Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Informatics
Educational program for undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students in Computer Science at ELTE
The Institute of Informatics offers programs leading to three degrees:
Computer Science at undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate level. These programs are constantly being updated in order to reflect current developments in the field. All programs emphasize a combination of theory and practice.
Students are prepared for tackling problems requiring profound knowledge of mathematics with the aid of computers.
The undergraduate program provides students with a broad education in Computer Science in combination with specialized work in computer and information processing techniques, programming languages, data structures, information retrieval, operating systems, compiler design, etc. Students learn the theory as well as the methodologies and techniques in the development and implementation of computer systems.
Having finished the program students may seek employment at computer centers, industry, computer manufacturers, or any organization that applies computers for research or production purposes. They will be also well prepared to pursue studies for a graduate degree in computer science.
The graduate program is an advanced course for a degree intended to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to hold professional posts oriented toward the development and design of computer systems. Students with this degree will be able to carry out research work in computer science, to direct the work in computer centers.
The postgraduate program is a continuation of studies giving the opportunity to graduate students to specialize in matters of current interest in this field of research which is fast developing.
Duration of programs:
Undergraduate degree (B. Sc.): 6 semesters
Graduate degree (M. Sc.): 4 semesters (after the undergraduate degree)
Specialized postgraduate studies (Ph. D.): 4 semesters (after the graduate degree)
