History of Poznań University of TechnologyThe history of the first Polish technical higher education institutionbeganin 1919 when People’s Leading Council founded Higher State Schoolof Mechanical Engineering.In 1921 in the “Wiadomości Techniczne” newspaper “Appeal to theAuthorities to establish Poznań University of Technology” appeared.The document included the reasons for creation such type of school.Established in 1919, Higher State School of Mechanical Engineeringwas renamed Higher State School of Mechanical and ElectricalEngineeringand in 1930 the Faculty of Electrical Engineering began functioning.In 1937 the Ministry of Education formally agreed to establishPoznań University of Technology, but the beginning of World War IIdisturbedthe plans.
After the war the efforts to establish apolytechnics in Poznań were continued:• Organizational Committee of Poznan University of Technology wasformed. It formulated the plan and the grounds to set up a newuniversity.• School of Engineering was founded. Three faculties – Faculty ofMechanical Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering andFaculty of Civil Engineering made up the school.• In 1953 in a new site (today it is the Piotrowo Campus) a buildingto house Faculty of Civil Engineering was completed. In September1953 Faculty of Agriculture Mechanization was set up.• 1955 was the year of the big change – Poznan School ofEngineering was transformed into Poznań University of Technologyaccording to the order of the Minister of Higher Education.
Poznań University of Technology in 1955 -20081955 – Poznań University of Technology is established1967 – Władysław Ślebodziński is the first person to obtain thehonorarydoctor degree1968 – Faculty of Chemistry (now Faculty of Chemical Technology)is established1995 – Poznań University of Technology is the first Polish universityto become a full member of CESAER – Conference ofEuropeanSchools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research1996 – PUT becomes an “autonomous” university entitled to grantdoctoral degrees and professor titles1997 – Faculty of Technical Physics is established1999 – Faculty of Architecture is established2001 – Faculty of Computing Science and Management isestablished2006 – Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications is established
