Mohammed Asfour, class of 2020

Amongst other Top Universities, UPT has one of the finest educational facilities with many practical applications, equipped with world class technological system, providing additional benefits to foreign students. This made me enroll for undergraduate studies and now presently a Master student studying Communication Network Engineering due to the impeccable knowledge I acquired from the well learned professors and wonderful environment.

Atiba Feranmi, class of 2019

These four years have been unforgettable for me. I have met new people, made friends, and seen a new and interesting culture, different traditions, a beautiful country, and a top college. I have been treated without discrimination. I would recommend students to apply for UPT, to come and discover Romania. Romania is "underrated" and is really worth visiting.

There were loads of factors why I chose UPT but the main reason has always been the same till today as its cheap to study while the university provides with the quality of education, services provided for the international students and the high career placement rate specially in Timisoara.

I want to say to new students who are still searching for a university, you will find in UPT more than a university, you will find a new huge family. You will find a very calm place in the library to study. You will live in Timisoara, one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
