The legal predecessors of University of Sopron have a long history with the oldest one dating back to 1735. The institution went through several structural changes; it is successor of University of West Hungary and offers up-to-date knowledge at four faculties specialising in forestry and wood technology, pedagogy and economics. Our academic offer includes programmes from bachelor level (BA, BSc) to master level (MA, MSc), as well as the doctoral level (PhD) in three languages: Hungarian, English and German. The campus is located in a national nature conservation area, the Botanical Garden (17.2 hectare - 42.5 acre) which serves also instructional purposes as a collection of living plants. Faculty of Forestry: Education of forest engineers looks back on two hundred years of history and is unique in Hungary even today. Further programmes offered by the Faculty: Environment Protection Engineering, Nature Conservation Engineering and Wildlife Management Engineering on both BSc and MSc levels and Surveyor and Land Management Engineering on BSc level. Most important research areas: forest management, impact assessment of the changing environment, nature conservation, wildlife biology, wildlife management, molecular bases of the physiological processes of forest trees, dendro-chemistry, genetics and geoinformatics. Simonyi Karoly Faculty of Engineering, Wood Sciences and Applied Arts: In addition to the nationally unique wood-related higher education training, the Faculty offers programmes in information technologies, industrial design, mechatronics, architecture, design and graphics. The engineering, informatics and applied arts areas do not merely co-exist, but complement each other allowing the training of versatile and competent professionals. Benedek Elek Faculty of Pedagogy: The Faculty is an institution with the longest tradition in early childhood education in Hungary. It has played a key role in Hungarian pre-school education since 1875. Today the Faculty offers courses covering almost the full palette of pedagogy and social sciences extended with arts, music and sports education. Alexandre Lamfalussy Faculty of Economics: The Faculty has recently been named after the world-renowned economist. It means obligation, possibilities and high expectations now and in the future for students as well as for teachers. The Faculty puts emphasis on the personal contacts between students and professors.
