The Steering Committee of Politehnica University Timisoara, a structure established for the first time nationally, consisting of prominent personalities of the regional socio-economic environment, met on Friday, November 13, 2020, in a festive online meeting to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Politehnica University Timișoara. The institution was created by the Decree signed by King Ferdinand I on November 11, 1920.

100 years ago, the Timișoara Polytechnic was established as a necessity related especially to the economic development of the area, Timișoara being the second city of Hungary, from a development standpoint, after Budapest, so that the fact that a polytechnic school was established here is not a fad, but a natural consequence.

From the very beginning, the Timisoara Polytechnic had a close connection with the enterprises in the city, the specializations trained specialists for the factories here and in the surroundings, and the research had a deep applicative character, traits that have been preserved throughout the institution's existence until today.

To further strengthen the connection with the economic environment, on October 2, 2012, the newly elected management of Politehnica University Timișoara had the initiative of a meeting with representatives of the economic environment to show openness to the economic environment and to generate an authentic dialogue about technical higher education and the possibilities of collaboration, this being the birth certificate of the Steering Committee of Politehnica University Timișoara.

Now, on the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the first higher education institution in the city, the members of the Steering Committee addressed warm wishes to the Timișoara Polytechnic and the current university management, on the anniversary hour, reaffirming their mutually beneficial support and collaboration.
