My dear young friends ,

    education does not know any state boundaries , neither it knows any
differences among nations, and within the globalization of labor markets
creates the best conditions for the students and graduates mobility. The
Technical University of Košice is the kind of College that has had
traditionally its doors open for all university students from the Slovak
Republic , but also from abroad . It is conditioned by the fact , that in its
offer of study branches and study programs at its eight faculties , besides
the standard technical, economical and art ones , there are also such ones ,
that are unique within Slovakia , and within the branches of metallurgical
and mining technologies , also unique in Europe .

   All the faculties and work places at the Technical University of Košice
are trying to keep pace with the development in education in the countries
of the European Union and create conditions for the students and
scientific-pedagogical workers mobility. The partnerships are oriented
especially on traditionally acknowledged universities in the states of
Middle and Eastern Europe . This purpose also serves the Association of
Carpathian Region Universities , in which the Technical University of
Košice is not only an active member but also its founder . On the other
side , the projects of the European Union in the field of university
education , science and research made it possible for the workers , but also
the students of our college to establish firm contacts with colleagues and
work places in the countries of Western Europe .

    The Košice-City and the surrounding region offer a lot of
opportunities for cultural, social and sport activities . Košice is a
multicultural city where all the visitors to it feel almost as good as at
home after a short period of time . It is conditioned not only by the fact
that Košice has had its long tradition but also due to the fact that it lies at
the crossroad of traditional business routs from the North to the South ,
and from the East to the West . People from many nationalities and
religious beliefs meet here . They are tolerant to each other and they
distinguish themselves with a typical Slovak attribute - the hospitality .

  My dear young friends , let me first invite you to spend and experience
some beautiful and pleasant days at our Technical University of Košice. I

would like to express my persuasion that your stay at the work places , in
laboratories , lecture halls, clubs and sport grounds will contribute to your
professional growth , as well as to gaining the persuasion that we are a
good guarantee of your professional growth and for many of you we will
become good partners and frank friends for many years .
 So welcome to Košice !

                              Juraj Sinay, DrSc.

   Košice, , with nearly 300.000 inhabitants, is the second largest
city in the Slovak Republic and an important economic, industrial and cultural
centre for Eastern Slovakia. It is home of the most important pillars of Slovak
industry, namely, US Steel Košice, the Constitutional Court, 5 universities, 4
theatres, 6 museums and a philharmonic.
   The city is situated near to the frontiers with Hungary (20 km) Ukraine (80
km) and Poland (120 km) and at a distance of about 400 km to the east of
Bratislava, the Capital of Slovakia.
   The city is located in the Košice Basin in the broad valley of the River
Hornád, bounded in the west by spurs of the mountains called Slovenské
Rudohorie. It covers 244 square kilometres, of which forest accounts for 30,8%
and agricultural land 38,1%.
   The centre of city lies at a height of 208 metres above sea-level. The climate
in Košice is mild with an average temperature of 27°C in July and –3°C in
January. The location of the city was a significant element of its development.
Today the city is characterised by its historical centre surrounded by new
housing areas. The city´s grouwth has absorbed formerly independent villages,
which still enjoy relative autonomy.
   The city of Košice is also the seat of the Košice – Region which covers 6 753
square kilometres and is home of 761 000 inhabitants (density of 112 persons
per sq. km). The region consists of 11 districts, including 4 districts in the city of
Košice and the Košice – countryside district which surrounds the city.
   The city is situated at the crossroad of transport routes of domestic and
international importance. The airport of Košice is located about 6 km from city
centre and it is used for passenger and cargo. Connections are available to
Bratislava and via Prague in Czech Republic to the main international airports.
   For the sports oriented, Košice offers various sports such as football,
basketball, golf, para-gliding, hockey, judo, mountaineering, and water polo.
Night birds can enjoy the many ethnic restaurants and discotheques in town.


   Košice’s rich history as a trading town during the Middle Ages has left it
with a multitude of beautiful buildings and monuments, many of which are
located on the main street (Hlavná ulica), which was originally a medieval
square. There is no historical document reffering to origin of settlement of
Košice. But it is evident that the territory was settled much earlier than it is
mentioned in the first written document dated from 1143. This document is

related to the benedictine Convent in Krásna nad Hornádom The first written
reference dates back to the year 1230 when the Hungarian King Andrew
resigned. It is supposed that in 1290 was Košice granted the right of autonomy
in jurisdiction and the right to built ramparts.
Under a privilage granted in 1324, Košice became a free royal city. Emperor
Louis I the Great granted Košice a coat of arms, the first city in Europe to
receive such a privilege. In 1347 Košice was granted further privilegies which
enjoyed till then only the inhabitants of Buda, so that Košice became the second
most important town in Hungary. Throughout the whole of the 14th and 15th
centuries Košice was an important name in long-distance trade and one of the
largest and richest cities in the whole of Hungary. This was also the period when
the city´s most beautiful historic buildings were erected.
   The first half of the 16th century is related to the battles between Ján Zápoľský
and Ferdinand Habsburg and battles with invanding Turks. In the 17 th century
uprisings of the estates /Bocskay, Bethlen, Rákoczi, Thököly / as well the
religious conflicts influenced negatively the development of the town.
    This decline of economy didn´t last too long. The development of industry
gave to Košice a new impulse especially in form of arising of industrial factories
and the construction of the railway line in 1870. In the second half of the 19th
century Košice was one of the most industrialized town in Hungary.

