PPKE ITK is a unique faculty in Central Europe, where electronic and computer engineering is combined with molecular and neural biology and medicine. As many innovative new products come from these interdisciplinary fields, we try to find and understand techniques and algorithms developed in biological systems, and come up with ways to implement them in engineering environments.
Our Faculty fosters innovation, research, and exciting co-operation experiences at all levels of education, from Bachelor’s to Doctoral degree. Our courses reflect our interdisciplinary approach, and are taught by academics with leading expertise in the relevant area. With their deep academic attainments, rich teaching experience, professional dedication, attention to and care for the students, and excellent command of English as a medium of instruction, our teachers fit perfectly with the internationalized teaching and learning environments of the Faculty.
Students have access to a range of cutting-edge facilities and resources, getting the tools needed to reach their full potential. Teachers, administrative staff, laboratories, and fellow students offer collaborative support to help international students safely and comfortably settle into life in Hungary. A range of counselling services and support facilities are also available, thus helping international students to enjoy their study abroad experience at PPKE ITK.
Internationalization is one of the key strategic goals of the Faculty. Whereas our BSc programs are offered in Hungarian, all MSc and PhD programs are run in English. With about 700 students, the size of the Faculty further emphasizes its human-centeredness.
Our research areas include artificial intelligence, bio-inspired computing, cognitive science, language technology, human-computer interaction and many more.
Our objective is to provide multidisciplinary education in human-centered information technology, taking the rapidly changing advanced technologies into consideration. Furthermore, we aim at forming our students into becoming creative experts capable of handling various problems in all areas of modern life and scientific research with the help of their deep and comprehensive academic knowledge, classic education and modern, ethical management skills.
