West Timisoara University – Faculty of Fine Art and Design
The Faculty of Fine Art and Design is the biggest faculty of this type in the western part of
Romania. The study programs offered by us are covering three main areas: traditional arts,
applied arts, and the theoretical domain. Through the 11 directions of study on the bachelor
level, 10 directions on master level and the doctoral studies, we successfully provide a wide
range of options in the visual arts.
We organize classes as follows: painting, graphic arts,
sculpture, graphic design, interior design, product design, decorative arts, fashion, history and
theory of arts, photo & video and restauration.
We develop a wide range of teaching, research and artistic activities supported by teachers,
students and a strong alumnus community. Also our four research centers provide specific
expertise and consultancy.
By all these facts, the Faculty of Arts and Design is a strong cultural driving force for our city
and region. We are actively building our future society and we are looking forward for the year
2023 when Timisoara will be European Capital of Culture.
