TUM - Technical University of Moldova

Company description
The Technical University of Moldova (TUM) - the only higher technical educational institution in the Republic of Moldova. The principal goal of the Technical University of Moldova is to offer qualitative studies by the combining of education, research and innovation, to the young generation, who will contribute to the edification of a solid, knowledge-based society and economy, and to form the personality of a creative and insightful student.TUM was founded in 1964, having at its basis three engineering faculties. At present, the University comprises 10 faculties, the teaching-didactic and engineering staff which counts over 1000 lecturers, about 400 of which possess scientific-didactic titles of Academician, DSC, PhD, Professor and Associate Professor, Senior lecturer. At present TUM has a contingent of more than 18000 students (more than 12680 at the full time section), which are studying at 80 specialities and specializations within 10 faculties: "Energetics", "Engineering and Management in Machine Building", "Engineering and Management in Mechanics", "Computers, Informatics and Microelectronics", "Radioelectronics and Telecommunications", "Technology and Management in Food Industry", "Textile Industry", "Cadastre, Geodesy and Constructions", "Urbanism and Architecture", "Economic Engineering and Business". At TUM there are also organized postgraduate studies (about 690 students continue their Master's degree studies and about 134 continue PhD postgraduate studies). There are organized requalification courses of the teaching staff.

Fields of Activity
  • Teaching
  • Research
  • Consulting
  • Elaboration and testing of the systems for renevable energies conversion.

Organization and departments
At the same time (1964) was founded the department “Theory of Mechanisms and Parts of machine”. Since 1990 the Centre for the Elaboration of Renewable Energy Conversion Systems (CERECS) at TUM worked on the study and design of technological systems for wind energy conversion and also on the flowing water kinetic energy conversion without dam construction. In 2008 year in accordance with Bologna process the 2nd cycle study was founded at the Department of the Theory of Mechanisms and Machine Parts in field “Engineering of Renewable Energy Conversion Systems”.
