The Technical University of Liberec is a university in the city of Liberec, Czech Republic. The university has undergone great transformation in its over sixty-year history. When it was founded, it was called the Institute of Mechanical Engineering in Liberec, and its original classrooms were located in the attics of the F. X. Šalda Grammar School. These later served as accommodation for teachers, and it was here that the first plans and ideas arose concerning the later form and direction of the college. The first 259 students were admitted on October 1, 1953.
The Technical University of Liberec reaches excellent results in the fields of science and research. Let us mention the world-wide unique discovery of industrial manufacturing technology of nano-textiles – the Nanospider. These results, well-known to the public, only increase the reputation of TUL. The Technical University of Liberec can also be proud of its good social, cultural and sports background. Only a few universities can offer such broad sporting possibilities. The University Sports Complex is available, in addition to the excellent facilities and public transportation in Liberec, and its surroundings, for summer and winter sports.
