About

Today’s Wroclaw University of Technology is an inheritor of the tangible property of the German Königliche Technische Hochschule Breslau and the intellectual and research traditions of the Lvov Polytechnic. 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 34 000 students study here under the guidance of 2 000 academic teachers, at the 15 faculties in Wroclaw, Jelenia Góra, Legnica, Walbrzych). It rates high in the annual rankings of Polish universities.

The excellent geographical location, teaching and research backup, and the developing infrastructure are the key assets of Lower Silesia, which have convinced international corporations to make investments here. Recently, the region has seen some spectacular enterprises by the global potentates of advanced technology. Projects by such companies, as Volvo, Toyota, Volkswagen, Whirlpool, WABCO, Siemens, and LG Philips, with the latter attracting two other partners – 3M and Toshiba, have been implemented in the recent years in Lower Silesia.
Crucial for attracting investors to the region is the research and scientific potential of the Wroclaw academic centre and the work on creating a knowledge-based economy. Wroclaw University of Technology, as the only technical university in the region, has become a leader of active co-operation with the industry. Collaboration with the economy allows to provide a comprehensive offer for companies looking for innovative solutions. Tens of long-term, many-sided collaboration agreements signed prove that this is the right approach to business partners.

These agreements cover a wide range of activities, from providing training for the employees of Lower Silesian companies to joint research aiming to introduce new technologies and products, and to increase the companies’ competitiveness on the Polish and international market. The network of accredited laboratories that is being organised will allow to enhance the offer for the industry. Each laboratory offers examinations of products introduced to the market for compliance with the “CE marking” requirements. Some of the laboratories have accreditations with a European authorisation.
