The biggest advantages of Cracow University of Technology (CUT) are: almost 80-year-old tradition of educating engineers, modernity and openness to change as well as hard work on the improvement of the Polish scientific and technical thought. Thanks to them CUT won a strong position and well established brand.


The origins of the Faculty of the result of the demand for highly qualified engineering staff for the rapidly developing region in the southern Polish chemical industry. In 1990 it was renamed the Department of Chemical Engineering and Technology which was highlighted by educating students and conducting scientific research on the broader chemical technology and chemical engineering.

Graduates of our Faculty are prepared to work with a technology and engineering, and scientific research in the wider chemical industry. During the studies familiar with the background technology of organic and inorganic chemistry, biotechnology, and chemical engineering. They learn about environmentally friendly non-waste energy- and material technologies, new solutions that reduce industry’s environmental impact, the technologies related with refining industry, production of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, household products, pesticides, materials for electronics, construction chemicals. In addition, technologies of polymers, methods of determination the properties, processing and recycling of plastics. Modern solutions in the field of biopolymers, synthesis of nanomaterials and catalysts. They gain knowledge of the biotechnological process engineering, environmental protection and energy generation from renewable sources. In addition, they have the opportunity to learn modern methods of physicochemical and physical measurements in chemical analysis.

We educate students on three areas: Chemical Technology, Chemical and Process Engineering and Biotechnology. In addition, we offer full MSc program in English within specialty of Innovative Chemical Technologies, and we are constantly expanding our offer of courses for MSc and BSc students in English.

We give our students the most durable capital in the labor market : knowledge

The Faculty has the right to confer doctoral degrees in technical sciences disciplines in the chemical technology and chemical engineering and chemical sciences in the discipline of chemistry. Since 1998, we educate doctoral students together with the Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, part of the International Doctoral Studies, and since 2006 also independently within the faculty, doctoral studies in the field of chemical engineering.
As of 28 March 2011. Department of Chemical Engineering and Technology Cracow University of Technology, the decision of the Central Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles, obtained the right to confer postdoctoral degree.

Cracow University of Technology comprises 8 faculties with 30 majors of study accredited by the Polish Accreditation Committee (12 degree programmes are given in English). Also the majors taught by the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Faculty of Architecture are accredited by the European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education. Moreover the major in Architecture is accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the major in Landscape Architecture earned the accreditation of the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) Europe. Cracow University of Technology was awarded the Logo Human Resources Excellence in Research by the European Commission.
Cooperation with many universities and scientific centres all over the world enables joint publications and research, exchange of students and academic teachers, as well as the possibility of obtaining additional certificates and double diplomas. Cooperation with industry is also well-developed, and a Technology Transfer Centre is active in the university. A Special Economic Zone – the Cracow Technological Park – was created in 1997 as a reply for a call from the university. It has since become a platform linking the Cracovian scientific world with modern technologies.
