Under the Hungarian law on higher education, foreign university courses are tied to an agreement between Hungary and the university’s home state.
Notre Dame will cooperate with Hungary’s Pázmány Péter University to offer courses in chemical and civil engineering as well as mechatronics, Szijjártó told MTI.
The Pázmány University will offer a Vatican-approved course on sustainable development in Indiana, he said. The agreement will expand the two universities’ cooperation which so far involved smallscale programmes and lecturer exchanges, he said.
Engineering courses by prestigious institutions such as Notre Dame, which ranks 150th among the world’s universities, will add to the quality of higher education in Hungary, which in turn will define the country’s competitiveness in years to come, Szijjártó said.
