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 in the teaching process, three of which have a Ph.D. degree and 4 an 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.
