Dur­ing the vis­it the Bul­gar­i­an del­e­ga­tion was pre­sent­ed struc­ture of our uni­ver­si­ty, fields of study avail­able, research being cur­rent­ly con­duct­ed and the issues relat­ed to the inter­na­tion­al coop­er­a­tion.

The vis­it is the next lev­el of the bilat­er­al coop­er­a­tion between the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy and the Niko­la Vapt­sarov Naval Acad­e­my from Bul­gar­ia.

A Journey of MUT Cadets to Experience American Culture

The U.S. Depart­ment of State orga­nized the inter­na­tion­al pro­gramme Study of U.S. Insti­tute between 22.06. and 28.07.2019 for 99 young lead­ers of var­i­ous coun­tries from all over the world. The stu­dents attend­ed lec­tures at four insti­tutes where they gained a thor­ough insight into mul­ti­ple prob­lems.

Three MUT cadets – senior cor­po­rals Katarzy­na Andrze­jak, Mateusz Stachec­ki and Daniel Walasek took part in that event on the Uni­ver­si­ty of Neva­da cam­pus in Reno, Neva­da, togeth­er with cadets of Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Land Forces and Pol­ish Naval Acad­e­my.

The sub­ject mat­ter of the lec­tures includ­ed Role of Law and Pub­lic Ser­vice. Its aim was to famil­iar­ize the par­tic­i­pants with one of the key pil­lars of Amer­i­can author­i­ty – judi­cia­ry of the fed­er­al sys­tem.

The cadets also par­tic­i­pat­ed in sev­er­al meet­ings, e.g. with the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Nation­al Guard and at the mil­i­tary base of Car­son City. The focal point of the vis­it was the train­ing and work­out ses­sion with sol­diers of Marine Corps.

In addi­tion to inten­sive class­es, the cadets did the sight­see­ing trips near­by, e.g. to San Fran­cis­co and, there­fore, they became acquaint­ed with the cul­tur­al life of the USA.

Dur­ing the last week of the stay, the par­tic­i­pants spent their time in Atlanta and Wash­ing­ton where they took part in the sum-up class­es, lec­tures and train­ings. The whole expe­ri­ence turned out to be an unfor­get­table one for the cadets of our uni­ver­si­ty.

MUT cadets succeed during international sports challenge, Hamburg, Germany

Three MUT cadets: sergeant Sła­womir Kurza­w­ińs­ki and mas­ter cor­po­rals Bartłomiej War­muz and Radosław War­muz, who rep­re­sent the MUT Water Land Air Orga­ni­za­tion and the S3 MUT Para­chut­ing Sec­tion, won the first prize dur­ing the Mil­i­tary Shoot­ing and Sport Chal­lenge (MSSC) between 21 – 26 July in Ham­burg, Ger­many. 12 coun­tries which took part in the event were: Poland, Ger­many, Fin­land, Roma­nia, The Czech Repub­lic, Slo­va­kia, Den­mark, Great Britain, Croa­t­ia, Lithua­nia, Latvia, the Nether­lands.

MSSC is very high­ly regard­ed at the mil­i­tary inter­na­tion­al are­na because of the wide vari­ety and the high lev­el of dif­fi­cul­ty of over 20 sports events. The whole chal­lenge was strict­ly mil­i­tary and includ­ed e.g. Cross Fit, shoot­ing, run­ning, Mil­i­tary Fit­ness, mil­i­tary obsta­cle course, sports swim­ming. Hav­ing won the tro­phies, our cadets also earned the Ger­man mil­i­tary phys­i­cal fit­ness and shoot­ing badges.

Military service has begun

Hav­ing gone through a dif­fi­cult recruit­ment process and entrance exams, near­ly 900 can­di­dates for pro­fes­sion­al sol­diers began their basic mil­i­tary train­ing at Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy. Dur­ing that time, they do their best to get to grips with mil­i­tary craft – a com­pul­so­ry ele­ment of mil­i­tary stud­ies at MUT.

