10th Anniversary of Military Erasmus

Graph­ic design com­pe­ti­tion (won by an MUT stu­dent), marathon race along the his­tor­i­cal route Marathon-Athens, famous trireme row­ing, a series of his­to­ry lec­tures and 40th jubilee ses­sion of the Imple­men­ta­tion Group for the “Euro­pean Ini­tia­tive for the exchange of young offi­cers inspired by Eras­mus” were the main points on the agen­da for the cel­e­bra­tion of the 10th anniver­sary of so-called Mil­i­tary Eras­mus which was held in Athens between 9 and 12 Novem­ber.

More than 100 mil­i­tary stu­dents, acad­e­my com­man­dants and mem­bers of almost 20 coun­tries rep­re­sent­ing near­ly 30 mil­i­tary acad­e­mies (includ­ing MUT) par­tic­i­pat­ed in this glam­ourous jubilee.

Pri­or to the depar­ture for Athens, the MUT cadets were farewelled by the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król, DSc and the Head of the Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion Cen­tre Sat­urnin Przy­byl­s­ki, Ph.D. Hav­ing giv­en the stu­dents MUT T‑shirts in the nation­al colours, the Vice-Rec­tor wished them suc­cess while com­pet­ing.

The orga­niz­ers of the event – three Greek mil­i­tary acad­e­mies: Hel­lenic Army Acad­e­my, Hel­lenic Naval Acad­e­my and Hel­lenic Air Force Acad­e­my offered lots of attrac­tions for each par­tic­i­pant.

The first two days involved the cer­e­mo­ni­al wel­come of the cadets, com­man­dants’ speech­es and lec­tures the­mat­i­cal­ly relat­ed to the his­to­ry of ancient Greece. The sched­ule also includ­ed the sight­see­ing of his­toric sites, the muse­um of mil­i­tary avi­a­tion and the respec­tive acad­e­mies locat­ed in close prox­im­i­ty to Athens.

The next two days – Sat­ur­day and Sun­day – were devot­ed to the sports strug­gles. On Sat­ur­day the stu­dents, their atten­dants and invit­ed guests had a tremen­dous oppor­tu­ni­ty to try their best at row­ing for over an hour in the famous ren­o­vat­ed trireme – an ancient Greek naval craft equipped with three rows of pad­dles and the crew of over one hun­dred and fifty.

The cli­max of the cer­e­mo­ny com­mem­o­rat­ing the 10th anniver­sary of the ini­tia­tive, on Sun­day 11th Novem­ber, was the par­tic­i­pa­tion in the marathon race along the tra­di­tion­al route from Marathon to Athens which is a dream for each sportsper­son, espe­cial­ly on such a great day as the 100th anniver­sary of regain­ing inde­pen­dence by Poland. Dur­ing the entire route there were white and red colours of T‑shirts includ­ing six com­peti­tors from MUT “It was one of the most chal­leng­ing marathon routes, over 42 kilo­me­ters in the blaz­ing sun and the ini­tial 32 kilo­me­ters prac­ti­cal­ly uphill with ver­ti­cal dif­fer­ence of over 200 meters” – Announced Capt. Kurek from MUT’s Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion Cen­tre.

Dur­ing the whole event it was the logo and the poster which attract­ed a great atten­tion and they were designed by the win­ner of graph­ic design com­pe­ti­tion at the Euro­pean lev­el cdt. Prze­mysław Kobi­ał­ka from the Fac­ul­ty of  Civ­il Engi­neer­ing and Geo­desy of MUT. The poster for this event was a place near which the par­tic­i­pants took com­mem­o­ra­tive pho­tos most often. On the last day of stay cdt. Kobiałka’s project was award­ed by the com­man­dant of Hel­lenic Air Force Acad­e­my. Among the dis­tin­guished there were also win­ners of the marathon race in the cat­e­go­ry of mil­i­tary stu­dents.

Military Academies Commandants Seminar in Theresian Military Academy

What are the major chal­lenges that the mil­i­tary acad­e­mies face and what can be done in order to facil­i­tate the cadet exchange? These issues were the sub­ject mat­ter of work­shops orga­nized as the part of Euro­pean Mil­i­tary Acad­e­mies Com­man­dants Sem­i­nar which took place between 24 and 25 Octo­ber at the premis­es of There­sian Mil­i­tary Acad­e­my in Wien­ner Neustadt, Aus­tria.

