The study of the language of naval architecture is an extremely complex endeavour and it is so for several reasons including both objective and subjective factors. The objective factors have to be accepted as such, because they are beyond the capability of individuals to change the course of historic events. The odds appear to have placed the town of Galați at the crossings of waters, in an area limited by the Danube, the Siret and the Prut. Taking into account the benefit of these geographical surroundings as well as the long tradition in ship works, the communist authorities of the 1940’s decided to found a polytechnic institute in this region of this country; this decision was paramount for the development of the Romanian shipbuilding industry. For more than half a century has the Faculty of Naval Architecture of the first Polytechnic Institute in Galati been unique in the Romanian higher education system. It was a centre of elite, with outstanding personalities in the academic world who best served the national and international interests in shipbuilding, this demanding field of expertise.
