Program Description

Description of the Program

The basic courses include Logics, Computer science, Linear algebra, Number theory, Calculus, Geometry, Probability theory and statistics, and Game theory. Advanced courses include Mathematical programming and Operations research, Group theory, Computer algebra, Numerical methods, and applied computer science. The courses usually constitute of two parts: a lecture and a problem-solving seminar, each worth 2 or 3 credits, depending on the nature of the topic. In addition to the 120 credits which have to be collected from the courses, 60 credits for the preparation of the thesis completes the 180 credits required for finishing the course.

The creation of the University of Pécs was first initiated by King Louis the Great in 1367. Today, the University of Pécs is one of the most prestigious institutions in the country, where there are ten faculties, which cover the full spectrum of higher education to provide high quality, comprehensive training. In addition to the education and research activities, medical treatment is a crucial activity of ours; the Clinical Centre takes care of not only of the region’s outpatients and in-patients, but in many areas has national-level duties, too.
