Donate to the Alumni Politehnica Aerospace Engineering Association, support the cause of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering!

We need your support, no amount is too small. If you were students, you will understand why. If the faculty gave you something of value, maybe you can give something back. The Faculty lives through the passion of some of its graduates, but we need also your support!



The treasury of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering is represented by its graduates, and we would love to work together to recover and to preserve it. Starting with the Golden Book of the Faculty written by Professor Virgil Stanciu, Dean 2008-2016, we have compiled the graduates database. The registration of the graduates in the association will hopefully facilitate the enhancement, the update, and the eventual correction of the database.

The aviation higher education in the University Politehnica of Bucharest has a tradition of almost 90 years. The first generations of aviation engineers were the graduates of the Aviation Section of the Faculty of Mechanics and Electricity (1930-1941), of the Faculty of Electro-Mechanics (1946-1947), and of the Faculty of Mechanics (1948-1971), respectively. The Faculty of Aerospace Constructions yields its first series of graduates in 1972. After just two years, in 1974, the faculty changes its name in the Faculty of Aircraft, and in 1996 the current name is established: Faculty of Aerospace Engineering.
