BSc in Mechanical Engineering

Short description of BSc in Mechanical Engineering program

The objective is to train mechanical engineers with a professional knowledge based on a solid theoretical knowledge and industrial background. They have the skills to take part in designing simple 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.

The program provides students with a broad education in Mechanical Engineering in specialized 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 the program

The high standard of training is guaranteed by the 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 PhD students help the first year students in a mentor system to overcome their first challenges at the university. Workshops are also organized with international partners. 

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 at a conference organized by the Faculty every year.

Workshops are also organized with international partners.

Career opportunities

Mechanical Engineers are welcome in several sector of engineering. 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 managements issues and their solutions, production efficiency enhancement or management tasks.

Job examples

Design Engineer, Production engineer, Automatization Engineer, Simulation Engineer, Research Fellow

Entry requirements 

Applicants are required to have sufficiently good grades in their secondary school finishing documents, especially from Mathematics. Intermediate level of English knowledge is also required.

Application procedure

The application starts on the online application system (apply.elte.hu). Students need to register in the system, fill in the online application form, upload the required documents and follow the instructions during the application process.

Procedure of the entrance examination

Admitted students will write a test from Mathematics and English at the beginning of September.  Upon failing, the student will be redirected to our Preliminary Course.
