PROFILE & EXPERTISE
The University of Zagreb (“UniZG”) is a comprehensive public Central European university, UniZG offers education programmes in all scientific fields and a broad spectrum of courses at all study levels. UniZG excels not only in teaching, but also in research, contributing with over 50 percent to the annual research output of Croatia.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) is the largest technical faculty and leading educational and R&D institution in the fields of electrical engineering, information and communication technology and computing in the Republic of Croatia. The Faculty is organised in 12 departments which represent the focal points of education, research and development in various fields.
The Faculty is currently involved in 6 Erasmus+ projects. It provides teaching excellence in engineering sciences educating future engineers for different industries, namely: power system, communication, ICT sector, electronics and many others. Educational and research expertise related to staff employed at Department of Energy and Power Systems is a strong reference to this project. Those that should be mentioned are power systems expertise, ranging from power plants to smart grid concepts and demand response, electricity markets and energy economics. Special focus is directed towards renewable energy sources.
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FSB) is the oldest and the largest faculty in the field of mechanical engineering in Croatia. The development of the Faculty is based on the developments in the fields of design, materials, energy engineering, production and organization. The Faculty is one of the leading engineering faculties both of UniZG and in Croatia. The researchers of the Faculty undertake comprehensive research in national and international research projects and projects carried out in collaboration with industry. Students studying mechanical engineering are trained and prepared for a range of careers in the fields of design, construction, operation and maintenance of plants, machines, tools, devices and equipment, as well as design and management of thermal, energy conversion and production processes. They also acquire specialized knowledge of materials, automation, robotics, quality assurance, measurement, and production and work organization development.
The Faculty provides teaching excellence in engineering sciences educating future engineers for different industries. Graduate students may pursue a professional or scientific career in many areas, such as design and production, process management, exploitation and maintenance of production systems and design and operation of manufacturing systems across industries. Educational and research expertise related to staff employed at Department of Energy, Power and Environmental Engineering is strong reference to this project. Those that should be mentioned are turbine design and construction, ORC theory, thermodynamics, district heating systems and renewable energy sources, with focus on photovoltaics and geothermal sources.
