Politehnica University Timișoara has confirmed once again its important role as a prestigious university on a regional scale after expressing the agreement to absorb University “Eftimie Murgu” from Reșița.

UPT rector prof. eng. Viorel-Aurel Șerban, Ph.D., received a request from the Council of the Faculty of Engineering and Management within University “Eftimie Murgu” to become a part of Politehnica University Timișoara on 8th March 2018. He addressed this matter within UPT’s Administrative Council and later within the UPT Senate.

In the meeting from 29th March 2018, the UPT Senate agreed to fulfil the request which was in agreement with UPT’s strategic mission and vision of consolidating its reputation as a prestigious university from both a regional and an international standpoint. Moreover, the Senate realized that from a legal point of view, the solution would be for the two universities to merge via the absorption of the entire University “Eftimie Murgu” by UPT.

Politehnica University Timișoara takes responsibility to bring the superior educational system from Reșița up to the standard of learning in UPT. This way, Politehnica University supports not only the youngsters in that area, but also Reșița, a city with a strong industrial background, with huge potential and whom it may offer new prospects of development.

Technical higher learning in Reșița began in 1971 when the Junior Engineer Institute, an institution subordinated to the “Traian Vuia” Polytechnic Institute from Timișoara, was founded. In 1990, the Faculty of Engineering belonging to the Polytechnic Institute was founded and in 1992, University “Eftimie Murgu” was founded and became independent from UPT.

Through this action, Politehnica University Timișoara, which also owns the Faculty of Engineering in Hunedoara, asserts once again its mission of being a notorious higher education institution on a regional level with study programs that are up to date with international standards, with highest level research, activity that is proved by the more than 200 partnerships with superior education institutions all around the world.
