University of Split

The University of Split was officially established on 15 June 1974 when the units having already had an effect in their professional, scientific and teaching areas entered its structure. As a predominant scientific and teaching institution in the region the University of Split has expanded during the course of the past 30 years to include nine Faculties, one Academy of Arts, two University colleges and two University Departments as well as several institutes and scientific units.

On 29 January 2003 the University of Zadar was founded, incorporating the Faculty of Philosophy in Zadar, College for Teacher Training in Zadar, and Student's Centre in Zadar, previously belonging to the University of Split. The focus of the research work carried out by the University is on scientific areas with reference to disciplines characterized by natural, cultural, historical, social, economic and other features of the region as a part of the Croatian Adriatic and the Mediterranean region as a whole.

This involves the research and protection of art and construction heritage, philology, field crops, oceanography and fishing, Adriatic botany and zoology, island and coastal economy, Adriatic tourism, maritime law, nautical science, naval architecture and a range of other specific disciplines of technical sciences such as chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical and mechanical engineering, all of which distinguish the University of Split, not only in Croatia but also beyond its borders.
