Audi Development Camp awaits future engineers at Széchenyi István University again this summer

The Audi Development Camp, a summer training programme jointly organised by Széchenyi István University and Audi Hungaria, is waiting for engineering and economics students looking for professional development and challenges this August. During the week-long English-language programme, teams of Hungarian and international young people will have to solve a project task related to an electric drivetrain. 

The the summer camp that has been organised the fourth time is an important pillar of the cooperation between Széchenyi University and Audi Hungaria, the world's largest engine manufacturer, to support practical education, where students can work on real projects and learn from renowned mentors in their field. This year, the Audi Development Camp will take place from 9 to 15 August at the university's campus in Győr, Hungary. In addition to the professional part, students will also have the opportunity to participate in recreational activities and build international contacts in an inspiring environment.

The camp offers students from all over the world a project-based training that gives them valuable work experience and even career opportunities. The programme is primarily aimed at students studying for a bachelor's or master's degree in automotive engineering, electrical engineering, mechatronics engineering, software engineering and economics at Széchenyi István University. It is important, nevertheless, that the participants receive thorough training from experts at the university and Audi before they carry out their tasks. 

In this year's project, students will have to answer a current challenge in the automotive industry: working in a team to improve the powertrain of an electric vehicle, including the battery, electric motor(s) and gearbox. They have to take into account the most important customer requirements, such as fuel consumption, range or dynamics (acceleration, top speed). The team that has created the best powertrain during the week of the camp will win the competition.

The August event will take place at the Széchenyi University campus in Győr, but students will also have the opportunity to gain insight into the ZalaZone automotive test track in Zalaegerszeg and the University's Zalaegerszeg Innovation Park, as well as visit the Audi Hungaria factory in Győr. In addition to the above, the €200 programme fee covers accommodation, lunch, training sessions, educational materials, an official T-shirt and a certificate of completion.
