About the course

General description

Many of the innovative new products today come from the interdisciplinary field of info-bionics between computer science, electrical engineering and biotechnology (e.g.: sequencing tools, BCI, implants, sensory robotics). 

Our Info-bionics Engineering Masters program aims to develop your core competencies through subjects in modeling, neural sciences, electrophysiology, electronics and computer science. 

The deep understanding of biological processes and measurements (e.g.: neural signals, communications, cell-cell interactions, data processing of living organisms) help us develop engineering solutions, instruments, devices, computational algorithms and models to augment or supplement a biological system. These also help in the measurement, control and operation

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.

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.

Scholarships

Principles of Erasmus study exchange:
- The duration of usually one semester.
- Exchanges are based on bilateral cooperation agreements between PPCU and partner universities.
- The University selects the students taking part in the exchange.
- The hosting higher education institution will not charge tuition fees from exchange students.
- The studies completed abroad are officially recognized in the students’ degrees.

Principles of internships abroad:
- The uninterrupted duration of the internship is at minimum 2 months and at maximum 12 months.
- Suitable organisations for internships are enterprises and most private and public organisations including research institutes, higher education institutions, other educational institutes, foundations and non-governmental organisations.
- The student is responsible for finding a suitable internship, but the University may assist the student in finding the placement.
- The internship will be recognized in the student's degree if the internship is completed before graduation.

Eligibility

Full-time students of the University can, regardless of their nationality, participate in the Erasmus+ Programme's European mobility and complete a part of their studies or an internship in Europe.
There are two sub-types of the scholarship:
- Erasmus+ scholarship for studies (study exchange)
- Erasmus+ scholarship for internships
Students who travel abroad to study or for an internship are eligible for an Erasmus+ grant which covers some of the expenses of the exchange. A student may participate in a student exchange or in an internship abroad more than once during their studies.
