Cracow University of Technology (CUT) received the decisions of the Ministry of Education and Science regarding the evaluation of scientific activity in eight disciplines practiced at the university.




The results clearly indicate a very high level of scientific activity conducted at CUT. In seven (out of eight assessed) disciplines such as: Architecture and Urban Planning; Automation, Electronics and Electrical Engineering; Chemical Engineering; Civil Engineering and Transport; Materials Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; Environmental Engineering, Mining and Power Engineering, the university was awarded the A scientific category, and in the discipline of Information Technology and Telecommunications the B+ category. The high scientific categories achieved by Cracow University of Technology made our university look outstanding compared to other Polish technical universities where the same scientific disciplines are practiced.


Evaluation, i.e. evaluation of the achievements and achievements of researchers at universities and research institutes, takes place every few years. In the recently completed evaluation for the years 2017-2021, an independent expert body assessed the quality of scientific activity within the disciplines of science, practiced by a given entity. On this basis, the Minister of Education and Science awarded the following categories to scientific disciplines at universities: A+, A, B+, B or C. The assessment took into account scientific publications in prestigious journals and publishing houses, patents obtained, ongoing scientific projects, as well as financial effects of research and its impact on society and economy.
