Our top prize-winning honours

CLAAS UniTech Engineering Student Competition

In the finals of the CLAAS UniTech Engineering Student Competition, held in April 2018, engineering students put the might of agricultural machines to the test on the premises of CLAAS Hungária Zrt. in Törökszentmiklós — machines that the students had built themselves. In the course of the three-round finals, a professional jury decided which machines were the fastest, the most heavy-duty, and — just as importantly — had the best harvesting capacity.

Second-year engineering students from John von Neumann University — András Baji, Károly Farmosi and Csaba Birkás — built a tandem combine, which was simultaneously operated by two of them while the third member of the team gave operating instructions over the phone. Our students won the competition, and brought home a prize of one million Hungarian forints, as well as an opportunity to visit the CLAAS headquarters in Germany.


Pneumobile Competition

In 2018, the Jok-Air team of John von Neumann University won the 11th International Aventics Pneumobile Competition.

The race, which showcased numerous innovative solutions and provided the viewing public with many an exciting moment in the “Archbishop’s Garden” in Eger, was organised with the participation of 36 teams from 20 universities and nine countries. Thanks to an equally talented field of competitors, each event was won by a different team.

After combining the intermediate results, the Kecskemét team came out on the top and were awarded the “Best Pneumobile of Aventics 2018” trophy, as well as the accompanying prize of one million Hungarian forints.

Dual training system

Industry relations ― the dual-training system

 

Prof. Károly Belina, CSc, PhD, Department of Materials Technology of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science (GAMF)

When were dual trainings launched at Kecskemét College, and why?

We began to devise this type of training in 2010 with the participation of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary Kft. and Knorr-Bremse Fékrendszerek Kft. Our aim was to bolster the quality of the training and to ensure a continuous supply of engineers for these companies. Originally, we were contacted by Mercedes-Benz: the company management already had a good impression about the dual-training system, as most of them had pursued such studies in Germany. Our dual trainings were launched in September 2012.

At which Faculty was the dual training form first offered, and which Faculties are involved in it now?

The dual training form was first introduced at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science (GAMF). Currently, there are dual trainings on offer at every Faculty, with the exception of the Teacher Training Faculty. However, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science (GAMF) continues to have the highest number of students enrolled in this type of training.

Where does this form of training come from?

It is based on a German model, which was applied by the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg, with 12-week cycles per semester. It was this system that we adapted to a Hungarian context. Our training regime is based on a 13+8+13+16-week schedule.

What are the main aims of the dual-training system?

Our fundamental objective is to enhance students’ expertise, and to achieve this primarily through practice. During the programme, students learn to apply their theoretical knowledge while working at the companies. Moreover, so-called soft skills are developed during the in-company training periods. By the time of their graduation, our beginner engineers already possess some work experience within the industry.
