EEA Grant – Mobility projects at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) Faculty of Architecture

based on the proposal of EGT/156/M2-0011

under the
EEA Financial Mechanism 2009-2014
Scholarship Programme (HU08)
Mobility Projects in Higher Education
Action (M2)

coordinator institution: Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) Faculty of Architecture

Aim of the project

The two graduate schools of the Faculty of Architecture at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics provide studies in the fields related to architecture and construction. One of our schools focuses on scientific research and leads to a PhD, the profile of the other one is more artistic providing a PhD-equivalent DLA degree. Our students benefit from the strong, personal relation to their supervisors. Although we possess first-class international partners with long, ongoing collaborations the widely debated difficulties of postgraduate studies in architecture challenges us. Since the establishment of the graduate schools in 2000 we managed to introduce good practices of postgraduate studies and interdisciplinary research based mainly on German, Swiss and American examples. Despite of the high reputation of Scandinavian architecture and education, our relations to that area are definitely weaker compared to the above mentioned areas. The main goal of our project is to change this situation and start collaboration with highly ranked universities in Norway, especially NTNU. Beyond introducing the best practices of our prospective partners in our education, we also expect to start research collaborations leading to publications in prestigious international journals. We are deeply convinced that world-class results are based on interpersonal communication, thus the beneficiaries of the present project would be graduate students, as well as their professors and supervisors on both sides.

Project duration: 01.09.2016 – 30.04.2017. 8 months
