Geological and Geophysical Institute Forms New Department

31. January 2017. 11:40

An agreement was signed on 31 January 2017 between the Geological and Geophysical Institute of Hungary (known as MFGI) and the University of Miskolc to create a new department.

The agreement leads to a further strengthening of the two institutions’ decades-long cooperation in the fields of both education and research. The cooperation agreement leads to the formation of a new department within the Institute of Geophysics and Geoinformatics. The department, called the MFGI Department, is to be headed by Dr. Zsuzsanna Plank, honorary associate professor, assigned by MFGI.

The new department, staffed by MFGI members, will assist the bachelor, master and doctoral education in the Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering (many of whose programmes are taught nowhere else in Hungary) by contributing knowledge gained through MFGI’s broad experience in industrial and field research.
