The Student Self-government organised an Open Day at the Alba Regia Technical Faculty of OE, Székesfehérvár. Participants were informed about the dual trainings, the available specializations, benefits and had an insight into the student life as well. From September, 2018, 178 internship places are waiting for dual education students at 28 companies in Székesfehérvár.
On the Open Day prospective students of the Alba Regia Technical Faculty OE were given the opportunity to get information about the BSc trainings (electrical engineer, technical manager, informatics engineer, land surveyor and mechanical engineer), which are available as dual trainings, too.
Attila Mészáros, vice-mayor of Székesfehérvfár welcomed the students on the Open Day and emphasized that the graduates from Óbuda University are the most sought-after employees in the town among the cutting-edge technology companies committed to industry 4.0.
Mészáros Attila vice-mayor has also mentioned that only robots will be used at more and more companies in the future, which will make workforce unnecessary. Only the best qualified workers with adequate experience will be employed at these companies. The Alba Regia Technical Faculty OE is able to train such experts: there will be a robot centre in the town supported by the Óbuda University and the municipality as well. Students at dual trainings will have a huge advantage at the labour market.
The Arconic laboratory, drones, Lego robot programs, 3d laser scanning and other technologies were also on the agenda on the Open Day.
Dr. Seebauer Márta , educational vice-dean of ARTF OE drew the attention to the Open Day of the Institute of Geoinformatics (Pirosalma utca 1-3) on 15th January, 2018. She has emphasized that in Székesfehérvár the Óbuda University provides the same high-quality education as in Budapest, being in full co-operation with all the faculties in the capital.
Dual education was said to consist of two 14-week educational periods with the other students and two 8-week working practice periods at the companies beginning in December and May respectively. Every student at dual education has four weeks for holiday. They get a salary even during the educational periods. The salary is the minimal wage plus benefits. Students can contract with 28 companies for 178 places in Székesfehérvár.
