ERASMUS INCOMING STUDENTS
The University of Petrosani has a long and beautiful tradition, being the successor of the Institute of Mining, which operated in Bucharest over 80 years and in the academic year 1957 to 1958 started in Petrosani. Only a few universities can take pride in such a descent certified by decree of A.I.Cuza in 1864 that established the "School of Bridges, Highways, Mines and Architecture".
