 There are basically 5 groups of subjects which you can complete as optional courses:

1.    Every semester the Faculty of Engineering offers courses that are not part of any BSc or MSc curriculum. These subjects provide extra knowledge mostly in engineering fields. Some of these courses are offered for students from certain majors or require prior knowledge. Important! These optional courses can start only if the minimum number of applicants is at least 20, the number of credit points allocated to these subject is 2 or 3 credits, number of contact hours: 2 hours weekly.

2.    Hungarian language

The Coordinating Center for International Education offers two courses free of charge at beginner and elementary levels for our non-medical students. Every student can apply to the beginner course (Hungarian language 1) who have not registered to our Hungarian courses before. The elementary course (Hungarian language 2) is available for students who have completed the beginner level or who have studied Hungarian elsewhere.

The registration takes place through the Neptun system. You can find the courses with the following codes at the optional courses:

TTIS_HUNG_LANG1  Hungarian Language 1 (beginner level)

TTIS_HUNG_LANG2  Hungarian Language 2 (elementary level)

The courses consist of 40 classes (2x2 classes/week). They will start on 24 February and last for 10 weeks. You will get the course materials from your teacher, free of charge.

You can miss up to 20% of the classes (4 occasions). The value of each course is 2 credits and you will get a grade at the end.

If you have any further questons, feel free to contact Ms Annamaria Racz at Coordinating Center for International Education ( ).

3.    If you would like to widen your knowledge in the engineering field and you are interested in other majors which the Faculty of Engineering offers in English, you can register for some courses from our BSc or MSc programs. The list of courses available can be found below. These subjects do not require special field-specific knowledge, but could be useful and interesting for all engineering students. These courses are open according to the particular curriculum of the training program, therefore there is no restriction on the minimum number of applicants. Please note! The credit points which can be gained by completing these courses as optional ones are always 3 even if the normal credit point assigned to them is higher. The contact hours (can be more than 2 hours per week) can be found in the curriculum of the particular program.

Important! As these courses are not included in your curriculum, you cannot find them on Neptun. Please contact your administrator in the International Office (room 123, 124 or 206), they will register you for the course.

 

Course descriptions are available here: https://eng.unideb.hu/en/node/518

 

4.    You can choose optional courses also from other faculties of the university. These can be found on Neptun under “All other subjects in the institution”. These courses are accepted with maximum 3 credits! You need to know that certain courses can be seen in the Neptun system but are not open for students from other faculties or have prerequisites. Course codes of the Faculty of Engineering start either with MF... or MK... .

Courses offered by the Faculty of Arts in 2019/20/2 for incoming Erasmus students and international students:

Timetable information here.

5.    Please take note that there is the possibility for students who take part in mobility programs to transfer courses competed abroad as optional subjects if they are not equivalent to any other subjects in the curriculum. If you plan to go abroad, you will most likely have subjects from this period of time as optional subjects.

 

If you plan to continue your studies on a Master’s program and you are considering choosing an another major (for example Mechatronical Engineering MSc after Mechanical Engineering BSc), it is recommended to ask the Department, which subjects would prepare you for your MSc studies so that those courses can be completed as optional subjects during your BSc studies. 

To the attention of transfer students! The subjects from your previous studies which have not been recognized as compulsory subjects can be transferred as optional subjects. In this case the “Credit transfer request form” should be filled out.
