks of the Department of Mechanics and Machine Design are:

    -fatigue life in the multaxial random loading state,
    -tests of mechanical properties of materials,
    -mechanics of shell structures in the elastic-plastic state,
    -components durability testing of hydraulic cylinders and their seals,
    -fracture mechanics,
    -Computer Aided Design (CAD).
    -mechatronic systems.
