THE DEAN'S MESSAGE

The Faculty of Chemistry, Biology, Geography (CBG) was founded in 1991, moment which marked the beginning of a complex process of reappereance - in the portfolio of the West University of Timisoara - of the study fields, abusively abolished by the communist regime.
Our educational offer includes various study programs, subsumed in four areas of science: biology, chemistry, geography, environmental science.
In the last few years, the CBG has accomplished significant developments driven by the university management, which concerned the universities' transition as a whole, from the Humboldtian model centered on the formation of researchers, towards the civic model, focused on the training of specialists with high chances of employability. At this moment, inthe CBG, we are focusing on training the competencies corresponding to the qualifications that our university diplomas provide, and also on intensifying collaborations with socio-economic partners, to multiply internships within potential employers. At masters and doctoral level, students are integrated into college research projects or themes, in our laboratories and centers, which have run many national and international projects and whose results, placing the faculty on meritorious places in the research hierarchies, within UVT and beyond. The CBG carries out educational and research partnerships with numerous European universities from France, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, the Czech Republic, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Turkey, as well as in the US and Canada, offering students the opportunity to listen to partner-supported courses, or to pursue internships in these countries.
The values we promote are: integrity, responsibility, constructive solidarity, involvement and dynamism.
Our vision for CBG is, that of a dynamic, sustainable, competitive and prestigious faculty, at international level in the field of education and research.
The mission we are proposing for the next four years is to increase the attractiveness of the CBG, by defining an educational offer in line with social and economic development, and the competitive context, providing a quality instructive-educational process and the more profitable use of research expertise, in national and international projects.
You are welcome to be part of CBG, as a student, master or doctoral student, associate professor or partner in our educational, research and social projects and actions.
