From the 6th to the 10th May 2019, Professor Maria Pietrzak-David from the ENSEEIHT school in France, which is a part of the Polytechnic Institute in Toulouse INP, visited the Faculty of Electrical and Control Engineering.
Prof. Maria Pietrzak-David is a graduate of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Gdańsk University of Technology. She obtained her doctoral degree in technical sciences in France, at Toulouse INP in 1979, and at the same university she obtained her postdoctoral degree in 1988. Her professional career was connected with Toulouse INP, initially as an assistant professor, and since 1990 as a professor. In 1994-2001 she was Deputy Dean, in 2001-2010 Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Automation ENSEEIHT and in 2008-2015 Director of the Doctoral School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications. She is currently responsible for the implementation of Master of Science studies. (MSc EES) of the "Electrical Energy Systems" direction of the Toulouse INP. Professor Pietrzak-David has been involved in the promotion of scientific and didactic cooperation between Toulouse INP- ENSEEIHT / LAPLACE Laboratory and the Faculty of Electrical and Control Engineering of the Gdańsk University of Technology for many years.
Professor Maria Pietrzak-David's scientific interests include control and estimation systems of multimachine / multi-processor drive systems in autonomous aircraft, car, ship and railway networks. She is a co-author of 7 monographs, over 200 articles in magazines and conference materials, including 6 international patents. She has promoted 37 doctors.
During her stay at the Faculty, Prof. Pietrzak-David conducted lectures in English at the graduate studies for subjects: Electromechanical systems in the electrical engineering field and Automation of electric drive in the power engineering field. The classes conducted by Professor Pietrzak-David will be continued during the week: 20-25 May this year.
