The physics programmes offered by the Faculty of Natural Sciences provide complex scientific knowledge and strong problem-solving skills. These are necessary for a successful career in reseach, but can also be efficiently applied in many other areas, where modelling complex systems and solving difficult problems is required. Due to the flexible structure of the training, you can decide during your studies whether you focus on the fundamental aspects of physics, or you engage with more applied subjects related to technologies and engineering. Besides the professional benefits offered by the programmes, the city of Budapest provides a lively and youthful atmosphere, with many opportunities for leisure; see Budapest’s wikitravel page, for example.
BSc in Physics: The BSc in Physics Programme, a traditional curriculum, leads to a degree in six semesters. The facilities and scientific-tutorial background of the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Nuclear Techniques offer unique opportunities in areas like low-temperature physics, acousto-optics, holography, nuclear techniques or medical physics. A further advantage of our Physics BSc Program is the engineering background provided by BME. From the third semester, specialised courses can be chosen from various fields of theoretical, experimental and applied physics.
MSc in Physics: The four-semester MSc in Physics programme provides comprehensive knowledge, built upon strong theoretical and experimental bases on a broad area of physics, supported by the facilities and scientific-tutorial background of the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Nuclear Techniques. Students can select various courses related to solid state physics, quantum physics and informatics, nanotechnology and materials science, optics and photonics, nuclear physics, as well as to medical physics.
PhD in Physics: The post-graduate PhD in Physics Programme is available in all domains offered in the Physics MSc Programme, such as in solid state physics, quantum physics and informatics, nanotechnology and materials science, optics and photonics, nuclear physics, as well as in medical physics.
