Scientific Association for Mechanical Engineering

Reinforcing technical competency and liaising our members nationally in the mechanical and processing engineering, by focusing on manufacturing industry of the future – it is our mission. It is reinforced by the acceleration of the industrial transformation by catalyzing economy, interface with academia – universities, knowledge centers, research organizations – and the business sector cooperation.

Our organisation

The Association is the heir of the traditions of the Hungarian Association of Engineers (founded in 1872 by the Hungarian Association of Engineers and Architects). GTE is one of the largest scientific and social organizations, uniting technical intellectuals and is the former member of the Association of Technical and Natural Science Associations (MTESZ). GTE is a public benefit association.
