Dean’s Message


The Faculty of Architecture is one of the oldest institutions of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, educating architects for the last 146 years. At the end of the 19th century architects including Imre Steindl, Alajos Hauszmann, Frigyes Schulek defined the city scape of Budapest, adding to this faculties colourful history are names like Ernő Rubik – the Rubik’s Cube inventor, Ádám Somlai-Fisher – founder of Prezi and Gábor Domokos who along with his colleagues developed the Gömböc “Sphere” experiments.
Our diploma course has been accredited throughout europe since 1986, carrying worldwide recognition. Our curricula were organised on Swiss and German models. The Faculty has maintained these traditions for the last 40 years but provides additional European and international dimensions through guest lecturers from abroad, topical short courses, workshop seminars and exchange programs.
As dean and lecturer I wish to share with you my pleasure of the experience gained through student-teacher collaboration, the great aims we have for  future creative research, and wish to engage our teaching staff as part of your future journey and growth as professional individuals.
Architecture and architects as a profession are multi-layered. Amongst our faculties graduates there are colleagues we can find who design our built environment implement the economic background, much in the same way as construction applies the development of innovative use of materials and structures to organise and develop our settlements.
The faculty provides the need and ability to think responsibly alongside the additonal expertise required to garauntee the future of a specific architectural lifestyle.

BME Faculty of Architecture’s mission

For nearly 150 years the Faculty of Architecture at BME has undergone a continuous process of transformation to preserve its solid foundation in the tradition of pedagogy. Our training contributes to solving the of social, economic, environmental and cultural challenges associated with globalization, by training creative architects who are capable of reflecting on and reacting to the needs of an integrated ecosystem.
The Faculty has a unique set of values and advantages among European training workshops, resulting from the traditional duality of our artistic and technical training courses and the synergy found between them.
The Faculty focuses on humanity, so that our tutors and students find their place, ambitions are met, providing a diverse base for collaborative research and creativity based upon our continuous development of internal energies.
Our basic, undergraduate, postgraduate, masters and doctoral courses continue to keep pace with the increasingly specialised needs required of our alumni to hold  competitive positions in the labour market.
The architectural profession is very diverse. From space-shaping to social needs, from creating technical solutions and processes to protect our built environment, up to the development of new materials, technologies, or the shaping of the world cities. The task of the Faculty is to develop the necessary responsibilities and capabilities required for these roles.
