The Faculty of Material Science and Engineering


The traditions of metallurgical education are linked to the development of ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy in Romania. Thus, soon after the coming out of the first metal works in Banat, on January 1729 the first School of Mines and Metallurgy was founded at Oravita, which was transferred after 60 years in Resita. The first independent course of Metallurgy was introduced only in 1842 at Iasi.

In our university (former National School for Roads and Bridges) engineering diplomas in Metallurgy were conferred starting with 1881. Since 1920, the university has been renamed Polytechnic School of Bucharest, comprising four faculties including a Metallurgy department.

The first Bachelor’s degrees in Metallurgy were conferred in the third decade of the 20th century following the setting up of the Mines and Metallurgy section as part of the Polytechnic School of Bucharest. The first Ph.D in Metallurgy was conferred on an American engineer under the supervision of academician Traian Negrescu.

The development in manufacturing metallic, ceramic and carbonic materials has been carried out by having various factories and plants put into operation all over the country, producing semifinished goods and parts for high-tech industries: Microelectronics, Nuclear Energetics, Automation, Aeronautics, Robotics, modern transportation.

In 1990 the name of the faculty was changed into the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering.

The faculty offers programs of study and research in: Materials Engineering, Economic Engineering in Materials Industry, Medical Engineering, Environment Engineering – full-time study mode engineers – as well as Master programs: Master of Advanced Studies / 2 years, Interdisciplinary Master / 2 years, Complementary Master / 2 years, full-time study mode Ph.D. / 3 years and extramural / 3 years, The Academic Postgraduate School / 2 years, Post-Graduate Studies / 6 months, trainings for preuniversity teachers (Permanent Teacher’s Certification, ‘Senior teacher level 1’’ Certification, ‘Senior teacher level 2’’ Certification), courses for re-qualification and professional reorientation (computer operator).
