Level of degree: Master, abbr.: MSc-degree

Qualification written in the degree: Mechanical Engineer

Language of study: English

Specialization: Materials and Manufacturing Technologies

Area of education: engineering

Duration of programme: 4 semesters

Number of credit points necessary for the MSc degree: 120 credit points


The aim of study programme:

Mechanical Engineering MSc education basically has one specialization in English language: Materials and Production Technologies, which covers designing and elaborating production processes, the conceptions of manufacturing technologies as well as implementing devices and systems, modelling, operating, maintaining, supervising and organizing production tasks. This specialization considers the needs of the partner industrial companies. The curriculum of Mechanical engineering MSc (in English) is structured in 4 semesters, each semester having 14 weeks of teaching activity. Thus, the curriculum includes the subjects of advanced knowledge in the field of Mechanical Engineering and thorough knowledge of disciplines necessary for a rapid integration of the master program graduate in the labor market.

University of Győr has extensive contacts with industrial partners who contribute to several of their taught courses through active teaching, curriculum development, and panel discussion. Recent contributors in the area of mechanical engineering include AUDI Hungaria Zrt, Rába Futómű Kft and SMR Automotive Mirror Technology Hungary Bt. 


The content of the study programme:

The percentage of each training area/field:

  • Knowledge of Natural Sciences: 20 credit points
  • Knowledge of Economics and Human Sciences: 10 credit points
  • Professional Core Material: 30 credit points
  • Differentiated Professional Knowledge: 30 credit points
  • Diploma Thesis: 30 credit points


Professional Practice/Internship:

The mandatory internship period of min. 4 weeks has to be absolved outside of university at a suitable professional location.


The supervisory system of knowledge contains the following items:

Acquisition of the prescribed knowledge requirement, internship absolved, diploma thesis completed and final examination absolved.


Thesis requirements:

The diploma thesis is the elaboration of a specified engineering or research task. This task must be based on the acquired knowledge of the student and on state of the art know how of the topic based on literature. The elaboration process is supported by at least one supervisor of the university and can be assisted by an external industrial expert. The duration for completion is two semester.

The candidate thesis proves that he/she has obtained and can apply sufficient knowledge/skills in order to resolve a dedicated professional analysis, design or development task in vehicle engineering on his/her own, in addition to creating added value.


Conditions for taking the final exam:

Meeting the requirements of the curriculum, including:

  • obtaining at least 120 credit points out of which the thesis represents 30 credit points,
  • fulfilling the conditions of practical training/internship as part of the curriculum,
  • diploma thesis evaluated and approved by the reviewer.


Conditions for issuing the degree:

In accordance with the 51§ of the Act CCIV/2011 on the National Higher Education, students studying and completing a course held in a foreign language are exempted from taking language examinations regardless the level and number of language examinations laid down in the Educational and Outcome Requirements (KKK). Graduating from a course held in a foreign language implies that the output requirements on foreign language are considered to have been completed.


Parts of the final exam:

  • comprehensive oral exam including the designated areas of the designated courses (to which it belongs minimum 10 credit points) related to the topic of the thesis,  .
  • evaluation and defence of the thesis.


Results of the final exam:

The arithmetical mean of the following two results: the grade received for the defence of the thesis (integer number) and the grade received for the comprehensive oral exam (rounded to two decimal places). If any of the two grades is a “fail” the final exam is regarded as “fail”.


Assessment of the degree:

The arithmetical mean of four following results: 1) the grade received for the thesis (integer number), 2) the grade received for the defence of the thesis (integer number), 3) the grade received for the comprehensive oral final exam (rounded to two decimal places), and 4) the corrected cumulative credit index (rounded to two decimal places).
