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.
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 🙂
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.
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.
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.
I am studying at this university for 3 years now and what I can tell you from current perspective is that it was a very good choice! The classes are on a pretty high level, it depends of course on the lecturer. What definitely could be improved is the content of the classes which is often outdated. There is a lot of individual work during the initial few semesters but fortunately, later on, it is replaced by group projects which give the students opportunity to learn how to work in a team. But what I value the most about AGH is the community of students and its relation with university authorities. AGH is the unique place where you can find dozens of students organisations, science clubs and other environments where you can develop your skills the way you want. The university supports those groups actively which results in having one of the most numerous and divergent students’ community. If you are looking for the university with a decent level of education, practical approach to the things you’re learning and an exceptional students’ environment then it will be a good choice for you!
Let me describe it in pluses and minuses, from my personal experience:
+ Amazing students’ organizations, vibrant student life on campus
+ If you are interested to grow, there are countless possibilities to get engaged. For example in my faculty you can conduct part of your research in Tokyo, Japan; you can also apply to a masters program with Inno Energy, get the double diploma from university in Lisbon, and additional scholarship of 800 euro
+ In my Faculty of Energy and Fuels, really interesting research is being done, and there are options to write exciting bachelor/masters thesis
+ Campus is being invested into, and new buildings are raising every year. Some laboratories and facilities are really state-of-the-art
– There are cool options for exchanges, students’ initiatives, but it’s not easy to get to know about them. Sometimes it may seem that they lack promotion or are on purpose hidden by those who know about them but don’t want to lose their privilege
– I am generally disappointed by the level in my particular course; by that I mean that there are many students with extremely low knowledge, but they somehow always pass
– The atmosphere on studies is slightly demotivating; people tend to complain about everything, and few are actually interested in what they study. But it can be overcome by getting engaged in students’ organizations and clubs.
Fields of study: Any engineer-to-be can find a proper area for him or her. There is a great variety of them and they are well described and presented in AGH. Some of the courses are held in English but the whole vision of studying in a foreign language should be improved and adjusted to new trends.
Opportunities for students: There are a lot of student clubs and organizations, a high number of events that improve students’ soft and hard skills as well as those which are just pure entertainment.
Location: All the buildings of the university are in the same place which is very convenient. AGH dorms are right next to the university, so students don’t lose their time on transportation. The whole area of dorms is called Miasteczko Studenckie and this is one of the most exciting spots on the map of Kraków. The main building of AGH is a 15 minute walk from the city centre (Main Square), the most famous and prestigious place in Kraków.
I have really good memories from my University degree in ESADE. I think it really prepares you to perform in several different roles in company. It allows you to have strategic thinking ...
I think the best thing about CAL was not always the Profs (although I had some good ones), but the caliber of my fellow students. I am very proud to have studied at CAL, that and working ...
