Faculty of Engineering Management
The Faculty of Engineering Management at the Poznan University of Technology continues the traditions and good practices of industry and management organizations initiated before World War II by such Polish engineers as Karol Adamiecki, Piotr Drzewiecki, Edwin Hauswald and Zygmunt Rytel. Currently, three institutes operate within the Faculty's structure: Institute of Safety and Quality Engineering, Institute of Logistics and Institute of Management and Information Systems. Each of the Institutes takes care of one field of study - Safety Engineering, Logistics and Management Engineering, respectively. In addition to teaching, research and cooperation with the economy are being conducted. In 2019, in the Rzeczpospolita ranking, the Faculty of Management Engineering was ranked #1 in Poland among technical universities conducting economic faculties.
The Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Management is dr hab. Eng. Magdalena Wyrwicka from PUT.
The mission of the Faculty is to generate new knowledge by creatively combining engineering sciences with management sciences and training in logistics, security engineering and management engineering, also in a continuous mode, in connection with scientific research and development works carried out in cooperation with the labour market, in the aspect of sustainable development.
The vision is to build the Faculty of Engineering Management brand as a valued team of competent experts and an important research and didactic unit of the Poznan University of Technology, recognizable in the country and abroad, a sought-after partner in research and development and didactic undertakings, guaranteeing a high scientific level and quality of education.
According to the categorization carried out in 2018 by the Committee for the Evaluation of Scientific Units, the Faculty - by decision of the Minister of Science and Higher Education - received category A, which is proof of, among others, very good level of scientific achievements, in particular publications, scientific potential, material effects of scientific activities (financial effects, application of research results), the impact of scientific activities on the functioning of society and the economy.
Education at the Faculty of Engineering Management is conducted in the field of social sciences, in the discipline of management and quality science. In the didactic offer adapted to the domestic and international labour market, the Faculty implements engineering and master's studies (full-time and part-time) in the fields of Engineering Management, Logistics and Security Engineering, as well as full-time studies conducted in English: Management Engineering on the 1st and 2nd cycle - Managing Enterprise of the Future and on the 2nd cycle Logistics Systems. The education meets the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, as evidenced by the quality management system adopted by the Faculty and certified since 2010 (recently by the TÜV SÜD unit).
The Faculty of Engineering Management won first place in the LOGISTICS Study Course Ranking prepared as part of the Jubilee 20th. University Ranking „Perspectives 2019”, and took third place in 2018 in the Engineering Studies Ranking - „Perspectives 2018”, developed for technical universities. The content of education implemented in the field of Logistics is in accordance with the logistics training program recommended by ELA (European Logistics Association) at the level of European Senior Logistician.
In addition to the scope of education, the Faculty also offers Postgraduate Studies and training, e.g. enabling obtaining the Quality Management System certificate for internal auditor according to IS0 9001:2015 as well as the Occupational Health and Safety Management System certificate according to ISO 45001:2018.

Students of the Faculty operate within scientific circles (as of the end of 2019 - 7), student organizations and are actively involved in the work of the PUT Student Union. This is a good way to practice not only teamwork, but also the acquisition of organizational skills.
As part of international cooperation, the Faculty of Engineering Management participates in the ERASMUS+ program, in the exchange with China and Peru as well as in the international exchange of students of technical universities within IAESTE program. It also participates in the work of the European Students' Association of Industrial Engineering and Management ESTIEM.
