Works on university improve its facilities and academic standards
The modernisation of the Kiecle University of Technology has improved working conditions for staff and students, while transforming the establishment into an inter–national hub for science.
The investment saw four new teaching buildings and four laboratories being constructed. These new constructions are connected to the existing university, easing access for both students and staff. In addition, a new multi-purpose lecture auditorium was built with a capacity of 600.
The laboratories main focus is on science and research and to this end, the university has established close ties with various specialist institutions in the Świętokrzyskie region. These include the Laboratory of Computer Measurements of Geometric Figures, the Laboratory of Concrete Structures and Diagnosis Engineering Facilities, and the Centre for Laser Technology of Metals.
As a result of the project and the valuable partnerships with the aforementioned institutions, university students specialising in technical subjects can learn a great deal about European standards, while experiencing real world conditions in addition to their classes.
The new facilities also mean better working conditions and this upgrade has in fact seen new lecturers wanting to work at the university. The improved infrastructure has also helped to attract international students and facilitate the development of international relations. The same can be said of the scientific centre, which is now able to provide research facilities for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the region.
