Our university

Széchenyi István University is located in Győr, at the centre of Central Europe’s “golden triangle”. We are halfway between the capital of Hungary, Austria and Slovakia, along highway M15, on the river Danube.

This ideal location has made Győr a very important automotive and industrial centre. Here we can find the largest engine factory in the world: Audi Hungaria Motor Kft., and hundreds of automotive suppliers. The University provides education and pursues research in the fields of engineering – especially for the automotive industry, IT, architecture pedagogy, economics, international relations, law, administration, social work, medicine and health, musical arts, agriculture and teacher training. Széchenyi István University’s quality is reflected in the national and international marketplace, as many multinational companies hire our graduates and work with our university (e.g. Audi, Bosch, Flextronics, Grundfos, IBM). Our activities include education at all levels, from vocational courses, Bachelor and Masters level degree programmes to the doctoral level and beyond through life-long learning.

Our university offers unique training and research in the region, which serves engineering-focused production activities, helping build the North-Transdanubian economy and its social and institutional infrastructure. Our activities provide students with a high-level, professional, and practical education. Graduates are thus able to adapt to the highly competitive and changing marketplace.

We have 45 years of tradition and experience in supporting Hungary ́s leading industries with a strong focus on vehicle engineering, transportation and telecommunication. As a result, our university has become the primary driver of the regional economy provider for the public service sector and supplies the human resources and training needs for the North-Transdanubian region.
