DIT renews Memorandum of Understanding with Warsaw University of Technology

08 July 2014:   Professor Brian Norton, President of DIT, welcomed Professor Jan Szmidt,  President of Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) to DIT today.  During discussions, the two Presidents renewed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)  between DIT and WUT.  The two institutions have been strategic academic partners for over seven years.  Also present for the signing of the MOU were Professor Jerzy Banaszek, Dean of the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering, WUT and Dr Marek Rebow, Head of Research for the College of Engineering and Built Environment, DIT. 


Expanding upon the previously signed agreements, the renewed MOU will continue to facilitate mutually beneficial strategic collaboration between both academic institutions, which has already resulted with many academic projects, exchanges of researchers, PhD and undergraduate students, joint publications and co-supervision of PhD students.

Under the renewed MoU, the institutions have agreed to develop collaborative activities in academic areas of mutual interest, on a basis of equality and reciprocity, with a particular focus on exchange of students, academic staff, researchers and administrative staff, cooperation in the EU programme for education Erasmus+, including Joint Masters Degrees. Collaborative research projects, especially in the area of Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and technological Development, will also be prioritised.

Warsaw University of Technology is a research intense, doctoral level academic institution focused on undergraduate and graduate programs almost exclusively in engineering and applied sciences. With over thirty thousand students served by over two thousand professors and instructors, Warsaw University of Technology is the largest and the highest ranking engineering university in Poland. The origins of Politechnika Warszawska - Warsaw University of Technology - date back to 1826, the official commencement of educational programs in engineering in our institution. There are seventeen faculties covering almost all fields of engineering and applied science. Sixteen of these faculties are based on two urban campuses in the capital city of Warsaw, and one faculty in the ancient city of Plock in north-central Poland.
