Welcome to our website!

The Savaria Institute of Technology (SIT) was established on the 1st of July, 2014, as a part of the University of West Hungary at the campus of Savaria University Center. In 2017, 1st of February, the Savaria University Center fused with the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) and as a part of this process the Savaria Institute of Technology was integrated into the Faculty of Informatics.

The offered programs of the Savaria Institute of Technology in Szombathely:

  • Mechanical Engineering BSc: the education is provided in a traditional and in a dual way where the courses in natural- and differentiated engineering sciences are both taught by the Institute. The courses are offered both in Hungarian and in English.
  • Technical Management BSc: Technical managers are equipped with appropriate knowledge in natural and engineering sciences, economic and management skills. These courses are needed to be able to carry out integrated solutions in production and services with regard to material, financial and IT fields.
  • Teacher program with Technology orientation BSc and MSc:  In our so-called technique teacher program we provide the knowledge that is needed for technical basics and education, pedagogical research, design and development tasks for elementary school education.

As “the strength of a castle lies not in the walls, but in the souls of the defenders” (Géza Gárdonyi), so lies the “strength” or to say quality of the Institute in the people working there. Our staff obtained their master diplomas in Hungary, Transylvania, Transcarpathia and Germany, then the majority carried out research or defended their doctoral thesis at different western-European, north-American or Canadian universities.
