While in Krakow, Poland, the WIETE Director, met with his long-time friend and collaborator Professor Dr Stanislaw A. Mitkowski, Head of the Department of Electrotechnics at AGH University of Science & Technology (AGH UST). Prof. Pudlowski briefed Prof. Mitkowski on WIETE's recent developments, and then subsequent discussions concentrated on research collaboration and future joint activities, including the possibility of developing a partnership with the WIETE. The possibility of organising jointly an international conference to be held in Krakow in mid 2010 was also discussed, with Prof. Mitkowski offering his support. It should be mentioned that in September 1998, under the auspices of the UICEE, the extremely successful 1st Global Congress on Engineering Education was organised by the two parties.

On this lovely occasion, the two friends, being passionate collectors of coins, presented each other with some recent editions of Polish and Australian coins.

It is envisaged that Prof. Mitkowski and his colleagues will attend the forthcoming 1st WIETE Annual Conference on Engineering and Technology Education, to be held in Pattaya, Thailand, in December 2009.
