QS World University Rankings

The Silesian University of Technology (SUT) is a place that, without any doubts, educates successful people. It is a modern higher education institution with 75 years of tradition in teaching, research and science. It was established in 1945 as a scientific and educational facility for Upper Silesia, the most industrialized area in Poland, and one of the most industrialized in Europe.

The SUT consists of fifteen faculties – eleven in Gliwice, two in Zabrze and two in Katowice. The main seat of the SUT is in Gliwice, a charming, 800 years old city and important scientific, research and design centre in Poland. Gliwice has nearly 200,000 inhabitants and thanks to the SUT it is the second (next to Warsaw) agglomeration of technical intelligence. During the last 20 years, Gliwice has transformed from a city based on heavy industry into a leader in the new technologies. 

The University also established close cooperation with its business environment. In the entire Upper Silesia, there are numerous companies and special economic zones, including the Katowice Special Economic Zone, with numerous enterprises operating in the fields of advanced technologies. The SUT does it in order to reach its main objective, which is to train highly skilled engineering staff for the modern industry and to conduct and implement innovative research. The University also pays special attention to the development of entrepreneurship among its students.

The SUT is home to a vibrant community of almost 1,700 of the best and brightest minds. We attract academics whose passion and brilliance drives them to become leaders in their field. The university offers studies on bachelor, master and doctoral level. Studies are conducted in a full-time and a part-time system. The majority of bachelor programmes are 3.5 years long (7 semesters) and master programmes are 1.5 years long (3 semesters) with the possibility of an extension. Studies at the SUT give ample opportunities to broaden your interests. During the academic year, the university is vibrant with activities inspired by the Student Council and various student organizations, over 100 scientific associations and 20 different sports sections, such as basketball, volleyball, cycling, handball, skiing, aerobics etc.

The SUT is also a key player in new technologies. It is here, where new ideas are brought to life, and once applied by the industry they boost the competitiveness of Polish and international companies. The University received two ELSEVIER Research Impact Leaders Awards. In 2016 in the Engineering and Technology category and in 2018 in the Social Sciences category as one of the higher education institutions whose publications had the greatest impact on the perception of Polish science in the world. The Silesian University of Technology also ranked 4th  in the recent Perspektywy Foundation Ranking of Engineering Studies 2018 and 9th among all Polish universities.
