Student services

Since college means more than classes and since our students are constantly involved in multiple activities (contests, volunteering, practice and internship, etc.) we have created a department that will listen to their wishes and will always give them the best guidance in order to carry out their plans. This Department can be found on the ground floor, room P61.

Housing services

Among the facilities offered on the campus let us mention the restaurant with its own kitchen, a bar, an outdoor patio and a fitness room with changing rooms and showers.

Library services

The reading room of the library is equipped with 22 computers with Internet access which may be freely used by students. Wireless Internet access is available over the whole surface of the campus.

ICT services

The IT Center exists as part of the administrative infrastructure of the university. The main activity of the centre is to build a communication network based on the latest IT technologies and to provide support to their users.

The IT Center aims to establish solid connections with users and to make modern technology part of their natural environment.

Student Life

Campus life

The campus, located in the 2nd district of the capital, is one of the most modern in Romania. The laboratories of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences have latest generation electronic and computing equipment, used in both teaching and research activities. Course and seminar rooms, as well as laboratories are equipped with projectors, have quality furnishings and are connected to the centralized air conditioning system. Each study programme uses at least one multimedia classroom equipped with smart board, allowing teachers to make classes more interactive and more appealing to students.

Sports facilities

The University provides a Sports Hall where activities ranging from football to basketball and handball can take place. On hot summer days, students can socialise on the outdoor patio, while enjoying a coffee or playing table tennis. On colder days, they can meet in the Student Corner, a space intended for leisure and socialisation. In addition, we have arranged a fitness room where students can be trained by a personal trainer. 

Student clubs

To ensure the personal development outside the academic curriculum, we encourage students to become members of the existing student clubs or to found new clubs alongside their colleagues. They are constantly expanding with each group of students who discover a shared passion and a desire to explore a new field. The University supports these initiatives through consulting, PR, and can even allocate material resources to projects which help to increase the prestige of the university.
