MAVEEESTEC LC BUDAPEST is an NGO founded by university students in 1986. The organization was formed with the aim to support the professional development of students (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) attending higher education and help them acquire knowledge that broadens their horizons. As an NGO we have been at work for decades to help the development of connections among students, universities and companies. Our main goal is to create opportunities for future engineers to reach their potential in academic, professional and social life.

A few examples of the local committee’s activity:

  • Challenge24 - International 24-hour Programming Contest
  • BeeSmarter - 24-hour Smartphone Programming Team Contest
  • TANDEM' - Technology AND DEsign in Motion - International workshop
  • 'CIS' - Computer Integrated Surgery - International workshop
  • ITPiknik - An open-air and informal job fair
  • SAP – „Introduction into the mysteries of SAP development” - seminar series

MAVE is a founding member of the NGO EESTEC (Electrical Engineering Students’ European assoCiation), which currently consists of 52 local committees across Europe with a membership of 4000 students. Thanks to this we can not only reach Hungarian IT and engineering students, but also numerous talented individuals from other nations in Europe and we already have experience in organizing large-scale international events

Throughout our history we have collaborated with several Hungarian universities (BUTE, ELTE, MOME, UO, PPCU, SOTE) and our events are periodically supported by various local and international companies (Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, SAP, Hungarian Telekom, Fornax, NNG, Siemens, Skype, EPAM, Ericsson, Morgan Stanley, etc.)

The Big Data Theory Workshop

What is this?

Goal of our workshop

Big Data experts and Data Scientists have ineludibile roles in developing large databases offering effective storage, quick access and efficient analysis. This process is getting more and more difficult by the day. There are many successful solutions already in industrial use, but finding the right one for the problem in question is a task that requires deep understanding of the field. Our organisation, Electrical Engineering Students' European Association Local Comittee Budapest would like to organise a one-week workshop to introduce Big Data and Data Science for our participants. Our event will

  • offer a comprehensive picture on Data science, Data mining, and Machine Learning
  • demonstrate the process of handling wast amount of data and finding patterns at the same time.
  • provide Hands-on project task by the largest bank in Hungary
Moreover, our purpose is to offer a general way of thinking for the participants so that they find their challenges in this field.

About the workshop

The workshop will consist of four different programme blocks.

Participants will learn about the various areas of Big Data during the lectures in the morning. They will also be divided into teams to work together on the given project task. At the end of the workshp, each group will present its results and solutions for the problem.

There are several options for participation. The selected EESTEC participants will be divided into teams of 3. Hungarian students can apply to join these teams, or to form their own.

You don't have a team? Don't worry, we will find one for you!

Number of participants

14 international students were selected from other EESTEC Local Committees based on prior registration.

Besides them, several Hungarian electrical engineering and IT students with active student status will have the chance to attend the morning lectures. They will also be selected based on prior registration.
