WHAT WE OFFER
Due to its strategic position in Europe, Poland has always been regarded as the gateway to the East. Warsaw is host to thousands of foreign companies doing business in Poland and many international institutions coordinating economic and scientific cooperation between, on the one hand, the European Union and USA and on the other, Central and Eastern European countries. This unique situation has created a high demand for well-qualified engineers fluent in English.
The Warsaw University of Technology is the highest-ranked institution for advanced engineering education and research in Poland and one of the most prestigious academic institutions in Europe. The curricula and academic standards closely resemble those of many highly regarded U.S. universities. The low ratio of students to professors at Warsaw University of Technology’s Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science and the warm working relationship between students and instructors helps those studying to develop confidence in their ability to make significant contributions to engineering and research work.
The Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science offers the courses in Mathematics and Computer Science in Polish.
The following programs are taught in English:
- 3.5-year undergraduate programme in Computer Science leading to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree. Studies start every year – in October.
- 1.5-year graduate programme in Computer Science leading to a Master of Science degree. Studies start every half year – in October or in February.
- 2-year graduate programme in Computer Science leading to a Master of Science degree. Studies start every year – in October.
Graduate programmes exist in the following fields:
- Artificial Intelligence,
- Business Intelligence Systems Development (recruitment suspended).
In each of the above three specializations there are general lectures on modern databases, foundations of Artificial Intelligence, Windows programming, operating systems, computer network administration as well as several courses particular to the area of specialization. Each year, depending on the number of candidates, one or two programmes commence, depending on students’ preferences.
Students graduating in studies taught in the English language will receive their diplomas in the Polish language and a translation into English where:
- the Polish professional degree of an engineer is translated as a Bachelor of Science in Engineering,
- the Polish professional degree of a master is translated as a Master of Science.
The programs taught in English follow an English/American pattern and lead to a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree in 3.5 years and a Master of Science degree in a further two years. The duration and extent of the programmes are defined by a system of credits. Credits are obtained on the basis of teaching results and are attained by a grade which is based on the semester workload and/or oral/written examinations. A student is supposed to study 30 credit points per semester (60 credits per academic year). The Bachelor’s degree programmes total 210 credits over seven semesters. To proceed from one year to the next, students have to obtain a certain minimum amount of credits defined by the Faculty Council. On successful completion of the final semester, final thesis and on passing the diploma examination students will be granted a B.Sc. degree. The Master’s degree programs total 120 credits over four semesters (two years) or 90 credits over 3 semesters.
