Founded in 1951, the Military University of Technology (MUT) in Warsaw, Poland is one of the largest scientific and technological universities and a leading research centre in Poland.
In the academic year 2018/19, over eight thousand civilian and military students have studied first-cycle studies (engineering and bachelor’s degree), second cycle studies (master’s degree), and third-cycle studies (doctoral degree). Courses at MUT are taught by highly qualified academic staff, composed of over 800 teachers, including 89 professors, 124 habilitated doctors and 470 doctors.
The level and opportunities of studies at the MUT are addressed not only to Polish candidates but also for foreign students. MUT, as a recognized and highly reputable polytechnic university, cooperates with numerous universities, institutions, and research centres in Poland and abroad. Our most talented students pursue studies and internships outside of Poland, using national and European Community initiatives, including educational programs that expand European cooperation in the field of education and scholarship programs, which enable the exchange and education of young scientists. In 2016 – 2018, more than 1702 students, including Ph.D. students and scientists of the MUT, studied abroad, taking part in academic exchange programs, scientific projects, training, and conferences. During the same period, 1485 foreign students and scientists have visited MUT.
In order to meet the expectations of students, MUT has executed an increasing number of reciprocal agreements with foreign universities. Currently, 11 agreements are in force with universities from Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Greece, France, Romania, Slovakia, and Hungary.
MUT is also an important research centre in Poland, encompassing comprehensive research, implementation, and modernization of technologies, chemistry, physics, economics, and military applications. The construction of the first Polish laser and one of the first computers in the country were developed by scientists at MUT. The University also cooperates with institutes from over 20 countries, including Great Britain, France, Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, South Korea, and the USA. Much of the intellectual potential of MUT is involved in solving technical problems for the benefit of the national economy and is widely used in environmental protection, medicine, and industry.
The achievements of MUT in research and scientific activity are confirmed by prestigious state and foreign awards, prizes, and awards from the Ministry of Science, awards from the Polish Academy of Sciences, and more than 1,000 patents and protection rights, including 60 issued by foreign governments. The results of MUT research, presented at many national and foreign exhibitions, verified by international competition, have gained recognition in the world, and are awarded medals and other prestigious awards.
