Ulrich Schrade (21 July 1943 in Patricken / East Prussia (now Patryki, Poland) – 15 November 2009 in Warsaw, Poland) was a philosopher, educationist and ethicist. Born in East Prussia, he was part of the Germans, who managed to remain in their homeland, when it was conquered by the Soviet Union in 1945 and parts were given to Communist Poland.

Since 1974 he worked at the Faculty of Management and Social Sciences at the Warsaw University of Technology. At this university he is considered to be the founder of a specific current of philosophy of science and technology and a major contributor to the theory of higher education. Until his death he was holding the following positions:
