The History of the Faculty of Engineering
In Hungary, the university education of food industry experts started at the advanced food industry engineering schools of Budapest and Szeged in 1962. In 1970, combining the advanced food industry engineering schools of Budapest and Szeged an independent college came to life under the name of College of Food Industry, Szeged. The College became the educational basis of food technology, mechanics, and process operation engineers. From 1986, the College of Food Industry became the College Faculty of the University of Horticulture and Food Industry, and it operated as József Attila University, Szeged, College Faculty of Food Industry in 1998-1999. From 1 January 2000, it was the College Faculty of the University of Szeged - the legal successor institution - with the name of College Faculty of Food Industry, Szeged, and with the same educational tasks. As a result of the growth of the educational profile, on 1 January 2007 the name of the institution was changed to Faculty of Engineering within the University of Szeged with 12 faculties. The educational field of the legal predecessor - College of Food Industry, Szeged - was initially linked to food industry which was extended gradually, and today there are 6 university BSc and 4 MSc trainings. Now, the faculty - in accordance with today’s needs - is the one of the most important bases of engineering education at the University of Szeged and in the Southern Great Plain Region with its highly qualified experts in possession of academic degrees, and with modernly equipped training rooms and laboratories.
