Universitatea De Vest Din Timisoara

Introduction

Universitatea de Vest din Timișoara (UVT) / West University of Timişoara (WUT) is the main higher education institution and research pole in Western Romania. Its community comprises roughly 16000 students and over 700 academic staff. It is a comprehensive university including 11 faculties, fostering multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches to higher education and research, with a clear focus on educating students in order to develop personal and professional skills which will offer them access to an increasingly globalized labor market upon graduation. Ranked in QS World University Rankings 700+ and QS University Rankings by Subject (Modern Languages) 150+, West University of Timisoara offers opportunities for combining theoretical and practical knowledge to students in all areas of study. With more than 5% of the student body being international, the university is intensively involved in processes of internationalization in a very multicultural and dynamic city that offers various opportunities for work and leisure. Over the last twelve years, the University has responded to changes in national educational policy, to demographic shifts, to a radically different economy and marketplace requirements, to emerging local and regional needs, and to new technologies. tim All of these changes have led, in turn, to new expectations on the part of students, staff, and administrators. The University equips individuals with skills needed for effective contribution to society. This work is currently done through eleven faculties that provide a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs. The results reached in many programs involving international collaboration - particularly in mobility programs like Socrates, PHARE, Leonardo de Vinci, etc.—are indeed impressive and are among the best achievements of the University. The overall impression we received of WUT is that of a very creative, energetic, active, and innovative University. All staff members, both teaching, and research, are very enthusiastic and determined to experiment with all the new opportunities and modalities offered by I.T. Furthermore good multimedia tools were available in most classrooms in the new buildings, (e.g. those of Economic Sciences and Law). (Excerpts from The Universities Project of The Salzburg Seminar. Visiting Advisors Report, October 21-25, 2002, Timisoara, ROMANIA)

THE MESSAGE OF THE RECTOR OF WEST UNIVERSITY OF TIMIȘOARA

Throughout a history equally marked by moments of joy and challenges, our university has consistently performed the role with which it was endowed by its founders as the main knowledge center of western Romania. In a world of mobilities where distances have been enormously compressed as a result of the development of fast means of transport and new communication media, WUT stands out on the global educational market as a regional leader open to the international academic community, both from the perspective of scientific research and study programs.

Today WUT offers an effervescent intellectual environment which stimulates individual achievements, teamwork, and interdisciplinarity both to those who want to provide knowledge, innovate or perform in the field of research and artistic creativity and to those who are looking forward to joining our bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral or postdoctoral programs. The WUT charter, the advanced scientific research, and education are the components of our university’s mission. I welcome you to the West University of Timișoara if you want to be part of our project and I invite you to join our effort to consolidate an institution which has the mission statement: integrity, dynamism, and academic vision. Rector, Professor Marilen PIRTEA, Ph. D.

Master in Innovation-based Integrated Design

Campus Full time September 2018 Romania Timișoara

Unlike traditional design, integrated design is not a one-sided and uni-disciplinary justifiable action, but in order to generate a durable and sustainable design solution, it uses a holistic, three-way assessment. Thus, in order to be accepted and implemented in practice, the design solution must be "sound" - according to the "ecologically necessary versus technologically possible" binomial - from the ecological point of view, be fair, equitable and timely, from the point of view of ethical, social and economic view, as it must be designed to meet a certain utilitarian function, and to aesthetically enrich and signify a product, a space, a service, or an individual.
