Welcome on my homepage

Introduction

My name is Grzegorz Ilczuk, I was born in Poland but since several years I live with my family in Germany.
On my job I was able to combine my interest in computer and medicine by working for Siemens Healthcae GmbH.
My favorite things to do in my free time are sailing (mostly a catamaran), travailing and programming.

Beginning

Sosnowiec

I was born in Sosnowiec/Poland, which is the centre of the Zaglebie Dabrowskie area within the historic Lesser Poland region. It is located about 10 km (6.2 mi) east of Katowice and 65 km (40 mi) north of Kraków, situated in the Silesian Upland on the rivers Brynica and Przemsza, a tributary of the Vistula.

1990-1994

High school

My high school was IV Liceum Ogólnoksztalcace im. Stanislawa Staszica in Sosnowiec, which corresponds to upper secondary school (6th form). It has more than a 100 year old tradition and scores as one of the best high schools in Poland.

1994-1999

University

I have studied at Silesian University of Technology (Politechnika Slaska) in Gliwice/Poland. It was founded in 1945 by Polish professors of the Lwow Polytechnic, who were forced to leave their native city and move to the Recovered Territories (called also Kresy). The University consistently ranks among the top most prestigious technical universities in Poland.

2003-2008

Graduation

I earned my Ph.D graduation at University of Silesia in Sosnowiec. The University of Silesia was established on 8 June 1968 as Poland’s ninth university. The university was created through a merger of a branch of the Jagiellonian University existing in Katowice since 1963 with the Higher School of Pedagogy which at that time was the only academic institution in the region, with its roots dating back to 1928.
My thesis title was "Appliance of Rough Set Theory in analysis of complex medical datasets" and my supervisor was Dr A. Wakulicz-Deja.

2001-2004

First steps
in Germany

In 2001 I moved to Germany and started to work for Heitec company in Erlangen. Erlangen is a Middle Franconian city in Bavaria, Germany. Erlangen is a city with a long tradition (first official records from 1002) nowadays the city is dominated by the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the numerous branch offices of Siemens AG, as well as a large research Institute of the Fraunhofer Society and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light.

2005-present

Current work

Currently, I'm leading an embedded software development team at Siemens Healtcare GmbH and I'm enjoying my job very much.
