Automotive – Techtogether

Since 2014, we organise the Techtogether Automotive Hungary engineering competition every year at the same time with AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY. The competition makes a great chance for vehicle builder students’ team to find new supporters for their developments and also companies can find the prospective coworkers.

As usual, the AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY EXHIBITION set the goal of functioning as a job fair for young people attending the exhibition. In this way, the event provides a highly unique environment for conducting the 7th TECHTOGETHER competition. The aim of the competition is to establish closer ties between technical higher education students and automotive firms. At the same time, through the involvement of the exhibitor vehicle construction teams, the competition promotes technical courses for young, high school-age students participating at the event as spectators.
