Jizzakh Polytechnic Institute lecturers at Bánki Faculty

On April 22, 2024, as one of the stops of their three-week study trip, Jizzakh Polytechnic Institute staff, Azizbek Nishonov, head of Joint Educational Department, Utkirjon Rahmatov, head of the International Cooperation Department, and lecturer Pulatov Sukhrobjon visited our Faculty. On behalf of the Faculty management, Dr. Erzsébet Ancza, Vice-Dean of Education, Bence Hajdu from the OUR Team Formula Student team, Ábel Bokodi and György Lovassy from the Pneumobil team welcomed the guests. During the conversation, they got to know the training portfolio of the Faculty and the possibilities of cooperation related to education.

After the meeting they went down to the labs and checked our student groups with great interest, first they got to know the components of the first generation racing car of the Formula Student team, and then they got a glimpse of the plans of the newly built second car. In the Pneu Labs workshop, they received first-hand information not only about pneumatic vehicles and their developments, but also about other interesting projects of the students. We were very pleased that they discussed these with our students, focusing on their technical solutions and background.

A successful training session on the topic of popularization of electrical mobility

A successful training session on the topic of popularization of electrical mobility at OE BGK for university lecturers from the Western Balkan countries

A three-day training and meeting took place between 05.12.2023 and 07.12.2023 at the Bánki Donát Faculty of Mechanical and Safety Engineering within the framework of the Erasmus+ Capacity Building for Higher Education (https://bgk.uni-obuda.hu/pelmob/). The purpose of the training is primarily to share educational methods and best practices with the instructors of the participating partner institutions.

The event was opened by Prof. Dr. Zoltán Rajnai, dean of Bánki Faculty, Obuda University, who emphasized the internationalization efforts of Óbuda University and welcomed the representatives of the participating Higher Education Institutions from Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Slovenia, Greece and Poland. Prof. Dr. Nebojsa Arsic, the rector of the University of Pristina in Kosovska Mitrovica, the professional leader of the PELMOB project, expressed his great pleasure that close cooperation is realized with Óbuda University in the implementation of several successful international projects. The professional leader of the project on behalf of Óbuda University is Dr. Ágota Drégelyi-Kiss, associate professor at the Department of Manufacturing Technology, OE BGK.

The series of professional lectures began with Dr. Zsolt Hajnalka, head of the section responsible for international relations of the Hungarian Association of Vehicle Parts Manufacturers. In his presentation, he highlighted the challenges of introducing alternative drives and presented the possibilities of the Zalazone Automotive Test Track. In his presentation, Dr. György Czifra, lecturer at ÓE BGK, detailed the alternative energy sources in the field of electric cars, especially the solution for hydrogen-powered vehicles.

For the second day of the training, a visit was organized to the Automotive Technology Development Center of the Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus. The Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus plays a decisive role in the development of electromobility and automated driving solutions. During the visit, a presentation was given on the testing phases of electric drives, after which we were able to gain an insight into the work of a laboratory presenting physical tests.

On the last day of the PELMOB project meeting in Budapest, Dr. Balázs Mikó, habilitated associate professor at the Department of Manufacturing Technology, ÓE BGK, explained the relationship between Industry 4.0 and electromobility, after which a visit to the laboratories of the Faculty of Economics followed.

During the training, we hosted nearly thirty people at the Bánki Faculty, and they watched the professional materials prepared by our colleagues with great interest. We closed the first year of the PELMOB project with this training, further the focus will be on the development of curricula and subjects by Higher Educational Institutions of the Western Balkan countries.

student with active student status in a Hungarian higher education institution.

In case of multiple authorship, up to a maximum of three students may apply with the same work. IEEE membership is not required for the application. Works that were already published or even awarded elsewhere are not excluded from the competition. A multi-authored work with a co-author who does not have an active student status (e.g. supervisor) can only be submitted if the name of the applying student(s) appears in the author list prior to the name of the non-applying co-author(s).

Eligible works:

  • scientific journal papers
  • scientific conference papers
  • TDK theses
  • documented project works (provided they were not the parts of compulsory studies)

A diploma thesis/work cannot be submitted, as it is a compulsory part of the university studies. If a
diploma thesis/work was written on the basis of a TDK work, this does not exclude the possibility of
submitting the TDK thesis, however in this case solely the TDK work can be submitted, omitting all the
subsequent results that were contributed as part of the diploma work.

A judging committee invited by the Chair of IEEE HS will rank the applications. Based on this ranking
the Chair of IEEE HS determines the final prizes. Shared awards can also be issued. If a large number of
applications are received, the judging committee may categorize the entries retrospectively.
The form of recognition is a certificate in English, signed by the Chair of IEEE HS and the Awards &
