Materials science and materials engineering is a key aspect of most companies the world over.

In the race to make things stronger, cheaper, lighter, more functional and more sustainable, the manipulation of materials, their properties and processes is of key importance. This means graduates in this area can work, or do research in most countries of the world. 


Our engineering courses were among the first ones to be started at the University of Dunaújváros. A wide network of industrial connections, professors with extensive experience both in research, practice and teaching and an up-to-date infrastructure gives an excellent basis for engineering education. As a result of the last 10 years’ investments our laboratories are equipped with world-class measuring devices and other facilities that students can become acquainted with and use during their practical classes.


At the University of Dunaújváros Materials Engineering BSc program consists of 7 semesters. The Material Engineering BSc course at UOD offers specialisation in Material Technology. This BSc programme offers the knowledge of material engineers who are able to interpret and control the chemical processes in the materials, to test and to inspect the characteristics and the structure of the materials in order to change them by the use of various technologies, and to control and organize the material production technological processes in order to provide the required high-quality of materials in mass production. The students of this study program will acquire in-depth theoretical knowledge that is adequate to enable them to continue with their studies in the graduate, master level.




Why Material Engineering? Material engineers develop, process, and test materials used to create a range of products, from computer chips and aircraft wings to golf clubs and biomedical devices. They study the properties and structures of metals, ceramics, plastics, composites, and other substances to create new materials that meet the certain mechanical, electrical, and chemical requirements. They also help to select materials for specific products, develop new ways to use existing materials, and develop new materials. That explains why the field of materials is likely to be one of the key areas in the next technological revolutions, and is a growth engine for the global economy, with important effects on quality of life, health, safety, and environment.


 This qualification provides employment opportunities in the following sectors of industry:

  • metallurgy,
  • electronics industry,
  • chemical industry,
  • energy industry and machinery engineering.


Students’ opinion


„After coming back to my country, my experience in Hungary helped me a lot to get a good job at a multinational company, besides, the classes at UOD, which were way more practical than my classes in Brazil, helped me to improve my academic skills, so now, I can say I have a complete graduation experience.
I would like to recommend this university for people who are looking for a great graduation and a new experience in a country that has a totally different culture.”

„Studying at UOD brought me a lot of growth. I was able to put into practice all the theoretical knowledge that I have learned during the classes, had contact with other courses like Production, besides having the opportunity to practice my English, make contacts, new friends and develop skills in different areas.”
