Centre for testing and calculation of machine elements and systems - CIPMES is located at the Faculty of Engineering in Kragujevac in room C-IV-3. Center brings together all interested teachers and research associates of the Department for mechanical constructions and mechanization, and if necessary, they may also hire other teachers from the Faculty, as well as experts from the industry. The Centre's activities are related to:

  • Research and scientific work (preparation of doctoral thesis and writing scientific papers),
  • Education (University students preparing to compete at Masinijada in Machine elements as well as organizing additional teaching and hands-on activities for interested students),
  • Permanent education (organization of trainings and courses for unemployed engineers, and engineers employed in product development),
  • Publishing,
  • Cooperation with industry etc.


  • Designing of machines and devices,
  • 3D modeling and creating technical documentation,
  • Parametric modeling,
  • Mechanical constructions calculations,
  • Structural analysis of mechanical constructions,
  • Rapid prototyping,
  • Product development training,
  • Publishing,
  •  Design of equipment for testing the power transmission systems,
  • Documentation conversion (2D to 3D and 3D to 2D),
  • Consulting,
  • Certification of machine elements and machine systems,
  • Organizing presentations of companies’ production programs in the field of machine design, power transmission systems etc.
