ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) Laser Research Centre

The Extreme Light Infrastructure Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS) Laser Research Centre is one of the pillars of this infrastructure was built in Szeged and is one of the largest scientific investments in Europe, with support from the European Union amounting to over 70 billion HUF.

The purpose of ELI-ALPS is to establish a unique, laser-based European user research facility where ultrashort laser pulses and light sources will be accessible for international researchers. ELI-ALPS’ Lasers will able to generate the shortest and greatest number of laser pulses per second so far. This allows researchers to examine elementary intramolecular physical processes and also provides unparalleled infrastructure to carry out basic and applied research on an ultrafast timescale for outstanding research results in biology, medicine and material sciences. There is a cooperation agreement between ELI-ALPS and the University resulting in the collaboration in the organisation of research projects and training programmes. The entire complex was opened in May 2017 and the facility will become fully operational in 2019.

A scientific industrial park is planned in a 80-hectare area surround the ELI-ALPS facility and is welcoming all start-up and successful businesses that could utilize the laser research centre and are drawn to Szeged by the inspirational atmosphere of the city. The Hungarian Molecular Medicine Centre of Excellence will also operate in the ELI Science Park and will be established as a large scientific investment of the EU. An automotive industry competence centre may also be formed in conjunction with the University of Kecskemét. The first facilities were opened in 2019.

Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.
