Mechanical engineering programs have been offered at TUT since 1918; however, the Faculty was established in 1947. The mission is to retain its competitiveness on the national as well as international scale as a center of educational, research and development work in mechanical engineering, machinery and thermal power engineering.
The curricula have been tailored to satisfy the needs of the national industry, in the international harmonization perspective, providing for specialization in product development, production engineering, materials technology and vehicle engineering. In addition, specialists of thermal engineering and mechatronics are trained. Academic and R&D work exploit today's information technology and high tech facilities (computer classrooms, professional software, accredited testing center and research laboratories). The Faculty is a provider of training courses to cater for enterprise priorities. Examples of internationalization are: the international master program of Industrial Engineering and Management and several cooperation schemes. Major collaboration projects include joint courses with the Helsinki University of Technology (Finland), ROBOTEX robot building mechatronics competition with the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) and the University of Tartu (Estonia).
R&D projects covering all the fields pursued at the Faculty, financed by the Estonian Science Foundation, the Estonian Technology Agency, as well as by international organizations. Among the most successful projects are: development of a soot blower with super long travel, optimization of the piano framework, implementation of a super-sonic flame sprayer, design and industrial application of small-scale boilers, design and implementation of biomedical rehabilitation devices, models for friction and wear of different machine parts, different machine parts, different coating technologies and development of carbide based high-resistive materials and continuously running service of materials and machine elements.
