Virtual reality also helps in engineering training in Bosch’s laboratory

The company has now equipped the Robert Bosch AS Engineering Training and Development Laboratory, established in 2017 at the University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, with VR tools to fill gaps in engineering education. State-of-the-art tools serve educational and research purposes, add color to training, and help launch new projects.

“One of the keys to Bosch’s success is that it sees Hungarian universities as a strategic partner and we support the training of young people. It is important for us that students can acquire up-to-date knowledge that can be applied in practice, to which we can best contribute by improving education. ”

Said Michael Zink, Chief Technical Officer of Robert Bosch Automotive Steering Ltd.

Educational development using modern technology

“We use modern VR equipment for 3D projections and presentations. Thanks to the special network, the tools allow students and teachers to work together in a virtual space. ”

– said Dr. Géza Husi, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Debrecen.

“With VR tools, students can learn about modern technologies in practice, model production tools, and track workflows as a virtual world. In addition, the development of the laboratory provides an opportunity to research the engineering applications of VR devices. ”

– said Dr. Tamás Mankovits, Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Debrecen.

The laboratory will be used primarily by mechanical engineering students of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Debrecen. New VR tools help you better understand more complex subjects such as mechanics, manufacturing technology, materials science, or machine parts. Students will also learn about modern methods of machine and product development.

Bosch also participates in dual training

Bosch’s Maklar site has been supporting the dual training in mechanical engineering at the University of Debrecen for years, so that students can get to know the operation and expectations of a modern large company in practice. Students in dual training are free to use the laboratory to write design assignments or write a dissertation or dissertation. The knowledge gained here will help the placement of newly graduated engineers, even at the Bosch Maklar site.

About Robert Bosch Automotive Steering Kft

Robert Bosch Automotive Steering Ltd. started its activities 18 years ago with 35 employees, today it employs 1,100 people. Supporting the supply of engineers has played an important role in its rapid expansion. The company supplies steering gear for passenger cars, steering columns for trucks, steering axles and refurbished parts to more than 100 vehicle manufacturers around the world. The company has been manufacturing conventional hydraulic hydraulics in Eger and electric steering systems for trucks in Maklár since 2014. Production of the main components of electric steering gear started at the Maklar factory in 2015. Today, more than three million steering systems and their components come out of the two sites each year, most of them state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly electric steering systems (EPS). The importance of the Maklár site within the group will continue to grow in the future: by the end of 2023, Bosch will make three investments in Maklár totaling more than HUF 52 billion. The investments will further increase the company’s competitiveness, expand production capacity, introduce new technologies and create a service center of global significance. These investments contribute to both the preservation of jobs and the creation of new ones.
