The Department of Computer Science was founded in September 2011, according to the Law of Education no. 1/2011, taking over the task on the chair within the Faculty of Computer Science. Computer Science specialization since 2002 and was accredited by the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education in 2008 (H.G. 635/11.06.2008), thus being included in the national system of higher education.
