ETTI

My activity as student

The Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology is the place where I learned to see the world with the third eye.

In UPB I learned to have a technical perspective on the whole world but to also understand people better. It is said that “any technology, advanced enough, cannot be distinguished from magic” (Arthur C. Clarke). This is also the reason why I was and still am passionate about the ETTI faculty, because, throughout all of these years, this is what I actually felt I was studying.

The years of my studency helped me to develop the ability to find solutions to complex problems regardless of the context or the resources that I have. University gave me the chance to meet a lot of smart people who helped me to grow both professionally and personally and during my time here I discovered opportunities that I had not imagined before.

My activity as an academic mentor

In ETTI I also had the opportunity to put into practice one of the passions of my life – teaching.

I was invited several times to speak at SAIM Lab on technical topics such as Cybersecurity, Blockchain, Telecommunications and Financial Fraud:

Wearing many hats, as an engineer and faculty’s alumni or company’s representative, I have been the coordinator for 11 diploma projects and worked together with my students for 5 years in total.

My teaching activity

Teaching others is one of the passions of my life. During my professional life I experienced all types of teaching I could:

Description

The Romanian school of Electronics and Telecommunications was set up in 1920 as part of the Polytechnic School of Bucharest. This later developed as a distinct specialization called Telephony -Telegraphy within the Faculty of Electromechanics (1924), which will later evolve as a distinct department called Electrocommunications (1929). The Faculty of Electronics was set up in 1953 as a branch of the Faculty of Electromechanics, including the departments of Electronics, Radiocommunications and Telephony -Telegraphy.

The Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology has an impressive location of about 20,000 sqm in the Leu campus. This campus offers very good conditions. The Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology occupies two buildings with laboratories and classes at the centre of the campus. Other important buildings are the Students’ Centre, with about 500 comfortable rooms, the gym, the medical centre, three restaurants, etc. The Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology provides its undergraduate and graduate students with a wide range of educational opportunities.

The teaching staff, having rich experience in research, teach classes both to graduate and undergratuate students in the fields of Electronics, Microelectronics, Computer Engineering and Telecommunications. In all these fields the emphasis is on acquiring both theoretical and practical knowledge. All courses are devised so as to meet all educational and training requirements in accordance with the current top technology in order to be useful to the industry and business organizations based on technology transfer in Romania. As a result of the strong collaboration with the industry and business environment, the faculty has answered the increase in the graduates recruitment demand by means of a larger amount of knowledge, including a degree in both the technological field and in the economic and managerial one.
