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.
Engineering is the creative application of science, mathematical methods, and empirical evidence to the innovation, design, construction, operation and maintenance of structures, machines, materials, devices, systems, processes, and organizations. The discipline of engineering encompasses a broad range of more specialized fields of engineering, each with a more specific emphasis on particular areas of applied mathematics, applied science, and types of application. See glossary of engineering.

Engineers should press forward with development to meet the diversified needs of people
Harold Chestnut (1981) attributed in: Dr. Harold Chestnut: 1981 Honda Prize Laureate in: Honda Prize Ecotechnology Quote
Incorrigible humanity, therefore, led astray by the giant Nimrod, presumed in its heart to outdo in skill not only nature but the source of its own nature, who is God; and began to build a tower in Sennaar, which afterwards was called Babel (that is, 'confusion'). By this means human beings hoped to climb up to heaven, intending in their foolishness not to equal but to excel their creator.
Dante Alighieri, De vulgari eloquentia, Chapter VII
Engineering is the art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man.
Thomas Tredgold (1828), used in the Royal Charter of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) published in: The Times, London, article CS102127326, 30 June 1828.
