Silesian University of Technology

'The Silesian University of Technology has a history of 65 years. It has become an important public culture and opinion-forming institution, deeply rooted in the city of Gliwice and Upper Silesia region. It’s special function is an outcome of the fact that for many successive years our University served as a specific “knowledge deposit” , thanks to the creative work of its professors and other staff. We successfully utilize our human resources in research and education processes and make the results available for the public benefit and market advantage.

The Silesian University of Technology is the biggest technical university in our region and one of the biggest in Poland, currently educating about 30 000 students on 14 Faculties in 48 engineering disciplines. We provide graduates of engineering who are ready to work as managers of Silesian industry and of enterprises far beyond our region. As an organization with big research and teaching potential we exert a stimulating impact on the growth of Silesia and Zagłębie and significantly contribute to the creation of the economy based on knowledge management.

I have been involved with the Silesian University of Technology for many years and am fully aware of not only its renown and value but also, at the same time, of the challenges that we are facing. Nowadays it is only the knowledge of the citizens obtained in the process of education that empowers them and endows them with the capability of meeting the requirements of our modern world.

The development of the economy and society drawn on knowledge must be based on a properly organized, modern system of education and training, within the framework of which innovation can flourish. The conditions for the growth of entrepreneurship and commercialization of research and development works have already been created and shall be continuously improved at our University. Thus, I sincerely believe that our University, due to the commitment of its academic environment, has become an innovative research and educational institution that will soon play an important role in the European Higher Education Framework.'
