    The Faculty’s own scientific journal is called the ‘Pollack Periodica, an International Journal for Engineering and Information Sciences’ published by the Akadémiai Kiadó. Since 2006, nine volumes have been published containing more than 200 scientific articles. 60% of these articles were written on the subject of information technology, in fact, this is the only English language journal in Hungary that has information science in its title.
  • IT Services Hungary (ITSH)
    This company is not only one of the biggest ICT employers in Hungary but also the winner of the ‘Investor of the Year’ award in 2008. As is stated on their website: We invest in knowledge. We have found the skilled workforce that speaks languages in Hungary with whom we are able to offer high-level services for our clients in several European countries therefore we pay special attention to our employees.
    Our Faculty has had an ongoing cooperation with ITSH since 2012. In the first year alone four successful, Hungarian and German language IT courses were completed.
    SAP courses: SAP is undoubtedly the world’s leading and best known enterprise business application. Students are given a 200-lesson training on its general use and interface programming.
    JAVA courses: This 200 lesson course provides a comprehensive guide from the basics of Java programming to working with middleware technology. 

  • BIM  (Building Information Modelling)
    In 2014, with the cooperation of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology of Pécs, Budapest University of Technology and Economics andvarious industrial partners, the Hungarian BIM Association was founded with several lecturers of the faculty taking board positions.
    BIM has fundamentally changed the construction industry and it is expected that within a couple of years it is going to become an indispensable tool in architecture, engineering and construction. Because BIM systems can be linked to Primavera software, they are able to provide complex business solutions.
    We continuously provide tuition in BIM for graduate and post-graduate students. Students can also learn about BIM in a specialisation offered as part of our engineer training programme.
