Programme structure

Students will obtain 210 credits. For graduation – in addtion to succesfully finishing all compulsory and elective courses – including at least 4 semesters of PE – they need to fulfill a traineeship period in relevant fields with companies offered by the faculty or at organisations chosen by the student, write and defend a thesis and succesfully pass the final exam.

Teaching at the university is conducted in three different forms: lectures, seminars, and laboratory practice. Attendance at seminars and labs is strictly regulated by university rules; absence over 30% of classes entail a ban from examinations. There are two ways of assessment. A practical mark is awarded at the end of predominantly practical courses, and are solely based on a student’s term-time progress. An examination is required at theoretical courses, which can be taken in the exam period.

In Hungary, a 5-point grading system is used. 1 is the only failing grade. There are only whole numbers in grading.
5 (excellent) – the student possesses all relevant knowledge and is able to utilise itt o solve problems realted tot he topics of the course
4 (good) – the student has a good understanding about the topics of the course and is able to identify problems related tot he field
3 (satisfactory) – the student has a basic understanding of the topics of the course and is able to assist specialists working in the field
2 (sufficient) – the student is aware of the topics of the course and has a basic understanding of them
1 (insufficient) – the student has to retake the course, since his/her knoledge is insufficient

Evaluation methods beyond the scope of the university regulations described above are at the lecturer’s discretion. The list is long, but the most common ones are
● mid-term and end-of-term written tests,
● project works,
● reports,
● mini-lectures,
● homeworks,
● oral presentations, etc.,
or any combination of them. There are no fixed percentage categories for different grades, but most commonly 50% is required for a pass. Normally, one retake is offered for a missed assignment. Term-time requirements with course syllabi, as well as dates and deadlines are listed in a document by the lecturer, and made public on the faculty website before the start of the semester.

The evaluation of progress is checked in the following ways:
a) during the semester with written or oral presentation, written test, or assessing home assignment
(plan, measurement minutes etc.), with practical mark or signature,
b) passing a pre-examination during the semester,
c) passing an exam or a comprehensive exam in the exam period and
d) with final examination.
Doing profession practice outside the institution is a criterion of the training. The duration of the internship is 12 weeks.
