Alumni

Each year, the number of alumni of the AGH University of Science and Technology grows, adding thousands of former students. A degree obtained at the AGH UST is an unquestionable token of diligent education which opens up a myriad of opportunities for those young people leaving our university. Several of them decide to stay with us and begin their scientific and academic activity at leading research institutes in Poland and abroad. Some choose to pursue professional careers and find well-paid and prospective jobs. Starting their own business is also an option that a fair number of AGH UST alumni choose to pursue. Having established numerous connections during their years at the university where emphasis is put on self-reliance and entrepreneurship, entering the world of business is definitely easier.

The University supports various initiatives and efforts to aid in the development of young people. Such activities include participation in student research clubs, student governments, and numerous associations and societies. The AGH UST alumnus is therefore a specialist in their field and a responsible, decisive, and passionate human being. It is the work of reliable and committed people that stands behind the good reputation of the University, which is associated with nothing less than the best quality.

The certainty of these claims is justified not only by popular opinion but, first and foremost, by the hard numbers, statistics, and data collected by the AGH UST Career Centre. The figures clearly show that our alumni perform exceptionally well on the job market, quickly finding jobs which suit their scientific and professional aspirations. The data also show that our alumni hold high-level positions and occupy important posts in key segments of the economy. The IT industry and the sector of new technologies are particularly interested in our alumni graduating with science and technical degrees, reaching out to them themselves. The Job Fairs, organised on a regular basis by the Career Centre, attract businesses from Krakow and the whole country, helping AGH UST alumni to choose their dream job.

AGH UST alumni, in addition to being knowledgeable and passionate, are characterised by a strong sense of connection that forms during their university years and is further nurtured after graduation. We all share the openness to support, cooperation, and relationships. AGH UST alumni frequently take an active part in the life of their faculties, even after graduation, participating in scientific and cultural events. They also meet at annual balls or rallies, creating and maintaining lasting relationships. Student years bring back memories not only of cramming before exams, but also of meetings at the wonderful AGH UST Student Campus, of events, celebrations, festivals, and the everyday student life to which everyone, regardless of their age, goes back with perfectly justifiable nostalgia.
