The West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin is a public university officially established on 1 January 2009. Our university came into being as an effect of merging the University of Agriculture in Szczecin and Szczecin University of Technology. Both institutions were well-recognized academic centres and provided WPUT with experienced and professional staff as well as excellent teaching and laboratory base.
The creation of the West Pomeranian University of Technology consolidated research teams dealing with: engineering, environmental protection, renewable energy, bio- and nanotechnologies, polymers, economics and industry and agriculture technologies. WPUT has powers to confer the PhD degree and the degree of assistant professor in 14 fields. This is an enormous and precious potential which provides students with a proper preparation to their professional lives and the University itself with scientific development suitable for contemporary challenges.
In our educational offer we have bachelor, master, doctoral and post-graduate programmes delivered in 45 study areas in Polish and 4 in English at 11 faculties. The majority of programmes are taught in Polish, however we also have a vast offer of study options conducted in English.
