More information




In 2022, Óbuda University was ranked 186th in the QS EECA ranking and 301–350th in the Times World University Rankings (Young University Rankings).

Óbuda University is the number one practice-oriented technical University in Budapest, Hungary. Their engineering and applied science departments and programs are among the nation’s oldest with 140 years of rich tradition, established in 1879.

Óbuda University is an excellent institution in any Engineering or IT field and the most famous for their achievements and leading role in the field of robotics. They are the founder and current leader of the Central European Living Lab for Intelligent Robotics (CELLI), a network of 18 robotics centers and SMEs form 7 countries.

The University has world-class research and education since Óbuda University has
8 internationally recognized research, innovation and service centres including
- Antal Bejczy Center for Intelligent Robotics (iROB)
- Bio-Tech Research Center,
- Physiological Controls Research Center and
- SmartLab Center.

ÓU students have great achievements in several national and international competitions, such as at the Design Challenge Robotics Building, Bosch Electromobil, Mitsubishi-Scholarship, Pneumobil, Shell Eco-marathon, Hajós György Mathematics and PLC Control Engineering Programing Competitions, Spaghetti Bridge Building.

Famous Alumni
József Galamb – The first world-famous student was József Galamb, designer of the FORD Model T.
Charles Balough- President of the Hercules Motor Manufacturing Company, designer of Ford T-modell
Rudolf Emil Kálmán – electrical engineer, mathematician, inventor of Kálmán filter

ÓU students are involved in professional practice at foreign partners annually; students are required and encouraged to participate in active research and design in the project laboratories and to develop their abilities to do independent research.

The purpose of the training is to train engineers in the field of land administration, including state land surveying and mapping, and land surveying and geoinformation enterprises.
They are engineers who can make measurements, they are familiar with the tools of surveying and geospatial data collection (total stations, laser scanners, GNSS receivers, devices and instruments of aerial surveying and remote sensing) as well as data processing and visualization methods.
• They are familiar with the role and implementation of geodetic reference systems.
• They are capable of drawing sketches related to the change in real estate properties, professional documents and set-up in geodetic surveying in construction, construction management, and motion examination tasks, and creating geospatial systems.
• They are involved in the implementation of nature and environmental protection, land protection and real estate development tasks.

Surveying basically provides position information on the surface or above the Earth and its temporal variations. Geodesy provides the corresponding reference frames for surveying based on physical and geophysical considerations.

Surveying and geodetic measurements are performed on terrestrial, air-borne (e.g. UAV) and satellite-borne platforms, and delivers information both on visible light (surveying, phtogrammetry) and other frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum (Remote Sensing). Based on the measurements, geometry, maps, remote sensing and geoinformatic data are derived, and used for a wide range applications, including civil engineering, exploration geophysics, military, hydrology, ecology, oceanography, glaciology and geology. Surveying is the basic of all engineering tasks.
