Background: I graduated Mathematics, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, Iassy in 1969, and Control Engineering, University "Politechnica" of Bucharest in 1973.

 I took the Ph.D. degree in Control Engineering at the University "Politechnica" - Bucharest with a thesis on Contributions to the Digraph Approach of Large-Scale Linear Systems Theory (in Romanian) in 1984.
