For years 2010-2012 I received a scholarship from The European Union in The Human Capital Program. Additionally, in 2011 I obtained a research grant from The Polish Ministry of Science.


Wroclaw University of Technology is one of the best technical universities in Poland – over 32 000 students study here under the guidance of 2 000 academic teachers, at the 12 faculties and the Department of Fundamental Studies, as well as in the 4 regional branches. Recently, it has been announced the best technical university in Poland for the second consecutive time in the oldest Polish ranking of higher education schools carried out by the “Wprost” magazine (in 2006 and 2007). Wroclaw University of Technology appears as the capital of Polish computer science. This is because of the European level of teaching and research run by the university employees. Their achievements are recognised not only in Poland but also abroad.