The MUT rep­re­sen­ta­tives who attend­ed the sem­i­nar were: Col. Artur Król, DSc, Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs and Col. Mar­iusz Gontar­czyk, PhD, Head of the Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment. The ini­tia­tive of these meet­ings orig­i­nat­ed in 2009 and the sem­i­nars are tra­di­tion­al­ly held by coun­tries which cur­rent­ly ful­fil the pres­i­den­cy func­tion in the Euro­pean Union.

“It is worth men­tion­ing that all of the par­tic­i­pants agreed upon the need to sum­mon such meet­ings. Only the direct con­tact and bilat­er­al exchange of views on the dif­fer­ences which exist between edu­ca­tion­al sys­tems and, also, an attempt to find com­mon solu­tions can improve the process of stu­dent and scientific/teaching staff exchange in the future” –  Col. Król explained.

This year, the record num­ber of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from mil­i­tary acad­e­mies par­tic­i­pat­ed in the event was not­ed. The atten­dees rep­re­sent­ed 35 acad­e­mies from 19 EU coun­tries – Aus­tria, Esto­nia, Bel­gium, Bul­gar­ia, Ger­many, Greece, Spain, the Nether­lands, Fin­land, France, Italy, Latvia, Lithua­nia, Poland, Por­tu­gal, Roma­nia, Slove­nia, Swe­den, Hun­gary and a mem­ber of Euro­pean Secu­ri­ty and Defence Col­lege.

The Swedish National Defence University delegation at MUT

24 rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Swedish Nation­al Defence Uni­ver­si­ty Board from Stock­holm, Swe­den vis­it­ed the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy on 10th Octo­ber. It was a tremen­dous oppor­tu­ni­ty to ini­ti­ate the pos­si­bil­i­ty of future coop­er­a­tion between the two mil­i­tary uni­ver­si­ties and to cre­ate the offer of exchange for MUT cadets and aca­d­e­m­ic teach­ers abroad.

While stay­ing at MUT, the Swedish uni­ver­si­ty was rep­re­sent­ed by the Chair­man of the Board Peter Egardt. There were also the Chan­cel­lor of the uni­ver­si­ty, aca­d­e­m­ic work­ers, sol­diers and stu­dents includ­ed in the Board. The host of the whole event was the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng. and the vis­it was coor­di­nat­ed by the Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment of MUT. Dur­ing the meet­ing in the MUT Sen­ate Hall there were also rep­re­sen­ta­tives of basic orga­ni­za­tion­al units of our uni­ver­si­ty.

In the Sen­ate Hall Col. Artur Król, made the pre­sen­ta­tion con­cern­ing the his­to­ry, struc­ture func­tion­ing and ben­e­fits of MUT. It pro­vid­ed a favor­able oppor­tu­ni­ty to ask ques­tions by the guests and to present the advan­tages of their uni­ver­si­ty. Con­se­quent­ly, a dis­cus­sion began on the pos­si­bil­i­ty of aca­d­e­m­ic work between uni­ver­si­ties and the stu­dent exchange offer on the Eras­mus+ basis.

Dur­ing the vis­it of the Swedish del­e­ga­tion at MUT the guests man­aged to admire the select­ed lab­o­ra­to­ries. At the end of their stay at MUT the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Swedish Nation­al Defence Uni­ver­si­ty also saw the Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion Cen­tre sports facil­i­ties. The head of the cen­tre Sat­urnin Przy­byl­s­ki, Ph.D. intro­duced to the guests the PE teach­ing cur­ricu­lum and the require­ments the stu­dents need to ful­fil in order to be com­mis­sioned. The vis­it end­ed with the dec­la­ra­tion of the Chair­man of the Board Peter Egardt and the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król of the neces­si­ty to begin coop­er­a­tion on an sci­en­tif­ic and edu­ca­tion­al lev­el between the uni­ver­si­ties.

