The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the Lublin University of Technology was created in 1964, still in the Evening School of Engineering. In 1965, the Evening School of Engineering was transformed into a Higher School of Engineering, and from that moment the Faculty began training full-time students, and from the academic year 1973-1974 it offered uniform Master of Engineering studies.
Currently the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science educates students in two directions, i.e. electrical engineering and since 2000 also information technology. Electrical engineering offers three specialisations: electrical power, processing and use of electricity, and engineering applications of computers. Computer science subsumes six disciplines: ICT systems and computer networks, software engineering and database systems, computer graphics and multimedia, administration and security of information systems, industrial information systems, and electronic economy tools.
The Faculty has a strong position in the country and a good reputation in the region, as evidenced by the constant cooperation with industry, economic organisations and the universities of Lublin. The Faculty staff also belong to a number of outfits, where they often perform managerial functions. They are members of the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Committee on Electrical Engineering, in particular of its Section of Great Power and High Voltage and Section of Electrical Power Systems, or of the Section on Optoelectronics of the Electronics and Telecommunications Committee.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the Lublin University of Technology is also very active in research in its two nominal disciplines, both at home and abroad.
