University Strategy


The West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin established with the decision of the Sejm of the Republic of Poland on 1st January 2009, took over the heritage of two universities creating the foundations of higher education in West Pomerania - the Szczecin University of Technology (established in 1946) and the University of Agriculture (established in 1954).

The Development Strategy of the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin indicates the directions of university development for the years 2011-2020 in the basic areas of activity so as to prepare it for changes resulting from new challenges set by the external environment and internal conditions, including: improvement of methods, outcomes and quality of education, the need to develop innovative scientific research and the challenges resulting from changes in the regional, national and world economy. It also constitutes a basis for undertaking actions within the scope of development and transformations of the infrastructure.

The document was prepared by the Committee for University Development Strategy composed of representatives of various organisational units and administration departments. The process of its creation included consultations with the current university authorities, the Chancellor and the Bursar. The Strategy was adopted by the Senate on 27th June 2011.

I am convinced that implementation of the provisions of the strategy will enable the University to meet many difficult challenges faced by the entire Polish higher education system: financial and demographic shortages, domestic and foreign competition.

Implementation of the established objectives will contribute to an improvement in the functioning of the University and increasing of its rank in all areas of activity.
