Civil Engineering in Romania

There is currently a course in Civil Engineering in Romania in English at the University of Bucharest.

Bucharest appears in historical documents for the first time in 1459. In 1862 it became the capital of Romania. Since then it is one of the cultural and scientific centers of Europe. The exceptional architecture of the buildings was the reason wht Bucharest was called "Little Paris" during the first half of the 20th century. In recent years there is a huge economic and cultural development in Bucharest. Bucharest has about 2,000,000 inhabitants and it is the largest city in Romania.

The University of Bucharest was founded in 1864. The Department of Civil Engineering has acted as an independent school since 1995.

The Department of Civil Engineering has an English-speaking section in recent years.

Studying for a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering takes 4 years.
The Master’s degree takes 1-1.5 years.
Universal has secured fifteen posts for Civil Engineering students for the 2010-2011 academic year. Applicants will be considered based on a priority list.

Tuition fees are the same as for Romanian students, ie 4500 Lei year (about 1200 euros per year).

The academic year 2009-2010 a total of 7439 university students were enrolled at the University, including 2,487 in the Department of Civil Engineering. In 2010-2011, the number of professors of the University is 527, split into 28 seats.
The University is housed in 14 buildings with a total area of 33,000 m2, of which 18,500 m2 are classrooms, 7500 m2 laboratory space and 7,000 m2 offices. The main part of the University, which houses the School of Civil Engineering, is located in the area of Tei in Bucharest. The University has 8 libraries, with about 525,000 books. It has 6 computer networks, one for each school, with over 500 personal computers. These include a network specifically for CAD facilities. There are 4 audio-visual workshops offering facilities for the study of 7 foreign languages. The University has dormitories for 2,400 students, with an area of 35,000 m2 and a restaurant area of 3,000 m2, which accommodates 500 students. 4 students usually share each apparetment, and the cost is about € 70/month.
In recent years the University has received a large number of students from European and other countries. Between 1975 and 2003, more than 1,350 non-Romanian students have received Masters and 74 have received Ph.D. degrees from the University. The University initiated and still coordinates the program SOCRATES - ERASMUS Thematic Network Project EUCEET (European Civil Engineering Education and Training).
The University has partnerships with 150 Universities worldwide. Specifically in the UK it is in collaboration with City University, Imperial College, South Bank University, University of Greenwich, University of Sheffield, University of Manchester, University of Central Lancashire, Darlington College, Leeds University, University of Surrey and University of Strathclyde.
The entrance exams are in July.
For the Master's degree tuition is 4.800 Lei/year and for a Doctorate degree 2.400 Lei/year.

Because the number of students is extremely limited and determined by the Ministry of Education prospective students should make their applications as early as possible.
