The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering

 


The Romanian contribution to pioneering in aviation is remarkable and has worldwide recognition. The names of Traian Vuia (the first complete flight by his own aircraft, 1906), Henry Coanda (the first jet engine used for propulsion in aviation, 1920) and Aurel Vlaicu (an inventor with high performances, 1910) are well-known to the aviation world.

The higher education in aviation started in 1928, when Prof. Elie Carafoli opened the first conference on Aeronautics at the Polytechnic school in Bucharest. He also built the first wind tunnel in South-Eastern Europe (1931), still in operation.
The Specialization in Aviation existing at the Polytechnic of Bucharest during the period 1933-1971, became the Faculty of Aerospace Constructions in 1971, with 180-200 students entrance number per year. To become an aerospace engineer four years of study are required.

The engineers trained in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest are educated to be open minded, able to adapt themselves to any new technical and scientific requirements, as well as to problems related to engineering management, wherever they have to work.
