Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary Kft. and the GAMF Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science of the Neumann János University launched last year the Kecskemét engineering competition, which was also organized this year. The goal of the three-week competition was that the students elaborate practical solutions to the technical challenges provided by the engineers of the Mercedes-Benz factory. Their work was supported by the professional mentors of the plant. The specialty of this year's competition was that a female starter also strengthened the field, proving her aptitude and showing an example for young girls who are interested in the engineering field. The best three teams were awarded in the Mercedes-Benz plant on Monday, along with the award-winning bonus some EFOTT tickets and valuable Mercedes-Benz gift packages found a new owner.
