Łódź University of Technology

Lodz University of Technology politechnikalodzka1

The Lodz University of Technology came into existence in 1945, initially with 3 Faculties of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Chemistry. Together with its development new faculties were established, up to the present number of 9 faculties, 70 institutes and departments and 120 specializations. In 1992 the International Faculty of Engineering was set up with English and French as its languages of instruction. TUL offers a possibility of obtaining the following degrees: Bachelor of Art, Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctorate of Philosophy. There are 20 000 students  and approximately 3 000 staff members at the University. In 2002 a large, fully computerised library was opened. There are dormitories, canteens, a cinema, sports teams, Radio Żak broadcasting throughout the region and managed entirely by students, galleries? Within the campus area there are student clubs, two bank branches, a travel agency, a post office, cafés? Apart from the Student Committee plenty of other student organizations operate here as well. Undoubtedly each student can find here appropriate conditions for development, education and entertainment.


ECTS Label for Lodz University of Technology

Lodz University of Technology  has been awarded by the European Commission(DG Education and Culture) ECTS label, in recognition of our quality in internationalisation procedures connected with the application of the European Credits Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). We are the only holder of this respective Label in Poland and one of 28 holders in Europe. We take pride in this fact hoping it will lead to further improvement of the quality  of education offered at our University and it will attract even more students, both from Poland and abroad.

As foreign books are expensive in Poland, you can always go to the university library to borrow some. Any registered student (with the special library ID card) may use the institute, faculty and main library. At TUL Main Library computer-based system has been installed to handle library procedures Photocopying machines are widely available at the university, in libraries and in many other places in the city. 

Computer network
TUL has an extensive computer network that provides gateways to both national and international networks. It interconnects all the university units as well as halls of residence.
Free of charge access to computers connected to the Internet is available at many faculties - if not sure, ask your supervisor or any student. A number of computers for students' usage is also available at the Main Library.
In every hall of residence there is a broadband (LAN) network connection with access to the Internet available at a nominal price (paid on a biannual basis). The network administrator (who is a member of the Resident Council) of each hall of residence is responsible for connecting new users.
