Overview

Kodolányi János University received a National Excellence Award in 2022, which confirms the fact that the cooperative model of KJU is unique in the Hungarian higher education, bringing the university close to the labour market in terms of study programs and graduate employment. In the field of internationalization KJU is very active with over 260 partnerships in 36 countries all around the globe.

The main advantage of BProf programs is this amazing amount of practice: by the time you finish your studies, you’ll have hundreds of hours of real-life work experience and you’ll be more than ready to snatch your first real job. During the 6 semesters, over 65% of your studies will be practical courses, project work and coding, with a much smaller amount of theoretical classes. The last 2 semesters are entirelly practice-based and conducted together with company tech departments.

Over 90% of Kodolányi János University students find a job within 6 months after graduation.

KJU’s course prepares you for careers in the rapidly growing area of smart technologies, which is foreseen to be the largest driver of technological and economic development over the next several decades.

The ongoing technical revolution will require engineers who are competent in both computer software and hardware and who have the engineering skills to design and implement complex, intelligent systems. The aim of the course is to equip students with a solid skillset in modern techniques in the field of cyber security by providing quality instruction needed for IT professionals who can understand IT processes in general, and capable of internationalization for global business/institutional environment.

One of the main focuses is the field of the Cyber security, where Students will be prepared to achieve robust sovereignty. The other key element is the artificial intelligence where knowledge will be derived from data.

The KJU program complies with all global, European, and Asian normative professional, global occupational and accreditation rules:
• The KJU program combines the best elements of business school education, with university academic environment using applied research and third role of universities for IT and innovation.

We are proud of: Patrik Bartók – Student of Computer Science Operational Engineering BProf who was the winner of the Linguistics and Informatics Section of the Institutional Scientific Student Conference:
“The reason why I chose KJU was because I liked what they offered within the bachelor course. My ideal university is an institution which has highly experienced lecturers, who are knowledgeable, who focus on their students’ demands and not just pass on the theory. The courses and the contents offered a KJU are not similar to anything I have experienced before, the theories are not based on the timetable or certain textbooks, they are tailor-made to each student. Thus, we are not just studying in a repetitive mode where theory and practical studies are occurring. On the contrary, we are working individually and in teams to carry out different projects, and at each step we communicate and update our lecturers for improvements and there is always feedback for further developments. Whenever we need assistance in our studies, or if we have any questions, the lecturers are always available and helpful!”
