Short history...

High education in the field of mechanical engineering started at Cluj-Napoca in 1948, with the creation of the School of Electromechanical Engineers. In 1953, this School became the Polytechnic Institute that finaly changed its name in 1990 into the Technical University.

The Department of Manufacturing Engineering was part of the institution from its very creation. In these 50 years of activity, the Department has contributed to the education and training of over 8,000 engineers.

Following the development of higher technical education, as well as the growth and diversification of new directions in the teaching of engineering after 1990, two other departments were separated from the Manufacturing Engineering Department: Machine-Tools and Industrial Robots and Systems Management and Engineering.

Along with teaching and training of students, the Department has developed sustained research activities. This has contributed effectively to the development, in this geographical region, of a well developped, competitive mechanical industry.

In the last period the Department of Manufacturing Engineering has deeply diversified the activities and skills. Numerous links with universities from countries with a developed industry - some developed up to effective partnership an important amount of the department's staff, but also graduate and undergraduate students beneficiated of training periods abroad, in the laboratories of these institutions.

Due to the skills of European level of its staff, the facilities of its laboratories and its current research projects, the Department of Manufacturing Engineering is already looking forward confidently to the next century.
