In a historic ceremony held at Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), the Senate has unanimously bestowed the prestigious title of Doctor Honoris Causa upon Professor Julius Vancso (S&T-SPT).
Julius is globally recognised as a leading expert in the field of chemical technology, particularly in the design of functional materials at the nanoscale and for his studies on their morphology and structure.
Founded in 1782, Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) is Hungary's foremost university for technology and is considered the world's oldest technology institute with university status and structure. It was the first institution in Europe to provide university-level education for engineers. BME has made a significant global impact in the fields of engineering and science. With its long-standing commitment to excellence, BME has produced numerous distinguished alumni, including three Nobel laureates.
The awarding of the honorary doctorate to Professor Julius Vancso is a moment of great pride for both Budapest University of Technology and Economics and our faculty, S&T. We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Julius on this remarkable recognition.
