Gdańsk University of Technology is the oldest technical university in northern Poland. It began as the Royal Gdańsk University of Technology (Königliche Technische Hochschule zu Danzig) at the beginning of the 20th century. The ceremonial inauguration of the first academic year took place on October 6, 1904. At the beginning, there were 6 faculties with about 600 students. Designed by Albert Carsten’s team modern complex of university buildings was not only architecturally interesting, but also self-sufficient. The Machine Hall with a characteristic water tower located on the campus was used not only for didactic purposes but also to supply the entire university with water, heat and electricity. The historic building complex of the Gdańsk University of Technology was included in the 10 most beautiful campuses in Europe in the The Times Higher Education ranking published in January 2018.
