University of Miskolc

The university was established by act of parliament in 1949. The university is the successor of the University of Mining and Metallurgy of Selmecbanya (established in 1735), which was one of the first schools under non-ecclesiastical control in the Habsburg Empire. After the Ausgleich the name of the Selmecbanya university was changed to Royal Hungarian Academy of Mining and Forestry.
 
When Hungary lost its northern territories to Czechoslovakia after the Treaty of Trianon, the Academy was moved from Selmecbanya to Sopron.
During the Socialist era of Hungary the northern parts of the country were developed into an important industrial zone. According to this the government decided to have a university founded in Miskolc, the largest city of the area. The construction began in 1950. In 1952 the metallurgy faculty moved from Sopron to Miskolc, and the mining faculty was divided between the two cities until 1957, when this faculty moved to Miskolc too. The faculties that stayed in Sopron formed the University of Forestry, which later became a part of todays University of West Hungary.
