About eight hundred of the 2,800 students of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Debrecen participate in the English-language courses of TTK. The foreign students came from more than 50 countries. The international scientific conference on Friday was organized for them by the International Student Union, to enable them to familiarize themselves with the faculty's research and scientific work.
- At our faculty, education is based on high-quality research work. Academic work is a requirement not only of lecturers, but also of students. The latest students must be involved in the activities of one of our research groups is when they are writing their diploma thesis. However, they have the opportunity to do this much earlier, since after the first semester students are offered the possibility of participation in scientific work - Ferenc Kun, dean of the DE Faculty of Science and Technology explained at the opening of the event.
The professor added: the students are becoming more and more actively involved in research, which is also indicated by the fact that about fifty students of the faculty participated in this year's National Scientific Student Conference, including five foreign students. One of the foreign submissions won second place.
At Friday's scientific program, foreign students participating in TTK's research shared their own experience. In basic and applied research, the faculty's extremely strong corporate relations system plays a prominent role. Noémi Németh, of Vitesco Technologies, one of TTK's corporate partners, also gave a presentation at the event. The HR expert gave the students practical advice on how to handle a job interview, among other things.
The organizers hope that, due to the scientific program organized for the second time this year, even more foreign students will be involved in TTK's internationally recognized research in the future.
