Faculty of Civil Engineering - History
The Silesian University of Technology is one of the few universities in Poland that offer the possibility of studying in English in the field of Civil Engineering. The Structural Engineering major was established in 2005 as a response to growing needs of the international building companies present on the Polish market, as well as the increase of foreign students exchange.
The Civil Engineering course in English was pioneer on the national scale, with the curriculum created in cooperation with other technical universities, under the patronage of the EUCEET organization, where the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Silesian University of Technology played one of the leading roles. The exchange of experience gave the possibility to create modern, compact and universal curriculum, adjusted from the beginning to the requirements of the Bologna Process.
Until recently, the Silesian University of Technology was the only university in Poland which offered the possibility of free studies on the Civil Engineering major in English. Despite the fact, that similar courses started appearing on other universities, SUT still plays a leading role in this respect.
The Faculty does not stop on its way to improve the quality of the Civil Engineering course in English. Nowadays, almost one fourth of our students are foreign exchange students.
