Thanks to students’ initiative, at Wrocław University of Technology in each faculty there are numerous scientific circles. They attract students who would like to extend their knowledge in a particular field and gain experience within research projects at the university. Students have an opportunity to test their skills, develop original projects or put their ideas to life. Some of these ideas may sound astounding like for example constructing a plane which meets the parameters indicated by the organisers of the Aero Design Competition and should carry the heaviest possible load or constructing a Formula 1 car which was used by the PWR Racing Team on the circuit in Silverstone. They have an opportunity to meet interesting people and share their interests and views with them during debates, discussions and trainings, conferences and research camps.
