Business - Innovations - Technology (BIT of WUT)

We are proud to present the intellectual potential of WUT’s students, graduates and employees in the new folder entitled “Business - Innovations – Technology”

Warsaw University of Technology has researchers working on a range of scientific topics which are explored in different areas and on different scale. Often the outcome of these helps with development of new technologies or everyday products to come into being.

Here we would like to present the diversity of topics which are of interest to WUT’s researchers.

What can you do with data taken from official announcements, information about movement of public transport vehicles, data from mobile networks or cameras? This is what preoccupies members of the VaVeL project, financed from the EU program Horizon 2020. The Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science (MiNI) of the Warsaw University of Technology is one of the partners of the project.

Artificial blood vessels or how to help patients with ischaemic heart disease

A team directed by dr inż. Beata Butruk-Raszeja (PhD Eng) of the Faculty of Chemistry and Process Engineering of Warsaw University of Technology is working on coronary prostheses. “We want them to be able to replace impaired vessels,” explains the researcher. Data on cardiovascular diseases has been appalling for years. 

Renewable energy in practice – our students through to the finals

A team of the Non-Conventional Energy Student Research Group has been qualified for the finals of the international competition, EDPR University Challenge, in Poland. “We have worked on the practical application of renewable energy in public transport,” explains Monika Lis, the project coordinator.

Building faster, more cheaply and without mistakes

New technologies are not commonly used in the construction industry yet, but students from the BIMgo Student Research Group, which operates within the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology, want to change this. They use their knowledge and passion to develop a non-standard model of a non-standard energy-efficient single-family house.

Syrena Sport – Poland’s automotive icon

It was more than half a century ago that the Warsaw-based Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych (“FSO”, the now non-existent Passenger Automobile Factory) saw the birth of a prototype of the car which has mesmerized thousands until this day. One of the key people on the team working on the Syrena Sport sports car was Cezary Nawrot, a graduate of the Warsaw University of Technology. 

Designing your house like in a computer game

An off-the-shelf design or a bespoke solution in collaboration with an architect; if you dream of your own house, well, those are your two options. But what if you could plan yourself how your dream house would look like, a bit like playing a computer game? Is it at all possible? Krystian Kwieciński, a Ph.D. student of the Faculty of Architecture, Warsaw University of Technology, is going to find out.
