October 16th / 12 am / VATROSLAV LISINSKI Concert Hall
The Day of the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Zagreb will be celebrated in this festive year on 16 October 2019 at the main Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall, in remembrance of the historical beginning of higher education in civil engineering dating back to October 1919 when it all started at the Structural Engineering Division of the Higher School of Engineering in Zagreb. Civil engineering has always been a significant and esteemed human activity and, in Croatia, it has had a long-standing, rich and highly diversified tradition. Our engineers, their engineering solutions, products, and methodologies are well known and recognised worldwide and, here, at the Faculty, we have been continuously developing close ties with business and industry through research & development projects oriented toward innovations and new technologies. As the oldest higher education institution in the field of civil engineering, we have not only the obligation, but also the great pleasure, of continuously attracting attention to this significant and valuable sector of economy, as our engineers have built, are building, and will be building, a wide variety of engineering structures in Croatia and also far beyond its borders.
