About FER & FESB

FER – University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in Zagreb is one of the most important scientific institutions in Croatia, and it began its tradition in 1956 by enrolling the first generation of students at the independent Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

FER traditionally cooperates with the economy, which results in numerous projects, expertise, and other professional work. From 1995 until today, more than 40 cooperation agreements have been signed with various economic entities. Also, according to the European Commission, FER is at the top of Croatia in attracting EU projects. By the end of 2021, over 260 scientific research projects had been implemented, thus FER continued to strengthen its status as a desirable partner in applied research and development of innovations in the Republic of Croatia. For the purposes of hiring researchers and procuring research equipment, FER withdraws money from the European Union. The total value of projects in which FER participated in 2021 amounted to almost 3 billion kunas, and the part that belonged to the faculty was intended for the employment of researchers and the purchase of equipment. According to numerous analyzes, FER ranks first among domestic research institutions, and the quality is recognized beyond the country’s borders.

This faculty is a leading national and regional higher education and research institution with excellent professors and students, firmly connected with the economy, excellently organized, and internationally recognizable, all with almost 600 employees. The Faculty consists of 12 institutes and several services and is managed by the Dean and the Faculty Council, which has almost 250 members – employees from the ranks of teachers and associates, and students. Each institute at FER is the core of teaching, research, and scientific work in a particular field or branch. For years, this faculty has been a leader in building a strong ecosystem for launching the Croatian economy based on knowledge and innovation.

FER continuously works on increasing research, innovation, and development capacities and the quality of its research and innovation work. It also encourages research aimed at pushing scientific boundaries, in line with the needs of the economy, all in cooperation with Croatian and European institutions.
