About the University

TUIASI students have access to top notch technical studies, as the university is one of the best in the country and Eastern Europe. Great professors, relevant courses and new labs await you.

Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iaşi has the oldest tradition in engineering education in Romania. Since its foundation, TUIASI has given priority to research, interdisciplinary approach, innovation, teaching and, during the last two decades, internationalisation. Our main goal of developing ‘technology for the people around us’ has always been at the core of TUIASI’s research, teaching and technological transfer activities. This goal has made us continuously build and develop the university. It now has about 13.000 students, 23 research and excellence centres and 8 research teams and accredited research labs. TUIASI has signed over 303 Erasmus agreements with 25 countries, so you’ll meet people from all around the world. And did you know that the University’s library is one of the most beautiful libraries in the world, competing with the likes of Trinity College Library in Dublin and the National Library of France?

The university is centred around the educational needs of the students, constantly improving its facilities and its curricula to meet the ever changing demands in the work field. TUIASI has strong ties with national and international businesses, big companies like Microsoft, Delphi, Continental, Amazon and many others were the Technical University’s students and alumni often end up as interns or employees.

The core of TUIASI – Its community

The University is a very tight community. The students, administrative staff and teachers meet on a regular basis and work together on common projects – building race cars or restarting a Romanian car brand – ARO –, building interesting and fun structures, like a model building made out of spaghetti or a Christmas tree made up of various 3D shapes and also joining forces to compete in international math and engineering challenges, coming back home each year with gold, bronze and silver medals.

This collaboration extends to the campus – there are weekly meetings with the students who live on campus in order to improve their lifestyle and lodgings. At the students’ request, two new lecture halls have been built last year, equipped with fast Internet connection and open late in the night, and also two around the clock wash stations. In 2017, the campus staff is working on intelligent bike parking systems and revitalising the green areas in and around the campus.

There are 13 student associations at TUIASI – BEST, AIESEC and one for each of the 11 faculties – dedicated to promoting students’ rights, extracurricular and non-formal learning and, of course, having lots of fun. These organisations often hold a variety of cultural and professional events, like workshops, shows, trips and sports competitions.
