Traditional training in Mechanical Engineering is geared towards learning the skills required to solve specific problems related to this branch of engineering and acquiring the capacity to deal with the technological changes graduates will have to face throughout their careers (which involves the capacity to face the resolution of new problems). As a result, this training is based on basic knowledge of science and engineering, such as Physics, Mathematics, Graphic Expression, Statistics and Chemistry. In addition, specific training in Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Structural Mechanics, Thermal Engineering and Fluid Mechanics, set the bases for more technological subjects. In this way, undergraduates receive a multidisciplinary foundation that allows them to have a global perception of all the aspects that interact in the sectors that concern them, and this is achieved by introducing subjects from other branches of engineering into this degree.

Specific technological subjects train undergraduates to participate in the typical activities of their profession. These subjects also highlight the importance of taking into account aspects related to process integration and the rational use of energy in the stages of planning, calculating, analyzing, measuring, testing, use and maintenance of machines, processes, vehicles, structures, constructions and systems. Nowadays, besides their experimental and metrological skills, graduates in Mechanical Engineering must have mastered the cross-curricular computational techniques that facilitate their work in many ways and have therefore become essential tools. This Degree includes computer-aided techniques in the different subjects where they are required.
