1 Wrocław 2011 Wrocław University of Technology yesterday – today - tomorrow

2 Wrocław University of Technology Today’s Wrocław 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 Lv i v Polytechnic. The university has been functioning under the current name since 1945. It was established and organised by researchers from Lv i v 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 32 000 students study here under the guidance of 2 000 academic teachers, at the 12 faculties and the Department of Fundamental Studies of Technology, as well as in the 4 regional branches.
