Currently, at the Faculty educates about 3500 students at Eng or MSc Eng levels, and doctoral studies.
The ETI Faculty has had the highest category in scientific research since 1992. This is at present category A, according to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education classification system. The Faculty’s scientific activities are diverse and the main areas of research are analogous to the subjects taught to students.
The Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics is one of the largest Faculties of the Gdańsk University of Technology. It consists of 16 departments and with over 3500 students enrolled at undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level studies. Altogether, the Faculty’s Departments employ:

- 30 doctors with habilitation (DSc)
- 124 doctors (PhD)
- approx. 141 masters (MSc)
The staff quality and quantity fulfills requirements for the Faculty to grant doctoral degrees in five disciplines: electronics, telecommunications, informatics, control engineering & robotics and biocybernetics & biomedical engineering, as well as habilitation degrees in three disciplines: electronics, telecommunications and informatics. The Faculty also runs doctoral studies in each of these disciplines.
The Faculty’s research activity is broad and diverse, andcovers practically all modern ICT technologies, including:
- computer science and computer engineering
- wireless and mobile technologies
- audio- and hydroacoustics
- microwave theory and technology;
- theory and technology of control engineering and robotics;
- computer-controlled electronic systems;

- and many others.
Detailed information on specific research areas and achievements can be found on the Departments’ web sites at http://eti.pg.edu.pl/departments and in http://eti.pg.edu.pl/documents/10653/25094829/Innovative%20Technologies.pdf.
ETI participates in many top priority homeland and foreign research programmes. Among them there are projects carried out as part of EU Framework Programmes .
Numerous implementations of research results, cooperation with many Polish and foreign scientific institutions as well as a substantial number of governmental research grants and contractual commissions are all proofs of intense scientific activity of the Faculty’s staff. A tangible effect of this activity is exemplified in numerous publications, the quantity of which stays at high level in recent years and amounts to at least 500 a year. One third of this amount are publications in prestigous international journals. For research publications the Faculty staff have been granted numerous distinctions. The list ETI TOP-10A comprises ten most frequently cited papers in the world, and the ETI TOP-10B covers ten best-known books. The "habilitations" list (in Polish), correspondingly, is a chronological register of all habilitation conferment procedures carried out at the ETI Faculty. A list of persons (in Polish) who have been granted the title of professor of technical sciences can be found on http://eti.pg.edu.pl/nadane-tytuly
