Why should I study here?

The Szechenyi Istvan University is situated in two cities (Győr and Mosonmagyarovar) in the center of Central Europe’s golden triangle: halfway between the capitol of Hungary, Austria and Slovakia, along the highway E75 and at the river Danube. Due to its ideal location the city Győr became a very important automotive center. Here can be found the largest engine factory of the world the Audi Hungaria Motor Kft. and hundreds of automotive suppliers. The University provides education as well as pursuing research work in the fields of engineering – especially for the automotive industry. IT, architecture pedagogy, economics, international relations, law and administration, social work, medicine and health, musical arts, agriculture and teacher training. Szechenyi Istvan University's quality is reflected not only in the national marketplace but also at the international level, as many multinational companies hire our graduates and work with our university (e.g. Audi). Its activities encompass training at all levels, from the vocational courses through the BSc and MSc, to doctoral training and further training. The university offers unique training and research in the region, which serves primarily the engineering focused production activities, building on the North-Transdanubian economy and its social and institutional environment. Its educational activities provide students with high-level, valuable, professional, and practical education, in addition to the ability and willingness to adapt to any situation. Szechenyi Istvan University – 45 years of tradition and experience in supporting Hungary´s leading industrial area with a strong focus for vehicle engineering, transportation and telecommunication. In the meantime our university became the primary server of the regional economy and public services sector, supplier of human resources and training needs in the North-Transdanubian region.
