Dean’s message

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics (VIK) of Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) carries on the traditions of the above 230 year old University. The proof thereof is the recognition of our degrees all around the world as well as the involvement and appreciation of our professors and researchers in the international scientific scene and organisations.

Almost all multinational electronics and IT corporations well-known in Asia have established R&D laboratories and centres attached to various departments of the faculty – Ericsson, Morgan Stanley, Nokia, Siemens, Samsung, Huawei, HP, IBM, just to name a few – where students can get hands-on information on the expectations of the partner companies.

The 2001 January issue of Nature published an article with the title "The 20th century was created in Budapest".

It shows that Budapest irrevocably became part of history that determined the advancement of natural sciences in the last century. Many of the illustrious scientists either studied or taught at the University.

This constitutes such a responsibility for current education that – inter alia – resulted in a prominent place in the Webometrics ranking of universities.

We are proud to be one of the few university faculties in the world whose students can construct a small satellite for educational purposes, getting ready to meet the challenges of the new industry of the future: space technology. SMOG-P is the world's first 5 cubic cm-sized, functional space device while ATL-1, the first Hungarian private satellite, which was created with intellectual support from the university, is also transmitting signals.

Ancient Romans had a pertinent term “genius loci", meaning the spirit of the place.

Join us to create the 21st century here, in the middle of Europe, Hungary, Budapest, a liveable and safe city with a colourful multicultural spirit, spicy dishes and Asian roots still retained in music providing an academic student experience and community that endure and are remembered no matter the graduates of the University pursue their career in the world.

I hope to see you as a student of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Control Engineering and Information Technology, Biomedical Engineering, that of business informatics or attending one of our PhD programmes.