XXX edition of „Standardization within NATO” course

Between 24th and 28th Sep­tem­ber 2018 the XXX edi­tion of an inter­na­tion­al course “Stan­dard­iza­tion with­in NATO” took place at the Fac­ul­ty of Logis­tics at MUT. The course itself was opened by Dean of Fac­ul­ty of Logis­tics Col. Szy­mon Mitkow, DSc, Assoc. Prof. and the spe­cial guest of the event was the head of NATO Stan­dard­iza­tion Office Brig. Gen. Zoltán Gulyás, direc­tor (DNSO).

Dur­ing the open­ing cer­e­mo­ny the head Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment o MUT Col. Mar­iusz Gontar­czyk, Ph.D., MSc. Eng. famil­iar­ized the par­tic­i­pants with the struc­ture of Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy and the scope of its activ­i­ty. Col. Szy­mon Mitkow, Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. pre­sent­ed the Fac­ul­ty of Logis­tics and intro­duced the his­to­ry of the course.

The Direc­tor of NATO Stan­dard­iza­tion Office Brig. Gen. Zoltán Gulyás, (DNSO) men­tioned the need for enhanc­ing the knowl­edge on stan­dard­iza­tion and the chal­lenges the NATO Stan­dard­iza­tion Office (NSO) faces from the NATO point of view. The meet­ing end­ed with sign­ing an agree­ment between MUT and NSO in terms of the pro­mo­tion of stan­dard­iza­tion knowl­edge through the joint course orga­ni­za­tion.

The course fin­ished on 28th Sep­tem­ber with the cer­e­mo­ny dur­ing which the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng. hand­ed in the cer­tifi­cates.

The continuation of Polish and Bulgarian cooperation

On the 13th Sep­tem­ber the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Vas­sil Lev­s­ki Nation­al Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty from Bul­gar­ia vis­it­ed the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy once again.

While stay­ing at MUT, the biggest Bul­gar­i­an mil­i­tary uni­ver­si­ty was rep­re­sent­ed by: Rec­tor-Com­man­dant Brig. Gen. Pla­men Nikolov Bog­danov, Ph.D., Vice-Rec­tor for Avi­a­tion Colonel Ivay­lo Atanasov Angelov and Yavor Tsve­tanov Var­banov, an Eng­lish teacher. The host of the whole vis­it was the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng. He was accom­pa­nied by the deputy dean of The Fac­ul­ty of Mecha­tron­ics and Aero­space Col. Prze­mysław Kupidu­ra, DSc, Eng., Head of Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment of MUT Col. Mar­iusz Gontar­czyk, Ph.D., MSc. Eng. and the coor­di­na­tor of MUT Eras­mus+ pro­gramme Karol Wilk, M.A.

The dis­cus­sion was cen­tered on the pos­si­bil­i­ty of edu­ca­tion­al coop­er­a­tion between MUT and VLNMU and the con­tin­u­a­tion of the stu­dent exchange with­in the Eras­mus+ pro­gramme. What is more, the joint activ­i­ties from the recent coop­er­a­tion peri­od were also dis­cussed. In terms of the coop­er­a­tion that was launched last year, the Bul­gar­i­an cadets par­tic­i­pat­ed in the Multi­na­tion­al Sports and Shoot­ing Games that were held in May 2018 at MUT, the Pol­ish cadets were, in turn, invit­ed to take part in the unmanned aer­i­al vehi­cle com­pe­ti­tion orga­nized by The Fac­ul­ty of Avi­a­tion at VLNMU. The first stu­dent exchange also took place – five cadets from Vas­sil Lev­s­ki stayed at MUT in July and August to take part in the prac­tice at the Fac­ul­ty of Mecha­tron­ics and Avi­a­tion while the Bul­gar­i­an uni­ver­si­ty host­ed one MUT cadet for half a year.

Vietnamese students at MUT again

The main objec­tive of the vis­it con­cerned the arrange­ments for the pos­si­bil­i­ty of send­ing Viet­namese stu­dents to MUT. The host of the whole event, the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng., made the pre­sen­ta­tion about the, struc­ture of our uni­ver­si­ty, fields of study avail­able, research being cur­rent­ly con­duct­ed and the issues relat­ed to the inter­na­tion­al coop­er­a­tion. The Vice-Rec­tor also remind­ed the guests of a quite a large group of stu­dents from Viet­nam who grad­u­at­ed from MUT in the sev­en­ties. “They were real­ly hard-work­ing and reli­able stu­dents. Those grad­u­ates who got the high­est results were includ­ed in the hall of uni­ver­si­ty top stu­dents” – Col. Król men­tioned.

