The Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, an “Advanced Research and Education University” as awarded with the Order of the Ministry of National Education no 5262/September 5th 2011, is today a tertiary educational institution having both tradition and national and international recognition.
The Technical University comprises at present 13 faculties, in the two academic centres of Cluj-Napoca and Baia Mare as well as in locations, such as Alba-Iulia, Bistrita, SatuMare and Zalau. Besides education, research is the main priority of The Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. Research structures, from centres to platforms, are operational within all the faculties of the university. The performance related to the economic and social environment, international cooperation and visibility, scientific novelty and pluridisciplinarity defines the research environment of our university. The fields of research cover a wide range, from engineering – most largely covered – to fundamental, social, humanistic and artistic fields. The research lines are also oriented along the world priorities and perspectives, that is from information technology and communications to renewable energies and ecology, from superconductivity, spintronics and nanomaterials to management and robotics, from mechatronics and electrical engineering to vehicles and future dwelling or urban planning and society, humanities and arts.
