Politehnica University of Bucharest




I, Ionelia Voiculescu, am full professor (from 2005) at University Politehnica of Bucharest – the biggest Technical University in Romania, from 1985. I am Welding Engineer since 1983 and PhD in Industrial Engineering from 1998 (thesis title: Contributions regarding the hydrogen diffusion in steels for welded structures).

The main scientific achievements during researches activity:

  • 7 international projects (as memberin the scientific team);
  • 33 national research projects (as member in the scientific team);
  • 4 international projects and 14 national research projects as Project Director;

Also, I was member in the team in research projects (2) in the frame of Tempus JEP European Program and participant (1) in Socrates Project.

The main Scientific and Research Activity performed in the period 1988-2020 was focused on following topics:

  • Development of the the New Filler Materials for Welding and Hardfacing
  • Development of the Laser Welding and Cladding Processes
  • Studies regarding Similar or Dissimilar Brazing Joints
  • Studies on the Weldability and Characterization of Materials.
