Rectors Speech
The University of Piteti has been a representative academic medium for
forming Romanian and foreign students in its 50 years of activity. Every year
hundreds of foreign students come to discover the secrets and achievements
of the chosen study areas.
Our university is an institution with tradition in teaching, both for teaching
Romanian language to foreign students, and for the three cycle degree system
for undergraduates (Bachelors Degree Programmes) and graduates (Masters Degree Programmes and Doctoral Studies). For all these programmes,
there are specific teaching materials and elite academic staff. The University of
Piteti is a member of European academic organisations (EUA, AUF, BSUN,
DRC) and cooperates with more than 80 universities in the Euro-Atlantic
Zone. Through bilateral conventions, the students may apply for students
mobilities, such as ERASMUS, for international Masters Degree programmes
and for the doctoral programmes.
Research opportunities are placed at their disposal by the Research Institute,
which was founded to create a unitary and coherent framework for all the
scientific research and applicative activity. If you want to apply for any of the
programmes we provide, we are happy to place ourselves at the disposal of
education and science.
Our university is your university!

Rector Professor Dr. Ionel DIDEA

Presentation of the University

This year, the University of Piteti celebrates 50 years of higher education, 50 years since its first professors
and students sang Gaudeamus igitur. In the 50 years of activity, the University of Piteti has taken it upon
itself to contribute to the development of national knowledge and culture, aiming at creating cultural and
scientific values. The University of Piteti, a flexible and complex institution, called for to meet the cultural,
social and economic needs of society, is now part of the European academic community, contributing to the
world cultural heritage. The year 1962 was the year in which the University of Piteti began its noble mission
in the educational and professional development of generations of young people.
The state higher education in Piteti was established in 1962, under the name of the Pedagogical Institute
of Piteti, with three faculties: Philology, Mathematics and Natural Sciences. In 1969, with the development of the car manufacturing industry in the Arge county, the Assistant Engineer Institute was also established, subordinated to the Polytechnic Institute in Bucharest. The two structures merged in 1974 and
became the Institute of Higher Education of Piteti which, by the Order of the Ministry of Education no.
4.894/23.03.1991, was established as the University of Piteti. Nowadays, the University of Piteti provides
a large range of educational opportunities through its 11 faculties, BA programmes, MA programmes and
doctoral schools. Every year the institution organises an ample programme of endowments that allows our
university to develop an educational system at the same level as any modern university in the world.
For the approximately 14,000 students of the University of Piteti, the programmes are organised by competent professors, according to international standards. Scientific research is one of the priorities of the
University of Piteti. It takes place in research centres and laboratories, being materialized in theoretical and

7
Presentation of the University

practical results, scientific papers published in specialised journals in our country and abroad, presentations in symposia, conferences, and national and international congresses. Year after year, the University of
Piteti organises numerous scientific manifestations, both national and international. Within the context
of internationalisation, the University of Piteti is a member of numerous educational forums of great academic value. Within these structures, the University of Piteti is actively involved in making decisions and
elaborating new educational policies. In the field of international relations and collaborations, the University of Piteti organises a series of research-development activities in the educational domain, by means of
projects financed by the European Commission: Erasmus, Comenius, Gruntvig, Leonardo da Vinci. Besides
participating in competitions of projects financed by the European Union, the University of Piteti has paid
special attention to the mutual exchanges of students and academic staff. We should mention here the mutual exchanges with universities and professional training institutes in France, England, Denmark, Spain,
Italy, Belgium, Greece, Portugal or Germany. The competence and performance education promoted by
the University of Piteti is also supported by the existence of a modern university library, with an extensive
supply of books, which assures a solid basis of documentation, development and research in all scientific
domains.

About Romania
Romania lies in the central South-Eastern part of the European continent. With a surface of approximately
238,000 km2 and a population of 21,5 million inhabitants, it is one of the medium-sized countries of Europe
and the 7th country in the EU. Romanias neighbours are Moldavia, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria and
the Black Sea Coast.
Romania, a semi-presidential republic, with a bicameral Parliament, joined the European Union in 2007.
The geographical position and the historical evolution of this territory imposed it as an archetype of mixtures between relatively different cultures: Western-European, East-European and Balkan. This historical
reality has been materialized into a special type of general behaviour that manifests itself through the peoples tolerance, hospitality and communication easiness.
The peculiarities of the physical space come from the relatively circular disposition and from the roughly
equal proportion of each major form of relief: mountains, hills and plains that cover each 1/3 of the surface.
Besides, we can add the presence of the navigable Danube, which ensures the direct link with the Northern
Sea through the Rhine-Danube canal. The Danube Delta is one of the natural reserves under international
protection due to its unique flora and fauna, which are among the richest in Europe.
Romania is 2 hours ahead of GMT. The average annual temperatures vary between 22-24 Celsius degrees
during summer and between -3 and -5 Celsius degrees in winter. While the average annual temperatures
are about 11 Celsius degrees in the southern part of Romania, in north there are about 8 Celsius degrees,
the variations being caused by the distribution of the relief in latitude and altitude.

About Romania

The Romanians have an old and rich history. The ancient name of this territory was Dacia. It was inhabited
by the Getic and Dacian populations. After the wars against Rome, between 101-102 and 105-106, Dacia
became a Roman province providing the basis for the creation of both the Romanian people and language.
During the Middle Ages, the Romanians lived in three provinces, namely Wallachia, Moldavia and
Transylvania.
These got united during the 19th and 20th centuries, forming the modern Romania.
The population is made up to a large extent of Romanians, who represent 90% of the total number of inhabitants, to which Hungarians (around 7%), Gypsies, Germans, Ukrainians, Turks, Tartars, etc. can be added.
Of the total number of population, 55% live in towns and cities and the rest of 45% live in rural areas.
The capital of the country is Bucharest, founded in 1459, which has now a population of over 2 million
inhabitants.
The official language of the state is Romanian, belonging to the Romance family of languages; within the
local public administration, where the percentage of inhabitants belonging to another ethnic populations is
over 20%, their language can also be used.
The national currency is the Leu.
