Undergraduate professional study: Polytechnics

The undergraduate professional study of Polytechnics is aligned with the needs of the Croatian manufacturing industry and as such ensures the acquisition of classical basic knowledge and skills of engineers, as well as modern planning, management and optimization skills. The content of the study is focused on the fields of engineering, computer science, management and economics.
The program is based on similar study programs recognized in the European Union and the USA.

The modern approach to the manufacturing industry is a complex system of design, organization and management. The combination of different knowledge and skills of engineers gained through the completion of this program facilitates the detection of errors in all production processes, therefore, professional bachelors in the field of polytechnics participate in all stages of design, management and optimization of processes, technological cycles, systems and plants.

Professional bachelors in the field of polytechnics are not narrowly specialized, but possess the breadth of knowledge required to view a manufacturing or a service business system as a complex entity or process.


Advantages of the study program:

  • individualized work in small groups enables students to easily acquire and apply knowledge through concrete examples from practice
  • cooperation with the Research Centre for Metal Industry in Istrian County - METRIS enables the application of acquired knowledge and skills on state-of-the-art analytical equipment in modernly equipped chemical, mechanical, and biotechnical laboratories
  • a modern approach to education
