More information 


The graduates will possess the broad knowledge and skills in the manufacturing technologies like casting, metalworking, heat treatment, surface engineering and others. Thanks to that they will find the job in various automotive-oriented companies all around the world. The SUT is located near the Katowice Special Economic Zone where operate tens of such companies. There is still lack of engineers in the fields covered by this study. Several well-known automotive industry suppliers like Cosma Casting, Teksid Iron Poland, Brembo, Nemak Poland, Ficosa and others as well as cars producers (mostly GM Poland in Gliwice) offer a lot of opportunities for students to develop their skills during the study and then very attractive workplaces.

Presentation of specialisation

If you are interested in the most modern knowledge and skills inside the materials designing and manufacturing technologies focused on the automotive industry, this offer is for you! The recruited students will be the participants of the EU co-financed project, so lot of additional benefits will appear for example: Polish language intensive course for foreigners, English intensive course if necessary, cultural and touristic activities, summer school and many others. For students from abroad there is a Ministry stipend offered to cover the accommodation and living expenses high enough to manage stay in Poland.
