Why the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at BME?


The Reader is to find the answer. Take these few directions below first, and make your way through them.

One is a student opinion, the other is a set of aspects to consider the Budapest-choice… Then, as a result, we can hopefully greet you at our institution next year.


"Talking about Budapest means talking about a city full of energy, ideas, symbolism. You do not need to understand what is happening around you to enjoy it, and it might occur that enjoying it is the only way for you to understand it. No matter if you really achieve this knowledge or not, once you have tried it, you will never be the same person again. You will learn something forever, and this something would go with you, wherever you go, as a part of your life. When I arrived in Budapest I was afraid about the teachers, the language, the culture, and the people. Then I have grown into the classes, the language, the culture, and got accustomed to local people. I can only say that one hour before my departure I left the flat and thought, "Here I was happy, even if I do not precisely know what happiness means at all."
