AND we are VERRRRRRRRY anxious to see the new faculty member (NFM), the mascot. :-)

Mascot tender


The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (GPK) has just launched its once-in-a-lifetime tender. The call is about a mascot representing GPK in the best possible way. At the end of March a new faculty member will be introduced to all of us.

New Statue in D aula


It was 60 years ago that the predecessor of the Department of Mechatronics, Optics and Mechanical Engineering Informatics was established as a new adminsitrative and scientific unit of BME.

The first professor of the Department was Nándor Rendesi Bárány. The ribbon cutting ceremony of his new statue was held mid November.

Falling Walls - hit the Final in Berlin


Finding solutions to the current problems of our world was the topic of the recently closed Falling Walls Lab event organized by the Péter Pázmány Catholic University, Facultyof IT and Bionics, and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. There were 14 young talents presenting their modern approaches, in this way, opening up new horizons. It was a pre-selection round and the best developments were as follows: an innovative heat storage, a psychology-state evaluating mouse, and a laparoscopy equipment. The prides of BME and our Faculty are Zoltán Andrássy, first place, Ádám Benke, second place, and László Jaksa, third place. A BIG congratulation to them! The international final is coming soon in November. We'll keep our fingers crossed for you! You are the best!

WRO final in Hungary


The WRO (World Robot Olympiad) final in Hungary was organized in Debrecen on 15-16 June 2017. 25 competitor teams took part in the contest. The international organization offered extra difficult tasks, and this may be the reason that only 18 teams showed up on site, and no more than 6 managed to collect credits in the competition. It has never happened so far that the majority of the competitors scored zero. One more reason to advertise proudly that 4 of the able competitors belonged to MOGI, BME. Even further all the three of the medalists were also MOGI teams. The first-placed group can take part in the WRO World Final in Costa Rica in November 2017.
See the gold medalists:
Coach: Richárd Lengyel
Team: Gergő Emmert, Miklós Knébel, András László Ludvig

Quacquarelli Symonds


The current rankings of Quacquarelli Symonds placed 980 universities in the evaluation process. The Spanish ranking company evaluated 4000 universities out of  26 000 universities worldwide, and distributed specific ranking to the first  1000 institutions.) The first 400 got individual ranking, those placed between 401 and 500 were grouped by 10s, and the ones between 501 and 800 appeared in groups of 50s. Further rankings did not get any special performance. A total of 6 Hungarian uniuversities got into the club of 1000 out of the evaluated 4322, from among therm BME is placed 4th and can be found in the category of 751-800.

Time and venue: 15:30-17:30 on 24 May 2017 in Building K, upper groundfloor 85.



SLIP - These days are, by no doubt, the oldest arrangement of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. During the traditional April event the students can get freed from the world of evaluation and assessment and have some leasure with their friends for four days.

Each afternoon 200 members of 7-8 teams of competitors face the challange of professional evaluation; can justify their efficiency in several tasks to prove the ability of an engineering student. Finally, in the evenings the concerts of invited music bands entertain approximately 1000 students.
