About the programme

The BSc programme in Agricultural Engineering aims to train agricultural engineers capable of realising production, leadership, controlling and organisational work in agricultural companies; performing jobs in enterprises dealing with the processing and marketing of agricultural products; and completing professional management tasks in connection with agriculture. Basic theoretical fields such as botany, zoology, mathematics, economics, business law, international agriculture and safety at work build a foundation for professional courses including crop production, horticulture, plant protection, animal husbandry, animal nutrition,

animal health, farm business management and business organization, among others.


The last semester of the programme consists of an internship at an agricultural company. Throughout the programme, there is a focus on developing skills such as planning, directing, controlling and performing soil preparation, nutrient supply, seeding, plant protection, harvesting and basic processing of arable and horticultural crops, and planning, directing, controlling and performing animal husbandry. Students will also work extensively with nutrition and hygiene, organising and directing waste management, observing environmental aspects, and preparing economic plans, calculations, as well as organising marketing activities. Graduates of the Faculty usually choose their careers in agriculture and agribusiness.

SZTE Experience

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.

I’m from Ecuador and a Ph.D. student from the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program. I first heard about the University of Szeged on the internet. The general study environment is nice and student life in the city is lovely. With my program and the academic system, I can control my time which is a plus. The city is very affordable, and I live in the city center. One of my favorite extra-curricular activities is the Hungarian cultural programs. I have so many favorite spots, but parks are top on the list. The professors and staffs are very approachable. The mentors and classmates also did an excellent job to explore and know the city better. I hope to continue my career as a professor, and I would recommend the university to friends because it is, in general, a beautiful place.
