Electrical Engineering, BSc

Objectives and Perspectives

The aim of the Electrical Engineering BSc program is to provide a comprehensive education that prepares our students for a successful engineering practice and advanced studies. Students learn about the basic physical laws governing our environment, materials science and technology at macro- micro- and nanometer scales, as well as mathematics and informatics. They acquire practical knowledge in computer engineering and electronic technology, microelectronics and energy systems, optical materials and automation. Apart from basic and applied knowledge, students will be trained in e-commerce, planning, solving and managing problems efficiently. A solid basic education in the Electrical Engineering BSc program provides a foundation for a successful career in industry and prepares students for further studies in engineering and informatics.

Duration of studies: 7 semesters
Number of teaching (contact) hours: 2,910
Number of required ECTS credits: 210

Major Subjects

During the first year the BSc program offers introductory and advanced courses of Mathematics, Physics, Informatics, Materials Science, Chemistry that provides a basis for the next step in Advanced Professional Module, where the accent is on the Electronics, Programming, Digital Technics, Automotion, Electricity and Magnetism, Measuring Technology and Energetics. Optional Professional Subjects are selected according to the two specializations (Infotechnology and Automotion) which start in the last three semesters: Photonics, Nanotechnology and Nanoelectronics, Digital Signal Processing, Electric Drives, Sensors, PLC, Power Electronics. The courses of Environmental Studies, Economics and Management, Civil Law and Intellectual Properties support the development of management skills. In the last three semesters students work in elective laboratories, have a four-week training at factories and make their thesis research, based on different research programs and co-operation with industrial partners.

various engineering MSc programs (in development)


The Institute of Physics in Debrecen has about 40 staff members. Half of them are professors and associate professors with fluent English, with extensive educational and research experience. The Institute is well equipped with physics, electronic and computer laboratories. We emphasize quality in education and research by creating platforms for learning and through targeted research excellence, for example in the nanotechnology field. We have industry partners who participate in research and educational programs, providing much needed input and resources with positive impact on student training and strengthening research relationship. Advanced students also have access to the resources of the nearby Institute of Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences with laboratories and an excellent research library.
