Our association, the Hungarian Association of Physics Students (Mafihe), is a non-profit organization ran by students and is a member of IAPS. The Association was founded in 1988 in Budapest, one year after the formation of IAPS. Of the 137 founders, many were also part of the founding of IAPS.

Currently we have Local Committees at five universities, altogether in four cities: in Budapest at Budapest University of Technology and Economics and Eötvös Loránd University, in Debrecen at the University of Debrecen, in Pécs at the University of Pécs and in Szeged at the University of Szeged.

Our goal is to give physics students something beyond the basic academic curriculum, to enrich their education with valuable experiences, to provide them with an outlook on international research, and to foster the professional relationships of our members with Hungarian and foreign physics students. To ensure this, we maintain contact with different organizations at home, and abroad, and we organize various programs.

Besides professional programs, we place great emphasis on cultural and community programs in order to help our members create a cohesive community among physics students. Our first summer school was held in 1993, with one course every year.
