BME Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering is an accredited source of engineering studies since 1951, transferring knowledge in the fields of transportation processes, vehicle operation, planning and control, furthermore ensuring relevant complex technical understanding. The transportation engineering course started with these objectives in the city of Szeged under the name of Technical University of Transportation (KME). In 1953 the university moved to Szolnok, in 1955 the university got reorganized and became a Faculty of the University of Civil Engineering and Transportation Engineering (ÉKME), which resulted in the permanent migration to Budapest in 1957. The faculty reached its current status with the fusion of two technical universities in 1967, when the university got its current name, Budapest University of Technology (BME). In the present the university can fulfill the educational standards within the areas of transportation, logistics, transportation vehicles, manufacturing and servicing of material handling machines.
In the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering one can acquire knowledge in the fields of transportation, vehicle and logistics related studies both on Bachelor and Master level. Transport processes, systems and management are the main topics of the Transportation Engineering BSc programme. Knowledge about vehicles, shipment and machinery can be acquired in the Vehicle Engineering BSc programme. While complex corporate logistics processes can be studied in the Logistics Engineering BSc programme. Masters level studied are available in the following three programmes: Transportation Engineering, Vehicle Engineering and Logistics Engineering.
Those who achieve the best results while finishing the MSc degree can apply to our Phd programme and can participate in the studies of Kandó Kálmán Doctoral School, which is one of the leading source for the education of the best transportation and vehicle engineer specialists.
It has been always important for our faculty to further educate our graduated engineers, thus an economics engineering courses were organized. According to current needs our courses are always being expanded besides the traditional vehicle engineer, urban transportation and traffic safety, with new postgraduate specifications.
We are working together – through our close and intense relations – with the leading national and international scientific organizations, thus further developing the beneficial industrial synergies.
