The year 2014 is the 345th year since establishment of the University of Zagreb, 95th year of study of electrical engineering and the 58th year of autonomous Faculty of Electrical Engineering. In 1994, the Faculty changed its name becoming the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) reflecting the fact that eminent professionals in electrical engineering but also in computing have been coming from this institution.
The primary mission of the Faculty is to prepare students to perform direct tasks on their workplaces. However, what might be even more important is to accept permanent education as a necessity in a profession that is undergoing dramatic changes. The present research and educational staff comprises more than 140 professors and 230 teaching and research assistants. The Faculty has developed respectable international cooperation with many institutions around the world.
