Wojskowa Akademia Tech­nicz­na im. Jarosława Dąbrowskiego (Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, MUT) in War­saw is a mil­i­tary, aca­d­e­m­ic poly­tech­nic uni­ver­si­ty oper­at­ing since 1951. As a pub­lic uni­ver­si­ty super­vised by the Min­is­ter of Nation­al Defence, the Uni­ver­si­ty edu­cates stu­dents and con­ducts sci­en­tif­ic research.

The MUT offer includes: first degree stud­ies (engi­neer­ing and bach­e­lor’s degree), sec­ond degree (mas­ter’s degree), third degree (doc­tor­ate), as well as post­grad­u­ate stud­ies and fur­ther edu­ca­tion and lan­guage cours­es.

The Uni­ver­si­ty edu­cates stu­dents in mil­i­tary and civil­ian stud­ies. Grad­u­ates of mil­i­tary stud­ies receive the pro­fes­sion­al title of mag­is­ter inżynier and are appoint­ed to the rank of sec­ond lieu­tenant. Civil­ian stud­ies are gen­er­al­ly avail­able, with­out any oblig­a­tion to the Min­istry of Nation­al Defence. These stud­ies pro­vide the oppor­tu­ni­ty to obtain the pro­fes­sion­al title of inżynier or licenc­jat, mag­is­ter inżynier or mag­is­ter, a sci­en­tif­ic degree of dok­tor.

The speci­fici­ty of the Uni­ver­si­ty is the train­ing of can­di­dates for pro­fes­sion­al sol­diers for the needs of the Pol­ish Armed Forces, in corpses and per­son­nel groups in accor­dance with the needs and the lim­it set each year by the Min­is­ter of Nation­al Defence. Recruit­ment for this type of stud­ies is con­duct­ed among high school grad­u­ates apply­ing to take up ser­vice in the Pol­ish Army.

Dur­ing their stud­ies, cadets receive accom­mo­da­tion, food, uni­forms and finan­cial com­pen­sa­tion at the expense of the Min­istry of Nation­al Defence.

The Uni­ver­si­ty con­ducts civil­ian stud­ies in full-time and part-time mode in over twen­ty majors. Full-time stud­ies are free of charge, part-time stud­ies — paid. Admis­sion lim­its for par­tic­u­lar fields of study are set by the Rec­tor’s deci­sion before start­ing the recruit­ment process.

The cur­ric­u­la imple­ment­ed at the Uni­ver­si­ty have been devel­oped on the basis of the intend­ed learn­ing out­comes adopt­ed by the Uni­ver­si­ty Sen­ate, in accor­dance with the Pol­ish Qual­i­fi­ca­tion Frame­work (PQF) for high­er edu­ca­tion in the scope of: knowl­edge, skills and com­pe­tences. The train­ing of can­di­dates for pro­fes­sion­al sol­diers is also based on the train­ing con­tent spec­i­fied in the mil­i­tary train­ing stan­dard devel­oped by the Min­istry of Nation­al Defence for can­di­dates for offi­cers. Most of the fields of study con­duct­ed at the Uni­ver­si­ty are accred­it­ed by the Pol­ish Accred­i­ta­tion Com­mit­tee (PAC) and/or the Accred­i­ta­tion Com­mit­tee of Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ties (ACTU), and some also hold the Euro­pean Cer­tifi­cate EUR-ACE®Bachelor, EUR-ACE®Master — thanks to this, by ensur­ing high qual­i­ty of edu­ca­tion, MUT grad­u­ates can com­pete on both the Pol­ish and Euro­pean labour mar­ket.

The didac­tic process in the MUT is cur­rent­ly car­ried out by eight basic organ­i­sa­tion­al units: Fac­ul­ty of Cyber­net­ics, Fac­ul­ty of Elec­tron­ics, Fac­ul­ty of Civ­il Engi­neer­ing and Geo­desy, Fac­ul­ty of Logis­tics, Fac­ul­ty of Mechan­i­cal Engi­neer­ing, Fac­ul­ty of Mecha­tron­ics and Avi­a­tion, Fac­ul­ty of New Tech­nolo­gies and Chem­istry and Insti­tute of Opto­elec­tron­ics.

Edu­ca­tion in for­eign lan­guages, phys­i­cal cul­ture and mil­i­tary train­ing is car­ried out by gen­er­al edu­ca­tion­al units, respec­tive­ly: For­eign Lan­guages School, Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion School and Mil­i­tary Train­ing School.

The Uni­ver­si­ty con­ducts sci­en­tif­ic research as well as imple­men­ta­tion and mod­ern­iza­tion works in the field of tech­ni­cal and mil­i­tary sci­ences.

Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, as a rec­og­nized and high­ly rep­utable poly­tech­nic uni­ver­si­ty, coop­er­ates with many nation­al uni­ver­si­ties, insti­tu­tions and research cen­tres, e.g. with the War­saw Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, Poz­nań Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, Łódź Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, Wrocław Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, Adam Mick­iewicz Uni­ver­si­ty in Poz­nań, Insti­tute of Fun­da­men­tal Tech­no­log­i­cal Prob­lems of the Pol­ish Acad­e­my of Sci­ences. Coop­er­a­tion ties also con­nect MUT with for­eign uni­ver­si­ties and insti­tu­tions, e.g.  the Unit­ed King­dom, France, Ger­many, Slo­va­kia, the Czech Repub­lic, Roma­nia and the USA. The effect of this coop­er­a­tion is the exchange of stu­dents and staff par­tic­i­pat­ing in the imple­men­ta­tion of inter­na­tion­al pro­grammes, papers and research. MUT mil­i­tary stu­dents select­ed through a com­pe­ti­tion study at West Point, USA.

The MUT oper­ates the Euro­pean Cred­it Trans­fer and Accu­mu­la­tion Sys­tem ECTS, which enables stu­dents to car­ry out part of their stud­ies at oth­er nation­al and for­eign uni­ver­si­ties. The MUT inter­na­tion­al stu­dent exchange takes place through the Eras­mus+ pro­gramme and the nation­al exchange takes place through the MOSTECH pro­gramme and oth­ers.

As con­firmed by pub­lished rank­ings and reg­u­lar sur­veys, grad­u­ates of the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy (so far almost 60 thou­sand grad­u­ates have left the Uni­ver­si­ty) are high­ly val­ued by employ­ers in Poland and abroad. MUT grad­u­ates gain broad employ­ment prospects in many sec­tors of the econ­o­my and indus­tries, both in pub­lic and pri­vate com­pa­nies. Grad­u­ates of mil­i­tary stud­ies at the MUT cur­rent­ly make up a sig­nif­i­cant part of the offi­cer corps of the Pol­ish Army.

Attrac­tive loca­tion of the uni­ver­si­ty in the cap­i­tal grants the stud­ies in MUT a unique atmos­phere. The Uni­ver­si­ty is locat­ed in the imme­di­ate vicin­i­ty of the Kampinos For­est, in the green and eco­log­i­cal part of Bemowo.

The Uni­ver­si­ty pro­vides stu­dents with an aca­d­e­m­ic cam­pus includ­ing didac­tic and research build­ings as well as full social and liv­ing facil­i­ties, sports and recre­ation and cul­tur­al facil­i­ties, includ­ing: stu­dent dor­mi­to­ries, an aca­d­e­m­ic hotel, a stu­dent club, a library, a book­shop, an aca­d­e­m­ic cin­e­ma, play­grounds, sports courts and halls, an indoor swim­ming pool, restau­rants, cafes and bars.

The MUT Club offers a rich cul­tur­al and edu­ca­tion­al pro­gramme, orga­nizes meet­ings and con­certs, pro­vides an oppor­tu­ni­ty to joint­ly devel­op cul­tur­al inter­ests. Mem­bers of the Stu­dent His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety par­tic­i­pate in numer­ous recon­struc­tions in Poland and abroad. The Aca­d­e­m­ic Choir of the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy and the MUT Orches­tra active­ly par­tic­i­pate in the cul­tur­al life of the uni­ver­si­ty — most of the ensem­bles are stu­dents and grad­u­ates, win­ning numer­ous awards at nation­al com­pe­ti­tions and fes­ti­vals.

Stu­dents and uni­ver­si­ty employ­ees can pur­sue their inter­ests and pas­sions in numer­ous sports sec­tions of AZS MUT and in the MUT Sail­ing Club. The cen­tre and yacht port in Zegrze is locat­ed 35 km from War­saw on the Zegrzyńs­ki Lagoon. It pro­vides con­di­tions for tourism and recre­ation. There is a com­plex of cot­tages, a beach, a sports field, a bar and oth­ers.

 

Gen­er­al uni­ver­si­ty teach­ing units

The For­eign Lan­guages School is an organ­i­sa­tion­al unit imple­ment­ing the process of lan­guage teach­ing for all forms of high­er edu­ca­tion and doc­tor­al stud­ies pro­vid­ed by MUT. It also orga­nizes lan­guage cours­es for MND in accor­dance with NATO STANAG 6001 stan­dard (lev­els 1 – 4).

The Phys­i­cal Edu­ca­tion School orga­nizes and con­ducts all under­tak­ings con­cern­ing didac­tic and train­ing activ­i­ties at the uni­ver­si­ty in the field of phys­i­cal edu­ca­tion and sport for stu­dents, as well as pro­fes­sion­al staff and civil­ian employ­ees of the MUT. The base of the School is a mod­ern com­plex of sports facil­i­ties locat­ed on the MUT cam­pus, with its own indoor swim­ming pool.

Mil­i­tary Train­ing School is a gen­er­al uni­ver­si­ty organ­i­sa­tion­al unit estab­lished to per­form teach­ing tasks and prac­ti­cal class­es com­mon for the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, aimed at acquir­ing and devel­op­ing knowl­edge and skills in the mil­i­tary field (mil­i­tary edu­ca­tion) by pro­fes­sion­al sol­diers, can­di­dates for pro­fes­sion­al sol­diers, reserve sol­diers.
