University of Szeged vehicles participate in international competition

Students at the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Science and Informatics at the University of Szeged regularly complete both locally and internationally with vehicles that they themselves have designed and constructed.

The University of Szeged is one of the big names in the field of pneumobiles designed and driven by students. At the 8th International Aventics Pneumobile Competition in 2015, University of Szeged students took part with four individually designed and constructed compressed air-driven vehicles and achieved 2nd place in the senior category, 7th place in the arcade class, and 8th place in the acceleration section. In view of the fact that they were competing against 50 other teams, these results can be regarded as excellent. Another important event in the pneumobile calendar is the Kecskemét Gala Race, which provides an opportunity for designers of air-compressed vehicles to prove themselves and also to have great fun.

In 2015, 14 teams from 7 countries competed from the viewpoint of acceleration and in a 50 m long-distance race, matching their knowledge and technological prowess. Two of the three teams from the University of Szeged scored podium finishes. Team Diff-Air won 2nd place, and team Pepp-Air 3rd place in the acceleration race.


Szeged pneumobiles were recently tested by Norbert Michelisz, Eurocup champion and winner of numerous titles in the World Touring Car Championships, who praised them highly as very well-designed vehicles that work perfectly and without technical failures.

Compressed air-driven vehicles are not the only ones in which students from the University of Szeged have attained great results. In 2015, the STECO group of students from the Faculties of Engineering and Science and Informatics entered one of the world’s most demanding competitions for the first time: the international Shell Eco marathon. Their streamlined model vehicle Zeus, an eco-friendly, independently designed and constructed electric car prototype, weights about 30 kg, has three wheels and is mostly constructed from bicycle components; it is driven by a 250 W DC motor with 14 charged batteries. The team of talented young students reached the goal they had set for themselves: they successfully qualified for the Rotterdam race track by fully meeting the standards of the strict technological and safety regulations of the competition.

SZTE Experience


Nazrin_BakirovaNazrin Bakirova- International Economy and Business

I came from a city where young women have recently successfully fought against the mentality that had not allowed them to go to study abroad.5 years ago families were extremely protective over their daughters, but nowadays it has been changed into a new perception which allows girls to have the freedom to choose their way of life: career and personal development.

My name is Cherbi Imane and I am 23 years old from Algeria. I am spending my last semester at the University of Szeged Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Being an MA student of Applied Linguistics, University of Szeged offered me a chance to gain sufficient knowledge about my field of study. I choose the University of Szeged simply because it is a highly ranked academic institution both nationally and internationally; also because of the variety of programs that they have for international students.

I love everything in Szeged: every corner of every street, I will always keep them in my heart. I take photos of the city when walking around and I am planning to launch a blog to promote this beautiful corner of Hungary among international students. People of Szeged are caring, always smiling and we are living peacefully together. I have never felt isolated or neglected. As a coffee lover, i always enjoy having my favorite type of coffee in different coffees in Szeged. Lookin for calmness and nature vibes, I would certainly walk by the Tisza river whenever I want.
