  • Note that Erasmus students are normally taken for one of our Master's programs or PhD program. However, Erasmus students are allowed to choose from subjects of any of our Bachelor's programs, too.
  • BSc in Computer Science Engineering
    • The training gives a special insight into the fields where information technology is faced with new, unknown challenges such as medical sciences, human-machine contacts, parallel computation, and the world of nano- and micro-electronics.
    • Along with the classic questions of computer technology in our curriculum, several uniquely innovative features are introduced. In observing living organisms we would like to study their way of working and apply our findings to the world of microchips and sensors. The revolution of sensors, the growth of chip complexity, the ubiquitous kilo-processor chips, the facilitation of natural human communication and human language technology are areas where we are able to explore, even internationally, new territories.
  • BSc in Molecular Bionics
    • Molecular Bionics is a real novelty in Hungary. It is on the frontiers of biology, molecular physics and chemistry and computer technology and guides the way for rapidly developing fields of science, such as computer assisted pharmaceutical industry, medical biotechnology or nanobiotechnology.
    • The program has four disciplinary pillars:
      • molecular biology
      • electromagnetic waves in nano- and micron- scale
      • foundations of computing and electronicsneuro
      • biology
    • Students meet the lab-on-a-chip technology, computer-aided drug design, complex laboratory practice, physiology measurements, 2D and 3D imaging and processing, genome-chip technology etc. Upon finishing the BSc program the students can pursue their studies at the Info-bionics or Medical Biotechnology Master's programs to become pioneers of a new industry.
  • MSc in Computer Science Engineering
    • In this program the students can specialize in topics such as:
      • sensing computers and self-teaching robots,
      • tele-presence,
      • neuromorphic information technology,
      • medical image diagnostics,
      • bioinformatics,
      • human language technology,
      • micro- and nano-technology,
      • e-commerce,
      • mobile internet, telecommunication,
      • financial and bank informatics,
      • media communication,
      • software technology
    • In addition to the theoretical foundations of natural science, students study several programming languages and their applications in diverse environments. They also get acquainted with methods for designing complex software systems as well as the principles of artificial intelligence. Unlike other computer engineering programs, we put special emphasis on hardware-related issues as well.
    • Students are given the opportunity to take part in actual research and development projects of their respective fields.
  • MSc in Info-bionics
    • In the last decade we have been witnessing the appearance of a new discipline, info-bionics, which has achieved great results (gene-chips, cochlea implants for the hearing impaired, personalized medicines, neuromorphic sensing robots) within a short time, and is still developing at an amazing pace. It is the encounter of two state-of the-art technologies, informatics and biotechnology.
    • We have set two main directions in the curriculum. One of them comprises issues of engineering, electronics and informatics where the data processing of living organisms provide the models for the engineering solutions or computational algorithms as well as methods needed to understand life better (e.g.: bioinformatics). The other direction includes procedures, instruments and devices aiding the measurement, control and operation of vital processes, which affect living organisms and the quality of human life. This program is especially important in the context of prostheses and rehabilitation. Examples included are bionic eyeglasses, leg actuation, wheelchair navigation or devices that facilitate invasive operations with only minor intervention.
  • MSc in Medical Biotechnology
    • Medical biotechnologists work in the bio-medicinal field where their responsibilities include research, development, application and management tasks. They are capable of modeling and simulating biological systems on computers, applying the methods and instruments of computational biology and biochemistry, as well as designing, creating, managing and applying databases in the field of medical biotechnology.
    • Specializations:
      • medicine molecule design and drug development
      • biological signal processing
      • bioinformatics
  • Research
    • Students can take active part in research during their studies. They can work individually or in groups within the framework of the Research Students' Groups on a chosen topic with the assistance of a researcher or professor, and may later join one of the research projects of the Jedlik Laboratories, a Research Center at the Faculty.
    • 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.
