Agricultural Engineering

Higher education in the field of agricultural sciences has more than 50 years of tradition in Nyíregyháza, Hungary. Agriculture plays an important role in the Hungarian economy since it is unique in the world that more than 50 percent of the country’s territory is suitable for agricultural cultivation. The main aims of the Agricultural Engineer BSc study at the University of Nyíregyháza are as follows:

  • to train agricultural engineers who possess agricultural, technical and economic knowledge based on knowledge of natural sciences,
  • to train agricultural engineers who possess knowledge of the European Union,
  • to train agricultural engineers who possess the appropriate level of practical knowledge to directly manage agricultural production,
  • to train agricultural engineers who are able to modify the technological processes used in a particular agricultural sector, as well as to introduce new technologies,
  • to train agricultural engineers who can recognize their role in the food chain security.

Agricultural engineers who seek and favour these solutions in their work and that support the health of society, individuals as well as the protection of the environment are ready to pursue their studies in Master's Degree (MSc).


Computer Science

We recommend our courses, especially to those students who are majoring in Software Engineering or in a similar field at our university. Nowadays there is a short supply of professionals with programming skills in the labour market, therefore students of software engineering at the University of Nyíregyháza are often able to find a job even during their training. The university, which has 7 computer workrooms and an excellent IT infrastructure, takes care of its students so as to let them acquire state-of-the-art professional knowledge during their scholastic years. The courses recommended for Erasmus students are an integral part of the aforementioned training. The department primarily trains software development specialists, and the students acquire theoretical, methodical and technological expertise in that field.

Economic Science

Our institution has played an active role in teaching Economic Science in Hungary’s higher education for the last 22 years. We carry on this tradition by offering a high quality student-centred education and a continuous development in Economic Science. Our primary goal is to train highly qualified specialists in Economic Science and Tourism with up-to-date professional knowledge. Our students meet the requirements who meet the requirements of the national and international labour markets in every walk of life while confirming our educational and research activities with their success.

The structure and the syllabus of the courses, which are offered in Erasmus training, reflect the requirements dictated by academic development and free markets: they comply with the trends in today’s world and in Economic Science. The lecturers of our department disseminate the knowledge of economics, enterprise economy, management, logistics, and informationtechnology based on the foundations of modern economic science to students who are interested in preparing for and establishing their future managerial tasks.

In our job, we are endeavouring to take the challenges of the 21st century into consideration and harmonize them with the current professional assumptions.

Knowledge. Success. Experience. These are the things waiting for you if you start building your professional career in Nyíregyháza with us.
