I am 62 years old, native Romanian engineer and translator from English to Romanian (cerificate RCCM, no. 373/2004), living in Romania at Cluj-Napoca.

My scientific title is European Master of Science in Energy Management and Mechanical Engineering, obtained in 1995, after 18 months of daily classes, by examines and projects, sustained exclusively in English, with foreign teachers and examiners from universities of U.K., Italy, Germany, Belgium, Greece. The External Examiners and Teaching Stuff were from International Center for Technical Research from London, Paris International Technological University UNESCO, from Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London (Dr.B.Nath), National Technical University of Athens (Proff.N.C.Markatos), Free University of Brussels (Dr.J.De Ruyck, Proff.P.Kool), Technical University of Munich (Proff.

The courses were held at Technical University, Cluj-Napoca, and “Transylvania” University, Brasov, Romania, with the support of the TEMPUS Program of The Commission of the European Community, under the management of the International Center for Technical Research of London.

In 1992 I graduated Art School of Cluj-Napoca, three years of courses in graphic art.
