About the Faculty The Faculty of Economics and Business in Rijeka was founded in mid-1961. With first lectures starting on 1st November 1961, the Faculty has been educating economic experts especially for enhancing the economic development of Croatian Littoral and Istrian region. In 2001, the Faculty moved to the new address of I. Filipovića 4, Rijeka. Since the academic year 2005/2006, the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Rijeka (EFRI) conducts university … [+] study programs in line with the Bologna Declaration for study programs of Economics and Business Economics. While enhancing the development of study programs, the Faculty has adopted an internationally recognizable model 3 + 2 + 3, so that after the completion of a three-year university undergraduate study program students obtain the title Bachelor's degree in (business) economics, which is followed by a two-year graduate study program, and after graduation, students are awarded a master's degree. Then, a completion of a three-year postgraduate doctoral studies leads to obtaining an academic title of a Ph.D. The great number of foreign universities, with which the Faculty has signed agreements on collaboration in different fields, the number of visiting professors involved within the teaching process and the number of Faculty’s teachers staying at foreign universities as well as the increasing number of incoming and outgoing students within the mobility programs show the current volume of the Faculty of Economics and Business’ involvement in the international higher education and research area. ACCREDITATIONS We live up to the highest quality standards, and our programs are accredited by various programs and our Institution takes part on different memberships. We are committed to the creation of new contents and transfer of knowledge to young people who are going to make great things in the field economics very soon. Therefore we believe that an English taught study program at both levels (undergraduate and graduate) must be much more affordable to all students. So consequently we adjusted our tuition fee accordingly. In this sense, we are convinced that we follow the right path considering the fact that our students make excellent results in different projects. Furthermore, our former students (members of our ALUMNI) keep leading positions in many companies and institutions. MISSION In the international business and scientific environment, and in cooperation with the community, by educating and developing entrepreneurially oriented and socially responsible leaders, managers and researchers, we contribute to the development of society and science. VISION Integration into the European area of higher education and European research area accompanied by overwhelming support for the development of the economy. Integration can be seen through competitiveness of the study programs, student exchange, academic and administrative personnel, joint international study and research projects. Lending support to the economy is achieved through drawing up useful educational programs for the economy, joint, mutually advantageous, research projects as well as the widespread inclusion of student capacity. The Faculty will be recognized as a much sought-after and reliable higher educational institute, a partner with the economy as well as with other national and international scientific and educational institutes and students. The Faculty shall be an institution which will continuously evolve and enhance its study programs, research and its staff.
The tradition of Higher Education in Rijeka dates back as far as 1627, whereas the first milestone of the systematic education of engineering personnel in this area is laid by the displacement of the Navy Academy from Trieste to Rijeka in 1854. In this way, a full-time four-year study with educational courses from the fields of iron ship and steam engine construction was commenced for the needs of the Austrian Navy of that period, and it continued until after World War I.… [+] Additionally, initial foundations of the Faculty of Engineering were laid on engineering achievements like torpedo manufacturing in 1866, the first world photography of rifle bullets at supersonic speed in 1886, the birth and the first scientific achievements of the worldly renowned seismologist and meteorologist Andrija Mohorovičić, as well as the development of some of the crucial elements in naval architecture, mechanical industry and power industry both in the city of Rijeka and broader region. The Faculty was established in the year of 1960, previously named Strojarski fakultet (Faculty of Mechanical Engineering). At the very early stages, only graduate engineers of Mechanical Engineering were educated, and since the Faculty started recruiting graduate engineers of Naval Architecture in 1969/70, it was then renamed into the Faculty of Mechanical-Naval Architecture. Under this name it pursued its activities until 1973, when it was renamed into the Technical Faculty. The initiation of the study for graduate Civil Engineering in 1971/72 resulted in the foundation of the independent Faculty of Civil Engineering in 1976. The Faculty encompasses 11 departments. The departments include 38 sections and 50 laboratories, and the Faculty also has a Computing Centre, a Library as well as an Accounting Division, Procurement Office, the General and Personnel Office, the Student Affairs Office and the Technical Service. Of the total number of 171 employees, 69 are in teaching-research, 9 in teaching and 25 in associate positions, 18 junior researchers, 3 members of staff work on projects funded by the Croatian Science Foundation, and 38 work in the administrative and professional services. 7 employees are outside of the system of the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, and 2 on professional training, but the Faculty engages a large number of external associates. The Faculty offers undergraduate and graduate university study programmes in mechanical engineering, naval architecture, electrical engineering and computer engineering as well as undergraduate vocational study programmes in mechanical engineering, naval architecture and electrical engineering. It also offers a three-year doctoral study in the area Engineering Sciences, in the fields of Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture, Electrical Engineering, Fundamental Engineering Sciences and Interdisciplinary Engineering Sciences. So far, the Faculty of Engineering in Rijeka has delivered 128 PhD and 95 Master of Science degrees. Of the former 2899 Graduate Engineer Diplomas 2335 were in Mechanical Engineering, 311 in Naval Architecture and 253 in Electrical Engineering; and of 1536 Engineer Diplomas 717 were in Mechanical Engineering, 108 in Naval Architecture and 711 in Electrical Engineering. The Bologna programme has produced 691 Master Engineers (282 Mechanical Engineering, 75 Naval Architecture, 303 Electrical Engineering and 31 Computer Engineering), 1061 University Bachelor Engineers (480 Mechanical Engineering, 82 Naval Architecture, 360 Electrical Engineering and 139 Computer Engineering) as well as 335 Vocational Bachelor Engineers (122 Mechanical Engineering, 32 Naval Architecture and 181 Electrical Engineering). At present more than 2000 students study at the Faculty.
