By the decision of March 10, the President of the Republic of Poland conferred the title of professor of engineering and technical sciences on Jerzy Wojewoda, the Department of Machine Dynamics.


Professor Jerzy Wojewoda graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, TUL (1980). In the same year, he started doctoral studies at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. In 1984, he was employed as an assistant professor at the Institute of Applied Mechanics (later the Department of Machine Dynamics).


In 1989, he left for the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, as part of TUL international collaboration. The nearly two-year residence concluded in 1992 with a doctoral thesis Experimental Study and Analysis of Quasiperiodically Forced System with Dry Friction ( scientific advisors: Ronald Barron and Tomasz Kapitaniak). He was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in technical sciences, which was later recognized in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Lodz University of Technology.
