About FESB

Historical development

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering was established in the town of Split by the decree of the Parliament of the Republic of Croatia in 1960. The center for part-time study of Mechanical Engineering was also established that year. Out of these two core institutions the Split Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FESB) emerged in 1971 as a part of the University of Split. From the old edifice, called the "Bishop’s Palace", in 1980 FESB moved to the new building, its present site. More than 3200 students have graduated at the Faculty so far, and 40 students have acquired their M. Sc. of Ph.D. degrees.

Organization and Studies

The Faculty comprises seven organizational units: Dean’s Office, General Courses Department, Department of Mathematics and Physics, Department of Power Engineering, Department of
Electronics, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, and the Department of Engineering Technology. Fesb offers the University undergraduate degree programs of Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, lasting for nine semesters: eight semesters of courses and one semester for writing the graduation thesis. There is also the University undergraduate degree program of Naval Architecture. The first two years of the program are offered at FESB, and after that the students continue their studies at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Zagreb, or at the Technical Faculty of the University of Rijeka. The FESB also offers graduate M. Sc. and Ph.D. degree programs in Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

FESB Activities

The FESB reputation has been contributed by numerous presentations of research results obtained by professors and students, both at home and abroad. These research results have been published in scientific and professional journals, or have been reported at international scientific and professional conferences. The Faculty often organizes home and international conferences, seminars and public lectures, and during the summer it organizes the physics school for secondary school students. These activities, as well as a successful cooperation with economic organizations, have contributed to the Faculty reputation. A number of FESB professors have become renowned in industry, both for their teaching and research work. We must also point out the contribution of graduate engineers, former students of this Faculty, who continued cooperating with the Faculty after getting a job in their particular firms, whether by solving the respective production problems, or by participating in the Faculty research work.
