PJATK Flagship Partners

Wirtualna Polska (WP)

In December 2022, the Rector of the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology dr hab. Jerzy Paweł Nowacki, signed a cooperation agreement with one of the oldest technology companies in Poland - Wirtualna Polska. Since then, we have been growing and expanding our horizons together.

March 2023 was the month when PJAIT entered the next level of cooperation with WP - this is when the inauguration of the WP Programming Academy x PJAIT took place! WP's openness, willingness to be among students, learning about university structures and joint dialogue allows us to open up to new opportunities.


On March 15, 2023, PJATK Rector Jerzy Pawel Nowacki, PhD, crowned with the signing of an agreement on long-term cooperation with Orange Polska, which was represented by CEO Julien Ducarroz. Representatives of both parties also visited the newly opened Orange Zone at PJATK headquarters.

The signing of the agreement and strengthening of our cooperation means not only more interesting professional development opportunities for our students, but also the beginning of a whole new thread - the creation of an innovative postgraduate course around cloud technologies.


In August 2023, a cooperation agreement with TREFL S.A. was signed. Since then, we have been developing and strengthening cooperation together. This has provided many interesting opportunities for development, especially for female students of the University's branch in Gdansk.

Since October 2023, representatives of the KAZstudio animation studio, part of the Trefl Group, have been conducting 3D animation workshops at the Faculty of New Media Art in Gdansk for interested students.


The Polish-Japanese Academy of Computer Technology was established in 1994 under an agreement between the governments of Poland and Japan to develop computer science education in Poland. From the beginning, the Academy was supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
