Hungarian Cement Concrete and Lime Association
Magyar Cement-, Beton- és Mészipari Szövetség


Through its new profile strategy, CeMBeton supports the higher education and training of professionals. As the development of the construction industry accelerates changes constantly, the Hungarian Cement Concrete and Lime Association has made arrangements with higher education institutes. The goal of this liaison is to help newly graduated professionals to gain up-to-date information and practical experiences.

Due to the constant evolvement, technological innovation and the ever-changing environment and regulation around the industry, it is difficult for high education institutions to stay up-to-date with these developments and innovations. As the manufacturers in the industry are pioneers in applying new technologies, the knowledge transfer coming from them towards the engineers of the future leads to the rise of the quality of education.

This cooperation has many benefits regarding the future of the industry as well. The length of the onboarding and training process can be shortened when the students entering the labour market already have practical knowledge, and these experiences can be also used if they are starting their professional career in other fields as e.g. designers or employees in other professional fields. Thanks to their wider knowledge they can act with more prudence, and by knowing the regulatory environment as well, they can have a full overview of the whole process. Education can thus create tangible advantage for the country.

The Association made an arrangement with the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, the University of Miskolc, the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Pécs, and the Ybl Miklós Faculty of Architecture of the Szent István University. The experts of the Association also help the Faculty of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Transport Sciences of the Szent István University with practical training materials.
