The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering (FAE) Mission is defined in the UPB Charter and is that of advanced research and education, as an intersection of education (formative process) and scientific research, by generating knowledge and innovation, as main objectives of a knowledge based society and economy.
FAE produces intelectuals, namely aerospace engineers and researchers, at the three levels of the university education: bachelor, master, and doctorate. Also, the faculty is an important part of the national aerospace scientific research system.
FAE achieved an exceptional prestige, internationally reknown for its competitive graduates. FAE is now on a rising trend, close to the status of a professional excellence niche.
The aeronautical and spatial domain is one at the edge of knowledge, highly complex and in the forefront of technology. The school in this domain educates a professional ellite. Consequently, the adequate strategy is one of differentiation and of excellence, of performance based on high demands.
The motivational engine of the faculty works well in Romania for over a century: the passion for aviation and astronautics.
“It is a great profession. There is the fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer’s high privilege.
The great liability of the engineer compared to men of other professions is that his works are out in the open where all can see them. His acts, step by step, are in hard substance. He cannot bury his mistakes in the grave like the doctors. He cannot argue them into thin air or blame the judge like the lawyers. He cannot, like the architects, cover his failures with trees and vines. He cannot, like the politicians, screen his shortcomings by blaming his opponents and hope the people will forget. The engineer simply cannot deny he did it. If his works do not work, he is damned…
On the other hand, unlike the doctor his is not a life among the weak. Unlike the soldier, destruction is not his purpose. Unlike the lawyer, quarrels are not his daily bread. To the engineer falls the job of clothing the bare bones of science with life, comfort, and hope. No doubt as years go by the people forget which engineer did it, even if they ever knew. Or some politician puts his name on it. Or they credit it to some promoter who used other people’s money . . . But the engineer himself looks back at the unending stream of goodness which flows from his successes with satisfactions that few professions may know. And the verdict of his fellow professionals is all the accolade he wants.”
