The Innovative Vehicle Technologies Competence Center, which is part of the Bosch innovation ecosystem, was handed over to the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The tools and simulation systems of the new center are unique in Hungarian technical higher education. With the help of this new equiments, students can acquire up-to-date practical knowledge in addition to theory, in line with domestic and international industry trends and needs. The development carried out on the campus of the University – in connection with the BME KJK courses – in addition to the 60-80 university students per year, it also provides a modern space for the faculty’s instructors to support their professional work.
Eötvös High School grades 9-11. students visited the Department of Automotive Technologies on March 10, 2023, where they gained an insight into the work of all the department’s research groups. They listened to a lecture on automated environmental sensing and vehicle control, the safety of vehicle functions based on wireless communication, and accident analysis. They visited the newly created Bosch competence center and the assembly hall, and during an impromptu chemistry class, they saw a demonstration of hydrogen fuel cell technology and laser metal 3D printing.
We hope that after the exciting program, in a few years, we will welcome them among our students!
