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". After 1990, with the diversification of specialization areas, Institute of Mining Petrosani became The Technical University (1991) and then the University of Petrosani (1995). Taking as a basis the strong academic tradition and prestige enjoyed at home and abroad, our University today provides the necessary conditions for its students to acquire high qualification in many different areas, training is carried out at all levels of education.
