In addition to its basic activities, taking on more responsibility and meeting the demand for training in the region is listed as one of the major goals in the institution s development plans. The College itself is an inspiration for investors and for launching research and development projects, therefore it actually makes the city and its surroundings a regional development centre. The primary goal of Edutus College (Edutus) is to reinforce its position as a knowledge center by establishing stronger ties with the business sector and creating new ways for cooperation in order to facilitate the competitiveness of the region through its services.
3 The Edutus College (former College for Modern Business Studies) has a successful history of nearly two decades and has been playing a special part in the Hungarian higher education system. To survive as a private college for such a long time in a dynamic country like Hungary is remarkable in itself, however, the success is possible due to its ability to reform. The College was able to renew its training programs in conformation with the modernization of the higher education system while keeping up with the market demands. This is still an ongoing process. The merger of János Harsányi College made it possible for us to offer a new and popular program: the tourism and catering course. It is important to note that our Technical Manager BSc training has been launched successfully, and that a new Mechatronics BSc training program will be announced this year. We have an ongoing project of establishing a research laboratory based on laser technology that has great importance internationally. The innovations and the expansion resulted in a decision of changing the name of the College. Maintaining respectability, the Edutus College is characterized by modernity and responsibility. Our training structure, curricula, training methods and research projects are up-to-date; and we are building responsible relationships in our external and internal environment, with our partners and everyone we are in contact with. I am confident that we will find points of mutual agreement that will benefit your company. Together we will establish stronger ties between the business system and higher education thus strengthening the competitiveness of the region. Sincerely, Dr. István Bartók Rector

The College plays a significant role in the joint research and development activities between Edutus College and Hungarian companies such as working together with the Élő Energia Kft. and Auróra 2003 Kft. on the design of equipments utilizing the energy of the sun and the wind. These projects are significant in making the concept of Tatabánya a climate-friendly city a reality. In our alternative energy production and management training programs, students such as the Assistant Energy Engineer students can participate in the measurement, processing and evaluation of the heat generation and energy production data of the Solar parabola and the vertical axis wind turbine, and the photovoltaic solar panels placed on the top of the building. Further developments are in progress for establishing new training programs and four new, modern alternative energy laboratories. For the purpose of promoting the ongoing developmental projects and the environmentally-conscious lifestyle, the Edutus College has started the Sustainable Consumption Club. Its basic goal is to represent the eco-strategy of Edutus.
