Silesian University of Technology (SUT)
Gliwice, Poland



The Silesian University of Technology (SUT) is the oldest technical university in Upper Silesia and one of the largest in the country. It was established in 1945 as a scientific and educational facility for the most industrialised area in Poland, and one of the most industrialised in Europe. For over 75 years it has been an important institution of public life. It plays a significant cultural and opinion-forming role in the region.


The mission of the Silesian University of Technology, as a prestigious European technical university, is to conduct innovative scientific research and development works, as well as to educate highly qualified staff for the benefit of the knowledge-based society and economy, and to actively influence the development of the region and local communities. The university, through continuous improvement of processes and organisation, is a friendly and open place for work and development of the academic community.

Research University

The Silesian University of Technology is the only university in Silesia to be included in the prestigious group of 10 Polish universities, winners of the "Excellence Initiative-Research University" competition organised by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

Science and education

15 educational units of the University – 13 faculties and 2 institutes – currently offer more than 50 study programmes and about 200 specialisations, including the whole spectrum of engineering studies. Aside from technical programmes, candidates may also study business analytics, interior design, applied linguistics, mathematics, pre-school and early childhood pedagogy, sociology, management and project management. Nine faculties, the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Education and Communication Research are located in Gliwice, two faculties operate in Katowice and two in Zabrze, thanks to which the Silesian University of Technology covers a significant area of the Silesian Voivodship with its scientific and didactic influence.

Currently, SUT educates over 18,000 students. The University offers first-cycle studies (engineering and bachelor's degree), second-cycle studies - master's degree, education at doctoral school called "Joint Doctoral School" and postgraduate studies. Studies are conducted in full-time and part-time mode. Candidates have also the opportunity to access education in one of the nearly 30 study programmes in English.
