Let me greet the visitors of our homepage as Dean of Óbuda University, Donát Bánki Faculty of Mechanical and Safety Engineering, a brandnew university faculty still with remarkable traditions.


Óbuda University Donát Bánki Faculty and Dahua Technology Hungary Kft. concluded a cooperation general agreement

The Óbuda University Donát Bánki Faculty of Mechanical and Safety Engineering consider its emphasized task that develop cooperation with a wider circle with its industrial and professional partners. We wish to accomplish that task with organizing collective educational programs and forming cooperation frameworks being aimed at professional practice locations. The cooperation agreement between Dahua Technology Hungary Kft. and Óbuda University means one of the elements of this process.

The agreement was signed ceremonially on 6th March 2020 at Óbuda University Banki Faculty. They were there at the meeting from the Faculty: Dr. Erzsébet Ancza Vice Dean for Education, Dr. Richárd Horváth Vice Dean for Research, Andrea Barta Head of Dean’s Office, József Balogh Head of Dean’s Secretariat, Prof. Dr. Tibor Kovács Associate Professor, Head of Department, Dr. Endre Szűcs Senior Lecturer, Éva Beke Erasmus Coordinator, Mihály Illés College Assistant Lecturer and György Hasilló Management Administrator. From the Company: Flynn Jiang Country Manager of Hungary, Zsolt Teleki Country Sales Manager, Zoltán Sonkoly Business Development Manager, Enikő Dudás Marketing Manager and Viktor Horváth Technical Support Engineer (Previous student from Bánki).

After József Balogh’s lead-in Endre Szűcs described our security engineering training’s characteristics. A short time after when Mr. Jiang informed us about the company, Zsolt Teleki presented Dahua’s organizational structure and the latest results of the company. Both halves expressed their cooperation intention, in which they see serious potential on the undermentioned areas:

  • - Common professional and training projects
  • - Participation in the University’s bachelor and master training programmes
  • - Applied research and establishing common research centers
  • - Provision of off-site practice locations
  • - Operation of student scholarship system
  • - Joint realization of trainee programmes
  • - Professional social-network development, realization of joint professional events
  • - Promotion of the Partner by the University and support appearance at job fairs

We are hoping that this new agreement strengthen our students practical training and familiarize innovative solutions and modern technology in a wider circle. We are confident that we can look forward to a fruitful cooperation.

It was an extremely nice experience since all participants initiated topics spontaneously, such as study groups, life at the university and offered several programs to arrange in the future.

Summary of RECCS 2019 Championship

On May 23, 2019, one of the University's largest internationally recognized championship, the RECCS Ledge Building World Championship, was successfully completed. At the event, which was held for the ninth time, nine of the 11 registered countries were represented by the total of 19 teams, with 22 pasta bridges. The Obuda University has delegated six teams (five teams from the Bánki Faculty, which started the RECCS World Championships, further to the point the Keleti Faculty of Business and Management and the Kandó Faculty of Electrical Engineering was represented by a team and a student). A team of St István University, Miklós Ybl Architecture Faculty, three teams from Brazil, two from Poland, two from Transylvania and other participants from Bulgaria, Turkey, Germany, Lithuania and Latvia have participated.

Team registration began at 7 am, and the contestants continuously arrived with their structures. After 9 o'clock, the jury members reviewed and evaluated the bridges, and the spectators also gathered, so the auditorium in the campus of the Bécsi Street, which served as the venue of the race, was full of people. The opening ceremony began a few minutes after 10 o'clock, the narrator was Dr. Tibor Kovács, associate professor, and the interpreter was Éva Kovács. We have invited István Tarlós, mayor of Budapest, to attend the World Championship, who was represented by Dr. Balázs Szeneczey the vice mayor of Budapest, who greeted the audience. The president of the competition was Prof. Dr. Zoltán Rajnai dean, honorary president was Prof. Dr. Mihály Réger rector. The president of the jury is Dr. István Oldal, vice president of Mechanical Engineering, of the Hungarian Chamber of Engineering. The other members of the jury were from teachers of the Donát Bánki Faculty of Mechanical and Security Engineering at the Obuda University, the representatives of the sponsors and the recognized personalities of other professional fields.

