Research and Projects

There are large number of researchers at the Faculty of Engineering, whose research activities are mostly focused on four scientific fields: mechanical engineering, naval architecture, electrical engineering and computer science. They also cover fundamental and interdisciplinary technical sciences. This structure enables the interdisciplinarity of the research and enables the achievement of significant results by interconnecting, as well as connecting with the wider academic community.
