Results of the English Test 19 July 2019
Candidates who failed the test are expected to compete for the programs of studies in Romanian. The reason for this selection is the interest of the future students to avoid the trouble to study in a foreign language which they do not manage well enough.
Applications 15-20 July 2019 between 9 am – 4 pm at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering Office in Polizu Campus Building A ground floor
Admission contest 22 an 23 July 2019 from 10 am – candidates for studies in English will take a language proficiency test on 19 July at the Faculty of Engineering in Foreign Languages.
Number of Places 2019
In 2019 the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering offers 220 places without tuition fee at undergraduate level. Additionally, 40 places with tuition fee are on offer. These are distributed as follows:
IA – 180 places w/o fee for studies in Romanian, programs of studies CA, SP, EIA, IMA, DA, and additionally 5 places reserved for graduates of rural high schools.
IA.x – 28 places with fee for studies in Romanian, programs of studies CA, SP, EIA, IMA, DA
IAen – 40 places w/o fee for studies in English, program of studies NA, and additionally 1 place reserved for graduates of rural high schools.
IAen.x – 12 places with fee for studies in English, program of studies NA
We recommend to the candidates to opt for ”with fee” too, even if they do not want to pay a tuition fee. Why? Because if the candidates do not succeed initially to catch one of the 220 tuition free places, if the ”with tax” option is not selected, they will be irreversibly redistributed to other faculties. If the option is there, they will be kept in the list of our faculty. From our past experience, 5 to 10% of the candidates initially admitted withdraw and the ”with tax” list automatically promotes to the ”tax free” zone, within the number of these freed places.
The graduates of rural high schools compete separately from the rest of the candidates. A minimal grade of 5.00 secures a place without tax for them, out of the 220, on the reserved places listed above.
Also, Romanians from everywhere benefit from a number of additional places without tax, and without tax and a scholarship, respectively. Please, see the International Students page for the methodology.

The grading algorithm is quite simple: the overall average is formed with 20% of the BAC average and 80% of the average of the written tests (provided that it is over 5.00!). All you have to do is make sure you’re in the top 220!
On 19 July 2019, 9 am, at the Faculty of Engineering Studies in Foreign Languages (FILS), the candidates who choose Air Navigation will take an English language proficiency test, or submit an English language certificate Level B2 (advanced) to be used as an equivalent. The test ends with a selective result like Passed / Failed.
