Program Description

The objective is to train Computer Scientists with a professional knowledge-based on solid theoretical background knowledge. They have the skills to take part in software development, in developing information systems and system management in various areas. Computer Scientists often acts as mediators between the customers of information systems and the producers. In this way, the job of a Computer Scientist synthesizes the constructive activity of engineers with the general problem-solving attitude of mathematicians while participating in teams of large-scale projects.

The program provides students with a broad education in Computer Science and Software Engineering in combination with specialized work in computer and information processing techniques, programming languages, data structures, information retrieval, operating systems, compiler design, etc. Students learn the theory as well as the methodologies and techniques in the development and implementation of computer systems. The more practical programming courses are aided by several courses in pure and applied mathematics and theoretical computer science courses throughout the curriculum.

Strength of program

The high standard of training is guaranteed by highly qualified academic staff. Teaching is supported by modern infrastructure and well-equipped computer labs (artificial intelligence, databases, and robotics). The library of the Faculty contains several thousand volumes. The students of higher years and Ph.D. students help the first year students in a mentor system to overcome their first challenges at the university.

In addition to the high level of theoretical training, the Faculty's relationship with the business community, the joint research, and development projects offer up-to-date practical knowledge and experience to the students. The Faculty has concluded bilateral agreements with numerous universities in the world, which allows students to study one or two semesters or participate in research projects at a partner institution.

Extracurricular undergraduate research activities of the students are supported and supervised by leading scientists of the Faculty. These students present their findings at a conference organized by the Faculty every year.

Workshops are also organized with international partners.

Career opportunities

Computer Scientists are welcome in every sector of informatics. Jobs are offered by large international computer companies, outstanding Hungarian firms, banks, large enterprises, state institutions, software development companies, research institutes and universities where they may be engaged in the preparation of integrated data processing systems, electronic trade transactions and electronic money transfers, solving telecommunication problems (networks, programming mobile phones), performing image recognition, computer-aided design, image processing or preparing multimedia applications.
