59Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics The Faculty of Electrical Engineering founded in 1949 has been renowned for excellence in research and education throughout the years of changes in the scope of engineering. Over this period, the faculty has earned a wide-spread international reputation for its high academic standards and scientific achievements. Spearheading the movement to establish a modern education system, it has offered a comprehensive English curriculum since 1992.Nearly at the same time, the name of the faculty was changed to Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics in order to give recognition to the growing importance of computer science. The education programs in English include a 3.5-year B.Sc., a 2-year M.Sc. and a 3-year Ph.D. program in the fields of electrical and software engineering.This Bulletin describes the curricula and the subjects being available for the 2012/2013 academic year, regarding the BSc, MSc and PhD programmes, respectively.
60The undergraduate B.Sc. programme aims at providing a comprehensive knowledge with sound theoretical foundations in two areas:Electrical Engineering including more specific studies in electronics, computer engineering and power engineering;Software Engineering dedicated to the major domains of computer science.The major specializations in Electrical Engineering are computer networks, control and robotics and power engineering. Studies in Software Engineering include specialization in infocommunication and software technology.Each specialization contains three courses focusing on the field of interest followed by a laboratory course and a project laboratory. In order to pursue studies in a given specialization the number of students must exceed a certain threshold, otherwise the interested students are kindly directed to another specialization.
61(1) Electrical Engineering, offering specializations in The M.Sc. programme further advances the knowledge obtained in the undergraduate programs in three fields:(1) Electrical Engineering, offering specializations inembedded systems,infocommunication systems,electrical machines and drives;(2) Software Engineering, offering specializations inapplied computer science,system development;(3) Business Information Systems, offering specializations inAnalytical Business Intelligence.

85The Mechanical Engineering Program at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics began in 1863, and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering was established soon afterward, beginning official operations in the 1871/72 academic year. The Faculty is justly proud of its continuous and progressive 150-year history and now offers undergraduate and graduate programs in both Hungarian and English.Since the 2006/07 academic year, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has offered a 3.5-year undergraduate B.Sc. degree program in English. The new two-year graduate program in English, leading to an M.Sc. degree started in February 2009, students can start their studies either in the fall or spring semester. Individual postgraduate academic and research programs, which are usually completed in two to three years, are available for those who already have an M.Sc. degree and wish to pursue a Ph.D. degree.
86The undergraduate B.Sc. program of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is designed to continue a tradition of excellence by:• providing a well-established and broad knowledge that graduates of this Faculty can apply immediately in their work and also use as the basis for further studies;• graduating competent engineers who are not only masters of their profession, but also possess an ethical philosophy of engineering based on accuracy, punctuality and reliability as well as a respect for the human element.
87The goals of the Faculty's graduate M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs are: • to train creative, inventive mechanical engineers who can apply the engineering skills and the knowledge they have gained from the natural sciences on a state-of-the-art level; and• to foster the development of leaders in engineering research and development.
88MSc in Mechanical Engineering Modeling at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) This course deals with those time-dependent problems of mechanical engineering, which typically require the efficient modelling of these tasks in order to access the continuously developing methods of computational engineering.Modelling means the understanding and active application of the related theories, which are supported by differential equations and numerical methods in mathematics.Modelling needs also experimental work during the research-development-innovation process in case engineers do not have enough information about the motions and processes they want to capture by a model.
89MSc in Mechanical Engineering Modeling After the brief summary of the required mathematics, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electronics, control and informatics, the students have to choose a major and a minor specialization from the following list of modules: 1. Solid Mechanics 2. Fluid Mechanics 3. Thermal Engineering Design and Technology 5. Industrial Electronics (minor only) Robotics

102The Faculty of Transportation Engineering has been training engineers for the field of transportation and vehicle engineering since Since that time the profile of engineering training has been widened several times.In the academic year of 2006/2007 as a first step of the new type of linear training, at the Faculty of Transportation Engineering, training began at the transportation engineering basic specialty (BSc); in that framework knowledge related to transport, transportation, and mechanization can be attained including knowledge in connection with processes realized in the listed fields and also knowledge related to machines, equipment (vehicles and mobile machinery) realizing those processes.From the academic year 2010/2011 our Faculty launched vehicle basic specialty (BSc), its task is to acquiant students with the design, operation, and control systems of vehicles.
103In the academic year 2008/2009, the Faculty began, as the second stage of the new type of linear training (BSc), the master’s program of three Faculties (MSc): specialties in transportation engineering, logistics engineering and vehicle engineering.With adequate BSc qualification, a certified engineering qualification can be obtained in 2 years at these master’s training specialties. All the fundamental and complementary studies pursued at the Faculty are carried out in accordance with the rules of the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System).The quantity of student work necessary for acquiring the knowledge material of an arbitrary subject is measured through credit-points. One credit-point means in average 30 hours of work for a student, one semester contains a study material with the quantity of 30 credit-points. Minimum condition of course initiation: 5 (or more) paid student status.
105BSc in Transportation Engineering Length of studies: 7 semesters Program objectives: The education of transportation engineers, who are able to design, arrange, operate and control transportation and transport-logistics processes, to fulfil the related official and management tasks, as well as the works related to the selection, operation and maintenance of equipments realising processes, including the elements of infrastructure, informatics and control systems, as well. Possessing the obtained knowledge, the BSc graduate transportation engineers will be able to continue their studies in the second cycle of engineering education (leading to an MSc degree).Specialisations:Specialisation in transportation processes,Specialisation in logistics
106BSc in Vehicle Engineering Length of study: 7 semesters Program objectives: The education of vehicle engineers, who are able to keep in operation road vehicles, railway vehicles, aircraft and ships, as well as building machines and materials-handling machines in a system oriented way, taking into consideration the characteristics of the transportation and transport-logistic processes, furthermore to solve the basic tasks of engineering, concerning their design, development, manufacturing and repair. They can perform special missions with emphasized regard to transport safety, environment protection and energy planning.
