Main Directions of Activity

A wide scope of research conducted at the university is a result of the contemporary structure which has been shaped over the last 100 years; the development of the university units was connected with the dynamic development of the country’s economy. Invariably, AGH UST’s ambition has been getting ahead of the present time, a result of which are many innovative solutions in different areas. There are approximately 32,000 students studying at the university and 4,144 staff, including 172 full professors, 259 associate professors, 1129 assistant professors, and 380 assistants.

Material and Technical Base

Over 150 lecture rooms; over 200 rooms designed for practical classes and discussions; over 680 laboratory-type rooms; over 40 conference rooms and theatres. Lecture and conference rooms are equipped with multimedia projectors, visualisers, interactive whiteboards and monitors, screens, video conference systems, microphones, professional sound systems, as well as systems enabling simultaneous translation and interpreting. The equipment enables conducting classes (as well as organising conferences, symposia, meetings and trainings) with the use of multimedia technologies and modern teaching methods.
