Structure and Management
The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering (FAE) is one of the 15 faculties of the University Politehnica of Bucharest. The University is led by the Senate, and the executive management belongs to the Rector.
The faculties are not legal persons, thus they are represented only by the Rector directly, or indirectly by the designated Vice Rectors, in relationship with third parties. The Dean has only a mandate of representation limited at the professional level, not at the legal or the institutional level.

- Department of Aerospace Sciences ”Elie Carafoli”
- Department of Aeronautical Systems Engineering ”Nicolae Tipei”
- Department of Engineering Graphics and Industrial Design
- FAE Doctoral School
- Research Centre for Aeronautics and Space
The management of the faculty is provided by the Faculty Council, consisting of 29 members, faculty staff, university staff who teach the faculty students, and students:
The Faculty Council meets every 2-6 weeks and is taking strategic decisions, and validates the decisions of the Faculty Executive Board.
