The faculty hosts around 1,000 students (including around 60 DSc students) on 6 BSc level fields of study: Mechanical Engineering, Power Engineering, Agriculture and Forestry Engineering, Management and Production Engineering, Food Engineering and Human Nutrition, and Transport; 4 MSc level fields of study: Mechanical Engineering, Power Engineering, Agriculture and Forestry Engineering, and Management and Production Engineering; and 2 DSc fields of study: Machine Design and Operation, and Agriculture Engineering. The faculty received the right to grant the DSc degree in 1987 (Machine Design and Operation) and in 2009 (Agriculture Engineering).
In 2000, the faculty received the right to grant the post-doctoral degree in the field of Machine Design and Operation.
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering consist of 6 departments: Departments of Control, Mechanics and Design; Department of Power Engineering; Department of Production Engineering; Department of Technical and IT Systems Engineering; Department of Agro-bio-technology; Department of Technology for Food Industry; 1 Division of Transport; and Centre for Unconventional Hydro-stream Technologies.
Within the scope of research conducted at the faculty, there are many international, national and regional research programs carried out. It includes research grants, MNiSW projects (NCN, NCBiR), projects and expertise for the state and regional administration, and the statutory research that aims to develop new young scientists. The characteristic of the faculty determines the scope of research: abrasive treatment, outer surface properties, technological processes in agriculture engineering, unconventional hydro-stream technologies, artificial intelligence in control and safety systems, production technologies, micro-biological safety in food industry, utilization of agro and food waste, food processing, polymeric materials; and simulation, analysis and synthesis of machine design using the CAD/CAE software.
Currently, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, due to its educational and research activities, plays an important role in polish higher education system and contributes to the development of the Pomerania region and the community of Koszalin city. In our agenda, a special attention is given to guarantee a high level of the academic education and the research as well as rising the next generation of engineers and further education of our graduates. Within the scope of educational activities, the dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering established the Board of Employers as an advisory body.
