Mission: University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest (UPB) assumes the mission to train specialists in different technical fields that are able to use valuable scientific, technical and cultural knowledge, to contribute to the technological, economic and social-cultural progress of the Romanian society and the contemporary world. UPB ensures a performant education, developed and perfected through a complex research activity, continuing the tradition of the Polytechnic School of Bucharest, according to the exigencies and the means offered by the modern information society. It aims to create a new technical university profile, which promotes forms of training adapted to the requirements of a competing society, subject to the integration process in the European and international community. Its main mission is to train an engineer capable of adapting to the requirements of market economy and new technologies, with an economic and managerial knowledge and promote the principles of sustainable development and environmental protection. To do this, he must be formed according to the modern principle of direct participation in choosing his formative trajectory and to be included in a learning process that will give him real chances to compete on the labour market. University Politehnica of Bucharest has the mission to bring together education, training and scientific research. The role of this intersection is to increase knowledge and innovation, two key concepts of knowledge-based economy and society. In a time of globalization, challenges are becoming more and more complex. The university must have strong management, university autonomy and relevant leadership structures to integrate in this context. The institutionalization of several actions, such as student exchanges, the creation of connections in scientific research, and renowned teachers can help speed up the process and improve education. The most important mission of the university is to produce knowledge through scientific research. It applies the theoretical and practical knowledge in the professional training of the students, with the aim of initiating them in the chosen field.

Vision: The UPB vision for the internationalization process proposes an organizational project through which the university strengthens its position at a regional, European and global level, providing educational and research services in accordance with the needs of the direct beneficiaries and the community to which it belongs. Strengthening the international dimension is expected to bring about improvements in education and research by encouraging mobility, cooperation and exchange of experience of the academic community by increasing the multicultural dimension and attracting more foreign students, leading to an improvement in the international reputation of UPB.
