The objectives of the programme is to train professionals who

  • possess the basic theoretical and practical knowledge to understand the physical phenomena of the natural world, and are able to operate equipment that work in accordance with the laws of physics;
  • are able to continue their studies in the second cycle i.e. in the master’s course and have the capacity to improve their professional skills and adapt to new development either individually or through participating in an organized course;
  • possess the knowledge and modern scientific approach that enables them to embark on career paths in research and development, engineering  industries as well as government scientific services sectors.

The Faculty of Science at ELTE nationally has had long-standing traditions in tertiary-level physics education. As a result of the Bologna process a new educational system has been developing in higher education in Hungary, which means that the traditional physics-based degree programs – such as physics, physics teacher, IT–physics, astronomy, geophysics and meteorology, previously taught at ELTE – appear as independent majors only in the second cycle. The main objective of the BSc course in Physics, founded in 2006, is to lay the foundation for the above majors in such a way that our BSc graduates leaving the university will also be able to enter the labour market. The Institute of Physics strives to preserve the values and diversity of physics education in the changing educational structure, as well.
