Education and career[edit]

Ioan Dzițac graduated from primary and general Repedea village school (1960–1968), Maramureș County, “Dragoș Vodă” High School in Sighetu Marmației (1968–1972) and then the Faculty of Mathematics, “Babeș-Bolyai” University (1972–1977).[1]

In 2002 obtained his PhD in computer science at the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, Babeș -Bolyai University with the thesis “Methods for parallel and distributed computing in solving operational equations” under the scientific supervision of prof. PhD Grigor Moldovan.[2]

Between 1977 and 1991, he taught mathematics in the pre-university education, obtaining the permanent teacher certification on all levels (1980), second grade teacher certification (1985) and first grade teacher certification (1990). In 1986 he received the title of “Distinguished Professor” given by Minister's Order no. 7610/08.06.1988.
