About the University

     

    “an university for life and agriculture through top quality education and research”

    University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest (USAMV) is the oldest and largest institution of higher agronomic education in Romania, founded in 1852, where the tradition and modernity successfully meet.

    Our university provides BSc, MSc and PhD education and scientific research activities in order to train top specialists whose competences meet the demands of the labor market in the fundamental fields of "Engineering Sciences" and "Biological and biomedical sciences".

    USAMV offers students both the necessary adequate infrastructure for education and research, fully equipped laboratories and scientific research stations, and great opportunities for spending their free time in the university.

    Currently, the university consists of 7 faculties (Agriculture; Horticulture; Animal Sciences; Veterinary Medicine; Land Reclamation and Environmental Engineering; Biotechnologies; Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and Rural Development) and 2 branches (in Călărași and Slatina), comprising 12,000 enrolled students, and multidisciplinary research laboratories as well as a greenhouse, all designed to European standards, providing competitiveness both at national and international level.

    USAMV belongs to the network of public higher education institutions recognized with the “High level of academic trust” award in 2010, which programmes of study are accredited/authorized.

     

    Where we are

     

    Our university is located in Bucharest, the capital of the country, in the south-east part of Romania. It is a multicampus university (Agronomie Herăstrău and Medicină Veterinară Cotroceni Campus), with many facilities ranging from experimental fields to student amenities (11 dormitories, canteens, a Sports Complex, a Student Cultural Center, a Counseling and Career Guidance Center etc.).

     

    History

     

    In 1852 Prince Barbu Ştirbei signed the establishment act of the Pantelimon Agricultural Institute that started its activity in 1853. Only two years later, in 1855, the School for Veterinary Education was inaugurated. In 1867 the curriculum also included forestry, and agronomic education in Bucharest developed under the name of The Central School of Agriculture and Forestry. The first Romanian teaching and experimental farm was established in 1873. In 1893 the headquarters of the School moved to Mărăşti Boulevard and the foundation of agronomic higher education was laid in 1915, when the School changed its name to the Herăstrău Agricultural College. In 1921 the Veterinary Medical College became the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest.

    In 1929, the Herăstrău Agricultural College became the Academy of Higher Agronomic Education of Bucharest.
