When establishing the lab’s pool of cutting-edge computers, the Authority created a structured network with the university’s existing computers that will mainly serve the secure development of broadband networks.
“The Kandó Kálmán Electrical Engineer Faculty of the Óbuda University is a place where networks are used to build additional networks. This is far more than a technical challenge: infocommunications is one of the most humane fields - as a social being, man lives in networks, while creating further networks. Our lives are fulfilled when our individual and community networks are organized, well-functioning and of good quality,” said Monika Karas, President of the NMHH at the opening ceremony, expressing her hope that the infocommunications lab will not only serve network security testing but becoming a new hub for the future generations of telecommunications experts as well.
Levente Kovács, Rector of the Óbuda University, also spoke at the grand opening event. He explained that the faculty’s predecessor, the Kandó Kálmán Electrical Engineer Technical College, is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year. The launch of the new infocommunications lab is an event worthy of this anniversary, creating a space where students can work in the spirit of digital industry and industry 4.0, which will enhance the reputation of the Kandó Kálmán Electrical Engineer Faculty.
Prior to the labs launched this year in Győr and at the Puskás Tivadar Infocommunications Technical School and College in Budapest, NMHH has launched eleven other university media workshops since 2012. The Authority had the same goal with all the labs: providing students with technology that can compete with the world’s top educational institutions.
