In 2000, when we had the opportunity to become an independent higher educational institution, we had a definite notion of how to become the intellectual innovation centre of Dunaújváros and the region. We alleged the enlargement of our training and research areas into this service; we have been building a European Campus. For today we can claim that we are prepared for the challenge - with the motorway M6 and the bridge built near Dunaújváros named about the former name of the settlement, - to build the latest logistic centre of Hungary.
With our conscious educational and infrastructural developments we achieved that the number of students has been ten folded in the last fifteen years, and now we have about 3500 students. From 2006 we offer eight BSc/BA undergraduate programmes and twelve higher-level vocational training courses. From 2007 our first Master course, the Teacher of Engineering MA programme is also available. From the same time, international students also study at our institution, we teach them Engineering Business Management BSc, Computer Engineering BSc, Material Science Engineer BSc, Mechanical Engineer BSc Communication and Media BA and Business Administration BA and Teacher of Engineering MA in the English language.
In the last twelve years, due to the nearly 7 billion developments, we have established a campus: with our downtown main building and our neighbouring student hostels our establishments and our rented student hostels create a real circle ring. As a Regional University Knowledge Centre we are building a student-friendly, European campus in order to like living here, stay here, to be what learn and why, to be all at our service what a European citizen makes happy today.
Graduation-ceremony With our current and prospective partners just as the future graduates our common interest is to provide a training which corresponds to their needs, and we collaborate to serve one another's favour in the fields of education and research development. Our purpose is also to continuously train ourselves going before the challenges and to find our speculations and success by our intellectual constructive work.
Our supporter, the Ministry of Education and Culture recognized the importance of our regional endeavours, put its faith in it, and thanks to the taxpayers and our partners, today in our modern establishments there are excellent range of tools and internship opportunities also support the students' academic and practical preparation who study on engineering, informatics, teaching, economic and social science areas.
In our student hostels of the high standard today we can provide accommodation for all of the freshmen requiring accommodation. The units are equipped with own bathrooms also give an opportunity to reach the inner college informatics network, have an Internet access and watch cable television as well. The fridges in the rooms, the very well equipped kitchens on the floors and the laundry rooms provide full comfort for the students. Our student hostel is the member of the International Youth Hostel Association as well.
