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.

Applied Mathematics: In today’s typically inter- and multidisciplinary working environment, there is a strong need for professionals with a strong theoretical background, capable of analysing and effectively solving mathematical problems in engineering applications. Our Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics with a specialisation in Engineering Mathematics is unique in the country and represents a niche in this field.

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods applied in engineering and natural sciences, industry and economics, modelling, analysing and studying problems, developing and applying methods to solve them, and providing algorithmic tools for their study.

The aim of the course is to train mathematicians who are able to effectively model and solve problems that arise in real-life applications, within engineering, natural sciences, industry and management. The curriculum follows the recommendations of the SIAM, putting emphasis to application-oriented mathematics, practical applications, modelling and communication skills, team work, computer programming and high-performance computing.

The Applied Mathematics MSc is open to students with a BSc or MSc degree. Students with a degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics or Engineering have an advantage in the area of applied and/or computer science.

Programme structure

- Engineering (Industrial) Mathematics

Applied mathematicians usually work in mixed teams, where their job is to “mine” the mathematics from the project.

The main skills expected of them are:
• Modelling and problem solving skills in diverse and changing domains
• Interest, knowledge and flexibility in applications
• Computer skills and experience
• Written and oral communication skills
• Strong abstraction and analytical skills, logical thinking

Applied mathematics training therefore focuses on three main areas:
• Mathematical skills, in particular modelling and algorithms
• Computer skills (programming, HPC skills, computer graphics, etc.)
• Group work

Career opportunities

The Applied Mathematics MSc focuses on engineering applications, drawing on the professional background and industrial links of the university’s technical faculties.

Graduates will be able to:
• work effectively with development engineers in mathematical modelling of engineering problems,
• mathematical solutions to problems encountered in innovative engineering practice,
• numerically solve problems in engineering,
• effective use of computers.
