# 1201-1400

QS World University Rankings

The University was founded by the decree law no. 660 issued on 30 December 1944, which stipulates that a university must be created in western Romania. Its first faculties either were dissolved or became independent institutions. These independent higher education institutions became a sole university at the end of September 1962. By 1968, our institution had become an independent university, with a prestigious academic staff; this was the ideal for which many leading Romanian intellectuals, especially those from the Banat region, had fought. Unfortunately, there followed a difficult period for Humanities and Exact Sciences. Fields of study such as Music, Fine arts, History, Geography, Biology, and Chemistry disappeared one by one; Philology was considerably reduced. As a result, many of the faculties were transferred to other institutions. 1989, the year of the Romanian revolution, was a turning point in the evolution of our university. It led to the present-day conditions. That is why the current structures and achievements make the University a trusted partner. An essential mentality change took place in the perception of the academic institution, in accordance with the democratic institutions in Western Europe. A substantial institutional reform was carried out, beginning with the redefining of the university’s mission by establishing its objectives.
