The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FAMENA) has an almost century-old tradition – it is the successor to the Royal Technical College founded in 1919. Since then FAMENA has been one of the Croatian leading institutions in education, science and expertise in the fields of mechanical engineering and naval architecture, and for the last two decades in the field of aeronautical engineering too. Generations of engineers have been taught effectively by the Faculty’s teaching staff, who are also responsible for carrying out lifelong learning programmes for experts who are in the forefront of the development of economy and can generate ideas for further development. The staff, who collaborate with numerous academic institutions in Croatia and abroad and with the industry, have undoubtedly contributed to a high standing the Faculty has in the international academic community and in the industry.
