With over 190 years of existence, Politehnica University of Bucharest represents one of the fundamental and prestigious institutions of the Romanian higher education, being the main source of technical specialists in Romania. At the moment, the visibility of Politehnica University of Bucharest is built only by the high quality of students and the diversity of programs offered for them, and I believe that it could be invested more time into promoting the potential our university (various scholarships, high quality lab assistants and professors, motivated students) in Romania and abroad.
The mission of the Politehnica University of Bucharest has been thought over as a blend of education, research and innovation, which represents a key towards a knowledge-based society and economy. Creating knowledge mainly by scientific research, giving it out by education and professional training, disseminating it by information technologies, as well as the use of technological innovation are elements that define the university distinctive profile.
When I have applied to enroll to Politehnica University of Bucharest, my only thought was to become an engineer. It was not about the prestige of the university, but mostly because of the quality of the provided education system. I have chosen Faculty of Automation and Computer Science and I could proudly say it was the best choice I could have even done.
What differentiates Politehnica University of Bucharest from other universities around Romania is the approach towards students and the learning experience. What I enjoy the most here are the opportunities that our university provided during studenthood, starting with several interesting projects abroad, Erasmus scholarships and many thesis topics opportunities, laboratories and experts in the field.
Politehnica University of Bucharest is the most important technical university in Romania. Its traditions are connected to the founding of the first higher technical school in 1818 by Gheorghe Lazar. The tradition of our university, developed in over 190 years through the effort of the most important nation's schoolmasters and of the generations of students, is not the only convincing reason. Today, Politehnica University of Bucharest is undergoing a continuous modernization process, being involved in a permanent dialogue with great universities in Europe and all over the world.
The program of the university is able to design and optimize processes that lead to a knowledge-based society, to reaching the goals of the sustainable economic growth, to better jobs, to stronger economic and social cohesion, to a better Romania!