Dur­ing the meet­ing the dis­cus­sion broke out on the pos­si­bil­i­ty of study­ing by Viet­namese acad­e­my rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the select­ed MUT fields of study. The guests asked eager­ly about the cur­ric­u­la applied at mecha­tron­ics, opto­elec­tron­ics and cryp­tol­ogy. These are the fields from the first and sec­ond cycle stud­ies which the Viet­namese stu­dents would like to begin at MUT in 2010. The rep­re­sen­ta­tives of MUT fac­ul­ties and orga­ni­za­tion­al units gave sat­is­fac­to­ry and con­vinc­ing answers to the guests’ ques­tions.

The Viet­namese also appear deeply inter­est­ed in the research con­duct­ed in our uni­ver­si­ty relat­ed to the net­work secu­ri­ty and the con­struc­tion of com­put­er­ized lab­o­ra­to­ries. The vis­i­tors con­sid­er even the pos­si­bil­i­ty of third-cycle stud­ies, post­grad­u­ate stud­ies and spe­cial­ist cours­es. Before embark­ing on the first-cycle stud­ies, the Viet­namese will be learn­ing Pol­ish dur­ing the so-called “prepara­to­ry year”. The guests were curi­ous about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of study­ing togeth­er with our MUT stu­dents in Pol­ish. Hav­ing got to know the Pol­ish cul­ture while stay­ing at MUT is an addi­tion­al ben­e­fit which will def­i­nite­ly count in the future.

The Viet­namese del­e­ga­tion at MUT end­ed up admir­ing select­ed lab­o­ra­to­ries. Guests were pre­sent­ed with the research done in deci­sion-mak­ing lab­o­ra­to­ries, com­mand­ing sim­u­la­tion and cryp­tog­ra­phy con­trol at the Fac­ul­ty of Cyber­net­ics and in the lab­o­ra­to­ries of incre­men­tal tech­niques and bat­tle­field sim­u­la­tion at the Fac­ul­ty of Mechan­i­cal Engi­neer­ing. The del­e­ga­tion also vis­it­ed the Insti­tute of Arma­ment at the Fac­ul­ty of Mecha­tron­ics and Aero­space. A pro­found impres­sion was also made on the guests while vis­it­ing the Sports Cen­tre Facil­i­ties.

The vis­it of the Viet­namese mil­i­tary uni­ver­si­ty appeared to be the next phase in order to form a coop­er­a­tion scheme with our uni­ver­si­ty. Because of the changes the Viet­namese uni­ver­si­ty is fac­ing, their rep­re­sen­ta­tives cher­ish the sin­cere hope to adopt and intro­duce some solu­tions which they wit­nessed at MUT in War­saw.

The next episode of coop­er­a­tion between the Pol­ish and Viet­namese mil­i­tary uni­ver­si­ties has just began.

The first military Erasmus at MUT

On 22nd June 2018 the inter­na­tion­al course – Com­mon Mod­ule – Advanced Tech­nolo­gies in Bor­ders Sur­veil­lance at Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy was com­plet­ed. It was held under the aus­pices of Euro­pean Secu­ri­ty and Defence Col­lege.

It was the first ever train­ing at MUT for for­eign mil­i­tary stu­dents with­in the so called Mil­i­tary Eras­mus. Thir­teen stu­dents from Aus­tria, Bel­gium, the Nether­lands, Poland, Roma­nia and Italy were admit­ted as part of the first edi­tion of this course.

‘So far our mil­i­tary stu­dents have only been involved in train­ings abroad in oth­er Euro­pean mil­i­tary acad­e­mies. At last, we are able to return the favour. The first so called com­mon mod­ule car­ried out by MUT sends an unmis­tak­able sig­nal to our part­ner acad­e­mies – we are the out­right mem­ber of Mil­i­tary Eras­mus – we make use of edu­ca­tion offers and we pro­pose ours, in accor­dance with the char­ac­ter of our uni­ver­si­ty’ – says Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng., the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs.

