WUT is the oldest and the largest university of technology in Poland, established in 1826. Nowadays WUT is ranked as the best Polish university of technology distinguished by outstanding scientific and educational achievements. More than 32 000 students  and about 1200 Ph.D. students study at 19 Faculties and the College of Administration and Social Science. A guarantee of their success is the highly qualified staff – almost 2500 teachers (including nearly 570 Professors and Associate Professors) conduct research in almost all areas of technology and also some non-technical disciplines. Relevant facilities and equipment make it possible to carry out a wide scope of studies and also remain involved in many specializations of research. The university has 38 buildings for teaching and research activities, including 320 research and educational laboratories. An IT system and access to an extensive library included electronic database support students’ and academic staff’s activity. A new streamline of studies, introduced a few years ago, are the distance learning studies, conducted via the Internet. Similarly, Ph.D. studies run in the work-based learning mode will be launched in 2009/2010. These will be offered to the global candidates. To ensure the possibility of specializing and updating knowledge and skills, postgraduate courses are organized for those who already hold university degrees. WUT currently offers more than 90 of such programs. The programs particularly popular, are the MBA studies run by the WUT Business School. The WUT courses are organized according to the Bologna regulations – in a three-level system: first level courses – leading to a B.Sc. degree in engineering or an equivalent degree, second level courses – leading to an M.Sc. degree in engineering and other areas, and third level courses leading to a Ph.D. degree.
