Gdansk University of Technology
Gdansk U of Technology Campus
One of Poland's oldest and most beautiful cities, Gdansk has a history going back a thousand years.  It has an important place in Polish consciousness as the location of the start of World War II and where the fall of communism in Central Europe began. The city has nearly 500,000 inhabitants and is one of the largest business, economic, cultural and scientific centers in Poland.  Gdansk’s Old Town, reconstructed after being leveled during World War II, is a bonus for a student studying at Gdansk University of Technology.

Gdansk University of Technology, founded in 1904, is the largest technical university in the Pomeranian Region and one of the oldest technical universities in Poland. Gdansk has nine faculties with 41 fields of study and more than 26,000 undergraduate students. Gdansk is the first and only Polish university to be a member of the CDIO Initiative, providing industrial-oriented education for engineers.

-          Electronics, Telecomm and Informatics

-          Control Engineering and Robotics

-          Electrical and Control Engineering

-          Civil and Environmental Engineering
