Academic Programs

There were two significant milestones in the history of the Faculty namely, the foundation of two main courses: electrical engineering (1988) and information technology (1991). At that time the predecessor of the faculty, the Department of Automation was responsible for these courses. Since there was an increasing demand for experts in computer science and information technology, it was inevitable to set up an autonomous institute. Thus, in 1995 the Institute of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering was established with four departments. The Institute – as a result of a Government decision – became faculty in Sept 2003. It was crucial from the point of view that as a faculty it has independent educational, recruiting strategy, research and financial activities.


Under-and postgraduate programs offered

These programs stem from actual economic and social demands and provide students with convertible knowledge and professional skills in order to start a successful career. The Faculty prides itself on having a full-scale of educational system from the BSc to PhD programs.

  • BSc in Business Informatics (in Hungarian) – full-time program
  • BSc in Computer Science Engineering (in Hungarian) – full-time or part-time program
  • BSc in Computer Science (in Hungarian and in English) – full-time program
  • BSc in Electrical Engineering (in Hungarian) – full-time program
  • MSc in Computer Science Engineering (in Hungarian and in English) – full-time or part-time program
  • MSc in Logistics Engineering (in Hungarian) – full-time or part-time program
  • Information Technology Engineering at ISCED level 5 (in Hungarian) – full-time program
  • Software and Information Technology at ISCED level 5 (in Hungarian) – full-time program
  • Supply chain optimization in petroleum industry, postgraduate program (in English) full-time program
  • Large Enterprise IT Systems Administation, postgraduate program (in Hungarian) part-time program

 


The PhD Program

The Faculty of Information Technology is one of the most strongly research oriented organisations of the University. The head of the Programme is Prof Katalin Hangos. The early recruitment of talented students is important therefore students in their 3rd or 4th year can join the work of one of the Faculty’s research groups. The PhD degree at the Faculty is a taught degree. PhD students must carry out research on an individual basis under the guidance of a professor. Having a new scientific result they must present it at national and international conferences, furthermore, they have to take part in project works. In order to obtain a PhD degree students are required to have at least two publications in refereed international journals. The most outstanding students have opportunity to spend one or more semesters at one of the research partners of the Faculty. The PhD course ideally requires 6 semesters, this period may be prolonged depending on the topic.


Computer Science Bsc (in English)

Duration: 6 semesters
Tuition Fee: 2200 EUR/semester
Head of School: Dr. Zoltán Süle
The aim of study is to train computer program designers who are able to develop, install, maintain and operate software oriented IT tools and systems, and who are able to work individually or in teams. They are also provided with appropriate basic theoretical knowledge to continue their studies at MSc level.

Main topics of study:

  • mathematics and economics
  • computer science (theory of computation, data structures and algorithms, computational complexity, artificial intelligence)
  • programming (programming languages and techniques, software technology)
  • information systems (databases, design and modeling, web technologies)
  • computer systems (computer architectures, computer and telecommunication networks, operating systems)
  • optional professional subjects

The students also become experienced in project- and team-work working with numerous R&D activities of the faculty with top international companies, and may be involved in research activities. The R&D areas of the faculty include several aspects of IT security, medical informatics, systems engineering, lighting technologies, image processing, infocommunication technologies, sensor networks, controlling and optimizing systems.


Computer Science Engineering Msc (in English)

Duration: 4 semesters
Tuition Fee: 2200 EUR/semester
Head of School: Dr. Botond Bertók

The aim of study is to train IT engineers who are highly qualified in natural sciences and engineering, and are able to design IT systems and devices, develop and integrate IT systems, perform and coordinate research and development activities. They are also provided with appropriate basic theoretical knowledge to continue their studies at PhD level.

Main topics of study:

  • natural sciences (information theory, combinatorial methods and algorithms, mathematical analysis, numerical mathematics, computer controlled systems)
  • professional core courses (discrete event systems, secutity techniques of information systems, theory of computation, measurement of pictorial information, artifical intelligence, experts systems, operations research)
  • optional professional subjects.

Possible specializations during the study:

  • Medical informatics
  • System and process optimization
  • Design and operation of computer networks

The students also become experienced in project- and team-work working with numerous R&D activities of the faculty with top international companies, and may be involved in research activities. The R&D areas of the faculty include several aspects of IT security, medical informatics, systems engineering, lighting technologies, image processing, infocommunication technologies, sensor networks, controlling and optimizing systems.
