Told about us
As the Product Engineering Site Lead at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Hungary, I can honestly recommend the courses offered by the BME Department of Automotive Technologies, because it provides the competences that industrial players really need. I personally experienced the high quality of education and cutting-edge research in the department during my studies.
In the automotive industry, the future is partly or entirely about autonomous functions and I am developing approval processes for such automated vehicles. Without my knowledge at the Department of Automotive Technologies, I would not have been able to get here. I have completed my undergraduate and doctoral studies here and have been able to learn both professionally and humanly from faculty members who I can safely say are at the forefront of the world. Great team, high level of knowledge!
Avoid this department because there is no chance here if you are not interested in the topic, you do not love vehicles, movement, practical experience, speed, calculations, experiments, software, machines. Unfortunately, you must think, count, measure here, so it can be a horrible place. But I’m afraid I’ve already piqued the interest of a few people – they have a place here.
I feel lucky to have chosen this university (Budapest University of Technology and Economics), especially the Department of Automotive Technologies, where I was able to take part in a really quality education.
Looking at the technical aspects, the professors in this department are extremely committed to the latest research on self-driving cars. There is no doubt that they are making a 100 percent effort to achieve their goals, no matter what obstacles stand in their way. They do their work with great knowledge and diligence.
They treat students with devotion and support. One of the best examples of this is myself, as the cooperation with my supervisor Dr. Árpád Török was extremely fruitful. After my studies at Bosch, as an optical engineer, I had the opportunity to apply my learned methods and procedures. Overall, when I attended my master’s program, I felt like I was working more for a research company because I came across the latest research findings and efforts to solve new challenges everywhere. This environment has motivated me to be a leading industry player in the field.
I am satisfied with the education.
I am more interested in traditional vehicle training than autonomous vehicle control.
Courses related to autonomous vehicle control are (for me) difficult to learn, especially the programming parts.
The Department of Automotive Technologies often invites guest lecturers from other universities or research sites.
I liked these lectures because I felt I had access to knowledge available in other cutting-edge locations as well.
I am glad that during my studies in Vehicle Engineering I was able to write my dissertation at the Department of Automotive Technologies (GJT). I have participated in a lot of research, in which I can use the gained experience to this day. GJT is one of the most innovative departments in the faculty, I encourage everyone to apply for both specializations, research and development work. The outstanding professional knowledge of the lecturers and the attitude towards the students raise the standard even higher. Thank you very much!
I am very grateful that during my studies I gained complete and comprehensive knowledge in the department specializing in Vehicle Manufacturing. From material knowledge and material structure training, through a detailed understanding of traditional manufacturing technologies and processes, to the study of special procedures. I am currently working as a quality assurance engineer, so it is essential for me to know a manufacturing process from start to finish along with all its factors. During my dissertation I took part in an innovative departmental project, I evaluated experiments with metal powder-based additive SLM technology, for which I received huge professional support from Dr. Tamás Markovits, deputy head of Department and the laboratory of the department.
