The Smart Technology Expert Courses (SMART-TECH)established at IPPT PAN
started its didactic activity from 1st October 2002. Since 2010, the Courses have been incorporated into the Doctoral Studies of IPPT PAN.
The SMART-TECH Expert Courses is intended to function as a pioneer solution, allowing for flexible
adaptation of the program to up-to-date needs of the European Hi-Tech area. Growing demand for
well-educated specialists in this field has been observed in recent years. The concept of
an individual education program for each student, started by a technical university in co-operation
with IPPT PAN during M.Sc. studies and then continued by the SMART-TECH Expert
Courses and participation in a research project (carried out jointly with a future employer),
is believed to be an effective way of post-graduate education.
- The program of the SMART-TECH Expert Courses is composed of two semesters of lectures and classes (approx. 6 blocks ×
30 hours) and 1 semester devoted to participation in a research project.
- The SMART-TECH Expert Courses have an international character and the lectures are given in English if needed.
