Our department is part of the largest university of technology in Hungary and it is located in the centre of an extensive campus.


You will acquire state-of-the-art knowledge in cognitive science and neroscience in a friendly and informal environment, where in addition to teaching solid theoretical foundations, special emphasis is placed on practical training in our various on-site laboratories and at cooperating institutions.


One-to-one consultations and working in small groups are a major part of our approach both to teaching and to research.


The research activities of our department are firmly embedded in the international science arena. Our staff regularly publish in prestigious international science journals.

Our department is also home to a PhD programme of international standards.
