Szechenyi Istvan University

4.1 out of 5 (32 ratings / 19 reviews) Győr, Hungary
Széchenyi István 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.



Győr has always been an important city of education. The Jesuit Academy founded in 1718 offered theological, philosophical and juridical training, and from 1745 secular students could also study at the institution. The Royal Academy of Gyõr began its work in 1776. Giants of literature and jurisprudence pursued studies here such as Ferenc Deák, László Csányi (he was the Minister of Transport and Labour in 1848 after István Széchenyi) and Kálmán Mikszáth. 


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. Széchenyi István 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 the 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.
