János Czetz (June 8, 1822 – September 6, 1904.) was a prominent Hungarian freedom fighter of Armenian origin, a military commander during the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, and the organizer of Argentina's first national military academy.

From 1870 Cztetz was one of the main organizers and first director of the National Military College, which was the most important contribution of the military government Sarmiento and his collaboration managed to be one of the most advanced armies outside of Europe. Above all, installed at the College - and indirectly in the Army - a very strict discipline, which would help to end the long period of the Argentine civil wars . He published a "Treatise on permanent and temporary fortification".
