The Simonyi Karoly Collegium is a student-based professional organisation at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics of the BUTE. The Collegium took the name of Károly Simonyi, the Faculty's admired professor, in 2003. The aim of the Simonyi Károly Collegium is to provide its members and the students of the Faculty with the opportunity to acquire knowledge complementary to their university education. To this end, it organises courses, conferences and other professional events and provides infrastructure to support students' independent professional work. The Collegium aims to publish the results achieved by its members as widely as possible, and to make their work known to other units of Hungarian higher education and to professionals.
