First, engineering education in Hungary is introduced, the location, the role, and the history of Budapest University of Technology are presented. The lifetime achievements of Theodor von Karman (Kármán Tódor) is summarized, which already leads to the international perspectives of mechanical engineering by means of his best ever student, Tsien Hsue-Shen (钱学森). Karman’s wisdom has an essential effect on many fields and topics of mechanical engineering through the globe from Japan through China and Germany to the United States. The story of the development of jet propulsion predicts the subsequent challenge: space exploration. Two examples are mentioned for research cooperation between our universities. The closing remarks deal with the task of how to attract excellent students to mechanical engineering which seems to remain the driving force for our technological development in the future.
