HISTORY AND FACTS

On 12 November 1945 the first out-of-capital higher education institution was founded in Ruse. Its three departments were specialized in Engineering for the purposes of the agricultural sector. On 13 June 1966, as a result of its intensive growth, the Minister of Education issued an Order No. 2583 to set up a Higher Institute of Mechanical Engineering, Mechanization and Electrification of Agriculture. On 9 April 1981, due to the widened scope of its engineering provision, including the sectors of transport, electronics and computing, it was transformed into 'Angel Kanchev' Technical University by a Decree No. 584 of the Council of Ministers. On 1 August 1995 a Decision of the National Assembly was made to establish "Angel Kanchev" University of Ruse, thus recognizing its academic expertise not only in the engineering fields, but also in natural sciences, education, law, public health and healthcare, business and management, which were introduced as a response to  the needs of the regional businesses and the community.
