About SZEnergy team...
In the SZEnergy team, we consider the development of students to be our mission. In addition to university classes, we provide professional experience to all our team members and provide them with the mentoring necessary for development. The SZEnergy team is an investment in the future for both companies and students, as many of our talented team members will later work for our partner companies.
Since 2005, under the mentorship of instructors and researchers from the Department of Road and Railway Vehicles and the Automotive Research Center, we have built numerous electric-powered racing cars. At first, solar panels provided the electrical energy, and later the team developed and built battery-operated, purely electric cars. Our cars have already proven the results of the team's research and development, both nationally and internationally. Every year since 2008, we have participated in the world's largest energy efficiency competition, the Shell Eco-marathon. Our team operates as a section of the Jedlik Ányos College of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. The operation of our team is supported by the Student Public Benefit Association for the Development of Alternative Transportation.
The Shell Eco-marathon is an energy efficiency competition that has been held for more than 30 years. In the competition, students compete with their own designed and built racing cars to see who can cover the greatest possible distance with a unit of energy. At the Shell Ecomarathon, teams can start in 3 energy classes: pure electric, hydrogen and internal combustion propulsion. Within this, they can enter in the prototype and small city car categories. Our team is participating in the international competition in the category of small electric city car.
Department of mechanical engineering
In order to comply with the unconventional competition regulations, we design many unique components. These elements are placed in a simulation environment and then manufactured using additive technologies.
Construction design tasks
Engineering project management
Department of electronics
In our electronics department, we develop our vehicle's own electronic system, as well as develop our own designed printed circuits, for which we produce both the hardware and software parts within the team.
