Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest (TUB)
Bd. Lacul Tei 124 Sector 2
Higher education in Civil Engineering in Romania came into being in 1818 with a School for Land Surveyors, which was followed in 1864 by The School of Bridges and Roads, Mines and Architecture, transformed in 1888 into The National School of Bridges and Roads. In 1921 it became the Polytechnic School of Bucharest where civil engineers were trained in the Division of Civil Engineering, which was named the Faculty of Civil Engineering in 1938. As a result of Education Reform in 1948, the Faculty of Civil Engineering separated from the Polytechnic School and became an independent higher education establishment called the Civil Engineering Institute Bucharest. In1994 it adopted the present name-The Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest, the only Romanian university devoted entirely to engineering education in civil engineering and related fields.
The University has extensive experience in preparing distance learning materials and has an excellent educational and research track record on both practice and theory in hydrology, hydrogeology and water management, e.g. the VICAIRE project, a distance learning course under the coordination of Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne - Switzerland.
