Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology
The faculty was founded as the Faculty of Chemistry in 1966. It was established due to the raising demand for highly-qualified engineers for rapidly developing chemical industry in southern Poland. In 1990, the faculty was renamed as the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology to emphasise the education of students and conducting research in the field of chemical engineering and technology. Currently, the students of the Faculty may enrol at five different programmes: Chemical Technology, Chemical and Process Engineering, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials, and, since 2015, Construction Chemistry. The Faculty can award doctorate degrees within the field of technical sciences in the chemical technology and chemical engineering disciplines and within the field of chemical sciences in the chemistry discipline. In 2011 by the decision of Centralna Komisja do Spraw Stopni i Tytułów (the Central Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles), the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology can award the habilitation degree within the field of technical sciences in chemical technology.
