Code of Ethics for the Students of the Koszalin University of Technology

We, the students of the Koszalin University of Technology, in consideration of the notable impact of studies on the quality of the human life, firmly believe that we were given this opportunity which was not available to many but to few, and which many young people in the past did not receive: not because of their personal abilities but because of social relations.

This opportunity is the possibility to gain knowledge. We do believe that the present Code will serve as a proof of our awareness of the extraordinary significance of knowledge and the resulting responsibility.

Abiding by our academic and community duties and being aware of our responsibility for the good name of the student, we undertake to observe ethical principles and to apply the highest academic standards. We hereby declare as follows:
