The faculty enjoys the support of renowned Hungarian and international experts, who are involved in educational and research programmes, the organisation of conferences, and joint tenders. They provide assistance in finding partner companies and organizations which provide work placement opportunities to our students, as well as expert consultation when writing their master thesis. In addition, they also take part in joint projects and provide assistance to faculty members when they are working towards a scientific degree, publishing research papers or setting up faculty exchange programmes.

The Hungarian Government, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Hungarian Academy of Arts regularly offer scholarships and grants to those working in education and research. Teachers from our faculty regularly win such scholarships and numerous science papers are published and research projects are completed as a direct outcome of these scholarships.
