The Cracow University of Technology was established in 1945 and became an independent entity in 1954. It was named after Tadeusz Kociuszko, the hero of Polish and American nations, a politician but also a civil engineer. The Cracow University of Technology is the best university in Poland according the magazine Newsweek Poland, 2008! Our University is composed of 7 faculties: Architecture (The only Polish department accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects), Applied Physics and Computer Modelling, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Technology, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. International Centre of Education at CUT prepares foreign students intending to study in Polish at Polish universities with special emphasis on technical studies. The Cracow University of Technology is strongly involved in international cooperation over 200 bilateral agreements on academic exchange with foreign universities are signed. Apart from active and fruitful co-operation with universities from EU countries within ERASMUS programme, CUT sends and hosts students and academic teachers on exchange programmes with the USA, Japan, Mexico, Australia and Tajwan, Korea. More details can be found on our website www.bwm.pk.edu.pl Read our international students´ comments on studies at our University and living in Krakow: Sarah Lindsay & Joshua Crossin (University of Tasmania, Australia) "We have found Krakow to be the perfect city for any student who wants to experience a European lifestyle, culture and history. We believe we made the right decision in coming to Cracow University of Technology, living in central Europe made it possible for us to travel to more countries than we ever would have imagined during our exchange semester. The professors that we have been working with throughout the semester have given us a great insight into the architecture of Poland and greater Europe. The relationship between professors and students is unique because of the smaller class sizes. We have found this to be very positive for our learning experience." Sveta Lana Sorin (University of Tennessee, U.S.A.) "Studying in Krakow is one of the best things I have ever done. Living and studying in a historical city is wonderful for my education. The city center is unlike any that I have experienced. The culture is very unique and teaches me about European life. Before arriving in Krakow I would tell students to get excited! Bring a good camera with a lot of memory because you will take thousands of pictures. Cracow University of Technology is close to the center. The teachers are smart and help you excel in the design process. The nightlife of Krakow is unbelievable. Have fun!"
