In 2022, Óbuda University was ranked 186th in the QS EECA ranking and 301–350th in the Times World University Rankings (Young University Rankings).

Óbuda University is the number one practice-oriented technical University in Budapest, Hungary. Their engineering and applied science departments and programs are among the nation’s oldest with 140 years of rich tradition, established in 1879.

Óbuda University is an excellent institution in any Engineering or IT field and the most famous for their achievements and leading role in the field of robotics. They are the founder and current leader of the Central European Living Lab for Intelligent Robotics (CELLI), a network of 18 robotics centers and SMEs form 7 countries.

The University has world-class research and education since Óbuda University has
8 internationally recognized research, innovation and service centres including
- Antal Bejczy Center for Intelligent Robotics (iROB)
- Bio-Tech Research Center,
- Physiological Controls Research Center and
- SmartLab Center.

ÓU students have great achievements in several national and international competitions, such as at the Design Challenge Robotics Building, Bosch Electromobil, Mitsubishi-Scholarship, Pneumobil, Shell Eco-marathon, Hajós György Mathematics and PLC Control Engineering Programing Competitions, Spaghetti Bridge Building.

Famous Alumni
József Galamb – The first world-famous student was József Galamb, designer of the FORD Model T.
Charles Balough- President of the Hercules Motor Manufacturing Company, designer of Ford T-modell
Rudolf Emil Kálmán – electrical engineer, mathematician, inventor of Kálmán filter

ÓU students are involved in professional practice at foreign partners annually; students are required and encouraged to participate in active research and design in the project laboratories and to develop their abilities to do independent research.

The aim of the course is the training of mechatronic engineers who, in possession of the acquired complex skills in natural sciences, electronic, mechanical and computer engineering as well as economics, will be capable to design, construct, integrate and develop mechatronic devices and equipment, and as well as able to solve research and development tasks of mechatronic systems, and who also possess well-founded theoretical knowledge to continue their studies in the next cycle of training (PhD).

The programs is recommended for those who wish to integrate mechanical engineering with electronics, electro-technics and computer control synergically.

Technological advancements are constantly revolutionising human transportation in general.
Automotive information technology (IT) generally refers to hardware or software designed to enhance and boost the experience of driving or riding a vehicle. The development of self-driving vehicles with increasing safety is fast progressing and may become a reality in the near future.

New improvements and integrations in the vehicle technology world are increasingly being implemented as the industry realizes the importance of data to a vehicle operator. Generally, the objectives of automotive IT include improving the performance of automotive systems, enhancing the safety of motor vehicles, making useful data available to the operators, and providing better entertainment experience to passengers.

This is done by equipping vehicles with various types of computers, software, sensors, cameras, and radar systems. Equipping vehicles and automotives with readily available information means redesigning features ranging from engine systems to central consoles in order to accommodate the evolution.

Please note that specialisations are launched only with the necessary amount of students.

Career opportunities

Graduates will be capable to
• develop and introduce new technologies, procedures and materials as required for mechatronic systems;
• perform higher-level duties of management, control and organization;
• perform assignments involving technical development, research, design and innovation;
• join and manage engineering projects of domestic and international level.