Prof. Dr. Mihály Réger, rector of the Obuda University, opened with his speech the World Championship.

First, there was a competition for bridges - the jury was able to evaluate 10 structures, one was outside of the racing competition. The 2013 World Record (570.3 kg, which was achieved by the students of the University of Obuda, Bánki Faculty) still has not been reached, but the results were still very nice: the Turkish team IPYMIDEAST had a load of 482.5 kg, securing their first place with it. Interestingly, this team has conquered the world record two years ago in the support category.

Brazilian Builders, a new team at RECCS World Championship, finished at the second place. As a debut of the South American joint, built an outstanding bridge with a load capacity of 355.3 kg.

Third place winner was the UTCN Transylvanian team with a load capacity of 289.6 kg.

In the second part of the world championship was the holding/bracket category, where we also saw 10 structures, and there was also a bridge outside of the competition.

At the forefront, the top runner of the category, the IPYMIDEAST team, scored 504.2 kg, which became the most competitive structure of this year's race, though their own record of 2017 could not be broken, as this year’s structure was 162.1 kilograms less.

The second place went to the Lithuanian team Marmašeliai 4.2 runner-up, their support was 413.8 kg, before it broke.

One of the teams at the Bánki Faculty of Obuda University, namely “Dezső, must die” a duo with a load of 359.4 kg finished at third place.

The large number of audience and competitors were invited for a sandwich lunch on the hanging corridor of the Bécsi Street campus, while the jury compiled the final result. After the break Dr. József Gáti, the rector's general counselor held his closing remarks, and then the result was announced.

Prizes for the first three runners-up of the two categories were presented by, Prof. Dr. Mihály Réger, rector, Gabriella Földesi chancellor, Dr. József Gáti rector’s general counselor, Dr. István Oldal vice president and Prof. Dr. Zoltán Rajnai dean of the Bánki Faculty.

This year's special prize of aesthetic was given to the team named Averi Stroy and to their structure under the same name from Bulgaria.

The Special Prize for Innovation was won by the Domiró Bridge of our University Domino team with its unique structure.

The special prize of the best cross-border Hungarian team was handed over by Gábor Bokros, Deputy Director of Marketing, to the UTCN of Cluj team, with the generous offer of Gyermelyi Zrt.

The Mechanical Engineering Division of the Hungarian Chamber of Engineers has been awarded a special prize for the best Hungarian mechanical team, which was a different team from the “Dezső must die” of Bánki’s team. This was handed over by Dr. István Oldal, vice president of Mechanical Engineering at the Hungarian Chamber of Engineers.

The special award of the Obuda University has been given to the “Stars of Eger” group by Prof. Dr. Réger Mihály rector.

The special prize of the Student Union of the Obuda University was presented to the Bánki’s team of “Etil Brigade”, by Prof. Dr. Zoltán Rajnai, dean.

The special prize of the Bánki Faculty was handed over to the Domino team by Chancellor Gabriella Földesi.

In addition, the Bridge Builders Association offered special prizes to all competitors, congratulating them on their outstanding performances.

Many people on the site were bustling through the breaks, and numerous others were able to watch the events from the live YouTube stream. There was a large number of press staff at represent to report, and to interview. As with the competitors, both the organizers and the sponsors have done their best to create a good atmosphere and a fair competition.

It was a special joy for our University that this time the best teams of three continents measured their knowledge and skills on RECCS, and that not only the teams of the Obuda University, but also of other Hungarian institutions participated in the event. We are looking forward to welcoming all of our enthusiasts and visitors to the 10th jubileeWorld Championship next year.
