Bialystok University of Technology was visited by 50 guests representing 31 universities from 23 countries: Albania, Algeria, Armenia, Belarus, Bhutan, Brazil, China, Egypt, Georgia, Guatemala, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Cuba, Malaysia, Morocco, Moldavia, Nepal, Serbia, Taiwan, Tunisia, Ukraine and Vietnam. They all took part in the International Training Week organised by the BUT International Relations Office.

Associate Prof. Marta Kosior-Kazberuk, DSc, PhD, Eng, Vice-Rector for Education and International Cooperation, said ‘The International Training Week is a great opportunity to meet many of our partners – representatives of institutions of higher education from non-European Union countries – in the same place and at the same time. We are happy that so many of them had accepted our invitation to visit Bialystok. Last year we had  37 guests and today this number has increased to 50. I am glad that our Technical University has partners in so many countries and I hope that we will come up with many new ideas for joint international projects during their stay in our town.

On 15 May, Prof. Lech Dzienis, BUT Rector, officially greeted the participants of the International Training Week at Bialystok University of Technology and wished everybody a nice and fruitful stay in Bialystok. ‘I hope that – when you get to know our university and region  better – you will become ambassadors of Bialystok University of Technology in your countries, in a sense. I believe that our meeting is the first step toward undertaking further initiatives: joint research projects as well as student and staff exchange’, said Prof. Dzienis.

During the International Training Week, our guests visited Bialystok and the nearby areas, got to know Polish customs and the Podlachian regional cuisine, and also presented their universities.
