WrUT - Wroclaw University of Technology

The university has been functioning under the current name since 1945. It was established and organised by researchers from Lvov and Warsaw. Since the very beginning of its existence, it has been an important centre of technical education. Today, it belongs to the best technical universities in Poland - over 32 000 students study here under the guidance of 2 000 academic teachers, at the 12 faculties and the Department of Fundamental Studies, as well as in the 3 regional branches. The mission of Wroclaw University of Technology is to shape the creative and critical personalities of students and define the directions of development in science and technology. The education offered at our institution is strongly linked with scientific research and the needs of economy and is consistent with standards of the European Higher Education Area.

The university maintains lively contacts with teaching and research institutions from all over the world - from Europe to America. The university is involved in the following research programmes: LLP-Erasmus, Erasmus-Mundus, the 6th and 7th Framework Programme, and Leonardo da Vinci. Students have the opportunity to develop their scientific and creative passions, as well. The kind of such activity depends solely on the student's imagination. The high level of research carried out, matching the world's best, and the well-equipped laboratories result in a wide co-operation with Polish and international companies, e.g. Philips Lighting Poland S.A., KOGENERACJA S.A., Toyota, LG, WABCO, EnergiaPro, KGHM Polska Miedz S.A., Whirlpool. As part of these agreements, joint research projects are carried out.
