The Institute of Applied Mechanics is the organizer or co-organizer of the following conferences:


VIBSYS is a conference organized by the Polish Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and the Institute of Applied Mechanics of the Poznań University of Technology.

The thematic scope of the conference includes, among others dynamics of machines, vibroacoustics, waves in solids and fluids, issues of stability and control as well as biomechanics.

It brings together mechanics, mathematicians, engineers, designers, technologists and physicists, around the latest achievements of basic and applied sciences, creating good conditions for the exchange of experiences.


VibDiag is a conference organized by the Institute of Applied Mechanics of the Poznań University of Technology and the Polish Society of Technical Diagnostics.

The subject of the conference includes broadly understood vibroacoustics and vibroacoustic diagnostics of machines, devices, structures, means of transport as well as vibroacoustics of the natural environment and work environment.

The aim of the conference is to exchange experiences and present the achievements and research results by the participants.




Biomechanical Society of Students 'Da Vinci' davinci

Biomechanical Student Society "Da Vinci" is a research club that was registered at the Institute of Applied Mechanics at the Poznań University of Technology in 2014 on the initiative of Biomedical Engineering students. The activity of the club focuses on the biomechanics of the human musculoskeletal system, mechanical modeling of tissues and the application of modern computational methods in biomechanical issues.

Chairwoman: Iryna Kachura-Zhechytska
Website of the club:


'Tensometr' Scientific Club

The Tensometer Scientific Club was established in April 2024 on the initiative of students and is related to mechanics, strength of materials and structures. As part of the club, students expand their knowledge during additional lectures and laboratory classes.
Additionally, they carry out research on:

  • designing and constructing stations for testing the mechanical properties of materials and structures and extending existing stations,
  • scanning and performing numerical calculations for actual objects and comparing them with the results obtained on the basis of experimental tests.

We are also interested in cooperation with other scientific clubs and conducting research that is useful in the implementation of their projects.

Chairwoman: Anna Stawiarz


Virtual Design Engineering Scientific Clubkolo_iwp

The Scientific Club of Virtual Design Engineering is related to the Virtual Design Engineering specialization, but is open to all students of the Poznan University of Technology. The club bases its activity on the implementation of projects related to broadly understood virtual engineering. The research carried out as part of it concerns, among others, areas such as:

  • construction of machines/vehicles (drones, electric skateboards, walking vehicles, 3D printers),
  • bioengineering and biomimetics
  • FEM and CFD calculations (simulations and visualization of flows)
  • 3D printing and CNC machine tools
  • cooperation with PUT Motorsport
