Warsaw University of Technology is the largest technical university in Poland and it is the highest-ranked institution for advanced engineering education and research. Our students attend classes at the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology, which is the largest teaching and research center at the university. Its educational and research activities cover almost the whole spectrum of electrical and computer engineering – from micro and optoelectronics, through instrumentation, measurement, control and robotics, to computer networks and telecommunications. The programs of studies and academic regulations at the faculty resemble those of highly reputed U.S. universities. In addition, the faculty is known to attain the highest teaching standards and enjoys worldwide recognition for its research.
With a population of more 1.7 million people, Warsaw is an ideal location for those of you who like the big city life. It became the country’s capital in 1596 when King Zygmunt III moved the royal residence there from Krakow. Since then Warsaw has witnessed many hardships (it was almost completely destroyed during WW II), but it has emerged as a cosmopolitan city and the business center of the country. Here you can find modern architecture juxtaposed with carefully-restored palaces and castles. The city boasts a beautiful Old Town and many theaters, museums, monuments, restaurants, and parks. And since it is home to a number of large universities, there are plenty of college students to meet and socialize with.
Courses & Descriptions:
You can choose from a wide range of courses in electrical and computer engineering. All courses are taught in English and most are 60 hours (4 semester credits). You can take 4 to 6 classes a semester. The university also offers an optional Polish language course for 2 or 4 semester credits (depending on the intensity).
Warsaw University of Technology is a university fully accredited by the Polish Ministry of Education. Most colleges and universities allow you to transfer credit from courses taken abroad. Before applying it’s important to speak with the study abroad advisor at your home institution to obtain pre-approval for your courses and determine how many credits you’ll receive. Every educational institution has different policies about transferring credit, so we encourage you to follow your institution’s regulations. Usually the number of credits that you receive depends on the number of teaching hours. Following the American system, we suggest awarding 1 semester credit for every 15 hours of class time or 1 quarter credit for every 10 hours of class time.
After completing the program, we’ll send your registrar or study abroad advisor an official transcript with the course titles, course hours, and grades. Your university will need this transcript to transfer credit.
It is possible to transfer your financial aid to pay for some or all of the program costs. The first step is to check with your home institution’s financial aid advisor before applying. Since every home institution has different rules, only your advisor can tell you what kind of aid can transfer. Study Abroad Poland is happy to provide you with a certificate of enrollment or any other documents that your university might require.
