HISTORY:

The ANNALS of Faculty Engineering Hunedoara – International Journal of Engineering (ISSN 1584 – 2665, for printed version, ISSN 1584 – 2673, for electronic format) has been published since 2003, in English, replacing the journal named ANALELE Facultăţii de Inginerie din Hunedoara (ISSN 1454 – 6531) that appeared regularly since 1999, in Romanian.

At the beginning, in ANALELE Facultăţii de Inginerie din Hunedoara, Romanian university teaching staff published alongside with researchers, focusing on specific themes related to engineering, science, ecology and economical science, as well as interdisciplinary approaches. This collaboration grants the spreading of information relevant to the academic community and the economic medium. The development of the international dimension of higher education and scientific research, have lead to the strengthening of direct relations with researchers from the neighboring countries and to the extension of the scientific collaborations in elsewhere in the World. Within this context, the achievement and functioning of an interactive partnership, corresponding to the exigencies of the modernization process and connection to the European space required a re-evaluation of the contents and layout of our JOURNAL, both by adopting stricter criteria maintaining the contents of the scientific materials we publish and by changing its title, which was made in order to insure the universal accessibility of the ANNALS of Faculty Engineering Hunedoara – International Journal of Engineering.

Both the Faculty of Engineering of Hunedoara, in particular, and the University Politehnica  Timisoara, in general, benefit from competent personnel, open to the new and to the European integration. With this aim, our Journal is helping them as a debate forum, meant to promote ideas, programs and initiatives, finalized or in course of research, as well as a possibility of turning into account their creative and innovative potential.

The scientific connections and the collaborations of the teaching staff of the Faculty of Engineering of Hunedoara with the members of some national associations and professional societies, as well as with teaching staff of Romanian Universities facilitate the scientific collaboration with other institutions, research centers and academic societies in specific fields. These collaborations can act as means of making public the results of scientific research, development and technological transfer.

At the same time, the professional and personal relationships with outstanding foreign institutions allow us to cooperate with the teaching staff and researchers from these centers and to integrate our Faculty within the European informational and scientific circuits. In this sense, there is a wide range of themes hosted by ANNALS of Faculty Engineering Hunedoara – International Journal of Engineering, according to the preoccupations of our collaborators in various fields of research.
