Internationalisation is a strategic goal of Lodz University of Technology, therefore we continue to expand the group of partner institutions from all over the world.
The University has a 30-year tradition of teaching in foreign languages, which is coordinated by the renowned International Faculty of Engineering. At IFE, students can pursue courses which are run in English or French. Selected fields of study in English are also provided by the faculties of Lodz University of Technology.
Every year about 1,000 foreign students study at Lodz University of Technology, both full-time and under exchange programmes. TUL students have the opportunity to be awarded double diplomas under partnership agreements with universities in France, Germany, China, Russia or Italy.
Lodz University of Technology is a leader in student mobility. It offers mobility for part of studies or internships under numerous international programmes. This is possible as a result of close and fruitful cooperation between TUL and universities from all over the world. The high number of partnerships confirms this - approximately 400 (agreements within the Erasmus+ programme, as well as cooperation agreements). Details can be found on the ICC website.
TUL is among the top universities in student exchanges under the Erasmus+ programme and is a proud holder of the title 'Mobility Friendly University'. It is also the leader in terms of the number of students going on long-term foreign summer internships under the IAESTE programme. Doctoral students at TUL also participate in bilateral exchanges abroad.
Internationalisation of education at Lodz University of Technology also takes place through academic exchange of teaching and administrative staff. The constantly developed competences of the staff increase the quality of the education process and other education-related activities. More information on this subject can be found on ICC website.
TUL is involved in many educational projects in cooperation with foreign partners.
The International Educational Projects section within the International Cooperation Centre coordinates the application process and implementation of projects under programmes such as Erasmus+, the Visegrad Fund, CEEPUS, NAWA programmes and others. More information is available on website.
In 2017, IFE in collaboration with the French Embassy in Poland and the International Association Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) launched the prestigious and long-term project - French Academy of Young Engineers (FAMI), involving young people in international projects based on modern technologies and social challenges. Lodz University of Technology is a member of the European Association for Engineering Education, which addresses the problem of engineering education in Europe. An important aspect of raising the quality of education in individual study programs offered at TUL is their international accreditation which, apart from quality certification of a given program, allows for its improvement according to the highest world standards. As part of international program accreditations, Lodz University of Technology has begun 23 ENAEE program accreditations (European Network for Engineering Accreditation), 2 ABET program accreditations (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology), 3 ECTN program accreditations (European Chemistry Thematic Network).
In the field of institutional accreditation, the high quality of foreign language teaching and the TUL's commitment to the qualitative development of language competences have been confirmed by the international accreditation EAQUALS (European Association for Quality Language Services) granted to the TUL Language Centre. TUL, as the only university in Poland, has been awarded the French institutional accreditation HCERES. In 2019, TUL also underwent an evaluation process under the EUA Institutional Evaluation Programme. Lodz University of Technology has also begun the ACEEU accreditation procedure (Accreditation for Entrepreneurial and Engaged Universities) and the CEEMAN accreditation for the Faculty of Organisation and Management.
