The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague experienced with mechanical engineering all phases of its development starting from the onset of the industrial revolution up to the present time and often paid here an active role. The 17 Faculty departments cover the entire sphere of mechanical engineering from mathematics and physics over materials and technologies up to individual types of machines and processes and enterprise economics. Their 150 years lasting history is an extensive one and represents not only a great commitment but also a hopeful promise of further development of the faculty for industry in the Czech Lands based on Czech mechanical engineers.
