The Faculty of Engineering Management of Poznan University of Technology  continues traditions and good practices of industrial organization and management initiated before the Second World War by such Polish engineers as Karol Adamiecki, Piotr Drzewiecki, Edwin Hauswald and Zygmunt Rytel. Currently, three institutes operate within the Faculty's structure: the Institute of Safety and Quality Engineering, the Institute of Logistics and the Institute of Management and Computing Systems. Each of them is responsible for one field of study - Safety Engineering, Logistics and Management Engineering respectively. In addition to teaching, the Faculty conducts research and actively cooperates with business. For years, the Faculty of Engineering Management has been top-ranked by Rzeczpospolita daily and Perspektywy monthly in terms of functioning and teaching.

The Faculty’s mission is to generate new knowledge by creatively combining engineering sciences with management sciences and teaching in the area of logistics, safety engineering and engineering management, also in a continuous mode. This is effected by scientific, research and development work carried out in cooperation with the labour market focusing on sustainable development. The Faculty’s vision is to build a brand of a valued team of experts, an important research and teaching unit of Poznan University of Technology, recognizable in Poland and abroad and a sought-after partner in research, development and teaching projects guaranteeing a high scientific level and quality of education.
