Mechanical Engineering is defined nowadays as a discipline awhich involves the application of principles of physics, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systemsa. Recently, mechanical engineering has also focused on some cutting-edge subjects such as nanomechanics and nanotechnology, mechatronics and robotics, computational mechanics, biomechanics, alternative energies, as well as aspects related to sustainable mechanical engineering. This book covers mechanical engineering higher education with a particular emphasis on quality assurance and the improvement of academic institutions, mechatronics education and the transfer of knowledge between university and industry.As all Greek engineering faculties offer curricula of five years for the first degree ( diploma), equivalence is recognized only for those diplomas from abroad that have a similar total duration of studies. For degrees of duration less than five years, anbsp;...
