Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science (GAMF)

The building complex of the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science provides a pleasant
environment for learning with its well-equipped building and airy courtyard.
The second largest building of the campus is the Neumann building, which is the centre
for information technology training. It provides the facilities for the training of computer
engineers and information technologists with its computer laboratories. The training of vehicle
engineers started in 2012, when the new course was supported by one and a half billion HUF
investment, which made it possible to install the most modern technology. The plastic- and
rubber technological laboratory is the only one of its kind in the whole country. The pneumatics
laboratory belongs to the four FESTO educational centres in Hungary. Specialists from abroad
regularly take part in continuing training at the robotics laboratory. The University’s material
scanner laboratory has some external contracts for the use of its modern devices. The newly
established laser laboratory contributes to the expansion of laser research. The welding shop
has been renovated recently and is therefore the most up-to-date training workshop in the
southern region of the Great Hungarian Plain. The CNC laboratory has also received some
new machinery in the recent past.
Address: H-6000 Kecskemét, Izsáki út 10.

Faculty of Horticulture and Rural Development

The building of the Faculty of Horticulture is situated in one of the residential suburbs of
Kecskemét, close to the town centre. Following the renovation of the main auditorium, a new
computer room and a Microbiological laboratory have also been established in the building
within the framework of an EU tender. The greenhouses and display gardens set out in the
fields on campus all contribute to its practical design for training purposes.

The recently renovated building complex of the Faculty of Teacher Training has a special
atmosphere because it includes a kindergarten, too, while its primary practice school operates
in the building of the Faculty of Horticulture. Classrooms and meeting rooms, such as the
banquet hall, the council hall and the lecture hall are located in the main building. The
building walls frequently display decorative art and art exhibits created by the artists who
teach at the college. The IT Centre, which is popular among the students, is located in the main
building, too. The most modern building on the campus is the Centre of Methodology with
multifunctional rooms. The building includes a dance room and a Natural Sciences centre as
well. On top of the Methodology building there is an observatory; it contains an astronomical
telescope for observing the Sun and other celestial bodies. The Faculty is the regional centre
of the European Consortium for the Certificate of Attainment in Modern Languages (ECL).
