In 1983, in Aachen (Germany), he obtained the title of doctor of engineering, by defending the thesis Hydrothermally treated concrete and its non-destructive test. In the country, he was site manager for the construction of the bridge over Argeş at Căteasca (total length 250 m) and implemented his innovative ideas at the Hotare bridge, also over Argeş (150 m). The accumulated experience allowed him to enrich his scientific and technical achievements in the design and construction of prestressed concrete bridges in Germany. At the same time, he carried out a fruitful teaching activity at the Institute of Constructions in Bucharest, continued activity in Germany, at the Institute of Tropical Technology. He was consulted for the realization of numerous works and, through the prestige he gained, he was elected the president of the Engineering Society Cologne. He also participated in numerous international congresses in his specialized field, being the author of over 120 reports/expertises, as well as high-value studies.

Academician Toma DORDEA
Member of Honor
January 1, 1921, Bungard [SB] – April 11, 2015, Timisoara
Titular member of the Romanian Academy, consulting university professor Dr. Eng., expert. The prodigious teaching activity of Professor Toma Dordea was supported by his high competence and passion for knowledge, by the care, love, but also the demand shown to the long series of students, or younger collaborators. Starting from 1965, when he was appointed PhD supervisor, he raised to a higher level the activity of training and training engineers in the “Electrical machines” specialty. During this period he designed, built and endowed the Electric Machines Laboratory in the new premises of the faculty so that the research activity could be carried out in the best conditions. As PhD supervisor, he guided more than 50 researchers, who today constitute an elite body of the School of Machines, Devices and Electric Drives, created by Professor Toma Dordea at the Polytechnic of Timisoara. He directed his scientific research activity almost entirely to the vast field of electric machines, with reference to the theory and equations of electric machines, as well as to the design, calculation and optimization of these machines.

Professor Dr. Eng. Şerban Valeca, a member of the Romanian Academy of Scientists, dedicated his whole life to education, science and knowledge, regardless of whether he worked as a university professor, senator or minister. A graduate of the Faculty of Energy of the University of Bucharest, he carried out his scientific activity at the Nuclear Research Institute in Pitesti, whose director he was for a long time, then being president of the Scientific Council. He coordinated the annual and perspective research-development plans of ICN and of the development program of Generation IV nuclear reactors of the LFR type in Romania through international cooperation. He was one of the most effective ministers of scientific research, being the one who introduced the criterion of scientific competition in funding research and established the National Research Programs.
For his prodigious activity he was rewarded with the National Order “Star of Romania” in the rank of Knight; Diploma of merit in the rank of “Officer with the Cross”, Brussels for special services brought to the cause of progress and the support of inventions; Honorary citizen of the city of Cernavodă, City of Mioveni, Vice-President of the Romanian Traditional Karate Association; Honorary President of the Romanian Traditional Karate Federation under the high Patronage of the Royal House; Member of associations: World Energy Council – Romanian National Council; Romanian Association “Nuclear Energy”; RHEUMATO; National Defense College Foundation; European President of the United World Karate Federation.
