Created in 1996, the ATHENS Network is composed of 15 European technological universities or institutions. The principle goal of the Network is to facilitate the exchange of students among the major European technological universities. One of the Network's first and most unique actions concerns the organisation of an intensive course programme given at each member institution during one of two defined periods ("Sessions") of the academic year (November and March). Each Session, includes both 30 hours of scientific courses work as well as 10-15 hours of "European Dimension" Activities. Each complete Session is generally worth 2 to 3 ECTS credits. WUT is the only Polish institution in ATHENS Network.
