Why choose BME's lean training

Recognised institution, well-established training

The Budapest University of Technology and Economics first launched its lean process development training in 2014. In recent years, thanks to continuous improvement, we now offer our students what is probably the best and most mature university lean process development specialist/engineer training in the country.

Professionally recognised trainers

Our trainers are heavily involved in service and manufacturing projects, and the experience gained from these projects is continuously incorporated into training. Returning from the world of work a few years later, our graduates will also share their knowledge.

Training in practice

Case studies of real-life problems, group lessons and homework, traditional exercises and factory visits help you to understand and master the theoretical foundations and professional skills.

E-learning system

A modern e-Learning system (Moodle) and constantly expanding electronic materials help you to prepare and take your exams. The entire course is also prepared for distance learning.
