The University of Bielsko-Biala (Akademia Techniczno-Humanistyczna w Bielsku-Bialej) was founded in October 2001 as an independent governmental academic institution. Previously, since 1969, it had been a branch of the Technical University of Lodz (Politechnika Lódzka). The machine-design, electrical and textile industries are traditional for the region so the main education areas have been long established. With the change in the economy, there have also developed other fields of study including management, humanities, environmental and computer sciences.
At present, about 5,000 students are studying at five faculties: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science; Faculty of Materials, Civil and Environmental Engineering; Faculty of Management and Transport; Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Faculty of Health Sciences. The university employs about 400 people, including 200 experienced professors and other members of the academic staff.
The University of Bielsko-Biala is open to new ideas and opportunities to improve modern educational tools. Internationalization has become here the most important objective of the University being constantly promoted through its participation in various European network projects.
The university cooperates with many academic centres and research institutes all over the world. The number of bilateral agreements is growing rapidly each year – nowadays we have Erasmus+ agreements with over 100 institutions in EU and beyond, as well as about 50 bilateral agreements covering scientific and educational cooperation with foreign partners.
