About University of Zilina

University of Žilina (UNIZA) with its over sixty-five years of history belongs to one of the leading educational and scientific institutions in Slovakia. With its rich tradition it occupies a significant place among Slovak universities. The current university is no longer focused only on transport and communications. It is a broadly-conceived university located in a unique university campus at Veľký Diel. It has seven faculties (Faculty of Operation and Economics of Transport and Communications, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Security Engineering, Faculty of Management Science and Informatics and Faculty of Humanities).

At present there are about 8 000 students being educated at seven faculties in 129 accredited study programmes in all forms and degrees of university studies at the University. In its successful existence it has become the alma mater for almost 80 000 graduates, highly skilled professionals specialising mostly in transport and technical fields as well as management, marketing or humanities. The profile consists of: transport (road, railway, water, air), transport and postal services, traffic routes, transport and civil engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications, informatics, information and communication technologies, management and marketing, mechanical engineering, materials and technologies, robotics, machinery design, energies, civil engineering, crisis and security management, civil security, fire protection, forensic engineering, applied mathematics, teaching of academic subjects, library and information science, high mountain biology.

In the field of science and research the UNIZA is involved in the solution of nearly 200 national and 65 international scientific projects and organises about 60 scientific and professional events annually. The results of science and research activities of the University have a major influence not only on educational activities but also on the development of international cooperation or application in practice. Achieving the competitiveness objective of the university was accomplished by a gradual implementation of the state-of-the-art equipment of the university and its laboratories through several projects.

Cooperation with foreign universities and institutions is crucial for our university. UNIZA has signed bilateral agreements with more than 50 countries worldwide, not only within Europe, but also in America (USA, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Cuba), Asia (Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan) and Africa (South Africa). In the field of university bilateral cooperation, the university moves forward in developing with the universities, higher education institutions and other institutions concerning the scientific and educational activities. In the history of the ERASMUS programme, the University of Žilina belongs to the most active and successful Slovak universities in terms of student mobilities. UNIZA is a member of international organizations (Magna Charta Universitatum, EUA, IGIP, ECTRI, FEHRL) and cooperates with them through its representatives.

The University of Žilina has a great ambition to continue in its dynamic growth, to provide high quality education, to educate well-prepared and demanded graduates, to develop international cooperation both in science and education, but its great effort is mainly to provide the space and opportunities for the young generation to learn new, to broaden horizons, to learn how to cooperate, communicate and respect each other.
