Overview

Program description:

Many of the innovative new products today come from the interdisciplinary field of info-bionics combining computer science, electrical engineering and biotechnology (e.g.: sequencing tools, BCI, implants, sensory robotics).

Our Info-Bionics Engineering Master’s Program aims to develop core competencies through subjects in modeling, neural sciences, electrophysiology, electronics and computer science.

The deep understanding of biological processes and measurements (e.g.: neural signals, communications, cell-cell interactions, data processing of living organisms) help us develop engineering solutions, instruments, devices, computational algorithms and models to augment or supplement a biological system. These also help in the measurement, control and operation of vital processes affecting living organisms and the quality of human life.

Application and research examples: prostheses, rehabilitation, bionic eyeglass, brain computer interfaces, neural electrodes, limb actuation, wheelchair navigation or minimally invasive surgery tools, multimodal medical imaging, bioinformatics, intelligent or sensory-actuating robotics, nanosensors.

We welcome students to join us if they have previous training in molecular biology, electrical engineering, image processing or neuroscience.

Entry requirements:
BSc degree in Molecular Bionics, Biomedicine, Electrical Engineering, Engineer Informatics, Chemical Engineering, Biology or Chemistry etc.
In case of other BSc degrees, the Credit Transfer Committee reserves the right to make a decision about the application.

The diploma rate must be over 75%.

One of the following English language certificates: IELTS with total score of 6.0 / TOEFL with score of 90.
Exemption: Bachelor degree obtained in a full English language program.

Entrance exam:
YES
Subjects of the entrance examination (written and oral):
- Chemistry
- Biology
- Physics and Electronics
- Computer Science


Type of entrance exam:
Online test AND online interview (Skype / MS Teams)

Entrance exam location:
On-line

Entrance exam description:

After an evaluation of preliminary studies, applicants with appropriate qualifications take a written electronic test covering topics in Biology, Physics, Electronics, Chemistry and Computer Science.
If the applicant obtains enough score in the online test he/she will be invited to attend a personal interview, primarily conducted via Skype. The International Relations Office notify the student in advance about the planned themes of the oral exam.The top applicants are interviewed online where the BSc Thesis work, professional commitment, language proficiency and communication skills are examined. The Evaluation Committee sets the final score and admission result based upon the quality of the application material, the online test and the personal interview.

Compulsory preparatory semester:
YES.

Based on the performance at the entrance exam, the applicant may be obliged to attend a Preparatory Semester in order to be admitted to the Info-Bionics Engineering program. The Preparatory Semester is always organized in the fall semester. Thus, the actual commencement of the Master’s programs is February. The goal of the preparatory semester is to level students for their Master’s program in Budapest, helping to ensure that they can complete their studies successfully. The preparatory semester helps students to recap, develop and upgrade the Bachelor-level skills needed to succeed in their Master’s program.
The Preparatory Semester consists of four three-week-long modules, each module comprising three or four subjects. The courses follow an intensive schedule, and are concluded by a compulsory exam.

After successfully completing the Preparatory Semester, the student may complete the 4 semesters of Master’s program.

Specialisation year available:
No. Specializations are built into the Curriculum of the Study Programme.

Minimum number of scholarship holders:
1

Maximum number of scholarship holders:
15
