Both first and second cycle degree programme students may expand their interests in the activities of student scientific organizations and they can actively participate in student contests in the country and abroad.

The faculty is prepared to conduct activities of the full – time programmes in the English language. At present, abroad students who are studying at our university under the auspices of international student scholarship exchange programme Erasmus+ are having classes presented in the English language. Numerous students of the construction department undertake a semester or even a year at one of 150 partner universities abroad under the auspices of scholarship exchange Erasmus+ each year.

A positive assessment granted by the Polish Accreditation Committee to the faculty guarantees a high quality level of education.
