Faculty > About us

Welcome, dear friends !

We address to you, enthusiastic high school graduates, friends and future students and we would like to thank you for accepting to receive our offer.
To choose a faculty, to go directly to a particular specialization within, means to select a career, a personal development direction and a path to success. The moment is very important and the choice should be done with the mind and soul, wisely and with confidence to the future. The faculty of Industrial Engineering and Robotics - I.E.R., our faculty, is celebrating this year, the age of 55 years.
For more than half a century, our faculty has formed specialists who can occupy different positions ranging from the designer of a carousel lathe with a sliding table of 16 meters, to the responsible in charge with the quality management in a company producing dairy products to the technologist who pursue the manufacturing of his brother toys, or to the credit officer who oversaw the dossier of his father helping him to obtain a bank loan.
Our faculty is known for its reliability, attention to students and its concern for continuous improvement activity, openness to new and different opportunities after graduation.
Undergraduate studies, with a duration of 4 years, are generously represented in our offer to those who want to be major players in a performance that reveals to the world the answer to the question "How it's made?" referring to anything surrounding us.
We invite you to join our team and if you do, we just say that you've made a good choice and we will do the best to not disappoint you.
Later, the facts will convince you! You will find that we are not preparing specialists for the present but for the future. And we are proud to prepare you!

The I.E.R. Faculty 3103 students are enrolled in the bachelor and master studies and 298 PhD students in internship.

The mission of the IER Faculty arises from the mission of the POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest.

POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest assumes the statute of the advanced research and educational university. The mission of the POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest has been thought over as a blend of education, research and innovation, which represents a key towards a knowledge-based society and economy, in compliance with the provisions of the 2020 European Strategy.
In this context, the IER Faculty mission is to serve the community at local and national level - in terms of excellence, through specific means: to create knowledge in the areas of national integrated classification, to use the knowledge in research, but also to find the way to transfer it to the students and to help them benefit in the best way, from the chosen educational opportunities, in respect with the regulations in force.

Orice demers managerial, fie el declarativ, orientativ şi/sau aplicativ, nu se poate substitui legislatiei în vigoare sau Cartei universitare a UPB.

Ca parte integrantă a Universităţii POLITEHNICA din Bucureşti, Facultatea de Inginerie Industrială și Robotică este loială principiilor şi valorilor consacrate în documentele strategice ale acesteia, Programul managerial 2016-2020 fiind unul dintre acestea.

Astfel, în concordanţă cu principiile de conducere practicate şi asumate de universitate, dar şi cu specificul facultăţii şi al structurii acesteia, la nivelul facultăţii IIR vor fi promovate şi susţinute următoarele principii:


a) libertatea şi autonomia academică, militându-se pentru întărirea autonomiei manageriale şi financiare a departamentelor şi centrelor din structura facultăţii;


b) principiul ”uşi deschise”, prin acceptarea dialogului la orice nivel, fără nicio restricţie, cu orice membru sau reprezentant al comunităţii facultăţii ca întreg sau ca parte, prin sensibilitate la problemele membrilor comunităţii;


c) conducere participativă, coerenţă şi profesionalism prin implicarea actorilor importanţi, cu reprezentativitate pentru un anumit domeniu, în luarea deciziilor;


d) creativitate şi flexibilitate, realism şi dinamism în procesul de conducere, prin adoptarea celor mai eficiente şi novatoare soluţii şi prin acceptarea delegării unor atribuţii asociate în mod normal conducerii facultăţii pentru activităţi specifice;


e) transparenţă totală a actului managerial, prin crearea unui avizier electronic pe site-ul facultăţii şi prin iniţierea de buletine informative în format electronic, cu descrieri ale evenimentelor în curs de derulare sau planificate, decizii ale conducerii facultăţii, anunţuri către cadre didactice sau studenţi transmise periodic către toţi membrii comunităţii, dar şi prin alte metode moderne;


f) încredere în oameni, comportament etic şi echitabil în raport cu toţi membrii comunităţii facultăţii şi univesităţii, soluţionarea problemelor fiecărui membru al acesteia, indiferent de importanţa aparentă a subiectului adus în prim-plan, onestitate şi loialitate faţă de membrii comunităţii facultăţii;


g) asumarea răspunderii pentru demersul managerial, prin prezentarea periodică a unor rapoarte şi dări de seamă, cu argumentarea motivării deciziilor luate (v. Anexa 2 – Indicatori de performanţă);


h) eficienţă financiară, cu respectarea principiilor financiare sănătoase în luarea deciziilor care implică modificări de cash-flow în trezoreria facultăţii.

Programul managerial 2012-2016

We all live under the same sky,
but we don’t all have the same horizon ...

The vision regarding the development of the Engineering and Management of Technological Systems Faculty leads to the image of a faculty of integrated education and research. This entity must represent a model of the harmonious blend of knowledge development and applications, a standard of excellence at this university and in the country, a benchmark in the domain for the national and international academic and socio-economic network, a smart interface between the academic community and the socio-economic one, whose graduates pursue a successful career. The  general atmosphere in the faculty must be of harmony and collegiality among all the members of the community – academic staff, researchers, students, administrative personnel. In the same manner the relationship with parents or industrial partners should follow the same rules.
