UTCB’s international partnerships have developed over the last 25 years as a result of participation in the 15 European TEMPUS projects, of which it has coordinated 7. Based on the cooperation within these projects, in 1998 UTCB initiated a network project for European Civil Engineering Education and Training (EUCEET), which was coordinated by ENPC Paris and involved 132 partners from 29 European countries. During the 12 years of activity, the inter-institutional relations of the university have developed and consolidated, increasing at the same time its international visibility. Thus, new perspectives were opened, materialized by concluding new cooperation agreements with institutions from 3 other continents.
Increasing the visibility and strengthening UTCB’s position in the international community continue to be major objectives of the internationalization process. An essential role is played by the promotion of cooperation with prestigious universities and joint research projects, through the direct involvement of the Department of International Relations. In addition to the more than 60 bilateral agreements with European universities under the Erasmus + program, UTCB has various other types of agreements concluded with higher education institutions in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
