2. INFORMATION ON SELECTING COURSES ON NEPTUN:
On Neptun you can have a look at the registration/subject registration periods under „Information”, then „Periods” (Please choose: 2023/24/1).
Students register on Neptun on their own under Administration, then Enrollment/Registration, Choose 2023/24/1, Enroll, Term status: Active or Passive. Registration is obligatory, passive status must be registered as well. If a student has unpaid items on Neptun or he/she has pending tuition fees, selecting active/passive student status and course selection is disabled.
In case you have any kind of Neptun technical problem relating to subject registration, please contact your faculty administrator from the International Office, Faculty of Engineering via email by providing your Neptun-code and full name. He/she will remove the technical failure so that you can complete the subject registration on your own. Contact details (International Office, Faculty of Engineering)
Subject registration on Neptun: under “Subjects”, then “Register for subjects”. When registering, term 2023/24/1 should be selected. Note: On the right there is a drop down menu where the curriculum or the stream can be selected on Neptun. Some courses are available if the curriculum in question is selected (e.g. Mechanical Eng. BSc 2017), others are available if the stream in question (e.g. Operation and Maintenance Specialization) is chosen. Please do not forget to register for both lecture and practice/seminar if both of them are available. Please always read the "note" and "description" fields on Neptun which contain essential technical information about the course. For example, a course can have more than one group. Some groups are meant for Civil Eng. BSc students, others are meant for Mechanical Eng. or Mechatronic Eng. BSc students (to avoid timetable conflict/clash). If the subjects do not appear in your timetable on Neptun for some reason, please check the time and venue of the class under “Subjects”, “Registered subjects”, then click on the “Subject name”.
If you need to take an exam course or a comprehensive exam, please sign up for it in the subject registration period (on Neptun under "Register for subjects") so that you can register for an exam date in the exam period. Later on (during the study period or the examination period) it will not be possible to register for an exam course or a comprehensive exam. In case you want to take an exam course but it is not available on Neptun, please contact the course instructor or the administrative assistant from the department. (An exam course does not have scheduled classes. It is an opportunity for students who have already obtained the signature in a course ending with an exam grade. Students can take the exam in the particular exam course in the examination period. The grade for the next unit can only be submitted on Neptun if the grade has previously been submitted for the exam course/prerequisite course.)
Also, in general, if a course is supposed to be available on Neptun but it is not (e.g courses from curricula before 2017), please get in touch with your administrative officer from Faculty of Engineering, International Office without delay in the subject registration period. You might be required to fill out a request form so that you can be registered for the given course.
In case you have obtained the signature previously in a course and intend to take the next unit which is built upon it, please get in touch with your administrator from the International Office, Faculty of Engineering and ask him/her to help you with subject registration.
In this case, please note that according to the Rules and Regulations of the University of Debrecen, "Same-semester registration for courses building upon each other is possible if the student obtained the semester signature of the prerequisite courses in an earlier semester. Examination requirements of courses need to be completed in the sequence designated in the prerequisites, and failing to do so will result in the Education Committee destroying achieved results."
For more information on the exam period, please click here.
Note: If you started the Civil Eng. BSc program in 2017/18/1 for instance, then generally speaking the 2017 curriculum of Civil Engineering BSc applies to you. To make sure, please check your own curriculum on Neptun under "Subjects", "Register for subjects", "Curriculums".
At our faculty, some courses are available only in the autumn semester (semester 1, 3, 5, 7), others only in the spring semester (semester 2, 4, 6, 8).
When registering for courses, please take into account the prerequisites. Only those courses may be registered whose prerequisites have been fulfilled. If, due to Neptun technical problem or administrative failure, you are able to register for a course without having completed the prerequisite course(s) before, the administrator has the right to delete your course registration on Neptun.
Regarding the system of prerequisites, please see page 89 article 6 section 7 in the Rules and Regulations.
Timetables will shortly appear here:
For the time being please check Neptun for timetable information.
