From 1979 and onwards, two departments are active on this faculty – the Department of Production and the Department of Energy drive. During the school year of 1990/91 two more departments were introduced – the Department of Productional Mechanical Engineering and the Department of Thermal Technology and Motorizing, and during the school year of 2000/01, the Department of Work Safety was established.