This first ever course is the result of col­lab­o­ra­tion between five ele­men­tary MUT orga­ni­za­tion­al units: Fac­ul­ty of Civ­il Engi­neer­ing and Geo­desy, Fac­ul­ty of Cyber­net­ics, Fac­ul­ty of Elec­tron­ics, Fac­ul­ty of Advanced Tech­nolo­gies and Chem­istry and Insti­tute of Opto­elec­tron­ics. The sub­ject area com­prised tech­niques of geospa­tial intel­li­gence, appli­ca­tion of vir­tu­al sim­u­la­tion for train­ing of bor­der guards, bio­met­ric sup­port, detec­tion of chem­i­cal, radi­a­tion and explo­sive haz­ards, detec­tion and inter­fer­ence of unau­tho­rized radio emis­sions and night vision and infrared tech­nolo­gies.

The pio­neer­ing nature of the course was very well received by the par­tic­i­pants. They praised the orga­ni­za­tion, edu­ca­tion and lan­guage lev­el and, pri­mar­i­ly, the lec­tur­ers’ cre­ativ­i­ty and pas­sion.

The Polish Army team wins NATO chess tournament

Between 4th and 8th June the XXIX NATO chess cham­pi­onship took place in Texas Tech Uni­ver­si­ty in Lub­bock, USA. The Pol­ish Army rep­re­sen­ta­tion won the NATO team cham­pi­on title.

67 peo­ple from 10 allied coun­tries par­tic­i­pat­ed in the tour­na­ment alto­geth­er. The Pol­ish Army team includ­ed MUT sol­diers: 2nd Lt. Alek­sander Stańkows­ki and Sgt. cdt. Marcin Pietruszews­ki. In the team clas­si­fi­ca­tion the suc­ces­sive places belong to: 1. Poland, 2. Ger­many, 3. Greece, 4. USA, 5. Den­mark.

Indi­vid­u­al­ly, gold was award­ed to cdt. Anas­ta­sios Pavlidis, Greece with 6 points, sil­ver to 2nd Lt. Dami­an Graczyk from Spe­cial Unit of Mil­i­tary Police in Mińsk Mazowiec­ki with 5,5 points and bronze to Pvt. Eli­jah Everett from Ger­many.

Hav­ing won the team cham­pi­onship title, the Pol­ish chess play­ers com­mem­o­rat­ed in this way the 100th anniver­sary of regain­ing inde­pen­dence by Poland.

Cadet Kacper Kasprzak – the winner of Common Security and Defence Policy Olympiad

Senior Cor­po­ral cadet Kacper Kasprzak rep­re­sent­ing the Fac­ul­ty of Mecha­tron­ics and Aero­space at MUT dis­played his remark­able knowl­edge and in the IV Com­mon Secu­ri­ty and Defence Pol­i­cy Olympiad final he was award­ed first prize pre­vail­ing oth­er rival stu­dents from over 70 Euro­pean mil­i­tary acad­e­mies which are inte­grat­ed with­in Euro­pean Secu­ri­ty and Defence Col­lege.

This year the final com­pe­ti­tion was held at Vas­sil Lev­s­ki Nation­al Defence Uni­ver­si­ty in Bul­gar­ia from 21st to 25th of May.  The Olympiad is orga­nized every two years by the coun­try which holds the Pres­i­den­cy of the Euro­pean Union.

The arrange­ments for the Olympiad began more than a year ago and basi­cal­ly includ­ed the prepa­ra­tion of an essay in the first stage – a few paged research work con­cern­ing a select­ed sub­ject on secu­ri­ty and defence of the Euro­pean Union. Hav­ing been qual­i­fied to the next stage, the essays were reviewed and eval­u­at­ed inde­pen­dent­ly and the authors of the best ones – after an e‑learning phase – were invit­ed to the final com­pe­ti­tion in Bul­gar­ia.

