This faculty originated from the Section of Hydro-amelioration which was founded within the Faculty of Agricultural Mechanization in 1951 and which became a separate faculty in 1954.
In 1957 the faculty was closed and the students were transferred to the Institute of Ameliorative Engineering in Novocherkask, Russia. Ten years later a new Section of Hydro-amelioration was opened within the Faculty of Agricultural Mechanization and since 1969 it was separated again and retook the status of a faculty. During the years the faculty had different names: Hydro-amelioration and Land Cadastre (1993), Cadastre and Environmental Engineering (2000) and its present name – since July 2004.
Concomitantly with the start of the agrarian reform in our country, there was a lack of specialists in the fields of land improvements, land cadastre, rural development, rural environment engineering etc., fact which determined the establishment of new specialities within the faculty: Territorial Organization (1991), Cadastre (1995) and Patrimonial law (2002).
More than 3550 engineers hydro-ameliorators have graduated the faculty during the years, including 38 foreigners and more than 550 engineers of cadastre.
The faculty has at its disposal 3 classrooms equipped with modern computers connected to Internet, laboratories with special equipment for the following disciplines: automation of cadastral works geoinformational systems, photogrametry, teledetection and images decoding, geodesy et.
The faculty has 6 departments. The faculty’s teaching staff includes more than 50 specialists, among them 2 Professors, 14 associate professors, 9 senior lecturers, more than 30 lecturers and lecturer assistants, who ensure the instruction of more than 1,200 students at both forms of studies.
