At AGH University the quality of studies and approach to students differs between faculties, some faculties have really modern infrastructure and equipment and a respectful approach to their students. But there are still some group of facilities, where the curriculum, facilities, and style of teaching is out of date, students are not treated as partners. A similar situation is with difficulty of studies, I have studied at two faculties and there is a huge difference in the time and effort needed to pass the exams.
Currently, I am studying Computer Science, although it’s demanding, it’s worth investing time if someone wants to become a specialist in this field. The studying program is up-to-date, continuously being improved and adjusted for changes on the market. Also, the facilities and laboratories in our building are really modern.
When it comes to students associations our university is supportive, there are many associations to choose from. Also, a lot of events are organized, so there are plenty of options for spending free time.
Apart from that AGH University is very stable financially, the university is developing all the time, and a lot of renovations are made.
The plus of University is the location and the fact the campus is complex, everything is in one place all the buildings and dormitories as well, so that’s very convenient for students.
Taking into consideration other universities in Poland – AGH is a good choice.
I study system modelling and data analisys at the department of computer science. It’s a new specialization taught in English. The courses are pretty good and interesting, very actual, with only few exception and prepare for the job of data scientist – the hottest job position these days. You can easily kick in the IT market after graduation.View more
Great localization of the campus with all faculty buildings in one area. Most of the facilities and equipment adjusted to students needs. You will find modern laboratories very well equipped, but also some outdated facilities. Although, the campus is being continuously renovated and you can find super cosy and modern places to spend free time between lectures (check out Centre of Energetics).
Accommodation for students is great – dormitories are super close to the campus, as well as very cheap and pretty decent housing conditions.
If you’re searching for student life, you will find a lot of great student organizations and interesting projects to join (from sending your robot to space to learn how to play bridge).
University is international, we have a wide offer of studies in English. A lot of foreign students come here for an exchange and I’ve never heard they regret it.
When it comes to the academic part – professors usually teach what you should learn. And most of the knowledge you should get yourself. If you want to balance student life, hobby and university – AGH is a good choice.
I’m studying electrical engineering student at the University of Science and Technology AGH and i feel like it’s a right place. I don’t think that I waste my time here or something. There is a lot of stuff u can do to improve at the University like for example interesting organizations. For me this faculty is pretty challenging and rewarding. I would definitely recommend this University for those, who look for technical studies.View more
The whole campus is in one place, not too far from the city centre so it’s very easy to get anywhere in the city!
There are also a lot of learning modules you can participate in and the atmosphere is great as well 🙂
You have the ability to join student organizations (like EESTEC https://eestec.net/) to expand your knowledge and receive experience that you will not get at any university 🙂View more
This university have great location, everything is in one place and everywhere is close.
The buildings are new and all the time we having newest.
Professor’s are really good teachers.
We have a lot of opportunities to improve our hobbies in a lot of association.
Being a student on Electrical Engineering faculty I can say that depends on your expectations – you have a lot of options. If you are into management, you can be a part of students’ organization or students’ parlament. If you want to develop in technical field – go and check science clubs. Amazing campus will make your student’s life brighter.
What’s typical for Polish universities, you will also have a plenty of useless, obligatory courses, that will be waste of time. Also, quality of stuff leave a lot of space for improvement in some cases.View more
I’m on the last year of Biomedical Engineering, on the specialization: Computing and Electronics in Medicine. I must say that this course is good choice for people who have really wide interests and still look for their path in professional career. It gives background in many different fields and possibility to choose later on some more specific subjects like bioinformatics or biomaterials. On other hand, I would not recommend it to people who want to gain precise and specific knowledge in one area.
This University gives also a lot of possibility to develop in different fields. You can find many many students associations or scientific groups there and the course program is not too overloading.View more
I’m studying at this Uni for 3yrs now, my field is Automatics and Robotics.
Brief Description what was going on in the last 3 years:
We had 2 semesters on which we programmed PLC (physical drivers) on one we controlled a motor with an encoder, on the other we focused more on getting familiar with the TIA portal programming environment, including HMI programming.
We also had 1 semester of classes devoted to the SCADA itself in the program which name I didn’t remember.
When it comes to Robotics we had a semester when we learned MelfaBasic, there were robots in the laboratory so you had the opportunity to code the physical robot, not only simulators.
In the next semester, we dealt with some accuracy measurements, gripper designs.
Pneumatics and hydraulics we had labs on which we connected pneumatic, electro-pneumatic and hydraulic systems.
We had logic gates from electronics and program the microcontroller in assembler but on the simulator (some irony because we had physical examples in a lab).
There are two technical universities in Krakow, and on both occasions to gain more knowledge and experience, there are open workshops connected to this field, so when it comes to developing your “Electrical Engineering skills” Kraków might be a good choice.
Ofc there was more lectures and labs, I just mention some because for me those were the most valuable ones. (https://syllabuskrk.agh.edu.pl/2015-2016/en/treasuries/academy_units/5/study_plans here u can find full description)
When it comes to side activities AGH is the best choice we have here a lot of students research groups we’re building Electric cars, motorbikes, boats, drones, rockets, spaceships, robots… Whatever u dream of – if we don’t have a group which you’re interested in. I can assure that you will easily find students who will join.
If you’re interested in chilling and meeting new people – perfect place for you to live would be one of the dorm – a lot of interesting ppl to meet there and the location is awesome – on a Campus 20min of a walk from city centre.
Though if you prefer calmer environment I would not recommend.
I’ve studied on AGH for both Bachelors and Masters. From the experience of me and my friends, the quality of classes and curriculums varies between faculties. In some fields like telecommunications, energetics or automatics, AGH employs plenty of world-class trained staff ready to share their experience; in others, there could definitely be some improvement when it comes to presenting the knowledge and learning opportunities in more student-friendly ways. One thing can be sure – if you are serious about learning, here you will have many opportunities to find your way and gather knowledge in any field.
What has been most important to me – I truly don’t think you can find a better place when it comes to truly experience the student life. Kraków is a great city, full of the energy of youth, strong communities, and immense opportunities – and the best access to it is on AGH campus, where everything is condensed and easily accessible.
AGH can offer everything a young student can expect… and so much more! Totally recommend to anyone looking for a place to start their adventure with higher education.
