SUT - Silesian University of Technology

PolslSUT (Silesian University of Technology) was founded in 1945 and is regularly ranked as one of the most prestigious technical universities in Poland. It is the largest and the oldest technical university in the region of Silesia, which is the most industrialised region of Poland.

15 educational units of the University – 13 faculties and 2 institutes – currently offer more than 50 study programmes and about 200 specialisations, including the whole spectrum of engineering studies. Aside from technical programmes, candidates may also study business analytics, interior design, applied linguistics, mathematics, pre-school and early childhood pedagogy, sociology, management and project management. Nine faculties, the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Education and Communication Research are located in Gliwice, two faculties operate in Katowice and two in Zabrze, thanks to which the Silesian University of Technology covers a significant area of the Silesian Voivodship with its scientific and didactic influence. Currently, SUT educates over 18,000 students. The University offers first-cycle studies (engineering and bachelor's degree), second-cycle studies - master's degree, education at doctoral school called "Joint Doctoral School" and postgraduate studies. Studies are conducted in full-time and part-time mode. Candidates have also the opportunity to access education in one of the nearly 30 study programmes in English.

The SUT actively applies European standards for higher education and collaborates with scientific organisations in both the European Union and abroad. The SUT has been awarded the HR Excellence in Research Logo by the European Commission, which verifies the best working conditions for employed researchers. This means that the SUT ensures the transparency of its recruitment processes and fair work conditions in accordance with the guidelines of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. This year SUT has been included in the prestigious group of Excellence Initiative - Research University. The group includes the top 10 best research universities in Poland and proposed Twinning project will give a strong support to the SUT on achieving the objectives of this program and on developing of SUT’s priority research areas.

The CoBotAGV project is headed by the SUT’s Faculty of Automatic Control, Electronics and Computer Science (AEI), which employs over 200 professors, assistants and lecturers. The Faculty carries out research in the following disciplines: automatic control,  electronics, informatics, biotechnology and biocybernetics. The Faculty has an active cooperation with 90 foreign universities and research institutes and also with almost one hundred Polish enterprises. Strengthening its cooperation with Top European Universities is one of the main goals of the AEI Faculty. Two EU co-financed projects that focus on ESRs (Early Stage Researcher) training: AIDA – “PhD Studies in Applied Integrative Data Analysis” and CyPhiS – “Interdisciplinary doctoral studies in the field of cyber physical systems” began in 2018. The scientific scope of both projects overlaps with the project’s research area. Professor Joanna Polańska, who is the manager of AIDA and the coordinator of scientific cooperation for the AEI Faculty will lead WP3 – ESR Training work package that will enable the synergy of the cooperation between projects to be maximised.
