Bialystok University of Technology (Polish: Politechnika Białostocka) is a technical university in Bialystok, Poland. [1]

The history of the university starts on December 1, 1949. Initially it was a technical college – the Private Evening College of Engineering in Białystok (Polish: Prywatna Wieczorowa Szkoła Inżynierska NOT w Białymstoku), founded by the Polish Federation of Engineering Associations. It had two faculties: Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. In 1964 it was permitted to carry out daytime education and renamed to the High School of Engineering (Wyższa Szkoła Inżynierska). In 1974 it was granted the status of a Technical University with 4 faculties and 3 inter-faculty departments.[2]
