BME's new Physicist-Engineer programme will address the exciting challenges of the 21st century with a focus on nano- and quantum technologies, data science, sustainability and energetics,
- highlighted Dr Tibor Czigány, Rector of BME.
In Hungary, research and development (R&D) are predominantly carried out by the corporate sector, and influenced by global market needs. In response to this trend, BME is launching a Physicist-Engineer BSc degree programme in September 2023. The Hungarian university will train professionals with both engineering and scientific expertise to meet real market needs and provide creative responses to scientific and technological challenges.
During the development of the programme, the current market was a leading perspective provided by successful Hungarian and global industry players. In addition, the Physicist-Engineer programme will provide fast and efficient job entry at corporates like Bosch, Semilab, 77 Elektronika, Femtonics, Furukawa Electric, Magnetec and Paks II.
There is a high need for the system-oriented thinking of physicists at Bosch. Having a deep understanding of our environment via learning physics is a good starting point for a successful career. There are several fields where physicist-engineers are welcome, like electromagnetic interference (EMC), artificial intelligence (AI), data science, reliability of products, materials science and optics.
