Overview

University of Dunaújváros is a regional innovational center, which is also set to become Hungary’s center for training and development in the field of nuclear technology, given its proximity to the largest nuclear plant in Hungary. The University of Dunaújváros is located in the lovely town Dunaújváros, approx an hour drive from Budapest.

The history of the university goes back the 1950’s, but got a massive renovation and investment in the early 2000s. The University of Dunaújváros is the perfect choice for you if are looking for an affordable, yet modern tech university with a family-like campus.

It consists of 15 buildings forming a complex of modern classrooms, lecture halls, on-campus dormitory, a public library, professional laboratories, sport and leisure facilities and newly renovated student hostels.

UOD has great laboratories as well, a part of which serves the practical needs of our education, and quite a few of them are devoted to research & development in cooperation with the significant industrial companies of the region.

In electric transport and the operation of electric vehicles, complex mechatronic systems, electric drive technology, sensor and actuator technology, as well as modern computer-based control technology appear with great emphasis, which provides the main knowledge of the mechatronic specialization of basic mechanical engineering.

UOD is proud to have established great industrial relationships, that provide internship and future career opportunities for our students and graduates. They established strategic partnerships among others with Tungsram, Paks Nuclear Power Plant, Rusatom International Network, MÁV Group (Hungarian National Railway Company) and HANKOOK Tire Company.
Thanks also to their partners, students find internship placement or employment at e.g. Apple, Mozilla Foundation, SUN and CISCO IT, labs, Omron industrial automation, Siemens mobile technology, SKF Swedish Ball Bearings, FESTO pneumatics.


This BSc programme in Mechanical Engineering offers the knowledge of mechanical engineers who are able to operate and maintain machines and engineering equipments, to install and apply mechanical engineering technologies, to organize and control the work, and to fulfill the technical development, research and planning tasks of average complexity level in accordance with the requirements of the labour market; and who have acquired in-depth theoretical knowledge that is adequate to enable them to continue with their studies in the graduate, master level.

Programme structure

Specialization:
- Mechatronics

The research activities of the Institute are carried out in the field of engineering and environmental protection. Among our research, materials science, non-destructive material testing and the environmental applications of electrical discharges stand out.

The Institute expands its R & D & I activities in the field of electromobility, which complements and at the same time opens up a new space for its education and research portfolio. In electric transport and the operation of electric vehicles, complex mechatronic systems, electric drive technology, sensor and actuator technology, as well as modern computer-based control technology appear with great emphasis, which provides the main knowledge of the mechatronic specialization of basic mechanical engineering.

During their studies students are required to take up to 210 credits, each semester totalling 30 credits.
There are six core modules in each of the first three years of the programme.
The core modules in the first year are taken mainly from the fields of basic engineering subjects and basic natural scientific subjects, such as Mechanics, Machine Structures Mathematics, Engineering Physics.
In the second and third year the students continue their studies with professional basic mechanical engineering subjects (in hydraulics, pneumatics, welding, design systems, CNC machines, production planning, etc.) and the subjects in connection to the field of their specialisation.
In the final semester students are required to accomplish their final degree projects and write their thesis.

Career opportunities

Future Prospects:
Nowadays there is an increasing demand on the labour market for mechanical engineers. The industrial areas of machine production, chemical production and the energy sector requires skillful mechanical engineers to do the work tasks of factories and design offices in relation to technical design, maintenance and quality insurance.

A graduated Mechanical Engineer shall be able to
• do the technical design and construction of machine parts, machines, equipments, appliances, devices;
• work out and manage the production of machine structures, metal and/ or polimer structures and its parts;
• do the diagnostical testing of machines and equipments and to work out the related maintenance, reliability and repairment technological tasks;
• manage the mechanical engineering technological processes and to organise the servicing of machinery devices;
• do the operation and development of mechatronical systems;
• do the operation and development of logistic and material handling systems;
• do the technical control of environmental protection tasks;
• apply environment-friendly technologies, to develop the industrial environment and to design and produce the environment-protecting technical tools;
• do the design of building engineering equipments, to prepare, to organise and to manage its construction;
• do the design, production and maintenance of vehicles and mobile machines;
• do the planning, implementation, production and maintenance of thermodynamical, hydrodynamical and chemical processes;
• find solution to labour safety tasks.
