Colleges for Advanced Studies are organizations organized and led by students, where everyone can utilize their already acquired professional knowledge, develop their organising, leadership and other competencies. In addition, members can take part in lectures, workshops and other professional events organized by the college members themselves. This is not only an excellent opportunity to expand contacts and broaden professional knowledge, as well as to participate in pleasant community programs, but it has also great importance in the labour market and can bring significant benefits to the prospective applicant.
BME Architect Club College for Advanced Studies is acting at the Faculty of Architecture. The organization was established in 2008 as a student circle. From 2019 it was officially accepted by the Student Representation of the faculty and received the title of qualified college for advanced studies, based on the decision of the Rating Committee requested by the National College Movement. Our main focus is, of course, architecture and all its aspects. We mainly organize professional lectures, building tours and community programs mixed with other professional programs.
We place great emphasis on the practical deepening of knowledge beyond university education, cooperation with different frontiers and the organization of programs. Our lecturers are not only architects or representatives of the fields related to architecture, but we also invite many other professionals and artists from semester to semester in order to broaden our horizons.
The BME College for Advanced Studies of Mechanical Engineering was established in 2012 by the cooperation of professional self-active groups operating at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The college has several departments.
The aim of the college is to enable its members to acquire professional knowledge that complements and deepens their university studies. By the cooperation of the departments, it is possible to perform complex professional tasks that span several departments.
All this takes place in a professional community where the goals and values are determined by professional recognition and cohesion.
The BME College for Advanced Studies of Management is an independent, non-profit organization that facilitates its members and students of engineering and economics in Budapest an outstanding acquisition of management and leadership knowledge and gain experience by applying them in practice in our projects.

BME Szilárd Zielinski College for Advanced Studies of Civil Engineering is a self-active professional group founded by students.
Therefore, among our professional programs, quality study trips are also included for civil engineering students to ensure the diversity of their training. We are expanding the range of venues of the professional study trips every year and we are already organizing almost 20-25 study trips a year.
International study trips include the Advent study trip to Vienna every year, within the framework of which, we visit the current constructions and developments in Vienna. We also visited the most important current constructions of Maribor and Ljubljana (Slovenia), Zagreb (Croatia), Cologne and Annaberg (Austria).
Our professional conferences and competitions also play a key role in our activities.
In the early 2000’s, a group of BME engineering students felt that in addition to the basic knowledge that the university provide, it was essential for success to be aware of ongoing industry research and current information. Therefore, in 2002, with the support of the Hungarian Scientific Society of Energy Economics (ETE), the Hungarian Electrotechnical Association (MEE) and the Hungarian Energy Society (MET), the College for Advanced Studies of Energy was established in cooperation with mechanical and electrical engineering students.
In order to strengthen our international relations, in 2006 we established the Hungarian student department of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), an international engineering association dealing with energy management. At the AEE World Conference in 2007, in recognition of our professional work, we were able to receive the “Best Student Chapter” award for the first time, which we have won every year since then.
Our main programs:
Weekly lectures, factory visits and forums
International conference (IYCE) organised by the college every two years
Preparatory consultations on some subjects
Solving energy tasks with the help of academics
Call for tenders for TDK and diploma projects
The László Gillemot College for Advanced Studies was founded in 2018, with the aim of providing its members and students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering with the opportunity to acquire material science knowledge not included in the university education, within the framework of lectures, courses, factory visits and special laboratory sessions. The college gives special support to the professional development and scientific student activities of its members, either by providing a dissertation, TDK supervision and participation in a conference.
KommON BME College for Advanced Studies of Communication was established in 2012 as the first communication college in the country, so it has great significance for the development of later communication organizations.