Even­tu­al­ly, the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of 15 coun­tries entered the com­pe­ti­tion – 38 stu­dents of 22 acad­e­mies. In that stage of rival­ry the stu­dents were oblig­ed to intro­duce the main the­ses of their work in front of the con­test com­mit­tees and the best pre­sen­ta­tions, includ­ing the one of cadet Kasprzak, were pre­sent­ed again in front of the audi­ence of sev­er­al hun­dred peo­ple.

On the sec­ond day of the com­pe­ti­tion the stu­dents had a chance to dis­play their knowl­edge obtained dur­ing the prepa­ra­tions of sev­er­al months before. In the two stages of the final the stu­dents answered 40 spe­cif­ic ques­tions – 25 in the group phase and 15 indi­vid­u­al­ly. The per­fect­ly pre­pared MUT stu­dent proved unbeat­able and won deci­sive­ly with 6 points over the rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Aus­tria and 8 points over the one from Slo­va­kia.

The suc­cess would not be pos­si­ble with­out the sup­port of the cadet’s supe­ri­ors: lieu­tenant Cezary Czar­nec­ki and the com­man­der of the 2nd School Bat­tal­ion Lt. Col. Grze­gorz Sobec­ki who enabled our win­ner to take part in two spe­cial­ized train­ings in Greece and in Italy as part of the prepa­ra­tion for the Olympiad.

The idea of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of our MUT rep­re­sen­ta­tive in the Olympiad itself emerged with­in the Euro­pean Ini­tia­tive for the Exchange of Mil­i­tary Stu­dents, the so-called Mil­i­tary Eras­mus. The whole event was super­vised by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment of MUT: the head, Col. Mar­iusz Gontar­czyk, Ph.D., MSc. Eng. and 2nd Lt. Marcin Górnikiewicz, Ph.D.

Multinational military sports competition

Between 9th and 11th May 2018 Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy orga­nized the Multi­na­tion­al Mil­i­tary Sports and Shoot­ing Games. The cadets from Bel­gium, Bul­gar­ia, Ger­many, Greece, the Nether­lands, Ukraine and two MUT stu­dents took part in the sport­ing events. All sport­ing events were pre­pared and con­duct­ed by Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion Depart­ment and sup­port­ed by Inter­na­tion­al Coop­er­a­tion Depart­ment.

The cadets com­pet­ed in the plain sun in the fol­low­ing dis­ci­plines pre­ced­ed with the train­ing: Pneu­mat­ic Gun Shoot­ing, Ori­en­teer­ing Com­pe­ti­tion, Land Forces Obsta­cle Course, Mil­i­tary Obsta­cle Course, Cross­Fit Com­pe­ti­tion – Cross Work­out and Park­our Chal­lenge.

The cups were pre­sent­ed to the par­tic­i­pants by the Vice-Rec­tor for Mil­i­tary Affairs Col. Artur Król, DSc, Eng dur­ing the MUT Sports Day on 11th May. Indi­vid­u­al­ly, the first and the sec­ond place was won by the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Ukraine from Zhit­o­myr Mil­i­tary Insti­tute and the third place – the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Bul­gar­ia from Niko­la Vapt­sarov Naval Acad­e­my, Var­na.

One of the dis­ci­plines – cross­fit-work­out was done in pairs select­ed from the par­tic­i­pants. There­fore, as a team, the first place was won by the Pol­ish-Bul­gar­i­an team, the sec­ond place – Dutch-Ukrain­ian team and the third place – Ukrain­ian-Bel­gian team.

“Multi­na­tion­al Sports Com­pe­ti­tion means not only rival­ry but it is also the devel­op­ment of abil­i­ty to coop­er­ate in the inter­na­tion­al envi­ron­ment”, said Sat­urnin Przy­byl­s­ki, Ph.D., the Head of Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion Depart­ment.

The ini­tia­tive to hold the com­pe­ti­tion orig­i­nat­ed with­in the frame­works of coop­er­a­tion between MUT and Euro­pean mil­i­tary insti­tutes in which the MUT has been active­ly involved since the begin­ning of 2017.

While stay­ing at the MUT, the par­tic­i­pants took a short tour of the firearms lab­o­ra­to­ry at the Fac­ul­ty of Mecha­tron­ics and Aero­space and those who kept up their strength took part in the MUT Year­ly Stu­dent Car­ni­val.
