Campus at the Mátra Mountains
The modern and accessible Gyöngyös campus attracts students due to its traditions in agricultural education and the modern knowledge offered in the fields of economics and informatics. A tenth of freshmen is already international students.
Research in Kompolt
Hungarian plant breeding operates under very diverse ecological conditions. According to the experience of several generations of experts at Rudolf Fleischmann Research Institute, Kompolt is a favourable location for plant breeding because of the proximity of the North Hungarian Mountains, its rain shadow and its harsh winter weather.
Tass-puszta Study Farm of Gyöngyös Campus, has been operating a biomass heating plant for almost a decade. Experiments on the burning of energy crops or agricultural waste are being conducted here and this facility provides the heat needed to grow tomatoes and peppers in the 2,000-square-meter hydroponic greenhouse as well.
Arboretum with literary atmosphere
The estate became the property of Doctor József Kovács in 1845, who established a botanical garden there. There are more than 1,200 species of trees, shrubs and perennials revealing the magical world of different floras in the 25.5-hectare area. Visitors can admire the old and new collections of the garden on 6 hectares every day of the year.
A great variety of degree programmes
The most popular courses in the field of agricultural sciences include bachelor and master programmes in rural agricultural engineering, higher-level vocational trainings in medicinal plants, aromatics and spices, and viticulture and winemaking, which is supported by the fact that the faculty is located in Mátra Wine Region. As for economics-related courses, finance and accounting, trade and marketing, and business administration and management courses have an unbroken popularity for many years.
Exercise for health
Gyöngyös Campus has a long tradition of promoting physical activities, and the proximity of the Mátra Mountains provides an excellent location for this purpose. There have been several day trips and other programmes organized, such as a garbage collection tour to clean a frequently used route, a trip to St. Anne's Chapel on Sár Hill, sports days and bicycle tours on the International Sports Day.