   The most valuable part of the town is the historical core with pedestrian zone
along the Main street proclaimed a historical town reserve.
Towering over the centre of the main square is the awe-inspiring gothic
Cathedral of St. Elizabeth (completed in 1508) the largest gothic cathedral in
Slovakia and the only one of its kind in Eastern Europe. This medieval
monument was built in the High Gothic style. North of the cathedral stands the
neo-baroque State Theatre (Štatne divadlo) built in 1899, and nestled between
the two is a fountain which dances to music in the afternoons and evenings.

 Places to visit in the historical centre:
- St. Elisabeth Cathedral
- The St.Michal´s Chapel
- Singing Fountain Park near the neo-Barogue theatre
- Statues known as the Immaculata
- Town Hall
- Jacab´s Palace
- The Universitarian Church
- The Dominican Church
- The Franciscan Church
- The bell called Urban
- The Slovak Technical Museum
- East Slovakian Museum- with the Košice Golden Treasure-trove

-   Mikluš Prison
-   Vojtech Löffler´s Museum
-   Museum of Aviation
-   Levoča House
-   Town Ramparts
-   East Slovak Gallery

The most attractive exhibition is undoubtedly the Golden Treasure of Košice
presenting the collection of coins from 15th to 17th centuries found by accident.
With its 2920 coins, 3 medals and a renaissance golden chain it constitutes the
second largest treasure of Slovakia. The exhibition on the goldsmith art presents
jewelry from the pre-guild period up to the current manufacturing and artshop
works representing the most important artistic craft of Slovakia.


   The Technical University of Košice (TUKE) was established in 1952, but its
history dates back to the Mining Academy in Banská Štiavnica established in
1762 by the Empress Maria Teresia. The content of education and research at
this Academy includes the entire complex of sciences from ore mining to metals
production and processing. Our university is proud of its connection with the
Academy which is proved by the fact that this is the only university in Slovakia
that has continued development in mining sciences to the present day. The
TUKE was established with the aim to serving the needs of Eastern Slovakia in
education and research.
   The transmission of knowledge - instruction in its broadest sense - continues
to be the University's central concern. The Technical University seeks to
maintain a cohesive and interdependent relationship between its teaching,
research, and service activities.
   The University has more than 12 000 Master´s and Bachelor´s degree
students, about 420 PhD students, 840 academic staff and 920 non-academic
staff members.
   The educational system is updated to the terms of the Bologna process, which
means a three-trier system starting with bachelor degree, up to the doctoral level,
including the implementation of the European model of the credit system used
for the evaluation of students´success that supports students´s mobility during
their study.

   At the present the Technical University of Košice has the following
  Faculty of Mining, Ecology, Process Control and Geotechnologies
  Faculty of Metallurgy
  Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
  Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics
  Faculty of Civil Engineering
  Faculty of Manufacturing Technologies

 Faculty of Aeronautics

   The mission of the Technical University is to prepare students for their
profession, for admission to advanced degree programs, for leadership in their
profession, and for lifelong learning. To achieve this goal, the facilities of the
entire university are available to students.
     The Technical University has educated over 30,000 graduates who have
contributed not only to the scientific and technological development of the
national industrial sector but also to the development in many developing
countries. The results of their scientific and technical activities have
continuously been passed to industry. The development of all industrial areas in
the area of Slovakia is significantly connected with the TUKE. The teaching and
research staff co-operates with similar institutions abroad.

The Rector is the head of the university, is elected among the professors on the
university´s permanent staff by the Academic Senate for four years. The
Academic Senate is the highest level self-governmental body of our institution.

   The Institute of Life-Long Education (ILLE) was established as an
independent part of TUKE in 1996 and is a member of the Slovak Distance
Education Network. It serves the region of Eastern Slovakia in the field of
continuing, distance and open education. The main aims of the Institute are the
provision of life-long education for the region, development and delivery of
continuing and distance education courses and programs as well as providing
consultation services and information in this field.
  The Institute has three divisions: a Local Centre of Distance Education
(LCDE), Centre of Continuing Education (CCE), and a Senior Citizens'
University (SCU).

  TUKE maintains well established scientific and pedagogical contacts with
many universities abroad, such as: the BUGH Wuppertal, University of Gent,
University of Miskolc, Technical University of Rzeszow, AGH Krakow, and the
University of Teesside, among others.
      The University is also involved in many international programmes,
mainly within the framework of European Union programs such as 5th and 6th
Framework Programme,COST, CEEPUS, COPERNICUS and Leonardo da
Vinci as well as the PHARE and International Visegrad Fund programmes
