Being an important component of a prestigious University, the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science is now a perfect blending of tradition and present, modernity and experience.
The field of Mathematics at Babes-Bolyai University achieved an excellent ranking in 2015 in the Best Global Universities ranking, conducted by US News & World Report. While in 2014 the field of Mathematics at Babes-Bolyai University was ranked on position 81, in the 2015 ranking of "The world's best Universities for Mathematics" Mathematics at UBB is positioned on the very prestigious place 63. This classification (the latest in Romania) is a recognition of the value of the School of Mathematics from Romania and in particular from Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, a value based on tradition, work and seriousness in a climate of honest competition.
On the other hand, Cluj-Napoca has become an important centre for Information Technology and Communications on the map of Europe due to the good training of the Computer Science graduates from our faculty. Many companies from the field of Computer Science, with both domestic and foreign capital, are based in Cluj-Napoca, the city constituting nowadays an important presence in the software and IT development, both at national and European level, a genuine "Silicon Valley" in the heart of Transylvania. Graduates of Computer Science at Babes-Bolyai University are highly valued by companies in the field, with a real "talent hunting" going on even since their student years.
Both Mathematics and Computer Science departments from Babes-Bolyai University have a solid material basis and appropriate human support: equipped laboratories, well-stocked libraries, modern academic and research programmes and attractive practical training programmes, lucrative national and international collaborations.
An important role in the competitive positioning of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science in the university and society is played by the Hungarian and German lines of study. The study programmes in Hungarian as well as the Computer Science specialisation in German (achieved with the support of three leading companies in the field of Computer Science (EBS-NTT DATA Romania, MHP Romania and Porsche AG Germany)) attract many candidates and enjoy a very good reputation among employers.
Last but not least there are entire generations of exceptional graduates in the field of Mathematics and Computer Science working throughout the country and around the world in schools or prestigious high schools, in IT firms and companies, in basic or applied research, in leading universities in Romania, Western Europe or America.
