Ewa Górska, Piotr Kłosiński, Natasza Parda, Paweł Szymański - Management Students from our Bachelor level of studies discussing the Program schedule with the Project Coordinator PhD Magdalena Forfa.
Four of our Management students actively participate in the international interdisciplinary BIP – Blended Intensive Program titled: SUSTAINABLE BIOTECHNOLOGY ENTREEPRENEURSHIP: MICROAGAE & HUMAN FOOD. Alongside Lomza State University of Applied Sciences, there are nine more universities from all over the world taking part in this project: Georgian College (Canada), Jan Dlugosz University in Czastochowa (Poland), Università Politecnica delle Marche (Italy), Université Paris-Est Créteil Val de Marne (France), University of Economics-Varna (Bulgaria), University of Parma (Italy), Università degli Studi Milano-Bicocca (Italy), Universidad de Almería (Spain), Universität Hohenheiem (Germany).
The main research problem is the usage of microalgae in the unequal fight against hunger in the world, but also achieving food security and propose ideas to establish better eating habits with the goal of proper nutrition in mind, and promotion of sustainable agriculture. The project coordinator is our Spanish partner, University of Almeria. PhD Magdalena Forfa and MA Katarzyna Zacharzewska-Arnista are project coordinators on behalf of our University.
In the meantime, we are excited to start this upcoming mobility season and we would like to invite all students to take part in international studies and traineeships offered within the Erasmus+ Programme.

Summer Semester 2021/2022 in Lomza: READY, STEADY, GO!
When March first started, our University got brighter and more talkative, as students started the next semester of their studies. Among those smiling faces, there were 28 foreign students, who joined Lomza State University of Applied Sciences after having been accepted to study here within the framework of Erasmus+ Programme.
The start of the semester was the perfect time to take a look at the University's intrafructure, visit the Food Technology Hall and the Automation and Robotics laboratories, and to get familiar with the buidlings the Students will be studying in every day for the next couple of months. In addition, Students took part in the polish Crash Course organized by our own MA Barbara Adamiak, who is a lecturer teaching English, and - sometimes - Polish, too! The Students learnt all the important information they may need in the upcoming days, and many of them are interested in continuing the classes on their own. The Orientation Days organized by the International Relations Department for the Erasmus Students turned out to be a great hit amongs the students! Everybody was excited about the prospect of joining in the practical classes and learning from the experts.
On March 10th, Erasmus Students took part in the Integration Evening together with Polish Students. It is an event organized every semester to welcome the foreign Students into the University, and it allows them to get to know one another, as they are mostly coming from different universities and countries. Specifically with this goal in mind, the students were previously asked to prepare short presentations about themselves, their home universities, cities, and countries so that everybody could learn more about other cultures. It was a fascinating journey through many, many countries! This semester, Lomza State University of Applied Sciences is hosting students from Turkey, Italy, Ukraine, The Republic of Kyrgyzstan, Syria, Cape Verde, Yemen, Spain, Lithuania, and Romania.
After the Integration Evening full of insipring talks, meeting the departmental coordinators, and planning the next month, the students officially began their semester courses, and they are attending the classes they had chosen prior to arriving in Lomza. It will be a great opportunity to learn about Poland, Lomza, and our University, and all of the incoming Students are very excited about that!
Welcome to Lomza! We hope you will greatly enjoy the journed you have embarked on!
Visualization of 20 Akademicka St. - New Building, New Plans
Last Academic Year, together with The Association of Polish Architects (SARP), Lomza State University of Applied Sciences has announced and concluded a competition for the expansion of our newly acquired building of 20 Akademicka Street.
Since the buildings of 1 Akademicka Street (Faculty of Computer Science and Technology) form a coherent, modern architectural complex, noticeably different from the architecture of Łomża.In order to standardize the style of all buildings and improve the conditions of study and work at the university, we decided to expand the headquarters and connect it with the building at 20 Akademicka Street, which we received from the board of the Podlaskie Voivodeship, for which I would like to thank you and I will thank you more than once - said The Rector, Prof. Dariusz Surowik.
The contest was concluded in October 2021, commencing the beginning of the Academic Year 2021/2022.
Each of the projects was an interesting idea for modern functional solutions.However, the winning project, by architect Bogusław Kidziak, heralded a building that would fit in with a 21st century University - a standard long acquired by Lomza State University of Applied Sciences.
Erasmus+ Programme Is Active in 2020/2021 Academic Year
Due to the pandemic, the world has slowed down again this fall, but the Erasmus+ Programme did not stop in March, and is not stopping now, either. Following the procedures and restrictions, the Academic Year of 2020/2021 started with a group of international students from: Spain, Turkey, Portugal, Georgia, and Belarus.
Eight students from six different universities were accepted to study at Lomza State University of Applied Sciences during the winter semester, which is a bit out of ordinary for everybody as our institution decided to implement a hybrid model of studies. Some of the students who joined us this semester applied for a mobility in the previous academic year, but we are glad to be able to host them this fall.
Students enrolled in five different departments on all three faculties, and are attending both virtual and in-person courses in English.
We truly believe that our students will be healthy and safe this ongoing semester. We are happy to have started the winter semester with international students and we wish you all the best on this journey!
