I. GENERAL INFORMATION

The Faculty was founded in 1963 (1963-1967 – Faculty of Electrotechnics from which the years 1963-1964 in the State University and the years 1964-1967 at the Polytechnic Institute “S. Lazo”, in the years 1967-2014 – Faculty of Energetics and from 2014 – Faculty of Energetics and Electrical Engineering).

The first promotion of the faculty (1964) numbered 66 graduates, and the 51st promotion ( 2014 year) – 137 graduates. The opening of the faculty coincided with the intense electrification of all the branches of national economy: construction of large thermal power plants (Chisinau, Balti, Cuciurgan), new transmission and distribution of electricity, electrification of rural areas, transport, industrial and construction units and the opening of several enterprises with electrotechnical character – “Electromasina”, “Hidropompa”, “Vibroaparat” etc.

 

II. FACULTY STRUCTURE

  • Department “Theoretical Bases of Electrotechnics”
  • Department “Power Engineering”
  • Department “Electromechanics and Metrology”
  • Department “Thermotechnics and Management in Energetics “
  • Department “Physical Education”

Faculty possesses 33 specialized laboratories, 6 computer rooms; two research, design and consultancy centers, , a didactic-methodical center and a center for students’ creativity.

 

III. TEACHING STAFF

At the faculty activate 59 teachers, including a corresponding member of ASRM, five doctors habilitate and university professors 15 PhDs, associate professors. In the last five years there have been sustained three PhD thesis in technics.

For many years at the Faculty departments it is practiced the part time hiring of the best graduates of the faculty as teachers, those employed in enterprises and companies, design organizations and others in this field, which is very important as it ensures an effective cooperation between the academic area and that of production and design.

VII.  INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

Throughout the whole period of activity within the faculty there were presented PhD theses and Doctor Habilitat theses, there were carried out research projects in collaboration with several universities in Moldova and abroad (Romania, France, Ukraine, USA, Russian Federation , Belgium, etc.).

Based on these collaborations and projects there were organized a series of conferences and national and international symposiums such as:

  • National Technical-Scientific Conference of Contributors, PhD candidates and students, held annually;
  • SIELMEN International Conference, held every two years since 1997.

In 2015  the 10th edition (jubilee) SIELMEN conference carried out its work.

 

VIII. GRADUATES

Our graduates are in high demand because they possess a high level of training that allows them to activate successfully in various fields. Some graduates  manifested themselves as manufacture organizers, as leaders of large collectives. Others have become scientists, inventors, or simply good specialists at workplace.