The fresh­ly admit­ted can­di­dates are giv­en sets of uni­forms and nec­es­sary mil­i­tary equip­ment. Then, they are sent to appro­pri­ate sub­units where the staff and infra­struc­ture is pre­sent­ed. At the first-class ses­sion, the future sol­diers become acquaint­ed with mil­i­tary ranks, reg­u­la­tions and drills. They also receive their weapons and attend such lec­tures and train­ings as: mil­i­tary course, logis­tics, civic edu­ca­tion and mil­i­tary edu­ca­tion which are oblig­a­tory to pass in order to for­mal­ly become MUT stu­dents.

Basic mil­i­tary train­ing for the can­di­dates is the time for their adap­ta­tion and prepa­ra­tion for mil­i­tary ser­vice in the future. The knowl­edge and skills gained dur­ing these six weeks of train­ing will be test­ed at the end of Sep­tem­ber and the mil­i­tary oath cer­e­mo­ny will take place on 27th Sep­tem­ber.

Newly commissioned officers in the Polish Army

On the 9 August 2019 in the Mar­shall Pił­sud­s­ki Square in War­saw 233 grad­u­ates of Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy were com­mis­sioned dur­ing the offi­cial cer­e­mo­ny. Rec­tor-Com­man­dant of Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy Brig Gen dr hab. inż. Tadeusz Szczurek, prof. of MUT admit­ted that these offi­cers are com­pe­tent and effi­cient peo­ple who are high­ly qual­i­fied sol­diers and com­man­ders. The Min­is­ter of Nation­al Defence Mar­iusz Błaszczak addressed his let­ter to the par­tic­i­pants of the event and empha­sized the role of Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy in cre­at­ing and edu­cat­ing prospec­tive offi­cers.

Becom­ing a Pol­ish offi­cer means not only a mat­ter of pride but also a great respon­si­bil­i­ty. The com­mis­sion­ing itself took place right after the res­o­lu­tion of the Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Poland which was read aloud. The most gift­ed stu­dents were also award­ed for the achieve­ments dur­ing the stud­ies. The whole event marks the end of the stud­ies and mil­i­tary train­ing. It is also a great cel­e­bra­tion for the fam­i­lies, rel­a­tives, com­man­ders and lec­tur­ers. Now the young offi­cers will take up the posi­tions in a vari­ety of mil­i­tary units across Poland.

The del­e­ga­tion com­prised three mem­bers: 1st Lt Cezary Czar­nec­ki and two cadets ­– Sgt Daw­id Boryczko and Sgt Alek­san­dra Figat.

The del­e­ga­tions of mil­i­tary acad­e­mies rep­re­sent­ing 16 coun­tries which par­tic­i­pat­ed in the event includ­ed: the Czech Repub­lic, Greece, France, Por­tu­gal, Swe­den, Ger­many, Cana­da, Moroc­co, Roma­nia, Ser­bia, Bul­gar­ia, Lithua­nia and Latvia.

Dur­ing the vis­it the MUT del­e­gates got acquaint­ed with the acad­e­my cam­pus, lab­o­ra­to­ries, sports facil­i­ties and research activ­i­ties of the Bel­gian acad­e­my. Anoth­er part of the stay was the vis­i­ta­tion in the mil­i­tary train­ing cen­tre in March­es-Les-Dames in the south­ern Bel­gium where the moun­tain climb­ing train­ing was con­duct­ed under the super­vi­sion of expe­ri­enced Bel­gian instruc­tors.

The atten­dees of Inter­na­tion­al Week had also the pos­si­bil­i­ty to take a tour of Brus­sels and Bruges. The final high­light on the agen­da was The Roy­al Mil­i­tary Acad­e­my Ball dur­ing which the offi­cial pre­sen­ta­tion of mil­i­tary acad­e­mies could be wit­nessed.

The pres­ence of MUT rep­re­sen­ta­tives in Inter­na­tion­al Week turned out to be the oppor­tu­ni­ty to encounter The Roy­al Mil­i­tary Acad­e­my and to engage in con­tacts with for­eign­ers from var­i­ous mil­i­tary acad­e­mies.
