Skills are merely a vain invention, just a folly of the brain
or idle fun so long as they are not used for the benefit of nations.
Stanisław Staszic (1755-1826)
Founder of Technical Education in Poland
On 15 November 1915, Warsaw University of Technology began teaching independently as the first
Polish technical university. However, its traditions go back much further. For almost 190 years, the
University has been educating generations of engineers, thereby making a vital contribution to the
technical sciences.
In 2015 Warsaw University of Technology is celebrating 100 years of the its Revival.
Chosen for a four-year term of office, the Rectors oversee the fulfilment of the Mission
of Warsaw University of Technology, an important assumption of which is adaptation
of the education process and scientific research to the vision of the society of the future.
