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

Tamerlan Mendybayev – Faculty of Agriculture

My name is Tamerlan Mendybayev. I am from capital of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan. Currently I am first year student at the Faculty of Agriculture. I chose the University of Szeged as my study destination for several reasons: firstly, it is a well-known applied science institution in Europe and the best in Hungary. Secondly, the program is designed with a significant focus on the developing practical skills of the students and there is a University pilot farm where students keen their skills and implement their knowledge in practice. Undoubtedly, University of Szeged is a place where students become professionals in their academic field.

Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.
