70th Anniversary of the Silesian University of Technology
In 2015, we celebrated 70 years since the establishment of the Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice by the Bureau of National Council. Seven decades in the history of the university is the period of successive rectors and deans of various faculties, as well as professors, academics, administrative staff and, above all, crowds of students and graduates.
Without talent, creative work and commitment of a wide range of people we would not be able to create and develop one of the largest technical universities in the country. Today, Silesian University of Technology is a modern institution renowned in Polish and international scientific communities. 15 Faculties currently educate approx. 22 thousand students, who will soon join the engineering staff of companies operating not only in Upper Silesia, but also outside of the region. The graduates of the Silesian University of Technology are very successful both at home and abroad, taking employment in sectors of key importance to the knowledge-based economy.
Silesian University of Technology, as an important opinion-forming institution, from the very beginning was making a significant contribution to the economy of the region and the whole country, providing innovative solutions and improving the competitiveness of Polish companies.
70th Anniversary of our university was an excellent chance to summarize all of our activities in many fields. At the same time it provided an ideal opportunity to exchange opinions and discuss future challenges.
