More than 30 teachers and students arrived from Albania, Croatia, Eastern-Macedonia, Poland and Romania, from different universities taking part from 8thApril 2019 until 12thApril 2019. According to the agenda having presented their introduction participants listened to the lectures of guest teachers and visited International Mobility Center in Rector’s Office, some university laboratories, botanical garden, and library. Dean of Faculty of Engineering had a presentation about dual education form in Szeged, which was very interesting for our guests; it was difficult to keep agenda, because of many questions.


Among vocational program, they visited Regional Control Centre of Hungarian Railways, MIZO Ltd. Diary Factory, ContiTech Rubber Ltd. and SZKT Public Transport Company of Szeged and learned more their operations and special projects (e.g. hybrid trolleybuses). In free time, it was possible to visit downtown and Kiskundorozsma Windmill. Optional cultural program was a short visit in National Heritage Park in Opusztaszer.


Our guests, either students or teachers completed their CEEPUS reports and mentioned nice days in them and expressed wishes to continue mobility in 2019/2020 academic year in 6 accepted networks.

We thanks for preparing and managing CEEPUS Week again for representatives of International Mobility Centre of University of Szeged, management and staff of Faculty of Engineering and Tempus Public Foundation.
