Achievements summary



Born in 1957. Graduated in 1981 at the Faculty of Precision Mechanics of Warsaw University of Technology. After military service, in 1982 employed at the Institute of Design of Precision and Optical Instruments (presently Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics) as a research and teaching assistant lecturer. In 1995 completed his doctoral thesis “Effect of test method on determined performance characteristics of the DC micromotor” and then, in 1996 took up a post as an assistant professor at the Division of Design of Precision Devices. His professional interests are focused on research and modelling of actuators of mechatronic devices. Two related grants were completed under his guidance. The first, of research kind, was aimed at development of thermal models of electric micromotors. The second realised in cooperation with “Mikroma” company covered design and industrial implementation of linear actuators with hybrid stepping motors. Dr. J. Wierciak is an author and co-author of over 100 papers published in the conference proceedings and scientific journals, as well as 6 patents. Teaching courses provided by dr. Wierciak are connected to: electromechanical drive systems as well as design and modelling of mechatronic systems. Majority of the courses are the original contribution of the author. He has supervised 33 BSc and 50 MSc theses. As a member of the Faculty Commission for Educational Affairs took a part in preparation of new, three level teaching curricula. In the years 2008–2015 he was the supervisor of the didactic specialization “Micromechanics”. Dr. J. Wierciak has won 5 awards of the Rector of Warsaw University of Technology for achievements in scientific and didactic work as well as the scientific prize of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland for participation in works on the sustainable transport system and personal mobility “ECO-Mobility – Prometheus”. In 2001, he was awarded the Silver Cross of Merit, including for restructuring activities at the Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics in 1996–1999, when he was the deputy director of the Institute for General Affairs. In 2017, he received the Medal of the National Education Commission for achievements in developing education programs and in teaching activities.
