Faculty profile

The tradition of higher education in the field of Civil Engineering in Split began in 1971 with the founding of the Department of Civil Engineering as part of the University of Zagreb. The institution started to exist autonomously in 1977 as the Faculty of Civil Engineering Science of the University of Split. Since July 1991 the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Split has been functioning as an independent higher education and scientific research organization. After the establishment of the Architectural Study in September 2003 the present-day Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture was founded.

The Faculty has had its own building since the day it was founded. It covers an area of 8400 m2 which is used for halls, lecture halls, student study rooms, offices, laboratories, a library, and a conference room. Courses and scientific research are carried out in 21 departments and 5 centers.

The University of Split was officially established on 15 June 1974 when the units having already had an effect in their professional, scientific and teaching areas entered its structure.
