Mar­iusz Gontar­czyk, Ph.D., MSc. Eng., Head of Depart­ment of Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion par­tic­i­pat­ed in the Euro­pean Mil­i­tary Acad­e­mies Com­man­dants Sem­i­nar held by Eston­ian Nation­al Defence Col­lege in Tar­tu.

The sub­ject mat­ter of the sem­i­nar was relat­ed to the expe­ri­ences and future coop­er­a­tion prospects between acad­e­mies includ­ing the exchange of mil­i­tary stu­dents. The par­tic­i­pants also empha­sized the role of stu­dent and research-teach­ing staff exchange in the cre­ation of the com­mon Euro­pean safe­ty and secu­ri­ty pol­i­cy. The rep­re­sen­ta­tives of mil­i­tary acad­e­mies who took part in the sem­i­nar were from: Esto­nia, Bul­gar­ia, the Czech Repub­lic, Ger­many, Greece, France, Italy, Latvia, Lithua­nia, Aus­tria, Poland, Por­tu­gal, Roma­nia, Fin­land, Swe­den, Great Britain.

Prof. Kurt Wüthrich – the Nobel laureate – at The Military University of Technology

On 20th June 2017 a Nobel prize win­ner – Prof. Kurt Wüthrich – gave a for­mal lec­ture on the dis­cov­er­ies relat­ed to chances of use exten­sion of mag­net­ic res­o­nance. The speech was made as part of the ini­tia­tive of Under­sec­re­tary of State from Min­istry of Nation­al Defence and it per­fect­ly fit into the idea of pro­mot­ing Pol­ish mil­i­tary acad­e­mies inter­na­tion­al­ly. After the lec­ture, the Nobelist became famil­iar with the lat­est inven­tions of MUT sci­en­tists and he also vis­it­ed the lab­o­ra­to­ries of The Fac­ul­ty of Advanced Tech­nolo­gies and Chem­istry and The Cen­tre of Bio­med­ical Engi­neer­ing at The Insti­tute of Opto­elec­tron­ics. Prof. Wüthrich’s stay was under the coor­di­na­tion of The MUT’s Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment.

Military University of Technology at the world military academies symposium

Between 28th May and 1st June the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy par­tic­i­pat­ed in the world mil­i­tary acad­e­mies sym­po­sium “Inter­na­tion­al Sym­po­sium on Devel­op­ment of Mil­i­tary Acad­e­mies” which took place in Mil­i­tary Col­lege Saint-Jean in Cana­da. MUT was rep­re­sent­ed by Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng. and Head of the Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment of MUT Col. Mar­iusz Gontar­czyk, PhD, Eng.

The sym­po­sium was orga­nized joint­ly by the Roy­al Mil­i­tary Col­lege Saint-Jean and the Mil­i­tary Acad­e­my from South Korea which was the cre­ator of this unique sym­po­sium ini­tia­tive held for the sixth time. The sym­po­sium fea­tured the achieve­ments and expe­ri­ences pre­sent­ed by the par­tic­i­pants – rep­re­sen­ta­tives of mil­i­tary acad­e­mies and uni­ver­si­ties from all over the world and orga­ni­za­tions engaged in edu­ca­tion and train­ing of future offi­cers. The par­tic­i­pants also dis­cussed the chal­lenges fac­ing the edu­ca­tion of future offi­cers. The respec­tive pan­els includ­ed the intel­lec­tu­al devel­op­ment in mil­i­tary uni­ver­si­ties, the impor­tance of teach­ing lan­guages, stu­dent exchange and competencies/cooperation between mil­i­tary uni­ver­si­ties.

The MUT rep­re­sen­ta­tives, in the work of the intel­lec­tu­al devel­op­ment pan­el, pre­sent­ed the spe­cif­ic nature of edu­cat­ing can­di­dates for future sol­diers in terms of mil­i­tary tech­nol­o­gy and intro­duced the struc­ture and poten­tial of MUT.

The meet­ing was an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to estab­lish lots of rela­tions with uni­ver­si­ties inter­est­ed in stu­dent and lec­tur­er exchange. Mil­i­tary Col­lege Saint-Jean in Cana­da host­ed the fol­low­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives from: Aus­tria, Bel­gium, Cana­da, Chi­na, Colum­bia, Ecuador, France, Ger­many, Ire­land, Italy, Lebanon, Peru, Qatar, South Korea, Spain, Swe­den, Tunisia and the USA.

Nobel Prize winner at Military University of Technology

The genius physi­cist Prof. Shu­ji Naka­mu­ra  vis­it­ed the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy. This world-famous sci­en­tist, who received the Nobel Prize in Physics for the inven­tion of effi­cient LED emit­ting blue light, deliv­ered a speech on his inven­tion dur­ing the lec­ture on 9th May 2017.

The lec­ture “The Inven­tion of High Effi­cient Blue LED and Future Sol­id State Light­ing” aroused great inter­est and enthu­si­asm among Pol­ish sci­en­tists and stu­dents of MUT. In the MUT cin­e­ma hall there were sev­er­al hun­dred peo­ple. The meet­ing was hon­oured by the pres­ence of Under­sec­re­tary of State in the Min­istry of Nation­al Defence Woj­ciech Fałkows­ki, Ph.D., Assoc.
