Program Description

The goal of this program is to train mechanical engineers with professional knowledge based on a solid theoretical and industrial background. As the output of the program, the graduate engineers will have the skills to take part in designing and manufacturing complete machines or machine elements, use Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) tools, operate and develop complete production chains in various engineering fields. Mechanical Engineers must have a general problem-solving attitude while also need to be able to participate in teams of large-scale projects.

This program is recommended to applicants who are interested in modern Production and Manufacturing technologies including Industry 4.0 applications.

This program enables students to obtain fundamental knowledge in the science of Mechanical Engineering in Production Technologies. The education program involves strong fundamental subjects as Applied Solid- and Fluid Mechanics together with cutting-edge computational tools such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), Finite Element Methods (FEA) or Multibody Dynamics (MD). Students learn the theory as well as the methodologies and techniques in the development and implementation of engineering systems and structures. The more practical courses are aided by state-of-the-art laboratories like the Laboratory of Materials Sciences, the Laboratory of Production Technologies or the Control Technique Laboratory.

Strength of program

The high standard of training is guaranteed by highly qualified academic staff. Teaching is supported by modern infrastructure (tensile tester, CNC machines, SEM microscope, robots, etc.) and well-equipped computer labs (software like Ansys, Solid Edge, Inventor, ADAMS). The library of the Faculty contains several thousand volumes. The students of higher years and Ph.D. students help the first year students in a mentor system to overcome their first challenges at the university.

In addition to the high level of theoretical training, the Faculty's relationship with the business community, the joint research, and development projects offer up-to-date practical knowledge and experience to the students. The Faculty has concluded bilateral agreements with numerous universities in the world, which allows students to study one or two semesters or participate in research projects at a partner institution.

Extracurricular undergraduate research activities of the students are supported and supervised by leading scientists of the Faculty. These students present their findings both national and international conferences.

Another important strength of the program, the since the number of places is limited (48), the students can work more efficiently with the professors in small groups. This provides a great advantage in mastering the subjects at a higher level.

Career opportunities

Mechanical Engineers are welcome in several sectors of engineering both in Hungary or anywhere in Europe. Jobs are offered by large international companies, outstanding Hungarian firms, large enterprises, state institutions, vehicle producing companies, research institutes and universities where they may be engaged in the preparation of computer-aided design, structural analysis, quality management’s issues, and their solutions, production efficiency enhancement or management tasks.
