University rank #1001 (WUR) Gödöllő, Hungary
During establishing the goals of the Mechanical Engineering PhD School of Szent István University, the following principles were taken into consideration: The predictable requirement based on developing tendency of the technical background in the agriculture and food industry is that the production and application of the machines and tools should be environment-friendly, material-and energy-save.

On the other hand it is important to organize the existing equipment to logistical system, and arrange ecological operation and recycling in the strategy of the research. In the strategy of the research some promoted new topics should be emphasized which serve up to-date production technologies in bio-system engineering systems.

The global increase of agricultural production has to be realized in an ecological balance having decreased volume of the applied chemicals and energies. 

For sustainable development it has a basic interest to decrease the polluting materials getting into the environment and to economize with the resources. 

Another important goal is to introduce the renewable energy resources to the traditional energy processes in mechanical engineering. It helps to increase the competitiveness and the sustainability, as well.

The Mechanical Engineering programme is offered by the Szent István University.
