History[edit]

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. As a predominant scientific and teaching public institution in the region the University of Split has expanded during the course of the past 30 years to include eleven Faculties, one Academy of Arts and four University Departments.There are about 25,000 students enrolled in the University’s undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate programs. Currently a new Campus is being built, which was supposed to be finished in 2014 but the economy crisis slowed it down so delays are to be expected. It will house all of the faculties, a large student center with a sports hall, sporting grounds and a University Library. There are new additions to the graduate programs like pharmacy, forensics, geodesy with new programs being added every year. The focus of the research work carried out by the University is on scientific areas with reference to disciplines characterized by natural, bio-medical, cultural, historical, social, economic and other features of the region as a part of the Croatian Adriatic and the Mediterranean region as a whole.[1] The School of Medicine in Split started a Medicine program in English in the school year 2011/12. The program's curriculum is governed by the Bologna Process.[2]

Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Split[edit]

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (Croatian: Fakultet elektrotehnike, strojarstva i brodogradnje, abbr: FESB) is a faculty of the University of Split. The fundamental activities of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split (FESB) are higher education teaching, research, developmental and professional work in the fields of Technical Sciences – in the scientific areas of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture, Computing and Fundamental Technical Sciences, and in the field of Natural Sciences, particularly in the subject areas of Mathematics and Physics. FESB is one of the largest constituents of the University of Split and largest technical faculty outside of Zagreb, capital of Republic of Croatia.

The faculty was established in 1960 as a fully autonomous and independent organization within the University of Zagreb. In 1971 the Faculty was renamed as the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split (FESB). Since 1974 the Faculty has been a constituent part of the University of Split. The Faculty, as one of the founders of the University, significantly contributed to its establishment.[citation needed] The four-year Mechanical Engineering programme of study with its own curriculum was finally completed in 1976.

The first phase in the construction of the new Faculty building was completed in 1980 at the university campus and the second phase of the large project was completed in 2007. The Faculty now has at its disposal almost 30,000 m2 of space with 19 classrooms, 11 computer laboratories and 95 research and teaching laboratories.

The Faculty has an internal division of organizational units for teaching and scientific research, administrative and technical work. The Department as an academic organizational unit participates in organizing and carrying out teaching, scientific and professional work. Faculty's Departments are:

  • Department of Power Engineering,
  • Department of Electronics,
  • Department of Mathematics and Physics,
  • Department of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture,
  • Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology,
  • Department of General Courses.

Researchers from FESB collaborated or were leaders of various either international or bilateral projects such as the Croatian-Slovenian, Croatian-French, FP6 Marie Curie, FP7 as well as: COST, ALIS STATES, CEEPUS, COGITO; CMS and ALICE[3] at CERN,[4] Code development for integrated modelling within EuroFusion Consortium,[5] EGEE II, MAGIC and several TEMPUS projects.[6]

Medical Studies in English[edit]

A Medicine program in English language started in the school year 2011/12.[7] Each year 50 students from the whole world are being enrolled. The Curriculum is governed by the Bologna Process. In addition students have the possibility to write the U.S. (USMLE) and Canadian (MCC) medical licensing exams.
