The Polish Science Voice

A publication co-financed by The Military University of Technology
Whenever I read about Polish universities I’m amazed to see just how little we know about them. In most cases, all we know is that they train students and pursue some kind of research, largely enigmatic to the general public. Moreover, we tend to underestimate and criticize them for ranking low in international league tables. Critics also highlight what they believe are the universities’ poor ties with business and research centers abroad. Another stereotype is that all Polish universities suffer from a shortage of money, report unimpressive research results and secure few patents. In short, the overall picture of Poland’s higher education system is pretty depressing.
Brig. Gen. Prof. Zygmunt Mierczyk, rector of the Military University of Technology in Warsaw, talks to Karolina Olszewska.
Despite its name, the Military University of Technology has more civilians attending courses than students in uniform as it marks its 60th year in service. The same is true of the university’s teaching faculty: teachers in uniform account for just 15 percent of the total.
A consortium of top Polish research centers led by the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements in Warsaw is working to develop an integrated system for supporting anti-terrorist and crisis management operations. The system is called Proteus and work on the project began in 2008. The project is co-financed by the European Union and is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
New photonic materials and their advanced applications are at the center of a major project being carried out by scientists at the Military University of Technology.
A group of engineers from the Military University of Technology have designed an innovative railroad car with a revolving low-floor platform that can be used to carry trucks.
The Military University of Technology’s Center for Applied Geomatics is one of three centers of its kind in Poland using digital weather models.
“Modernization and construction of new science and research infrastructure for the Military University of Technology and the Warsaw University of Technology to facilitate joint numerical and experimental research on jet aircraft engines” is the name of a new project managed by Prof. Aleksander Olejnik from the Aviation Technology Institute at the Military University of Technology’s Faculty of Mechatronics.
The theater of war is not only a place where war operations take place. It also covers the civilians who live there. The military must keep them in mind while conducting operations, trying to make sure that civilians do not suffer. The Athena project being carried out as a result of a competition launched by the European Defence Agency (EDA) aims to support allied forces as part of what are called asymmetric operations.
