The University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca

Higher agricultural education in Cluj is one of the most prestigious in Europe, both in education and in scientific research.
During its existence of more than 140 years, the agronomic school of Cluj has benefited from the contributions of many outstanding personalities of Romanian scientific life.
University graduates, specialized in agriculture, horticulture, animal science, biotechnology and veterinary sciences, have yielded outstanding results in the production process, as well as in scientific research conducted in Romanian and abroad.
Our University’s success is widely acknowledged, as it has both national and international accreditation.
After 1990, the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca has witnessed impressive developments; its educational offer has been diversified, many new departments have been established, where Romanian and foreign students study together. Currently, the academic staff and the students (more than 7000) benefit from an exceptional learning environment for their theoretical and practical training: lecture halls, laboratories, reading rooms, experimental research facilities, veterinary clinics and a fully equipped library.
A significant part of the academic staff, especially younger academics and PhD students have benefited from study and research scholarships at universities from countries with a highly developed agriculture.
Cooperation with higher education institutions and agri­cultural production units from EC member countries ensures the framework for the practical training of students at the four faculties of USAMV.
International relations of USAMV include collaboration with universities and research institutes from over 50 countries from Europe, Africa, Asia, North-and South America. It is our strong belief that in the years to come, USAMV will continue to develop, contributing, by its high standards of education, to the progress and modernization of Romanian n agriculture.
The university’s new strategy aims at extending and promo­ting international relations, modernizing the entire education process, both in teaching, research and outreach, fully complying with UE standards.
At present, the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca is one of the most prestigious universities in Romanian; it is a member in the Romanian Consortium of Universities of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, a member in the Consortium of Universities of Cluj-Napoca and also a member in the European University Association, by which it was assessed in 2003.
The University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca is the heir of the prestigious school of agriculture founded over 130 years ago in October 1869 under the name of the Cluj-Manastur Institute for Agronomic Education. In 1906 the institute's rank changed to that of The Cluj Academy of Agriculture. For nearly 50 years after its foundation, until the 1920-ies, studying agronomy in Cluj-Napoca meant studying agriculture. At that time the degree studies lasted three years. After the Romanian national state was established in 1918 opened up a new stage in the development of agronomic studies arise. Due to the efforts and competence of many generations of professors and their disciples, agronomic studies witnessed an increase and a true development in those years.
Since 1921 the length of the agronomic undergraduate degree studies increased to four years out of which three years were dedicated to theoretical studies and the fourth year to agricultural practice on a farm. From 1922 on the graduates received the Diploma of Agricultural Engineering and in 1929 the reform of the agronomic higher education lead to the new name of the Academy of High Agronomic Studies. The duration of the undergraduate degree studies increased from that date to five years.
Between 1940-1945 the Agricultural Academy of Cluj-Napoca - the professors, the students and a part of its agricultural implements took refuge in Timisoara, where it functioned under the name of 'The Cluj-Timisoara Faculty of Agronomy", and in 1945 the "faculty" returned to its native city. In 1948 the name of the university was changed again to that of The Agronomic Institute, initially having only one faculty: The Faculty of Agriculture and starting in 1959 a department for Animal Husbandry. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine was founded in 1962 and the Faculty of Animal Sciences in 1968. Between 1970-1975 within the Faculty of Agriculture operated the Department of Agricultural Economics. In 1977 the Department of Horticulture joined the faculty of agriculture which thus became the Faculty of Agriculture and Horticulture. Between 1978-1987 the Agronomic Institute had only two faculties: the Faculty of Agriculture and Horticulture and the Faculty of Animal Sciences and Veterinary Medicine. These were joined in 1987 to be only one Faculty of Agronomy.
In 1990 the university reorganised itself and has since then four faculties: Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine. It has also increased its variety of offering degrees: Bachelor of Science (5 years), Master of Science (1 years), Ph.D. (4 years), distance learning (6 years) and college (3 years or short-term studies) system. In 1991 the Agronomic Institute changed its name to the University of Agricultural Sciences which since 1995 has become the University of Agricultural Sciences and of Veterinary Medicine.
The new strategy of the university includes besides an increase in international relations, modernised teaching and learning, modernised and extended research in agreement with the standards of the European Union. Since 1998 the university applies the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) making the assessment system more compatible with European standards.
At present the University of Agricultural Sciences and of Veterinary Medicine is one of the best of its kind in Romania. It is a member of the Romanian Consortium of the Universities of Agricultural Sciences and of Veterinary Medicine as well as a member of the Consortium of the Universities of Cluj-Napoca. USAMV is a member of the Association of European Universities and has established international co-operation relationships with universities and research institutes of more than 50 countries of Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa.
