DEM has new management team
The new management team of the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DEM) of the EEUM took over on the 4th October.
José Carlos Fernandes Teixeira, Full Professor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DEM) of the EEUM, was elected director of this department for the period 2016-2018. The management team also counts on Delfim Fernandes Soares, Assistant Professor from DEM, as assistant director.
During the ceremony, the DEM’s new director expressed his recognition for the work carried out by the resigning director and his team. Considering the integrated master programme in Mechanical Engineering as one of the institution’s structural education projects, José Carlos Fernandes Teixeira referred to the increasing internal and external acceptance of the department’s educational offer and the current success of the aforementioned programme. The new director of DEM considered this new mandate as an opportunity to find a resource sharing common space and promote collaboration as far as defining departmental common goals is concerned. During the new mandate, the Department will seek to focus on the several education projects in which it is involved, promoting their quality and projection.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is a structuring unit of the School of Engineering at the University of Minho. Its mission is the development of the core scientific areas in Mechanical Engineering through three vectors: teaching at both graduate and post graduate levels; research and development; partnership with the industry. Its main teaching project is the Integrated Master Programme in Mechanical Engineering. In addition, other projects are of the utmost relevance: Integrated Master Programme in Biomedical Engineering and in Materials Engineering. The research activities are framed within the Centre for Mechanical and Materials Technology (CT2M). Furthermore, the Department collaborates actively with CVR - Centre for Wastes Valorization and with TecMinho, coordinating its Chemical Analysis Laboratory.
