ABOUT UNIVERSITY OF ŽILINA

The history of the University of Žilina (UNIZA) began on 1 September 1953 when the University of Railway Transport was founded by separating from the Czech Technical University in Prague. It gradually became an important pillar of education in the fields of transport, which resulted in the change in the name to the University of Transport. It was moved to Žilina in 1960 where it underwent many transformations, and in 1980 it was renamed again to the University of Transport and Communications. Later in 1996, after broadening its fields of interest and other organizational changes, it was renamed the University of Žilina. At present there are about 8.000 students being educated at seven faculties (The Faculty of Operation and Economics of Transport and Communications, The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, The Faculty of Civil Engineering, The Faculty of Management science and Informatics S, The Faculty of Security Engineering and The Faculty of Humanities) in 231 accredited fields of study in all forms and degrees of university studies at the University. In its over 60 years of successful existence it has become the alma mater for more than 81.000 graduates, highly skilled professionals specializing mostly in transport and technical fields as well as in management, marketing or humanities. The quality and readiness of our graduates for the needs of practice is proved by long-term high interest in hiring them by employers that cooperate with the University in the recruitment process. In the field of science and research, our University participates in 200 national and 41 international scientific projects and organizes about 60 scientific and professional events annually. There were two new significant work places established within the Operational Programe Research and Development in 2013 - University Science Park and Research Centre. Results of science and research activities of the University have an important influence not only on the educational activities but also on the development of international cooperation or interconnection with practice. One of the proofs of successful transfer of science and research results into practice is the Award for Technology Transfer for the team of authors from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Žilina.

 

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Žilina offers a technical education and produces university-educated experts, who are able to solve complicated technical problems with reasoning in all views of social, ethical, economic, ecological, cultural and historical matters. The faculty was founded in 1953 as one of the primary faculties of the University of Rail Transport in Prague, the original name of today's University of Žilina. The originally named Faculty of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering divided into two separate faculties and was re-established in 1992 as the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME). The faculty consists of 10 departments, which in cooperation with the other parts of the faculty and University guarantees the pedagogic process and scientific and research activities.
