2. INFORMATION ON SELECTING COURSES ON NEPTUN:
On Neptun you can have a look at the registration/subject registration periods under „Information”, then „Periods” (Please choose: 2020/21/2).
Students register on Neptun on their own under Administration, then Enrollment/Registration, Choose 2020/21/2, Enroll, Term status: Active or Passive. Registration is obligatory, passive status should be registered, as well. If a student has unpaid items on Neptun or he/she has pending tuition fees, selecting active/passive student status and course selection will not be possible.

In case you have any kind of Neptun technical problem relating to subject registration, please contact your faculty administrator from the International Office, Faculty of Engineering via email by providing your Neptun-code and full name. He/she will remove the technical failure so that you can complete the subject registration on your own.
Contact details (International Office, Faculty of Engineering): https://eng.unideb.hu/en/contact-details-international-office-faculty-en...

Subject registration on Neptun: under “Subjects”, then “Register for subjects”. When registering, term 2020/21/2 should be selected. Note: On the right there is a drop down menu where the curriculum or the stream can be selected on Neptun. Some courses are available if the curriculum in question is selected (for e.g. Mechanical Eng. BSc 2017), others are available if the stream in question (for e.g. Operation and Maintenance Specialization) is chosen. Please do not forget to register for both lecture and practice/seminar if both of them are available. Please always read the "note" and "description" fields on Neptun which contain essential technical information about the course e.g. a course can have more than one group. Some groups are meant for Civil Eng. BSc students, others are meant for Mechanical Eng. or Mechatronic Eng. BSc students (to avoid timetable conflict/clash). If for some reasons subjects do not appear in your timetable on Neptun, please check time and venue of the class under “Subjects”, “Registered subjects”, then click on the “Subject name”.

If you need to take an exam course or a comprehensive exam, please sign up for it in the subject registration period (on Neptun under "Register for subjects") so that you can register for an exam date in the exam period. Later on (during the study period or the examination period) it will not be possible to register for an exam course or a comprehensive exam. In case you want to take an exam course but it is not open on Neptun, please contact the course instructor or the administrative assistant from the department. (An exam course does not have scheduled classes. It is an opportunity for students who have already obtained the signature in a course ending with an exam grade. Students can take the exam in the particular exam course in the examination period. The grade for the next unit can only be submitted on Neptun if the grade has previously been submitted for the exam course/prerequisite course.)

Also, in general, if a course is supposed to be open on Neptun but it is not (for. e.g courses from curricula before 2017), please get in touch with your administrative officer from Faculty of Engineering, International Office without delay in the subject registration period. You might be required to fill out a request form so that you can be registered for the particular course.

 

In case you have obtained the signature previously in a course and intend to take the next unit which is built upon it, please get in touch with your administrator from the International Office, Faculty of Engineering and ask him/her to help you with subject registration.

In this case, please note that according to the Rules and Regulations of the University of Debrecen, "Same-semester registration for courses building upon each other is possible if the student obtained the semester signature of the prerequisite courses in an earlier semester. Examination requirements of courses need to be completed in the sequence designated in the prerequisites, and failing to do so will result in the Education Committee destroying achieved results."

 
In order to help you follow the right order, we will disable exam registration in case of the parallelly registered subjects built on others, so we would like to ask you to let us know when the grade of the prerequisite subject gets entered in the Neptun system in the exam period so that we can unlock exam registration for the subjects built on them.
 
Please note that this will not affect exam registration for other subjects.

For more information on the exam period, please click here.

 

 

Note: If you started for e.g. Civil Eng. BSc in 2017/18/1, then generally speaking Curriculum of Civil Engineering BSc 2017 applies to you. To make sure please check your own curriculum on Neptun under "Subjects", "Register for subjects", "Curriculums".
At our faculty particular courses are open only in the autumn semester (semester 1, 3, 5, 7), others are open only in the spring semester (semester 2, 4, 6, 8).
This semester courses are open from semester 2, 4, 6 and 8 according to curriculum 2017 and after.

When registering for courses please take into account the prerequisites. Only those courses can be registered whose prerequisites have been fulfilled. If due to Neptun technical problem or administrative failure you are able to register for a course without having completed the prerequisite course(s) before, the administrator has the right to delete your course registration on Neptun.
Regarding the system of prerequisites, please see page 89 article 5 section 4 in Rules and Regulations:
https://eng.unideb.hu/sites/default/files/rulesandregulations-2013.pdf
Timetables will shortly appear here:
