Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest

Introduction
Bucharest_3

The Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest is a technical university that trains higher education specialists in the fields of civil engineering, building services engineering, mechanical engineering/technological equipment and machines, environmental engineering, geodesic engineering, management and engineering and systems engineering.

The Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest, a direct descendant of the National School of Roads and Bridges founded, in Romania, nearly a century and a half ago, is nowadays the pennant of Technical Education in Romania. The curricula cover all the fields of civil engineering and environmental protection, as well as adjacent fields such as building services, technological equipment, geodesy. In recent years, the curricula have been diversified and, presently, they include specialist domains in the field of systems engineering, as well as that of foreign languages.

With a rich tradition and outstanding teaching staff, who have set and are still setting the benchmarks in engineering education and who have also contributed and are still contributing to the completion of certain reference works in our country, the University is accredited for all higher education cycles - bachelor, master and PhD studies. Currently, there are over 6,200 students matriculated for the first two cycles and over 300 doctoral students.

The teaching staff comprises about 440 members, with an equal balance between full and associate professors, lecturers, young assistants and teaching assistants. The entire teaching staff is engaged in research, design and consulting activities, directly contributing to offering knowledge in the field as well as to financing the development programmes.

Following the institutional assessment of 2009, the University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest has won a HIGH CONFIDENCE rank which proves that the University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest has all the necessary equipment and teaching staff to achieve high quality education.

History

Higher education in civil engineering in Romania was founded in 1864, in Bucharest by setting up a "School of Bridges and Roads, Mines and Architecture" which, in 1867 became the "School of Bridges, Roads and Mines" and "the National School for Bridges and Roads" in 1888. In 1921, the "National School of Bridges and Roads" became the "Polytechnic School of Bucharest", where the engineers' training was carried out in the Engineering Department which, in 1938, came to be known as the Faculty of Civil Engineering.

In 1948, following an Education Reform, the Faculty of Civil Engineering was separated from the Polytechnic School (which became the Polytechnic Institute) and became an independent higher education institution, called the Civil Engineering Institute of Bucharest. Starting with the academic year 1994-1995, the Civil Engineering Institute of Bucharest became The Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest.

From 1864 till 1948, The National School of Bridges and Roads and then the Civil Engineering Department of the Polytechnic School trained 2,137 engineers, under the guidance of renowned teachers such as: Spiru Haret, Anghel Saligny, Elie Radu, Gheorghe Titeica, David Emanuel Andrei Ioachimescu, Gheorghe Filipescu, Ion Ionescu, whose endeavors and achievements have laid the foundation of the Romanian science and technology in civil engineering.

From 1948 to 2008, over 37,000 engineers graduated from the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest. During this interval, the university teaching staff included outstanding personalities in the field of science and engineering; among them: the academicians Aurel Beles, Cristea Mateescu, Dumitru Dumitrescu, Stefan Balan, Michael Hangan, Victor Smith, Alexander Steopoe, Priscu Radu, Emil Botea, Alexander Gheorghiu, Andrei Caracostea, Panaite Mazilu, Ion Stanculescu and others who have all carried on their predecessors' tradition.

Master Energy Efficiency Of Building Systems

Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Romania Bucharest

After the first cycle of studies (license), the Master "Energy efficiency of building systems," adds EEITB engineers skills, in-depth knowledge in key areas of research developed in our Faculty: energy buildings, comfort in indoor environments, the behavior of technical building systems (ventilation, heating, refrigeration, packing unit of the air, electrical, lighting, sanitation, automatic management, acoustics, atmospheric pollution and filtration systems, renewable energy sources).

After the first cycle of studies (license), the Master "Energy efficiency of building systems," adds EEITB engineers skills, in-depth knowledge in key areas of research developed in our Faculty: energy buildings, comfort in indoor environments, the behavior of technical building systems (ventilation, heating, refrigeration, packing unit of the air, electrical, lighting, sanitation, automatic management, acoustics, atmospheric pollution and filtration systems, renewable energy sources). The courses are based on topics such as: Advanced technical thermodynamics (compressible gas dynamics, irreversible thermodynamics with finite speed, non-conventional energy systems) fluid mechanics (boundary layer turbulence, CFD) Electrical Power (theoretical electrical engineering, power systems transient and non-sinusoidal regime) numerical modeling and simulation of the behavior of equipment and facility systems, experimental methods of monitoring the operation of facilities systems complex systems of technical management, renewable and efficient energy, materials, "smart" equipment and systems used in buildings with very low energy consumption, the power-generating performance evaluation methods of installation systems (audit and energy certification of buildings). Most courses of the Masters has directed work or practical work. The last half is allocated to the development of the dissertation thesis and practical placements. The Skills and Professional Career At the end of the Masters students can easily develop a career in basic research (modeling and simulation) or in experimental research - civil engineering, activitées become very well also requested for project engineers, inspection engineers and experts. Practical skills obtained also allow better working assembly facilities in design (for systems of all degrees of complexity) or operating systems of... [-]

Master in Structural Engineering - Civil Engineering

Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Romania Bucharest

Accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education since 2013, the masters “Structural Engineering” are 2 years post graduate programs, with teaching and examinations entirely in English language or in French language. [+]

Let’s design the future together! Accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education since 2013, the masters “Structural Engineering” are 2 years post graduate programs, with teaching and examinations entirely in English language or in French language. Organised within the Faculty of Engineering in Foreign Languages (FILS) of the Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest (UTCB), the masters contains 3 semesters with lectures and exams and 1 semester entirely devoted to the master thesis. The master programs have a total of 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System). The masters are opened to Romanian and foreign bachelor graduates. They also accommodates Erasmus+ exchange students. UTCB has 67 Erasmus+ agreements with universities from 17 countries. For the academic year 2016-2017 over 15 Erasmus students from France, Spain and Greece already registered to our masters. The same master programs is provided at FILS with teaching and examinations in English or in French language. Exchange students can benefit of this, being allowed to select lectures in both languages and consequently they can develop their foreign languages skills. The masters provide a supplement of theoretical and modelling knowledge together with advanced courses in structural engineering. A core topic of the masters is the earthquake resistant design with a significant amount of dedicated hours (structural dynamics, engineering seismology, earthquake engineering, seismic fragility, nonlinear analysis). Earthquake resistant design concepts and applications are also included in almost all lectures and projects, Romania being an earthquake prone country with a long tradition and experience in earthquake engineering.
