The GRASP Project (Student Internship at the Faculty of Civil Engineering) is financed by the European Social Fund under the “Efficient Human Resources” OP. During a three-year period (March 2020 to March 2023), the project will be assisting students in gaining practical knowledge through Student Internship. The beneficiaries of the project are the students, employers, as well as the teaching, and non-teaching staff of the Faculty. Through an array of workshops, the beneficiaries will be able to further develop their professional, communication, soft, and digital skills.

The main goals of the project are as follows:
  • to elevate the study programme by developing a student internship model,
  • to provide students with practical knowledge,
  • to facilitate students’ transition to the labour market,
  • to help teaching and non-teaching staff build up and develop their mentoring and training skills.
Furthermore, the following annual events assist in disseminating results and sharing experience gained by participants:
  • GRAD-ify Job Fair – an event following the traditional Career Day, which serves to provide networking opportunities between students and employers,
  • iGRA Competition – a student competition in developing practical projects, in cooperation with civil society.
The education of students, teachers and mentors is carried out via the following activities:
  • workplace safety training,
  • soft skills workshops,
  • contemporary digital skills workshops,
  • dissemination of experience at expert and scientific conferences,
  • implementation of student internships into the student programme and curriculum,
  • training and mentoring workshops.
All project activities are coordinated by the Career Centre via the central platform: https://www.grad.unizg.hr/ck .

Welcome to Faculty of Civil Engineering University of Zagreb.

Civil engineering studies were initiated with the establishment of the Technical College in Zagreb on 1st October l9l9. The Civil Engineering Division was situated on the first floor of the converted school building at 6, Roosevelt Square. In l926 the Technical College integrated into the University of Zagreb as the Technical Faculty. In l940 the Faculty moved into a new building at 26, Fra Andrije Kačića-Miošića Street, where civil engineering courses are still being held. In l956 the Technical Faculty branched into several faculties, among which was the Faculty of Architecture-Civil Engineering-Surveying, which in l962 became three separate faculties, and thus the independent Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Zagreb, was established.

In l977 the Faculty of Civil Engineering merged with the Civil Engineering Institute of Croatia. In the same year the two existing colleges of civil engineering joined the Faculty and continued to provide civil engineering courses, thus offering their undergraduates adequate vocational qualifications after 5 semesters. On 1st July l99l the Faculty of Civil Engineering once again became an independent institution within the University of Zagreb.

In l948 new courses were introduced such as structures, transportation engineering and hydraulic engineering, and in l970 an organisational-technological course. Since 1977 a construction management course has been available, providing the opportunity for students with completed high school vocational qualifications (after 5 semesters) to continue their education at university level. However, in 1988 this was gradually phased out.

The first civil engineering undergraduates took their degrees in l923, since when almost 8 000 have graduated.

Nearly 700 candidates have completed postgraduate studies in civil engineering, which have been held continuously since l963. The first dissertation was defended as early as 1922, since when more than 200 candidates have acquired their doctoral degrees (Ph.D.).
