Quality of education

The university has so far educated over 170,000 engineers and master’s degree graduates ensuring specialists for the Polish economy. The education and qualifications that can be obtained at the university are highly appreciated and recognised by employers both in Poland and abroad. Bright professional careers of many AGH UST graduates who become employed at various positions, often including the highest ones, are an easy to follow, practical proof of the real quality and usability of knowledge gained at the university.


Graduates of the AGH University of Science and Technology are individuals with high qualifications, which enable them to take up employment in various branches of industry, as well as to occupy positions at any level of the central administration. The time spent at the university also enables them to gain knowledge and qualifications which are later utilised in the process of establishing their own businesses. Among the graduates of the university there are chairmen and presidents of large international corporations, public figures (ministers, voivodes, presidents of cities), as well as world-known artists. Many AGH UST graduates fulfil their potential in large concerns and companies both in Poland and abroad. In the first place, they appreciate the education provided by the university, as well as the practical aspect of the knowledge acquired here.


Many of our university teachers have wide experience gained in industrial plants. At the same time, students have an opportunity to do work experience and receive professional training in a large number of renowned companies, which later makes their start to professional career much easier. Many of them undertake employment while still during their course of studies.


Excellent scientific research and teaching staff, first-class technical devices, modern laboratories and equipment, close collaboration with industry and modern-technology companies, as well as continuous and ongoing care about the quality of education – they are the reasons why the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow has been a leading Polish technical university for one hundred years.
