The University of Pécs has 9 faculties, nearly 28 thousand students and 1,500 professors. Its capacity to offer the complete range of domestic higher education possibilities with its 9 faculties provides the unique cultural positions of the University. The development of the IT network that operates at the Pécs premises of the institution began in 1991 and is subject to continuous improvement and expansion. The presentation will introduce the development targets, the quantitative data, the characteristics of Internet and Network use as well as the current and planned future changes of resource stocks in laboratories. In the year 2000, all Nobel prizes were granted to scientists who excelled in the development of new tools to be used in the digital, so-called ICT systems and the elaboration of new, computerised economic methods. The EU is funding €100 million worth of developments in this field. Inspired by the completion of IDP and efforts made by the Ministry of Education in the field, the leadership of UP decided to deal with the radical restructuring and improvement of the informatics system along with IT courses and applications. The presentation will elaborate on the strategy of IT education, the SWOT analysis, training targets, organisational changes, consolidations of the subject, financial sources and the expected results of the development planned.
