Centre for Mechanical Engineering of the University of Coimbra ­
The Centre for Mechanical Engineering of the University of Coimbra ‐ CEMUC (FCT Unit nº.
285) aims to develop interdisciplinary research in the areas of Mechanical and Materials
Engineering and other related areas. Its main objectives are to promote innovation,
facilitating the dissemination of scientific and technological knowledge in close
collaboration with the business and social network and supporting the creation of start‐ups,
to contribute for advanced training and to collaborate on strategies for regional and
international development.
The strategic program of the Unit is developed under the theme "Develop and Apply
knowledge and Technology to Improve Mobility" in order to perform advanced research in
mechanical engineering in its modern sense in which complementary knowledge areas
intersect, to arrive at appropriate solutions so as to face new challenges posed by mobility.
Thus, the strategic program of the Unit contains four strategic pillars, namely:
1. 2. 3. 4. Mechanical Engineering & Mining/Raw materials;
Materials’ Contacts, Surfaces and Interfaces;
Advanced Materials, Technologies & Structures for Health;
Green Vehicles.
CEMUC is organized into seven groups with different expertise, which are essential to
successfully carry out research on the strategic lines:
1. Advanced manufacturing systems;
2. Nanomaterials & micromanufacturing;

3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Sensors and nanoelectrochemistry;
Structural integrity;
Surface engineering;
Bioengineering & polymer synthesis;
Mining & raw materials.
While preserving the freedom of research and initiative of its researchersstrive to meet the
standards of proficiency that allows CEMUC to be recognized as a research reference at
European level. CEMUC consists of 89 integrated PhD researchers, of whom 48 are
university professors from the host institutions, the Universities of: Coimbra (UC ‐ 32
researchers), Porto (UP ‐ 10) and Trás‐os‐Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD ‐ 6). CEMUC also
includes integrated PhD members from the Polytechnic Institutes of: Coimbra (IPC ‐ 4),
Leiria (IPL ‐ 4) and Tomar (IPT ‐ 1). The remaining integrated PhD researchers are hired on
fixed‐term (7) and post‐doctoral fellows (25). CEMUC also includes about ninety researchers
with master's degree, of whom 67 are PhD students.
CEMUC® was graded as "Excellent" in the last three international assessments (1999, 2003,
2007), promoted by FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, and its Chairman is PhD
José Valdemar Fernandes.
