About us

The traditions of metallurgical education in Romania are old, having their origin in the development of ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy on the territory of our country. Thus, after the appearance of the first metallurgical industrial units in Banat, in the 18th century, on January 23, 1729, the school of Mines and Ferrous Metallurgy from Oravita was founded, then transferred, after 60 years, to Resita, where in 1771 put into operation the new plant with 2 large blast furnaces for that time and 3 iron grout workshops: one for tool iron and another for polishing.

The first notions of metallurgy are introduced by Gheorghe Asachi in 1813 in the engineering courses at the Greek school in Iasi. In a study from 1842, carried out by a commission of which Gheorghe Asachi was a member, it was proposed to introduce a course in Metallurgy in the third year at the section of Operating Engineers.

In 1867, the school of Bridges, Roads and Mines was re-established by decree for a period of 5 years. in the fourth year there were two sections:
– Bridges and roads;
– Mine, which also included Metallurgy courses.

These courses included not only strict knowledge of metallurgy but also a broader knowledge of the field of secondary processing and the use of metals and alloys. Over time, the course was called “Metal Technology,” a name that has survived to the present day.

Romanian achievements !

Bucharest Predeal railway

Anghel Saligny railway bridge

Parisian August Eiffel Tower

Did you know that ...

Bucharest Predeal Railway

In 1878, Panculescu returned to the country to build the Bucharest-Predeal railway. At that time, the engineer invented a system for joining railway sleepers, which would revolutionize metal constructions.
Impressed by the Romanian engineer's project, Gustave Eiffel travels especially to Valenii de Munte to meet Panculescu.
In 1879, in the house where the Nicolae Iorga Museum is now located, the Frenchman was hosted by Panculescu and was impressed by the genius of the Romanian invention.
Known in France, anonymous in Romania

Anghel Saligny railway bridge

The King Carol I Bridge (renamed the Anghel Saligny Bridge during the communist period) was built between 1890 and 1895 to ensure the railway connection between Bucharest and Constanța.
The bridge over the Danube has a central opening of 190 meters and another 4 openings of 140 meters, next to a viaduct with 15 openings of 60 meters.
The central opening of 190 m was the largest in Continental Europe.

Parisian August Eiffel Tower

On each piece of metal in the tower it says: "Made in Resita - Romania"
Eiffel Tower, was built after a technology invented in Romania by engineer Gheorghe Panculescu.
Together they discussed the adaptation of the technique invented by Panculescu to the construction of the tower, using metal subassemblies made on the ground and assembled afterwards, as the work progressed.
It is also interesting that the destiny of the two engineers was to end, in the same year, 1922.
