An exhibition at the Tallinn University of Technology Museum was open 1.12.2011 – 20.12.2013
The word mechanics originates from the old Greek expression mekhanikē tekhnē – “the art of building machines”. Different machines give people additional strength, speed and power. During the last 75 years, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Tallinn University of Technology has played an important role on the road of development from the Archimedes’ screw to the modern race car. Different devices and production technologies from mobile robots to formula race cars, from super-light bicycle frames made of composite materials to the armoured plating on military machinery, from the wind turbines at wind parks to the oil shale furnaces in thermal power plants are all studied, created and developed there.
