When the Senate of the Mining Academy appointed the first Council of the Faculty of Metallurgical Engineering on 21st May, 1922, metallurgy became a new, separate course. In its long history, the faculty’s name changed several times. At present, it is the Faculty of Metals Engineering and Industrial Computer Science.
Current research focuses on extractive metallurgy, materials science, metal forming, heat engineering, environmental protection, computer-aided modelling of metallurgical processes, and industrial computer science.
The current faculty structure comprises departments which conduct research and educate students in Metallurgy, Materials Science, Heat Engineering, and Applied Computer Science. The faculty collaborates with Polish research centres of a similar profile: the Faculty of Materials Science and Metallurgy at the Silesian University of Technology in Katowice, the Faculty of Production Engineering and Materials Technology at the Częstochowa University of Technology, the Institute of Metallurgy and Materials Science at the Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow, the Institute of Iron Metallurgy in Gliwice, and others. The faculty maintains excellent contacts with industry by participating in research projects and industrial training.
International collaboration includes long-term scientific contacts with industry, universities, and research institutes.
Faculty graduates are prepared for careers in metals engineering, heat and air conditioning, environmental protection and waste management, and computer science for materials engineering. Graduates of Education in Technology and Computer Science can work in all types of educational institutions, including universities. They are also prepared to give lectures and training in applied and industrial computer science on courses organized by various organizations, companies, and institutions.
