Technical University of Liberec



The history of the Technical University of Liberec goes back to 1953 when the Technical College of Mechanical Engineering was established. From that time onwards the College offered academic programmes in Mechanical Technology, and in the Design/Construction of Textile, Glass, Ceramics and other Machinery. These academic programmes and related research activities corresponded directly to typical industries found in Northern Bohemia. In the late 1950s, a new academic programme – Textile Technology – was offered at the College. In 1960, the College was divided into two faculties, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Textile Engineering. Also, the name of the College was changed to the College of Mechanical and Textile Engineering.
