    • In the Jedlik Laboratories, researchers of our faculty conduct their scientific activity in cooperation with PhD and MSc students. This center for research, education and technology was founded with the active support and collaboration of five research institutes of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (computer engineering, medicine, material science, enzymology and physiology), the Semmelweis Medical University, as well as some major research companies.
    • Our Doctoral School is strongly linked with research. Within this framework, several PhD doctoral titles and patents have been awarded. Former students either return to the field of education or join applied research through spin-off companies. At present there are three spin-off companies at our faculty.
  • BSc in Computer Science Engineering (in Hungarian)
  • BSc in Molecular Bionics (in Hungarian)
  • Biodata Analysis program (in English)
    • The online Biodata analysis program is a one-year, 60-credit post-graduate program providing enhanced knowledge and skills in the analysis of large-scale molecular data from biological systems. The specific aim of the program is to prepare the students to meet the demands of academic and industrial organizations performing high-throughput gene expression and sequencing studies.
    • The program is fully online with courses accessible through an e-learning system and the practices include substantial individual project work with hands-on help of the lecturers available on demand.
  • MSc in Computer Science Engineering (in English)
    • One of the strengths and special feature of the Computer Science Engineering MSc program at PPCU FIT is the specific synergy of information technologies and life sciences. Our goal is to teach human-centered information technology with the fundamental concepts of life sciences.
    • Our graduates, depending on their specialization, can deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of software design, communication networks, intelligent systems, sensing computers, mobile applications or image processing.
    • Students are given the opportunity to take part in state-of-the-art research and development projects of their respective fields.

  • MSc in Info-bionics (in English)
    • The deep understanding of biological processes and measurements (e.g.: neural signals, communications, cell-cell interactions, data processing of living organisms) help us develop engineering solutions, instruments, devices, computational algorithms and models to augment or supplement a biological system. These also help in the measurement, control and operation of vital processes affecting living organisms and the quality of human life.
    • Application and research examples: prostheses, rehabilitation, bionic eyeglass, brain computer interfaces, neural electrodes, limb actuation, wheelchair navigation or minimally invasive surgery tools, multimodal medical imaging, bioinformatics, intelligent or sensory-actuating robotics, nanosensors.
    • Specializations:
      • Bionic Interfaces
      • Bio-nano Sensors and Imaging Devices
      • Systems Biology

  • MSc in Medical Biotechnology
    • The program allows students to gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge at the intersection of medicine and informatics. Medical biotechnologists work in the rapidly developing bio-medicinal field where their responsibilities include research, development, application and management. They are able to model and simulate biological systems on computers, are familiar with the current methods in molecular diagnostics and therapies, as well as design, create, manage and use databases in the field of medical biotechnology. Medical biotechnologists are able to handle and interpret large-scale data sets of medical relevance. As specialists trained in science, informatics and specific fields of medicine, they can be employed in basic research, or in the field of pharmaceutics, medical/molecular diagnostics or biotechnology.
    • Specializations:
      • Applied Bioinformatics
      • Molecular Biotechnology

  • MSc in Image Processing and Computer Vision (in English)
    • The Image Processing and Computer Vision (IPCV) is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD), in collaboration with the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) and the University of Bordeaux (France).
    • The IPCV Master's degree program trains specialists in a field of increasing importance. Processing images and videos is essential in domains such as medicine, surveillance, industrial control, remote sensing, e-commerce and automation.
    • The three partner universities with internationally recognized experience in these domains have pooled their complementary expertise and developed this two-year Master's program. The result is a high-quality, widely recognized, triple Master's degree that respects the 120 ECTS syllabus, and is well adapted to job market criteria.
