I. GENERAL INFORMATION

April 30, 1964 – foundation of Polytechnic Institute in Chisinau and the Faculty of Mechanics.

1993 – it is divided, forming two faculties, which  merge in 2014 to form the faculty with the current name.

At FMET, study about 750 full-time students and 430 students at reduced attendancy courses.

Mechanical and industrial engineers carry out researches, design and manufacture industrial products, machinery and mechanical systems for various uses. They can also accomplish tasks related to the assessment, installation, operation and maintenance of equipment and mechanical systems as well as those of transport.
