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.
