Lóránt Kovács, PhD, dean and college professor

 

“Wherever we look in Hungary — whether at big companies or, just as often, at small and medium-sized enterprises — we see mechanical engineers, technical managers, IT engineers and vehicle engineers who are GAMF graduates, and who are often employed in top positions or manage their own companies or businesses. Over the past five decades, GAMF has become a trademark that provides not only great credentials for its graduates, but represents state-of-the-art expertise and competencies to develop and self-educate. Based on the German example, the Faculty – as a torch-bearer in Hungary – introduced in 2012 the dual-training system, developed in close cooperation with its business partners. This system is able to meet shifting economic expectations in a more flexible way than other training systems used previously. Since then, the 'Kecskemét model' has emerged as an example to follow on a countrywide basis. Our achievements reflect a wide-ranging partnership: SMEs, big companies, professional organisations and local municipalities form the 'tissue' that guarantees a common and successful future.”
