The Faculty of Foundry Engineering was established in the academic year 1951/1952 by the act of splitting up the Faculty of Metallurgy. In line with the Faculty's profile, there were two specializations: foundry technology, and foundry machines and mechanisation. At present, the Faculty is entitled to confer the academic degrees of Doctor, Senior Doctor (habilitation), and Professor. The Faculty educates specialists in the field of foundry technology, and is the only faculty of this kind and scope of education operating within the structure of the higher education system in Poland and Europe. Modern foundry technology mainly strives for the improvement of casting production quality, reduced consumption of energy and raw materials (lean processes and lean production), improved processes and product economy, and, last but not least, reducing the harmful effect of the foundry industry on the environment. The idea of constructing and operating a waste-free foundry plant is nowadays the main subject of largescale international research projects. Graduates of the Faculty are well prepared to face the challenges of modern industry. They possess skills and capabilities necessary to develop and implement new, advanced technologies, and to undertake management challenges of modern industrial enterprises. Therefore, they are also highly valued in other countries (for example, in Germany, where the demand for foundry specialists is very strong). Students of the Faculty also have a possibility to obtain a double diploma - one of AGH UST, and one of a foreign university. In 2011 - with the help of the Faculty of Metals Engineering and Industrial Computer Science - a new, interdisciplinary field of studies called VIRTOTECHNOLOGY was introduced. Graduates in this discipline will gain knowledge and practical skills with regard to the processing of metals, materials technology, computer science, economics, and ecology. They will demonstrate creative attitude towards issues related to virtualization processes and the professional use of computer tools for the purpose of processing technological problems. The Faculty maintains permanent contact with foundry enterprises, organises training courses for students, as well offers post-graduate scholarships for those who have successfully completed their studies. Members of the Faculty staff maintain relations with numerous scientific and research centres, universities, research institutes, and industry. A map of the location of foundries and enterprises with which the Faculty of Foundry Engineering has been cooperating covers practically the whole area of Poland.
