The ruler Alexandru Ioan Cuza visits Pitești on June 19, 1859, where a school for teachers in Romanian language already existed. In June 1866, by ministerial decree, under the reign of Carol I, the National College, which was later renamed I.C.Bratianu was founded.
And by the order of the same ruler, Carol I, in 1887 a preparatory pedagogical school for primary school teachers was founded in Bucharest. It operates in Câmpulung starting with 1896 and late, in parallels, in Pitesti, since 1919, by order of King Ferdinand. Under his regim, in 1992, in Gheorghe Doja street, 41, a building meant for the teaching school for boys was built. Later, the teaching school for girls moved for a while to Câmpulung. In this building, it is high school teaching that operates until September 1, 1962 when history marks the beginning of higher education in Pitești, by establishing the Pedagogical Institute with three faculties: of Mathemathics, Philology and Natural Sciences. The year 1971 comes with two new specialisations: Physical Education and Sports and Physics.
Shortly afterwards, in 1969 the Institute for Near-Engineers of Pitesti is established. It is subordinated to the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest with two specialisations: Automobiles and Cold Processing Technology. In 1974, the two institutes merge, with an autonomus status, having already 1324 students and 136 teachers. The Faculty of Pedagogical Education and the Faculty of tehnical Education are established within the Institute of Higher Education Pitești. In 1977 the first preparatory department of engineers, automotives is founded.
In 1984, a part of the technical education is taken over by the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest and there appear new specializations for engineers and near-engineers at evening classes. It is a turing period for the higher education in Pitesti, but overcome in 1990, when by a ministerial order, the Institute of Higher Education of Pitești, with an autonomous status is restabilished.
Since 1991, the Institute becomes the University of Pitești, which meets some extraordinary dynamics, the number of faculties and specialisations growing in a spectacular way. The areas of education developed, modern buildings with special facilities for the Faculties of the University are raised, as well as spaces for the necessary social services, such a new hostels for accommodation and canteen restaurants.
Thus, a large campus is founded in Târgul din Vale Street No.1, where over the abandoned ruins of a construction projected by Ceaușescu regime for a municipal canteen after a Korean model … Rector headquarters, as well as the Central Library, the Faculties of Mechanics and Technology, Electronics, Social-Human ans Sciences were built here.
New buildings were bought. They were rearranged and in these buildings it is the Faculties of Economic Sciences and Juridical Sciences that develop their activity.
On the old site of Pedagogical Institute, there are the Faculties of Theology, Physical Education and Sports and Letters. In the building from Doaga Street it is the Faculty of Educational Sciences and the Engineering Center, near the Faculty of Mechanics and Technology that develop their activities.
