Foreign Language Courses

Bánki Donát Faculty of Mechanical and Safety Engineering

Bánki Donát Faculty of Mechanical and Safety Engineering, Óbuda University, is intended to establish a creative atmosphere in training courses, where students experience the technical and economic challenges of the era and seek answers to everyday problems together with professors and industrial experts. In its current training profile, our institution amalgamates innovation with traditional education, ensuring the mastering of theoretical and practical knowledge at high standards.

The management of the institution makes every effort to enable students to participate in study trips and special courses abroad. In order to facilitate this, some special subject courses have been introduced in foreign languages (English, German) at the Faculty in addition to courses with language options prescribed in the curriculum. We are working on providing training opportunities for all those who intend to continue their studies, to enable them to find good jobs at the labour market in the future.  The Faculty maintains a wide range of partnerships with European universities and colleges and international organizations. Students with the required language skills and study results can apply for study courses of one or two semesters abroad. Students are also provided opportunities to increase their knowledge by one-year industrial practice – as university students – in the framework of so-called cooperative training.

We do our best to make our training courses meet your expectations, to provide a promising future for you. After completing your studies, you can pursue further studies at our institution in the framework of Masters courses (MSc) or special development training, but you can also get a job right away. Whichever you choose, our training courses ensure your future success.

The profile of the Faculty includes Mechanical Engineering, Safety Engineering and Security Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Engineer-Teacher – and Machine Industry Engineer Assistant training with a strong IT basis, much demanded in a number of areas of the economy.

Programs in English Language

Name/academic level: Mechatronics Engineering, BSc

Course duration/ number of credits to attain: 7 semesters (2490 teaching hrs.)/ 210

Objectives: The aim of the program 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 of supervising and managing processes of manufacturing, assembly and quality regulation based on the use of mechatronics devices and equipment, constructing general mechatronic devices and operating as well as maintaining mechatronic systems, and who also possess well-founded theoretical knowledge to continue their studies in the second cycle of training (MSc). With regard to prospective specializations as well, those with a degree of BSc in Mechatronics Engineering will be able to: consider the management of technical, economic and human resources in a complex manner; assess and take the social impact of engineering activity into consideration; perform innovative thoughts and independently follow developments in science and technology; integrate skills in the respective fields of electronics, mechanical engineering and informatics; creatively apply devices such as sensors, actuators or controls in mechanisms; globally design complex systems.

Name/academic level: Mechanical Engineering, BSc

Course duration/ number of credits to attain: 7 semesters (2490 teaching hrs.)/ 210

The general aim of the Mechanical Engineering BSc program is to educate mechanical engineers who are able to operate and maintain machines and mechanical equipment, introduce and apply engineering technologies, organize and control work, perform research, design and development tasks of average complexity according to the needs of labour market, as well as have an adequate theoretical knowledge to continue the second cycle of the training.

Possessing the BSc degree mechanical engineers are well prepared to design and construct machine elements, machines, structures, apparatus and equipment, develop and manage the technology of manufacturing and assembling machine and metal and/or polymer structures. They could perform diagnostic tests of machines and structures, design the tasks of maintenance, reliability and repair technologies, control mechanical technological processes and organize the supply of mechanical equipment. Their tasks are to operate and develop logistic and material handling systems, develop industrial environment, design and manufacture environmental engineering equipment. They have knowledge on application, operation and control of mechanization technologies, in construction, design building engineering equipment, as well as prepare, organize and control constructions, design, construct, further in design, manufacture, and operate vehicles and mobile machines. They could take part in technical management of environmental problems and application of environmentally friendly technologies.

Name/academic level: Mechatronics Engineering, MSc

Course duration/ number of credits to attain: 4 semesters (1380 teaching hrs.)/ 120

Objectives: The aim of the program 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). Students are invited to have one of the following BSc degrees: mechatronics engineer, mechanical engineer, transportation engineer, electrical engineer, applied informatics.

Name/academic level: Information Security and Safety Sciences, PhD

Course duration/ number of credits to attain: 6 semesters/ 180

Objectives: Graduates of doctoral programs in information security are prepared to respond to the growing need for electronic security. Ph.D. candidates learn techniques to combat attacks on information systems and develop the skills to create new safety methods. Doctorate programs in information security focus on advanced research in data and system securities, which have become areas of concern for many corporations. The growing number of individuals capable of carrying out attacks against security systems demands a corresponding increase in highly capable security professionals. Ph.D. candidates learn to prevent security breaches by studying topics like risk management, compliance and information confidentiality, integrity and governance. Much of the work in these programs emphasizes research techniques, which are essential to stay up to date with the most recent types of electronic attacks. Students also learn to develop new technology to combat these attacks, integrating programming, systems analysis, networking and engineering. Doctorate programs in Information Security and Safety Engineering usually take 3 years to complete. The degree culminates in a dissertation, which is a work of original research that is overseen by an advisory committee. Most programs require that students complete a comprehensive exam at the end of their third year of study. With regard to prospective specializations as well, those with a degree of PhD in Information Security and Safety Engineering will be able to work as Security consultant, Senior security professional, Consultant, Professor, Senior government security professional, etc.
