Welcome to the Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Food Sciences!
Presentation of the Faculty and Study Programs
In response to a growing demand for environmental education, food processing technologies as well as food safety, and mountain area agriculture, especially in less advanced countries, the FIMSA developed several science curriculum for life sciences available for students starting with early 1992. The current science programs emphasized disciplinary strength but with sufficient integrative courses that students were able to gain an appreciation of the complexity of societal demands and the need for interdisciplinary investigations of the stringent problems and solutions that we are confronting nowadays.
The mission of the Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Food Science is to train specialists with high professional, general and specialized skills. Besides professional training, the mission of the faculty is reflected in the creation of social, human, intellectual and spiritual values. This goal includes graduates’responsibility regarding the implementation of the three security-nutrition-food safety norms, environmental protection and sustainable use of naturel biogical resources by humans, and also rural development.

Environmental Engineering and Protection in Agriculture (Bachelor Degree Studies) and Systems of Control and Evaluation of Environmental Quality (Master Degree Studies) aim to train specialists in the fields of conservation, environmental planning and systematization of agricultural land.
Technology of Agricultural Products Processing (Bachelor Degree Studies) and Food Control Expertise (Master Degree Studies) have the mission to train specialists in the field of raw materials and food conditioning and production of processed foods with high biological value and high degree of innocuity, in accordance with European standards.
The specialization of Mountain Agriculture (Bachelor Degree Studies) aims the formation of engineers in agricultural, horticulture, animal breeding and land exploitation sciences in the hilly and mountainous area.
Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Food Science is equipped with laboratories for fundamental disciplines in this domain, for technological engineering disciplines, and also for applied research and technological transfer.
Lecture rooms are equipped with modern devices and equipment for technological processes simulation and for environmental processes monitoring, and also have Internet access to databases of scientific documentation. The faculty has a library with a total of over 16,000 titles, represented by books and specialty journals.
Scientific research is oriented towards the specific areas of interest and is linked to international research trends. At the faculty level, scientific research activities are performed by our research centres accredited by CNCSIS:
-The Scientific Research Center: Biotechnology and applied engineering sciences (type B center, accredited CNCSIS)
-The Research and Expertise Center of natural resources and environment (type C center, accredited CNCSIS)
Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Food Science has cooperation, mobility and international research programs with universities or institutions from abroad, both on educational line and research line: Studies University of Molise (Italy), University of Lutton (England), University of Thessaly Volos, University Macedonia Thessaloniki (Greece), University Bretagne Occidentale of Brest, Compiegne University of Technology, Savoie Chemberry University (France), University of Zaragoza (Spain), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), University of Life Sciences Wageningen (Netherlands), University of Kaunas (Lithuania).
These collaborations allow the faculty to provide a large number of mobility both for students and teachers and to integrate the teaching staff in research networks created with institutions from abroad.
