Historical background

Wrocław University of Technology (Politechnika Wrocławska) was founded in 1945. The first group of Polish academics, mostly from Lvov, came to Wrocław on the 9th and 10th of May, 1945, three days after the capitulation of Festung Breslau. The University was housed in the buildings of the former Technische Hochschule Breslau, which had existed since 1910. The first lecture was held on the 15th of November, 1945, and since then that day has been celebrated as the University's anniversary.

Education

At present, Wrocław University of Technology has 32,274 students studying in Wrocław and at its three branches located in the largest towns of the region: Legnica, Wałbrzych and Jelenia Góra. It employs a staff of almost 4,200 (including 1,679 academic teachers), which makes the university the largest employer in Wrocław; it has about 270 buildings with modern laboratories, workshops, libraries and large and small lecture theatres and rooms, equipped with audio-visual and multimedia devices; it has a number of technical workshops, self-transport and repair bases, and a rich social, sport and recreation base. To date, apr. 90,000 students have graduated from Wrocław University of Technology with M.Sc. or B.Sc. degrees, and 4,324 with Ph.D. degrees; of the latter group, 694 have qualified as assistant professors.

New, extremely ambitious tasks have been undertaken by the university, aimed at developing and expanding educational possibilities as determined by inter-disciplinary sciences, technical progress, economic globalisation and fast access to information. Thus, Wrocław University of Technolog's proposed didactic programmes of B.Sc., M.Sc., Ph.D. and postgraduate studies enable the university not only to pass on professional knowledge, but also to shape students' ability to formulate and solve problems independently.

The University of Technology offers engineering, masters degree and doctoral studies and provides a wide range of the study fields to be selected at twelve faculties.

Each faculty is headed by a dean, with two or three deputies. Faculties are organized into institutes, chairs and divisions, with teaching and research as the main duties.

Research

The university develops its own research on a large scale, connected not only with the current need to modernise study programmes, but also with a rich service offering directed toward numerous research and scientific institutions, both national and foreign. The breadth of the university's research, educational platforms, projects, expertise and the implementation of all these activities by its scientists embraces over 600 detailed thematic fields. Research goes on in a broadly developed network of laboratories, workshops and teams found at all the faculties and university units. It is possible particularly in co-operation with industry to conduct research qualifying products for quality marks meeting the ISO 9000 norms.

Location

The University campus is situated 1,5 km from the City centre and occupies a large area splendidly located on a bank of the Odra river.
