Our University is a modern European technical university, operating in the EURECA-PRO network of European universities in the field of sustainable production and consumption. The university also belongs to the prestigious group of 10 Polish universities – winners of the competition “Initiative of Excellence – Research University”. We offer business cooperation to the socio-economic environment in 12 scientific disciplines, which are closely related to the 6 Priority Research Areas developed by the University. These include Computational Oncology and Personalized Medicine; Artificial Intelligence and Data Processing; Materials of the Future; Smart Cities and Mobility of the Future; Process Automation and Industry 4.0 as well as Climate and Environment Protection, Modern Energy. Innovation and transfer of new technologies are essential in the knowledge-based economy, which is why we create an innovation ecosystem, where new ideas are not only born but also become reality. The knowledge-based economy requires scientific research and the transfer of new technologies to industry.

The future is here

The University provides education in nearly 60 fields of study (including almost 30 in English). In addition to academic knowledge, students gain valuable work experience, and part of the education is carried out in the form of Project Based Learning, developing specific solutions in interdisciplinary groups, which broadens their horizons. The University cares for the professional future of its students through close cooperation with many Polish and foreign companies, as well as through dual training. The most talented students can spread their wings in the mentoring program, while doctoral students can conduct research in cooperation with industry by solving specific business problems.

Aim high

Those curious about the world can take advantage of the Summer and Winter School, a project that allows them to spend their summer vacation at a foreign university. For those interested in a longer stay abroad, Erasmus and Erasmus Plus programs are available. Our students can also obtain a double diploma with selected universities in Europe, and those willing to travel overseas should be interested in an interdisciplinary semester project that the Silesian University of Technology runs with Stanford University in the United States.
