Overview

Warsaw University of Technology is a research intense, doctoral level academic institution focused on undergraduate and graduate programs almost exclusively in engineering and applied sciences. With over thirty thousand students served by over two thousand professors and instructors, Warsaw University of Technology is the largest and the highest ranking engineering university in Poland. 

The origins of Politechnika Warszawska - Warsaw University of Technology - date back to 1826, the official commencement of educational programs in engineering in our institution. There are seventeen departments/faculties covering almost all fields of engineering and applied science. Sixteen of these faculties are based on two urban campuses in the capital city of Warsaw, and one faculty in the ancient city of Płock in north-central Poland. 
The international position of Warsaw University of Technology is supported by the offer of full B.Sc and M.Sc. study programs in English, run currently at 9 Faculties. These courses are basically aimed at foreign students but they are also available for Polish students who want to broaden their abilities and improve their chance in the world labour market. For students who come from overseas countries, WUT Centre for International Cooperation has opened International Students Office which is there to help them accommodate in the new environment. WUT’s Foreign Language Centre offers special courses of Polish language for foreign students. 

Foreign reputation is, in turn, proven by more by 120 international academic and research cooperation agreements with universities, research centres and high-tech industries from 50 countries around the world (Europe, US, China, Russia and Japan topping the list). WUT offers a broad range of international and European exchange programs for students, teaching staff and researchers, such as: LLP Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus, Leonardo da Vinci, etc. WUT takes part in new Action 2 of Erasmus Mundus program - cooperation with India (Willpower program) for M. Sc. and Ph.D. students and participates in European bilateral cooperation with industrialized countries: EUKLA (cooperation with Republic of Korea) and EU – Canada Student Mobility. ATHENS is a 1 week exchange session, held twice a year, by a network of leading European technical universities (coordinated by ParisTech). WUT also holds over 30 active bilateral agreements concentrated on students exchange, with HEI’s from all over the world, including universities in USA, Latin America and Far East. In addition, WUT students may take part in summer exchange programs organized by many faculties, in cooperation with other universities of technology from all over the world. 

WUT offers also joint educational programs with foreign universities based on bilateral agreements and within the framework of Erasmus Mundus program. WUT has also recently established a Cooperation Platform of CEE Metropolitan Universities of Technology, which is a joint initiative of WUT, Berlin Institute of Technology and the National Technical University of Ukraine. This project has already resulted in the incorporation of 11 leading universities from the Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw University of Technology is a student-friendly university. A flexible programme of studies, broad curriculum offer, well-functioning scholarship system, good sport and tourist base (two sea yachts, its own stadium in the centre of Warsaw and a student hostel in Bieszczady) make up an attractive image of the university. 

Scholarship Fund and Cultural-Development Fund allows for a wide range of activities of the Students’ Self-Government, over 30 student organizations and over 130 scientific research groups. This activity results, among others, in the series conferences, music festivals and concerts, job fairs and other annual student events and parades. Students can realize their passions and talents in artistic groups; at the university there are two choirs, the Song and Dance Company, the Folk Dance Group, The Engineers Band, the Theatre of Warsaw University of Technology and a number of student media (including internet radio and internet TV). The legendary club Stodo?a has been one of the best student clubs in Poland for over 50 years. A spectacular success of the recent years was the participation of the male volleyball AZS team in the Polish first league. WUT offers good accomodation base. There are 12 dormitories available at the moment for international students. 11 of them are located around 25 minutes by foot from the Main Building of the University.
