6 Cracow Technical University (CUT) The Tadeusz Kościuszko University of Technology in Cracow is a state higher university with over 60 years of tradition (founded in 1945).Tadeusz Kościuszko has been our patron for over 30 years.He was a national hero of both Poland and the United States of America, but he was also an engineer and a builder, responsible for the fortifications in Cracow and the West Point fort in the United States.His name is a reminder of our responsibility to respect tradition, the accomplishments of our academic forebears, reliability in giving access and promoting knowledge and openness towards new ideas.
7 Cracow Technical University (CUT) The Cracow Technical University (CUT) consists of 7 faculties with 22 courses of study and many specialties, 18,000 students including full-time, post-graduate and doctoral students and nearly 1,200 academic teachers.CUT also offers an a library with a large selection of printed and electronic collections, a state of the art multi-sport facility, inter-faculty scientific and didactic units, art galleries, student clubs, a choir, and student organizations and incubator for set-up business activityCUT has agreements with many scientific centers all over the world and is involved EU educational programs. As a result, it offers joint scientific studies, exchanges of students and academic teachers, as well as the possibility of obtaining additional certificates and diplomas.CTU’s collaboration with industry resulted in an active Technology Transfer Center located partialy in old CK jail.A Special Economic Zone - the Cracow Technological Park - was created by CTU It is a platform linking the Cracovian scientific world with modern technology.

15 About the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering Brief historyIn 1945 , Krakow had only one higher education institution with a Department of General Electrical Engineering: the AGH University of Science and Technology.In 1953 , this Department was moved to the Cracow University of Technology (CUT).In 1974, the Department grew to Electrical Engineering and Electronics Institute (IEiE). Upon the commencement of its activities, the institute comprised of two divisions: Industrial Electrical Engineering Division and Industrial Control Engineering Division.In 1975, CUT established its Faculty of Transport and incorporated into its structure the IEiE. In that same year, the University began offering programmes in electrical engineering.In 1988, the Faculty of Transport was transformed into the Faculty of Transport and Electrical Engineering, currently named the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering.Recent milestonesIn 1998, the Faculty was granted authority to award PhD degrees in electrical engineering.In 2002, the Faculty began participating in an inter-departmental computer science programme offering the opportunity to pursue an ICT systems specialisation.In 2004, the Faculty began participating in an inter-departmental power engineering programme offering the opportunity to pursue an electrical power engineering specialisation.
