Bialystok University of Technology

mapa kampusu PBIs the biggest technical university in north-eastern of Poland which was established in 1949 and has a long tradition of educating engineers and young scientists. Now we have nearly 8,500 students and 660 teachers – experts in their fields. Bialystok University of Technology has 6 Faculties (Departments): Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Computer Science, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering Management.



Bialystok is the largest city in northeastern Poland and the capital of the Podlaskie Voivodeship. Białystok is the tenth-largest city in Poland, second in terms of population density, and thirteenth in area.

Białystok is located in the Białystok Uplands of the Podlaskie Plain on the banks of the Biała River. It has historically attracted migrants from elsewhere in Poland and beyond, particularly from Central and Eastern Europe. This is facilitated by the nearby border with Belarus also being the eastern border of the European Union, as well as the Schengen Area. The city and its adjacent municipalities constitute Metropolitan Białystok. The city has a warm summer continental climate, characterized by warm summers and long frosty winters. Forests are an important part of Białystok’s character, and occupy around 1,756 ha (4,340 acres) (17.2% of the administrative area of the city) which places it as the fifth-most forested city in Poland.

The first settlers arrived in the 14th century. A town grew up and received its municipal charter in 1692. Białystok has traditionally been one of the leading centers of academic, cultural, and artistic life in Podlachia and the most important economic center in northeastern Poland.
