Wacław Kasprzak was born 26.IX.1932. Graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Wrocław University of Technology in 1956.

He started his professional career during the study at the department of Technical Mechanic. Worked under the supervision of Prof. Marek Zakrzewski, who also became the supervisor of his doctoral dissertation, devoted to the states of material in the places of stress concentration. The thesis of his doctors of science degree was devoted to the analysis  of construction load on the base of stress measurements and the behavior of policrystals on the base  of the monocrystals properties (1967).

He got academic apointments:

  • 1954-1956 assistant
