The message of the Rector - anniversary message  

Dear colleagues, dear students,
100 years ago, Timisoara opened the first university in this part of the country. It was a process that had begun 14 years prior, in 1906, when the Municipal Council meeting on November 26 proposed a memorandum on the need to establish a polytechnic school. In 1907, Mayor Carol Telbisz submitted the memorandum to the Ministry of Public Instruction in Budapest. The proposal would be rejected. On April 29, 1912, the Municipal Council addressed the renowned professor Kornel Zelovich, from the Budapest Polytechnic, with the request to support and argue the need to establish a technical university in Timisoara. The council draws up a well-documented memorandum explaining the need to establish a second Polytechnic in Hungary. read more...

Un secol de învățământ superior în Banat (1920 - 2020)
Centenarul Universității Politehnica Timișoara


În 2018 am sărbătorit Centenarul României, în 2019 Centenarul Banatului, iar în 2020 sărbătorim Centenarul Politehnicii timișorene. E interesant cum istoria potrivește uneori lucrurile și le leagă între ele. Căci năzuințele bănățenilor de a avea un institut de învățământ superior nu ar fost posibile în absența Marii Uniri, tot așa cum fără alipirea Banatului la Patria Mamă nu s-ar fi putut crea acea emulație care a dus la înființarea Școalei Politecnice, prin decretul regal semnat de Majestatea Sa Ferdinand, la 11 noiembrie 1920, ridicând astfel Timișoara la rangul de Civitas Academica. Iar Politehnica, la rândul său, prin însăși misiunea sa, a contribuit într-un mod exemplar la propășirea economică, socială și culturală a Timișoarei, a Banatului, a României și chiar și dincolo de granițele acesteia. citește mai departe...
