He has been successful in implementing new trenchless technologies. In this respect he is renowned nationwide.

Professor supervised six successfully defended doctoral theses and he is currently aiding four doctoral students. He has written numerous reviews of doctoral and habilitation theses and evaluated the scientific achievement of candidates who were to be nominated as professors or awarded the honorary degree of doctor honoris causa. He has reviewed many monographs and academic handbooks; also a large number of articles and papers for technical and scientific magazines, including three that feature in the citation index of the Institute for Scientific Information (Tunnelling and Underground Space Technology, Water Research, Archives of Civil and Mechanical Engineering), and in such foreign periodicals as Journal of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Water Science or The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers Transaction. He is on the editorial staff of Archives of Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Trenchless Engineering and Geoengineering.

The achievements of Professor Madryas made him a renowned and highly respected authority among both scientists and engineers. He was elected twice to the position of vice-president of the Civil and Water Engineering Committee of PAN [the Polish Academy of Sciences], four times to the position of a member of this Committee, and twice the president of the Civil Engineering and Mechanics Commission of PAN, branch in Wrocław as well as vice-president of the Geotechnics and Underground Infrastructure Section of the Civil Engineering Committee of PAN.
