Welcome to Cracow University of Technology!
Cracow University of Technology (CUT) has been training engineering staff for more than seventy years. Graduates of our university are highly valued in the labour market, which is reflected in the fact that among all Polish universities Cracow University of Technology took first place in the ranking of employers in 2008. This is no doubt thanks to the alumni, but also it is a proof that the majors offered by our university are attractive and relevant to labour market needs and the education of generations of engineers is of high quality.
Current educational offer of Cracow University of Technology includes 29 majors of undergraduate and graduate programmes, which are conducted at 7 faculties of the university. Such a wide range of choice means variety of intellectual exploration and ability to solve challenging tasks under the supervision of well qualified teaching staff, both within the framework of mandatory classes, as well as in 80 scientific student associations operating at our university. Among more than 1,200 teachers, you can meet many outstanding professionals who participate in intercollegiate research teams, both domestic and international. Their expertise and knowledge allow our university to maintain the appropriate position in Poland and in the international scientific community. Thanks to international contacts of CUT faculty, our students have the possibility of participating in exchange programmes abroad on the basis of agreements signed by Cracow University of Technology with universities around the world. Experience gained this way is extremely valuable from the point of view of a young man/woman who start their career. It should also be noted that 9 of our majors were contracted by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education in the academic year 2012/2013.

I am also convinced that you will appreciate our social and sports facilities which belong to the most modern and sophisticated of all Cracow universities and technical universities in Poland.
Students and alumni of our university can also count on help of CUT Career Services in setting their career paths and job search.
