On 28 January 2019 the new building of the Department of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunications of AGH (University of Mining and Metallurgy) was officially opened. The investment was carried out by Mostostal Warszawa.

The ceremony was attended by Jarosław Gowin, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Science and Higher Education, Jadwiga Emilewicz, Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology, prof.

- In the over seventy years of experience of Mostostal Warszawa, is included the implementation of many of the most important buildings, also located in Krakow. The Faculty of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunications is another AGH investment implemented by us in recent years. We've already built two prestigious scientific and didactic facilities in the Czarnowiejska st.: the Information Technology Center and the Power Center, the supercomputer center Cyfronet and the renovation of the "Babylon" dormitory. Each of our projects was realized primarily thanks to the highly qualified and committed team of the best engineers - said Jacek Szymanek during the ceremony.

The new building of the Faculty of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunications of AGH will serve over 2000 students who will learn and conduct research here. The usable area of the building is over 2000 m2, located at Czarnowiejska st. in the place of nineteenth-century buildings. On four floors there are didactic, laboratory, office, conference and technical rooms. Mostostal Warszawa, in addition to building the headquarters of the Department, made the development of the plot, and rebuilt the rooms on the third floor adjacent to the investment of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics. The scope of works also included the construction of external installations: sanitary and rainwater sewage, water supply, electricity, teletechnical and heating.

- Thanks to new laboratories, AGH students will have the opportunity to provide practical training on modern equipment. We believe that thanks to this their achievements and ideas will be even more appreciated in Europe and in the world - said Jarosław Gowin.

Currently, Mostostal Warszawa is building a new science and laboratory facility, which will be used by the following departments: Oil and Gas Drilling and Electrical Engineering, Automation, Information Technology and Biomedical Engineering.
