Postgraduate study in Civil Engineering offers original research and work in the innovative environment. The students are awarded degree on the basis of a dissertation and an oral examination of the dissertation.
The study has two parts: a preparatory year with thought courses (up to 60 ECTS) and minimum three years of the original research (equivalent to 180 ECTS). In collaboration with supervisors, students select courses which are prerequisites for the successful research.
The dissertation can be composed as a monograph or in an article-compilation format. The students are expected to submit dissertation by the end of the third or, in the case of part-time study, sixth year from the date the research has officially started.
During the study there are two key milestones:
- assessment of the research topic;
- assessment of the submitted dissertation.
The details about the study may be found here. Invitation to Admission will be published at the same web page.
The applicants are expected to be awarded master degrees (7th EQF level, QF-EHEA 2nd cycle, 300 ECTS) or equivalent. The average grade should be “very good” (above 3.5) according to Croatian grading system. Grades from other grading systems will be transferred fairly and thoughtfully. Exceptionally, an applicant having average grade below 3.5, may be considered for admission if he/she provides recommendations from two senior scientists working in the field of the applicant’s research preferences.
Applicants who are awarded degrees at 8.1 level according to CROQF (8th EQF level, less than 180 ECTS) will undergo a recognition procedure. The Committee for Postgraduate study will decide about the courses to be enrolled in.
Please use this form to submit your application to study.
The form should be sent to: Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy, Matice hrvatske 15, 21000 Split, Croatia with note “Application for Postgraduate University (Doctoral) Study of Civil Engineering'' to Ivana Blagaić (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).

The number of accepted applications depends on the actual research needs and supervising capacity. If the number exceeds the Faculty’s capacity a classification procedure is performed and applicants are selected according to the results achieved during bachelor and master degrees or from admission tests. Applicants who are awarded degrees at 8.1 level according to CROQF (8th EQF level, less than 180 ECTS) do not undergo selection procedure. The interview with an applicant is a mandatory step of the admission procedure. Names of the selected applicant are posted on the Faculty’s website.
The applicants may appeal to the selection procedure to the Committee for Postgraduate study within 48 hours after the initial selection is posted. The Committee reviews the appeals and submits the draft decision to the Dean. The Dean makes the decision within 24 hours after receiving the draft decision from the Committee. The applicants may have insight into documents from the selection procedure and get an explanation on decisions. As a result of the appeals, the admission decision may be changed and the new list with names of selected applicants is posted on the Faculty’s website.
The applicants may also appeal to the final decision on enrolment within 15 days from receiving the formal decision. The final decision is made by the Faculty Council. The applicants may also initiate an administrative dispute at the relevant court, within 30 days after the decision has been made by the Faculty Council. Applicants are advised to contact general Faculty's secretary Saša Delić, (e-mail: email@example.com) for guidance and further details about the appealing procedure.
Applicants with disabilities
FGAG welcomes applicants with disabilities and will make adequate adjustments to enable students to participate fully in both research and lectures. The disability will be handled confidentially and thoughtfully.
The applications from students with disabilities are treated in the same way as those from other applicants, meaning that they will be assessed according to the selection criteria relevant to the study. Information about the facilities and support offered to students can be found at the Office for students with disabilities http://www.unist.hr/studiranje-u-splitu/ured-za-studente-s-posebnim-potrebama and at Counceling Center of University of Split http://www.unist.hr/studiranje-u-splitu/centar-za-savjetovanje.
For visitors with special access requirements, please contact us for details and further queries: Commissioner for students with disabilities is Assist. Prof. Neno Torić, Ph.D. (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
