## 5. Choice of professors and courses

SNSB has no tenured professors, and the courses change yearly. The
choice of the professors and of courses held each year at the
Mathematics Department follows strictly the art. 47 of the University
Chart: a call for courses is launched, a complete list of proposals is
made and the Scientific Council decide by vote which courses from this
list are accepted. We append as example the vote for the university

### 7.1. Some remarkable results of the students of the Informatics
Department

Concerning the general connection of SNSB students with the research
activity, we mention:

-each SNSB student is personally followed by a tutor, a researcher or
professor who has the principal task to guide him toward research

-the activity of SNSB is held in the location of the Institute of
Mathematics of the Romanian Academy; as such, the students participate
to the scientific seminaries of the
institute

-many students are included in the research teams of the institute

-usually the master students receive temporary position at the institute

-SNSB paid all the requests for supporting the participation of its
students to internal and external summer schools; there is not a
complete situation, but for instance in
