Cooperative Learning Initiated with Warsaw University of Technology

Cooperati ve learning initiated with Warsaw Uni versity

In June, the university hosted a delegation from Poland's Warsaw University of Technology and committed to further cooperation.

The agreement outlined student and faculty exchanges, long distance learning opportunities and joint educational and research projects. Above, WUT's Rector Wlodzimierz Kurnik (lower left) and UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman signed the document during discussions with WUT's Vice-Rector for Research Tadeusz Kulik and Nebraska Engineering Dean David Allen.

The ceremony was attended by Barbara Couture, senior vice chancellor of Academic Affairs; Prem Paul, vice chancellor for research; Peter Levitov, associate dean of international affairs; David Allen, dean of engineering; and Maria Kaszynska, a visiting scholar from Poland.

Rectors Kurnik and Kulik discussed specifics with Allen and chairs and faculty members from the mechanical engineering and engineering mechanics departments. The Polish leaders also greeted UNL doctoral students from Poland.

The UNL-WUT program in Lincoln is coordinated by Andrzej Nowak, professor of civil engineering. Warsaw University of Technology is the largest academic school of technology in Poland, with 2,000 professors and 31,000 students. WUT began in 1826 as the Warsaw Institute of Technology.
