Óbuda (Old Buda) University is located in Budapest, Hungary. Our engineering and applied science departments and programs are among the nation’s oldest with 130 years of rich tradition.
The history of our school dates back to 1879, as the Public Secondary Industrial School of Budapest later operated under the name Hungarian Royal Public Higher Industrial School from 1898. The legendary Higher Industrial School – the Tech, as it became known internationally – set an example to successors by creating concordance between high-standard theoretical and practical training. Óbuda University is the legal successor of Budapest Tech. The most famous student was József Galamb, the chief designer of the Ford Motor company who devised many of the parts of the famous Ford Model T.
Our Engineering and Applied Science based departments are an open and welcoming community for all students, faculty, researchers and administrative staff. We are fortunate to attract students and faculty from diverse backgrounds, from across the country, and from around the world. It is a great benefit to be able to gather engineers and scientists of so many different perspectives and talents – all with a commitment to learning, a focus on pushing the frontiers of knowledge and discovery, and with a passion for translating our work to impact humanity.
Obuda University’s primary objective is to enhance leading-edge international research and higher education opportunities for current Hungarian and International students (BSc, MSc and PhD). We offer our students a high quality practice and science based education to become strong research and technical management engineers.
