  • Water tank from Cotroceni under execution (1890)

    Higher education in civil engineering in Romania came intobeing in 1864 by founding The School of Bridges andRoads, Mines and Architecture. It became The School ofBridges, Roads and Mines in 1867 and The National Schoolof Bridges and Roads in 1888. In 1921, it turned into thePolytechnic School of Bucharest where civil engineers weretrained in the Division of Civil Engineering, which was namedThe Faculty of Civil Engineering in 1938. As a result of theEducation Reform in 1948, the Faculty of Civil Engineeringseparated from the Polytechnic School (which became ThePolytechnic Institute) and became an independent highereducation establishment called the Civil Engineering InstituteBucharest. In 1994 it adopted the present name - TechnicalUniversity of Civil Engineering of Bucharest. From 1864 to1948, The National School of Bridges and Roads and then theDivision of Civil Engineering of the Polytechnic School trained

    Dmbovia - sewerage works (1883)

    University of Bucharest,1866

    2137 civil engineers, under the guidance of some famous pro-fessors like: Spiru Haret, Anghel Saligny, Elie Radu,Gheorghe ieica, David Emanuel, Andrei Ioachimescu,Gheorghe Filipescu, Ion Ionescu, by whose efforts andachievements were laid the foundations of the Romanian sci-ence and technics in civil engineering.From 1948 to 2007, more than 37000 engineers graduatedfrom the Technical University of Civil Engineering. Throughoutthis time, the academic staff of the University included somerenowned personalities of science and civil engineering, suchas Aurel Bele, Cristea Mateescu, Dumitru Dumitrescu,tefan Blan or professors Mihail Hangan, Victor Popescu,Alexandru Steopoe, Radu Pricu, Emil Botea, AlexandruGheorghiu, Andrei Caracostea, Panaite Mazilu, IonStnculescu and others, who followed the tradition imposedby their forerunners.

    Eng. Elie Radu (1853-1931),the author of the building designfor the Hydro-electrical plant Gro-zveti

    Acad. prof. eng.Anghel Saligny (1854-1925)who used reinforced concrete atbuilding silos for the first time inthe world (1884). He designed(1888) and supervised the erec-tion of Cernavod bridge overthe Danube (1890-1895), thelongest bridge in Europe at thattime. He carried on ample townplanning works for Constanaharbour.

    Acad. prof. mathematicianGheorghe ieica (1873-1939)is the initiator of some chapters ofthe projective differential and affinegeometry (Projective DifferentialGeometry of Net-works", Intro-duction to Projective DifferentialGeometry of Curves"). He disco-vered new categories of curvesurfaces and networks that bearhis name. During the last part ofhis life, he studied the geometryof curves and conformal transfor-mations. His numerous works ofelementary mathematics contri-buted to the improvement of mathe-matical education in Romania.

    Acad. prof. Spiru Haret(1851-19120),mathematician, sociologist andpedagogue; he reorganized edu-cation at all levels on modernbases.

  • In 2009 the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharesthas a remarkable academic staff (157 professors and consultingprofessors, 122 associate professors, 107 lecturers, 198 assistantprofessors and junior assistants), who have distinguished them-selves both through the results of their teaching and researchactivity and through their direct participation in the most importantconstruction works of our country.

    In Romania are registered more than 10.000 companies thathave stipulated in their status various civil engineering activities:design, execution, repairs etc., most of them being private. Thecivil engineering sector looks very dynamic and full of great expec-tations in the context of the integration into the European Union.

    At present, a few thousand graduates from the TechnicalUniversity of Civil Engineering of Bucharest are working in theUSA, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Israel, South Africaetc. Their solid education has given them the possibility to integrateand to quickly adapt to the working conditions and methods ofother countries. All over the world, the civil engineers educated inBucharest are ranged among the best professionals in this field.

    Reorganizing the civil engineering higher education according tothe Bologna process offers the graduates from the TechnicalUniversity of Civil Engineering of Bucharest the opportunity to bevalidated and integrated into the European job market.

    The technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest is theinitiator and coordinator of EUCEET Thematic Network, whichincludes 131 partner institutions from 29 European countries.

    In March 2001, the Technical University of Civil Engineering ofBucharest reached a Double-Diploma agreement with EcoleNationale des Ponts et Chausses, the first agreement of this kindin the Romanian civil engineering higher education.

    the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest is atechnical university for higher education, training specialists in civilengineering, building services, mechanical engineering, environ-mental engineering, geodesy, as well as in adjacent fields with atechnical specificity.

  • Foreword

    The Technical University of Civil Engineering in Bucharest is thepraiseworthy heir of a two centuries old tradition in specialized higher educa-tion, which started with the 18th century geodesy (cadastral survey) school inMoldavia; the tradition was then continued during the 19th century in Walachiawith the first National School of Bridges and Roads set up in 1851 in Bucharest.

    The most important task of the Technical University of CivilEngineering is the training of highly competent specialists in the fields of CivilEngineering, Systems Engineering, Management in Engineering, as well asApplied Language Studies, having the capacity and appropriate scientific, tech-nical and managing skills needed for their optimal integration according to therequirements of the Romanian and European economy today. With its rich spe-cialty engineering tradition and outstanding teaching staff, our University nowstands out by its degree of competitiveness, performance and professionalismat a national and international level.

    The Technical University of Civil Engineering as an institution is ac-credited for all higher education programmes - Bachelor, Master, and Docto-rate in full agreement with its major aim of promoting excellence in trainingand research; these activities are consistent with its ultimate mission of train-ing specialists at the highest level, with a view to contributing to the scientificand technological progress, to maintaining high professional standards andefficiently involving these specialists at all levels of the real economy, with aview to constantly increasing the life standard.

    The academic staff includes around 520 members involved in theprofessional formation of approximately 8,000 students for the first two learn-ing cycles, and over 600 learners following Doct
