Locations

Széchenyi István University (SZE) is located in Győr, in North-West Hungary, at an equal distance from Budapest, capital of Hungary, and Vienna, capital of Austria. The city is at the meeting point of three rivers, including the world-famous Danube. As the sixth largest city in Hungary, Győr is both modern with a dynamic industrial base producing an impressive one tenth of the country’s exports, and historic with the newly restored Baroque downtown of Győr, which is considered to be a cultural jewel. The city is home to the Audi Hungaria Motor Company. Established in 1993, the Audi plant now ranks as one of the largest automotive plants in the world, developing and manufacturing engines for the parent company AUDI AG and other companies of the Volkswagen Group.

As evidence of the university’s strong commitment to internationalization, since September 2019, 24 English-language programs at all academic levels are offered. The Bachelor level international programs include Vehicle Engineering, Logistics Engineering, Civil Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Food Engineering, Business Administration & Management and a BA in International Relations.

At the Master’s level, there are programs in Vehicle Engineering, Civil Engineering, Architecture, Supply Chain Management and Computer Science Engineering, Marketing, International Economics & Business and a choice of master’s degrees in Music Performance.

Three of the four Doctoral Schools are also offered in English: Doctoral Program in Plant, Animal and Food Sciences, Doctoral Program in Civil Engineering Transportation & Vehicle Engineering and Informatics Sciences and a Business and Management Sciences Doctoral Program. In addition to the full degree programs, two other new international postgraduate programs will be launched in the field of Law and Governance, run by the School of Law and Political Sciences.

In the area of university-industry collaboration, Audi Hungaria and the university are cooperating on a unique project. Starting in 2015, they jointly founded the “Audi Hungaria School of Automotive Engineering” which now boasts six professorships: internal combustion engines, automotive manufacturing technology, complete vehicle development, material science and technology, environmental engineering, logistics and shipping. The company’s specialist involvement with the university is demonstrated by the large extent of direct participation of Audi Hungaria experts in lectures and research.
