Student Profile(s)

Péter Marosán

I originally chose to attend Image Processing and Computer Vision (IPCV) program because I have found it captivating and challenging to interpret hidden visual information and teach machines to see like humans.
IPCV gave a comprehensive and effective toolset in the field and taught that how to use it. The Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics (FITB) was an ideal environment to study there, because it is a friendly and familiar faculty. I also found it a huge advantage that we had the same, motivated and talented study group during the three semesters in Budapest, Madrid and Bordeaux. Being part of such a group was advantageous, both professionally and personally.
During the program I have got familiar with the mathematical background of the field, object detection & classification, video surveillance, biomedical imaging and image processing, machine learning and deep learning techniques for instance.
After graduation I got a fascinating job at a Smart City company, where my main topic was automated object tracking. Currently I am working for a small medical company where I design automated algorithms for skin lesion detection and classification. In the same time, I am working on my PhD which has the very same topic. During my work I can lean on the knowledge I have gained during my masters.
It is always a big challenge, moving to a foreign country so it was also shocking for the first time to move to Madrid or Bordeaux. Luckily the IPCV program organizers, the partner universities and the members of the study group helped a lot to get through the teething problems. The universities organized team-building programs, offered language schools and basically were there for us every time when we had any questions.
The stipend was generous, and I did not have financial problems during the program inspite of life in Spain and France is more expensive than in Hungary. Towards the cost of living, we could also travel and visit many interesting show-places of the countries.

Julio Alberto Loeira Barba

I was searching for a scholarship to study abroad. Between my option was also Netherlands and Belgium, but I took the decision to come to Hungary because of the Master program I found at Pázmány. After graduating as an electronic engineer, I was looking for something really new and challenging, I review the program for Info-Bionics and felt it was the best option.
I could not find a lot information about the faculty, so I was a little bit afraid about how big was the university, if the labs had enough equipment, or what researches were making. When I arrived at the university my eyes opened in all directions. Even if I had really high expectations from the university, these would be surpassed. The labs were amazing, the research they have are really interensing, and all the professors are so kind and super intelligent. I love studying at Pázmány. Before coming I was looking for a challenge, and I found it. The best thing is that you can push yourself as hard as you want, getting a normal grade is challeging enough, but if you want to learn more, you can go as deep as you want.
Hungary has been an amizing discovery. I asked some friends before coming if they had been here, but I never expected it to be such a beautiful country. I love the life of the city, at day, at night it is always alive. I love classical music, and living in Budapest and having all these concerts every week is amazing. The most suprising things are the landscapes, until now I have only been to a few places in Hungary, but recently I went to Tihany, and I still do not have the correct words to tell how beautiful it is.
Hungary is an international country, I mean, I have meet a lot of people from so many different parts of the world with different cultures and stories. This will make you see the world in a relly different way. If someone ask me if it was a tough decision to study abroad, I would say … Yes, it was the toughest and best decision I have made in my life, and I know I would never regret to study abroad.

Rene Salmingo

Indeed, Hungary has greatly contributed to nurturing students’ life experiences. Studying Master of Science in Info-Bionics Engineering with a specialization in Bionic interfaces, a joint Master's programme by Pázmány Péter Catholic University and Semmelweis University has been instrumental in the integration of advanced computing and bioengineering technologies. As a leading biomedical higher education institution, a center of research excellence, and a healthcare provider in Hungary and Central Europe for over 250 years, and Times Higher Education World University Ranking 2022 (251 – 300th). I was able to bridge the gap between neuroscience, information technology, and the electronics engineering research fields. As an Electronics Engineer by profession in the Philippines, the MSc programme in the Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics was able to build skills, a practical learning experience ecosystem, and significant knowledge in the challenging 21st-century workforce. Studying in Europe teaches you how to conduct research independently and access the richness of European culture. Further, with its top-quality education, it is undeniably considered as one of the top 10 countries with several Nobel Prizes in Science."

Kerollos Eskander

I had a great chance and experience to do my master’s degree in Budapest, the capital of Hungary and one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe, at Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Medical Biotechnology.

Studying in Hungary is considered a worthy investment, living and educational costs are relatively lower than in Western Europe and at the end of the day, your degree is recognized all over Europe. There’s also a chance to apply for scholarships, I myself did my master’s degree within the framework of the Scholarship for Christian Young People and don’t forget to enjoy Hungarian food, nature, and history :D .

The curriculum of Medical Biotechnology MSc covers a broad range of topics that are crucial in both research and industry. It gives a solid background about practical and computational techniques that are used in the state-of-art field of biotechnology. Professors at Pázmány University are quite professional and friendly towards their students. I encourage those who are interested in a career in Medical Biotechnology to take this master’s course. It is also worth mentioning that Budapest is amazing during Christmas time. Wish you all the
best :D
