- About -

The SCAP research center activates within the Faculty of Automation, Computers, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, „Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati.
The Faculty of Automation, Computer, Electrical and Electronic Engineering has two main directions of activity, education and research, and it is completed by the socially fulfilled role in the local and regional geographic space.

Unique through its profile in the South-East of the country, the Faculty offers high-school graduates the necessary conditions to acquire skills and competences in the areas of Automation, Computers and Information Technology, Electrical Engineering and Electronic Engineering.

The educational activity carried out at the Faculty aims at the training of highly qualified specialists able to integrate and capitalize on their skills in industry, research or other areas of economic and social life. The curricula developed in the Faculty are based on the pedagogical principle of combining theoretical and applicative aspects to develop those competences and abilities that will ensure graduates’ access to elite professional positions in institutions or companies. The curricula proposed for the fields of study in the Faculty comply with the national and international educational standards and are in accordance with the requirements of the labor market. The Faculty provides the appropriate framework for training that facilitates graduates’ access to a job immediately after graduation, on an equal footing with young people from other European countries.

The scientific research in the faculty is carried out in specialized laboratories and research centers through specific or multidisciplinary projects.

The results of the research activity, carried out by the teams of Professors and Master or PhD students in the Faculty, are capitalized through organizing conferences, participating in national and international scientific events, or publishing articles in journals indexed in international databases. The participation with projects at competitions to obtain funding, building international partnerships or with regional economic units to capitalize the research results and the technology transfer is a characteristic of the research activity carried out in the Faculty.

From a social point of view, the Faculty of Automation, Computers, Electrical Engineering and Electronics serves the South-Eastern geographical region of Romania, that includes the counties of Galati, Brăila, Vrancea and Tulcea, with a population of over 1 million inhabitants. This region is one of the country's major economic areas but is currently confronted with problems of re-industrialization and professional adaptation of the labor force. In this context, the curricula proposed by the Faculty of Automation, Computers, Electrical Engineering and Electronics offer to the young people from the South-East of Romania the possibility of attending higher education in the area, in top-level technology areas and under quality conditions of the educational process, that are traditionally edified at “Dunărea de Jos” University. The necessity of modernizing and refurbishing some economic units in the area, as well as the establishment of new companies or subsidiaries of large companies in the country and abroad, led to an increase in the demand for graduates from the specializations of the Faculty.

The curricula at the Faculty of Automation, Computers, Electrical Engineering and Electronics make an important contribution to the accomplishment of the educational offer of “Dunărea de Jos” University, and through the research activity carried out in the Faculty, the promotion of science and technology in the spirit of ethics and democracy is realized. Finally, it is worth mentioning a performance indicator of the Faculty: the higher degree of employability of the graduates of the Faculty in local and national institutions and companies, or in large international companies.

In 2010, the Department of Automation and Electrical Engineering was constituted, bringing together three departments, as follows: the Department of Automatic and Industrial Informatics (AII), the Department of Electrotechnics, Machinery and Electrical Installations (EMIE) and the Department of Systems of Conversion of Electrical Energy (ISCEE).

The SCAP Research Center operates in the Department of Automaton and Electrical Engineering. In this research center there are 14 Professors and Researchers, the activities being oriented towards mathematical modeling and control of industrial processes. The center also has modern and high-quality logistics with high-level scientific equipment, the most important being decribed in Section 6 - Research Center Infrastructure.

The correspondence of RDI activities with intelligent specialization areas for the 2014-2020 strategic cycle consists of: 1. Information and communication technology. Space and security and 2. Energy, environment and climate change.
