The Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (UTC-N short for Romanian: Universitatea Tehnică din Cluj-Napoca) is a public university located in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. It was founded in 1948, based on the older Industrial College (1920). Technical University of Cluj-Napoca is classified by the Ministry of Education as an advanced research and education university.

In 1948, under the provisions of the August 1948 law for the reform of education, the Cluj Mechanics Institute was founded. The Institute had a faculty with two departments: Thermotechnics and Machines.
