Technical University of Szczecin (Poland)


The history of the Technical University of Szczecin goes back to December 1946. It was then that the School of Engineering, with the Faculties of Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, was established. The Faculty of Chemical Engineering was opened in the following academic year and the Faculty of Engineering and Economics of Transport in 1955. On September 3rd 1955 the School of Engineering acquired the status of a Technical University. In 1985 the newly established University of Szczecin took over the Faculty of Engineering and Economics of Transport.
