Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy - University of Split

Introduction

Short History and the Faculty today:

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.

There are currently 1273 students enrolled in the Faculty. Until the present day the Faculty has produced 962 Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering, 27 Bachelors of Science in Architecture, 473 Civil Engineers, 189 Bachelors of Civil Engineering, 94 Bachelors of Architecture, 129 professional Bachelors of Civil Engineering, 37 Masters of Civil Engineering, and 2 Masters of Architecture. 44 candidates have acquired a Master of Science degree and 19 candidates have acquired a Doctor of Science degree.

Courses are delivered by 54 lecturers: 42 doctors of science, 6 masters of science, 14 assistants and 30 external associates. 26 junior research assistants have also been involved into the teaching process, three of which have a Ph.D. degree and 4 a M.Sc. degree.

Four employees are academy members.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture performs university study of Civil Engineering, university study of Architecture, university study of Geodesy and Geo-informatics, and professional study of Civil Engineering.

Since the academic year 1992/1993 postgraduate (doctorate) university studies have been performed as well.

Master in Architecture and Urban Planning in Mediterranean Environment

Campus Full time October 2017 Croatia Split

The programme is aimed at enabling the students to competently solve complex architectural tasks in an exceptionally demanding Mediterranean environment. [+]

Master in Architecture and Urban Planning in Mediterranean Environment As of the academic year 2013/2014 the University of Split will be providing a new graduate course of study of architecture in the English language, granting the students the degree of Master of science in Architecture and Urban Planning in Mediterranean Environment. The university study of architecture at the University of Split has existed since 2003, in the meantime winning international recognition, establishing an extensive collaboration with a number of universities in Europe (Zürich, Winterthur, Aachen, Madrid, etc) and Japan (Tokyo). It has become a distinguished study programme of architecture due to the excellent skills in individual disciplines, such as architectural design, urban planning and heritage preservation, as well as to the successful endeavour of combining them into multidisciplinary competences. The historical core of Split, dominated by the renowned Diocletian's Palace, has been as an unique historical site in its entirety included in the cultural heritage under the protection of UNESCO. Objectives The programme is aimed at enabling the students to competently solve complex architectural tasks in an exceptionally demanding Mediterranean environment. Design and planning tasks motivate the students to face the problems of architectural practice in the sensitive natural coastal environment, as well as the inherited historical context and the authority of the spatial criteria and requirements. It also encourages the students to take a critical attitude and to develop specific designing skills in order to successfully rise up to developmental challenges. Program Description Theoretical and multidisciplinary supports are ensured by a series of modules in which diverse factors participate in this creative process. This master's degree is worth 120 ECTS credits (870 hours) and takes 2 years of studying, Monday through Friday. During this time, it is strongly recommended a full-time dedication in order to develop and complete practical work. Participants will develop their design skills through an intensive series of workshops and complete their theoretical knowledge in speciality seminars. At the end of the master the students must present a degree's final work (Master's Thesis). The program is eminently practical and structured in Workshops and Specialities, plus a final Master's Thesis. All workshops and specialities are mandatory in order to receive the Diploma. The study is characterized with work in small groups, a motivating and competitive atmosphere, individualized approach, and an intensive collaboration with mentors. The programme also includes, as its integral component, field trips to the locations situated along the Croatian coast (Dubrovnik, Zadar, Šibenik, and the nearby islands). Admissions Architects from all nations willing to increase their knowledge and research field in architectural design and urban planning in mediterranean environment, and are able to demonstrate good skills developing projects in the time given, are invited to enroll our selection process. The minimum number of applicants is 15 (enrolment quota). Conditions The master program addresses candidates holding at least Bachelor's Degree (first cycle, 6th EQF level, minimum 180 ECTS credits or equivalent) in architecture and urban planning. Prospective students should have sufficient knowledge of English (knowledge level B1 of the Common European Framework CEF). Admission is subject to an assessment of candidates’ achievements and educational background. Tuition fee For EU/EEA Students regular fees are equal to €4000 per year. For Non-EU Students regular fees are equal to €5000 per year. (FGAG will not reimburse the partial or complete payment of the fee if the admitted participant gives up his/her place in the program.)
