Organizer's history
Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology was founded in 1919 as the first Department of Chemical engineering in Croatia at Technical School, with aim to do scientific research and educate young scientists and engineers in the field of chemistry and chemical engineering. A great number of distinguished scientists have worked at the Faculty: Vladimir Prelog (1975 Nobel Prize winner) was the professor of organic chemistry from 1934 to 1941; Ivan Marek, first professor of organic chemistry (1920-1933), invented the world-famous "Marek's Furnace" for elemental organic analysis; Franjo Hanaman, the inventor of tungsten filament, was professor of inorganic chemical technology and metallurgy from 1922 to 1941; Ivan Plotnikov, W. Oswald's student, a world-famous scientist and author of dozen books in the field of photochemistry, was working as professor of physics and physical chemistry between 1920 and 1943. The chemical engineering education has followed historical paradigms; the Unit Operation Concept, due to Rikard Podhorsky, was accepted at the University of Zagreb at the same time as at the best European universities. Besides mentioned worldwide known scientists, a group of prominent scientists such as Vjera Marjanović, Karlo Weber, Matija Krajčinović and Miroslav Karšulin was also educated and worked at the Faculty. In year 1926 Technical School was renamed in the Technical Faculty of the University of Zagreb, that gave teachers and scientists opportunity for more intensive scientific work. After restructuring of Technical Faculty at 1956, the Chemical Technology Study became a part of the Faculty of Chemical, Food and Mining Technology, while at year 1957 became a part of newly formed Technological Faculty. And finally, in year 1991, after final severance of Technological Faculty, the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology became the independent unit of University of Zagreb.
The University of Zagreb (1669) is the oldest and biggest university in South-Eastern Europe. Ever since its foundation, the University has been continually growing and developing and now consist of 29 faculties, three art academies and the Centre for Croatian Studies. With its comprehensive programs and over 50,000 full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students the University is the strongest teaching institution in Croatia. It offers a wide range of academic degree courses leading to Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees in the following fields: Arts, Biomedicine, Biotechnology, Engineering, Humanities, Natural and Social Sciences. It is also a strongly research-oriented institution, contributing with over 50 percent to the total research output of the country.
