In the 90-year-long tradition of the Faculty, thousands of engineers graduated from it, and they have creatively used their knowledge in engineering work, as well as in research work in Poland and abroad.
Scientific research conducted at the Faculty concentrates on the following fields: durability of materials and buildings structures, special concrete technologies, aspects of sustainable development in civil engineering, design and implementation of modern water- and chemically-proof insulations, energy audits and certificates, design, diagnostics and reinforcement of structures.
The Faculty cooperates with many foreign universities, including the University of Michigan in the USA, Gedymin University of Technology in Vilnius, Moscow Academy of Civil Engineering and the Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture in Dnieptropietrovsk, Liege University, Technical University (RWTH) in Aachen, Leuven Catholic University, Lubljana Research Institute (IRMA) and the Institute of Technology and Norms (NIST) in Gaithensburg.
