The Faculty of Engineering maintains an impressive range of facilities tailored to support high quality research. These facilities are available to all staff and students and also serve as great resource for companies looking for specialist research services. Our major equipment, high performance computing and instrumentation facilities provide a strong foundation for our research in science and engineering. As part of our research strategy and vision, we spend about 200m HUF each year on reinforcing our existing research infrastructure and building world-class environment for our outstanding researchers, teachers and internationally acclaimed research teams. Funding for the purchase, replacement and upgrade of research equipment is mostly obtained from research partnerships with a range of companies from the industrial sector.
 
Research in the Institute of Materials Engineering is supported by one of the largest and best-equipped facilities of the Faculty. The range of systems covers up-to-date instrumentation for materials science (e.g. laser particle sizer, Bruker Avance II NMR spectrometer, Philips PW 3710 X-ray diffractometer, PW 2404 X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, Oxford ARC-MET 8000-es metal analyser, Philips XL30 ESEM environmental scanning electron microscope Netzsch-Balzers TG-MS, Bio-Rad FTS-185 FTIR, Agilent Technologies1100 Series LC/MSD Trap VL Liquid chromatograph-mass spectrometer, Agilent Technologies1100 Series GC 6890N, MS 5973 Gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer, ELAN DRC II. Perkin Elmer ICP-MS). The SETARAM C80D high-pressure reaction calorimeter is unique in Hungary.
 
Research in environmental science uses a range of state-of-the-art technology for dating biological and mineral deposits; for tracing the evolution of atmospheric gases, groundwater, surface water, soils, and a range of fauna; for selecting sites and analysing these samples. This technology includes: stable and radiogenic isotope and high-resolution trace element analysis by mass spectrometry; inorganic and organic geochemical analysis; computed X-ray tomography; a microbeam laboratory; computer modelling of the global hydrologic cycle and groundwater flow; remote sensing of changes in the Earth's surface and atmosphere; undersea sampling/analysis; aerogeophysics; and modelling and inversion.
 
The Institute of Physics and Mechatronics houses one of the region’s leading centres for research in mechatronical measurement technics. Research in mechatronics is supported with modern laser instrumentation (e.g. LOTIS TII LS-2137U Nd:YAG impulse laser), CNC units, modern car simulator (real-time for use of designing and testing automotive control units(ABS, ESP, ACC) HIL (Hardware-In-the-Loop)
Research in chemical and environmental technologies is supported with pilot water and wastewater plants, Dest-Star Advance automated batch distillation unit, 50-litre monofluid batch reactor cascade (Siemens PCS7-es DCS process control and a variety of process development tools (ASPEN, UniSim, PI, Matlab/Simulink, Comsol, Simul8, Bizagi), including a 104-core computer cluster.

Funded largely from MOL Group, the Pignat high-pressure reactor system is a modern and well-equipped pilot-scale unit of the Faculty.

The Institute of Radiochemistry and Radioecology has an excellent reputation for quality research undertaken in radiochemistry labs and lab facilities with spectroscopic and analytical equipment for radioactive samples. Within these state of the art radiochemistry laboratories there is a range of dedicated spectroscopic and radioanalytical equipment including controlled atmosphere facilities; equipment for thermal and elemental analysis; UV/vis/nIR and IR/Raman spectrometers, with fibre optic dipping optrodes for in situ measurements; electrochemical equipment for cyclic voltammetry and controlled potential coulometry; and comprehensive radioanalytical facilities including alpha-spectroscopy, low background liquid scintillation counting and low background gamma-spectroscopy. We also have access to an ICPMS facility suitable for the analysis of transuranium elements.
The RS-03 automated dose meter transmits its signal to OSJER-network. The Institute of Chemistry is equipped with a 400MHz NMR spectrometer that contributes significantly to our scientific research.
