ISPE Gdańsk University of Technology Student Chapter
ISPE, the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering, is the world's largest not-for-profit association serving its Members by leading scientific, technical and regulatory advancement throughout the entire pharmaceutical lifecycle. All scientific and technical areas of the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry are represented among the ISPE Membership. Engineers, microbiologists, chemists, QA/QC, production, process development, pharmacists, regulatory and training personnel, academia, suppliers, and other professionals contribute their expertise to the industry through their participation in ISPE activities. As a local student chapter, we focus on increasing our knowledge about pharmaceutical engineering, drug development, regulations, GMP/GLP and others. Our aim is to increase our qualifications as future employee in pharmaceutical industry, what we can realise by organising trainings and workshops in cooperation with pharmaceutical companies, organising and participating in conferences and by sharing our knowledge and providing discussion on our internal meetings. We also try to increase public awareness about proper drugs use and utilisation during science festivals. Other part of our activity are scientific projects, what can lead to new drugs development like synthesis of coumarin derivatives, edeine biosynthesis and others.

The circle collects students who want to develop their passion for the study of corrosion phenomena, both in the laboratory or in the field. They have access to many activities which help support their development, including acquisition of professional knowledge and unlimited by routine restrictions innovativeness but also social and emotional skills as well as cooperation in the group. Students from different faculties, such as materials engineering, chemical technology and other, are involved in circle activities. In the last period they develop corrosivity map of Tri-city area based on the exposure of samples of carbon steel in accordance with the standards adopted in Europe. They introduce gained knowledge into practice through a variety of hands-on activities that academic tutor cannot implement during large group, or one-on-one instruction.
As a students' society our statutory goals are broadening our knowledge, promoting our members, as well as spreading knowledge connected with all fields of biotechnology among society. We want to ensure that biotechnologists are well trusted professional group. We achieve listed goals through variety of activities. All of our members have a chance to prove their growth and share their interests in biotechnology at internal seminars. Our recent cooperation with Academic Students' Society of Biotechnology resulted in organising a conference - BioChemMed Session 2016. Every year we take chance of promotion as well as sharing our knowledge through festivals organised at Gdańsk University of Technology. We are promoting biotechnology among high school students through series of microbiology lectures and laboratories. We also help with organising open lectures, take part in and coordinate science projects. All of our members may count on support of each other.
Student’s Chemical Society at Gdańsk University of Technology has united student of all professions for 90 years. We are organizing chemistry shows for children and cooperating with industry. Our most known project is “Chemistry without borders”, where college students can learn practical knowledge – they titrate, analyze solutions, effect electrolysis and more. In 2016 we run first edition of Interdisciplinary Academic Conference of Environmental Protection where students and PhD student can share their experience, achievements and exchange knowledge in subjects as biochemistry, ecology, material degradation and processes going under nature. What is more, our members write publications in science magazines and deliver report in many conferences in Poland.
"Hybryda" is an organization dynamically prospering since 2004. We associate undergraduate and graduate students of the Faculty of Chemistry at Gdańsk University of Technology and fans of chemistry-related sciences. Within our activities we organize popular-science lectures and exhibitions, chemical demonstrations, workshops and competitions, and many others. Our members participate in various research projects and they present their scientific results at conferences. We also organize conferences both at local and national level. We actively participate in the life of the Faculty and the entire University. We are happy establishing a cooperation with other scientific circles and organizations of a similar profile. "Hybryda" unites, what functioning separately would not have such a significant impact.
The Polymer Technology Student Research Group (Tech-Pol) was established in March 2014 by Kamil Wiśniewski, Magdalena Wołosiak, Paulina Kosiorek and Aleksandra Klein. We are operating at the Department of Polymer Technology in Gdansk University of Technology. The main goal of our research group is to enhance knowledge about the polymer science and plastics manufacturing. We managed to create several research teams which focus on different scientific or industrial topics including: recycling, asphalt modification, polymers used in medicine and biodegradable polymers based on potato starch. We cooperate with various industrial facilities in Poland, to allow the students to visit the factories which specialize in plastics manufacturing. Our interest is also put in attending to annual science fairs and conferences which we often take an active part in. We are also very supportive towards the individual science initiatives of our members. Currently we are open to any student interested in polymer science and technology.
