Széchenyi István University

Egyetem square 1. Gyor View map


Gyor has always been an important city of education. Besides the secular and religious elementary and secondary schools from the 18th century, institutions of tertiary education can also be found here, which have withstood the tests of time. The Jesuit Academy founded in 1718 offered theological, philosophical and juridical training, and from 1745 secular students could also study at the institution. The Royal Academy of Gyõr began its work in 1776. Giants of literature and jurisprudence pursued studies here such as Ferenc Deák, László Csányi (he was the Minister of Transport and Labour in 1848 after István Széchenyi) and Kálmán Mikszáth. The Academy continued to function until the end of the 19th century (1892). In 1968 the Transportation and Telecommunications Faculty of Technical Sciences (this was the previous title of the university) was established. The faculty specialised in training engineers for transportation and telecommunications infrastructure. The actual main building of the university was built in this year on the picturesque bend of the Moson Danube within walking distance of the baroque city. The institution bears the name of István Széchenyi the „Greatest Hungarian”.
