Cooperation agreement with ContiTech Fluid Automotive Hungária Kft.

ContiTech Fluid Automotive Hungária Kft. in Makó and SZTE have signed a cooperation agreement that involves the development of practice oriented training and a new scholarship system.

The agreement was signed on 5th September 2017 by Rector Prof. Dr. Gábor Szabó, Judit Fendler, Chancellor of SZTE, Mihály Nagy, CEO and Éva Vancsik, the company’s HR-manager. Rector Prof. Dr. Gábor Szabó underlined that the cooperation with ContiTech is in line with the University’s long-term strategy, which involves the development of technical training, the increase of the number of students involved in those trainings, and the strengthening of the trainings’ practical background. Industrial partners operating near Szeged are especially important to the University.

 

SZTE and the Makó-based company have been maintaining a close cooperation for years. The company announced a dual training with the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering in 2015. The Department of Mechatronics Engineering will also be involved in this in the future. The aim of this special training is to enable students to gain practical experience beside theoretical knowledge.

This fall will see the launch of the Continental scholarship in several faculties of SZTE, offering financial assistance to talented students, offering thus the possibility for them to be hired by the company immediately after their graduation. The university and the company will develop a closer cooperation in the field of research and development as well.

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.
