#WUTpeople Janusz Walo: “I go to Ministry meetings by bike”

A WUT professor, community activist and cycling enthusiast. He was born in Kamień in the Lubelskie Province and graduated from the Technical Secondary School of Geodesy in Żelechów. He has been part of the Warsaw University of Technology since 1986, the year he started his diploma course. In 2016, he was appointed WUT Vice-Rector for Student Affairs. And since 2017, he has headed the Association of Polish Surveyors (SGP). No wonder, Janusz Walo has his plate full. Despite his busy schedule, in late April he found the time to meet and talk to us.

#WUTpeople “We were thinking hard what to buy first: a cash register or a currency-counting machine?”

He is the author of a popular apparel brand DZIK DZIKI, and he has recently launched the brand of Ewa Niespodziana, Poland’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 contestant. Konrad Pawlak, a 23-year-old graduate from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the Warsaw University of Technology, tells us what inspires him and what gets him going.
