Dean's welcome


Welcome to Hódmezővásárhely, the second biggest and significant agricultural area of Hungary. Welcome to the most excellent rural university, the University of Szeged, Faculty of Agriculture.

In our town, the roots of agricultural education lengthens back to 1896, the foundation of Hungarian King’s Agricultural School. Based on this special school, in 1961, the ancestor of the Faculty, the Agricultural Technical Institute of Hódmezővásárhely came up.

Thanks to our past, beyond the academic knowledge, we emphasize the practice-oriented trainings as well. The guarantee of this is the constantly broadening professional network of the Faculty; presently, more than a hundred enterprises, professional organizations, research institutes and chamber institutes take part in the practical education of students’ in conventional, cooperative and dual forms as well.

Our trainings cover the whole agrarian chain, beyond the crop production, animal husbandry and horticulture knowledge, the area of agricultural farming, rural development and wildlife husbandry as well.

Above the three basic degrees: the Agricultural engineer (in Hungarian and English language as well), the Wildlife engineer, the Rural development engineer, we have a master training as well; the Agricultural engineer MSc. Besides, the Faculty provides further higher educational trainings for those who are interested in more practical knowledge.

Our specialized advanced trainings assure the opportunity of life long learning.
