University of Miskolc
The history of the university is dated back to 1735, when it was established. The world’s first higher
education institution on technology, the Mining Academy of Selmecbánya, represented special knowledge
and value. Nowadays it has seven faculties. Among them is the Mechanical engineering and informatics,
Material science and Earth science faculties. There are about 10000 students at the university.
