Wroclaw University of Technology (WUT)
Wroclaw University of Technology (WUT) was founded in 1945. After the second world war a group of professors from the famous 160 years old University and the Technical University in Lvov arrived in Wroclaw. In the destroyed buildings of Technische Hochschule Breslau, which had existed since 1910, they started the Polish academic society.
