Brief history of the Faculty

1920 — the founding of the “Şcoala Politehnică din Timișoara”, which has then successively changed into “Institutul Politehnic din Timișoara” (1947), “Universitatea Tehnică din Timișoara” (1990), Universitatea “Politehnica” din Timișoara (1995), and eventually Universitatea Politehnica Timișoara (2013)

1964 — the new specialization in Computers is started under the leadership of professor Alexandru Rogojan, within the Faculty of Electrical Engineering

1974 — the new specialization in Automation is started

1990 — the new Faculty of Automation and Computers is founded, with the two specializations mentioned

Temporal milestones
