June 23 is the International Day of Women in Engineering. This celebration was initiated in 2014 by the Women's Engineering Society (established in London in 1919). On such an occasion, it is worth getting to know the engineers working at Lodz University of Technology, where you can conduct research in 12 disciplines. Among them are 4 engineering disciplines: chemical, land, materials and mechanical.
Lodz University of Technology is one of fourteen universities affiliated with the European Consortium of Innovative Universities. Membership in this elite network opens up new opportunities for the TUL academic community. These include participation in international and interdisciplinary research groups and mobility related to scientific and teaching development.
For me as a technical physicist, it is also fascinating to see how various physical phenomena can be used to construct devices without which we cannot imagine the modern world, says Michał Szmigielski, MSc, a doctoral student at Interdisciplinary Doctoral School. He studies liquid crystals used, among other things, in the latest displays.
" (...) I am convinced that anyone who wants to deal with mathematics will find something in it that interests them". - says Adam Błoch, M.Sc., a doctoral candidate and mathematics enthusiast who is preparing his thesis in this discipline.
Will the same washing powder bought in Poland and Germany wash the same amount of stains? Researchers carrying out the Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain for Product Quality and Safety System (SALUS) project will help answer this question. The work is led by Assoc. Prof. Aneta Poniszewska-Marańda, at TUL.
Artificial intelligence is a tool that offers almost unlimited possibilities. It is as much an opportunity for development as it is a threat, as Kacper Kubicki, M.Sc., says. He is pursuing his doctoral thesis in the discipline of information and communication technology.
Tomatoes are one of the most popular vegetables in the world, so optimal growing conditions are of great importance. In view of the increasing demand for edible plants and environmental changes, work in the field of food technology and nutrition is badly needed. Katarzyna Włodarczyk, M.Sc., is conducting her research in this area.
Not everyone is aware that chemistry - although difficult - is omnipresent in our lives. We deal with it everywhere, and those who recognised this early on became passionate about it. This group includes Aleksandra Topolska, M.Sc., who is pursuing her doctoral thesis in the area of chemical sciences at the Interdisciplinary Doctoral School at TUL.
Safety is a key issue in the construction industry. The responsibility of constructors for the buildings they commission requires sound theoretical knowledge reinforced by experience gained on site. This two-pronged approach benefits both theory and practice, and is led by Rafal Bredow, M.Sc.
The Interdisciplinary Doctoral School at TUL offers training in 12 scientific disciplines. It is a place to pursue research passions and develop your scientific career. As part of the STER programme, the series "Steer your future with IDS" is being launched, in which you will be able to get to know the Doctoral School of Lodz University of Technology better and learn more about the inspiring stories of doctoral candidates.
Lodz University of Technology and the Medical University of Lodz conduct many collaborative projects and research, which is why the rectors of the two universities resolved last year to formally recognize these shared efforts. They announced a competition for the best publication co-authored by scientists from TUL and UMed. Now scientists have been invited to participate in the second edition of the competition.
Research aimed at effective cancer treatment is conducted by specialists in many fields. This is also the aim of Katarzyna Wojtera, M.Sc., who is pursuing her doctorate in the discipline of automation, electronic and electrical engineering and space technology, at the Interdisciplinary Doctoral School.
"When it reaches an IQ of 100 or 150, there will be no problem. But when a 1000 or 10,000, what then? This could be humanity's greatest achievement. But at the same time its end," this is what Stephen Hawking said about artificial intelligence. It is undoubtedly one of the fastest growing branches of computer science, and at the same time a very interesting topic of scientific research. Prof. Anna Fabijanska (Hirsh Index 14, about 900 citations, professorship at 39) uses artificial intelligence to analyse digital images, among other things.
