Gasars – ultralight materials for the space industry. AGH UST and IMIM PAN intensify cooperation

The Liquid Metal Engineering Laboratory was established at the Faculty of Foundry Engineering. The opening of the new facility was accompanied by the conclusion of an agreement on cooperation between the AGH UST and the Institute...


AGH UST scientists develop low-emission technologies of hydrogen production

The picture shows the symbol of hydrogen surrounded by white hexagons and wind turbines. There are also words such as green, hydrogen, renewable energy, and power. Dominating colours are: blue and green. The background of the picture features the shape of planet Earth with continents.

Reducing humanity’s carbon footprint is currently the most pressing and important challenge which the societies of both industrial and developing countries must face. To prevent rapid climate change, we should, among other...


AGH UST Scientists Examine Stone Sarcophagi

What secrets do they hide? Scientists from the Faculty of Geology, Geophysics and Environmental Protection try to answer that question. They, together with the creators of the History Hiking channel, have examined the von Magnis...


AGH UST Land Surveyors Verify Peak Heights. Why Do the Measurements Change?

On the left side, there is a GNSS receiver. It is the colour of steel and stands on a tripod. The AGH UST flag is wrapped around the tripod. The flag is composed of three horizontal stripes coloured, from the top, green, black, and red. The background of the photo constitutes a mountain crest. Granite rocks covered in green flora are visible. Above the mountain crest there is a blue sky, which is partly covered by white and grey clouds.

Scientists from the Faculty of Mining Surveying and Environmental Engineering have measured the heights of the highest summits in Ukraine and the Crown of Polish Mountains. Their efforts, which have already been reported in the...


Graph Transformations to Help with Simulations of Pollution Propagation over Małopolska Province

The picture shows 3D simulation of air movement over the Tatra Mountains in Poland. The terrain is covered with a topographic mesh made of triangular elements. Lower parts of the mountains are coloured in blue and higher parts gradually change to orange. The northwest wind is marked with grey arrows.

How powerful should computers be to effectively predict the propagation of pollution throughout the territory of the Małopolska Province? A research group headed by Professor Maciej Paszyński from the Faculty of Computer Science,...


AGH UST Scientists Research Smog-Free Altitudes

Thanks to putting the measuring equipment on a sightseeing balloon, the scientists from the Faculty of Physics and Applied Computer Science have already gathered thousands of vertical profiles of the atmosphere. Their research...


Work of Art, Work of Science. Creative Encounter of AGH UST Researchers with the World of Culture

We are well aware that science can be an art sometimes. However, is there room for science in art? AGH UST researchers claim that scientists can play an important role in the process of conservation and creation of awe-inspiring...


Artificial Intelligence (AI) inspired an AGH UST researcher to create a model of COVID-19 propagation in air

When Professor Maciej Paszyński from the AGH UST Faculty of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunications, together with his team, published an article describing a method for fast computer simulations, he could not have...


Collective Intelligence in the Service of the Electronic Republic. AGH UST Researchers Analyse the Influence of Computer Science Techniques on Social Participation

In what way can the Internet increase the participation of citizens in governing the country? The Faculty of Humanities and its Research Group for ICT Applications (information and communication technologies) in the public domain...


Electronic “zero waste”? AGH researchers are developing innovative methods of recycling photovoltaic panels

Electronic waste as a rich source of valuable raw materials? It is possible! The research group under the guidance of Krzysztof Brody, DSc, from the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Resource Management creates innovative methods...
