Studies at the Faculty

  • Studying within the framework of the Erasmus program
    • Our professors have a high-level English language competence. They are able to provide personalised assistance to foreign students spending a few months at our Faculty. Incoming students have the opportunity to choose courses in English or Hungarian, participate in research tasks (project work) or opt for supervised individual study.
    • Incoming students should contact one of the professors and/or the Erasmus coordinator at their home university, to cooperate in scheduling their Erasmus activity at our university.
    • It is also possible to carry out research work at the Faculty within the framework of Erasmus work practice. The work plan should be discussed with one of the professors of our Faculty prior to arrival. A project agreement / work schedule signed by one of the faculty professors and the applicant is necessary.
    • The language of tuition at our Faculty is basically Hungarian. Yet, a lot of courses are offered in English as well (see the list below). Incoming students have the opportunity to opt for supervised independent study (e.g. diploma work) or come to our Faculty with a research topic, provided they arrange it beforehand with the professor of the given subject. Incoming students are strongly advised to contact a professor at their home university who is familiar with the main research areas and specialisations of our Faculty. On basis of the suggestions of the academic advisor/professor, Erasmus students can schedule their activity at our university. Students design the rough outline of their planned studies (or choose from the special fields of study) and send it to our international office. On basis of the students' main field of interest and work schedule, we will be able to suggest subjects to be taken at our university.
    • Courses marked English as the primary language can always be chosen freely by Erasmus students (these courses run in English anyway). Courses marked as being held primarily in Hungarian should be consulted with the Erasmus coordinator during the application period. If an Erasmus student is interested in taking a specific course, teachers are in most cases prepared to hold the classes in English, and/or provide the student with English course material, consulting the student individually, in order to be able to prepare to the exam successfully.
  • Fields of study at the Faculty
    • Our Faculty is proud to have a great number of Erasmus partner universities throughout Europe. In order to promote student mobility, Pázmány Péter Catholic University applies the European Credit Transfer System, which enables students to validate the offered courses in their home universities after their academic semester/year in Budapest.
  • Special fields of interest include:
    • Bioinformatics
    • E-commerce
    • Info-bionics
    • Info-communication
    • Language technology
    • Medical image diagnosis
    • Microelectronics
    • Micro-and nanotechnology
    • Neuromorphic information technology
    • Robotics
    • Sensing computers
    • Software technology
    • Tele-presence and navigation
  • It is strongly recommended that students wishing to study at our Faculty indicate their main filed of interest in their Application Form, so that we may give a "tailor-made" course offer.
  • Staying in Budapest also provides an excellent opportunity to get an insight on the Central and East-European view, as well as some local issues. Besides that, students also have various possibilities to get familiar with the Hungarian language.
  • For each course successfully completed, students obtain credits. ECTS documents are provided by the university towards the end of the stay.
  • Erasmus students arriving to our Faculty can put together their individual timetables by choosing freely from the subjects offered.
  • Applicants wishing to study at our Faculty within the framework of Erasmus mobility should fill in the application form of our Faculty, as well as the Transcript of records.
  • Jedlik Laboratories
    • The Jedlik Laboratories, named after the famous Hungarian Benedictine physicist Ányos Jedlik, operates within the Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics. It is a research, education and technology centre, where we combine the advantages of a multidisciplinary approach in a few areas that are currently emerging with experimental work. Researchers who lecture at our faculty conduct their research with the contribution of PhD and postgraduate students. The Laboratories have been created with the active participation of five research institutes of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and some major and start-up companies, in order to establish a close cooperation between universities, research institutes of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and industrial companies.
