Located in the Northwestern region of Romania, the city was first attested during the Roman occupation of Dacia, in 106 A.D. Since the middle of the 16th century, the city became the main commercial center of Transylvania and one of the most important ones in Eastern Europe. Nowadays, 400.000 people call this city home.

Having a strong multi-cultural nature, Cluj-Napoca is inhabited by Romanians, Hungarians, Germans, Jews and other ethnic groups. As multi-culturalism enables the exchange of ideas, higher education naturally developed during the last century, becoming one of the major strengths of the city.

Among them, The Technical University of Cluj-Napoca represents the main center for engineering sciences and related fields, with 70 research centers, 9 faculties, over 650 academic staff and over 12.000 students which follow courses in 42 specializations (Bsc, Msc, PhD, PostDoc) from 20 fields of study.
