School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC)

ENAC joins forces of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Environmental Sciences and Engineering to help ensure a sustainable living environment for humanity through a sound and respectful integration of human activities into the biosphere.

The faculty grasps major challenges such as climate change, global digitalization, and rapid urbanization in its entirety whilst considering economic, technical, and social demands.

Value Proposition

ENAC contributes substantially to a sustainable transition of the built and natural environment.

Our mission and goals

ENAC Sustainability challenges

ENAC aims to play a leading role in the transition to a sustainable living environment by its inter- and transdisciplinary approach and its unique collaboration of architecture, civil and environmental engineering. ENAC focuses on 3 strategic challenges:

  1. Developing knowledge and innovations to anticipate, mitigate and adapt to climate change.
  2. Reap the benefits of digitalization to serve a sustainable development of cities and infrastructures.
  3. Adopt new approaches to urbanization and innovate to contribute to sustainable territories.

Earthquakes in Croatia in 2019 – Building damage and post-earthquake activities


With: Josip Atalić is Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Mechanics of Faculty of Civil Engineering University of Zagreb. His areas of research are earthquake engineering, historical structures, numerical modelling, seismic risk etc. Josip participated in several research projects, published over 50 scientific papers, he is a peer reviewer for national and international journals and participated in over 150 (led over 50) professional work projects (structural designs). He is the leader of the team of experts for National Risk Assessment in Republic of Croatia – Seismic Risk, risk management capability assessment and national strategy in cooperation with the National Protection and Rescue Directorate (NPRD) and Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning of Republic of Croatia (2014-2021). He participates in Study on Seismic Risk Mitigation in the City of Zagreb in collaboration with the Zagreb City Office of Emergency Management from 2013-2021 (leader in 2016, 2017 and 2020). Josip is a part of Croatian Civil Protection MUSAR team, and he is a member of Thematic Working Group for the Security in National Development Strategy by 2030. After the earthquakes in Croatia in 2020, Josip led the organization of damage assessments and reconstruction cost assessment (for Government and World Bank), he is author of two books/guidelines for reconstruction process and participated in numerous strategic activities on the state level.    Mario Uroš studied at the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Zagreb, where he graduated in 2006 in the field of structural engineering. Now, he works at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Zagreb as an Associate Professor at the Department of Engineering Mechanics, Chair for Statics, Dynamics and Stability of Structures. He is actively involved in teaching of the university undergraduate and graduate programs at the in courses Mechanics II and Theory of Stability. In his scientific work he works in the wider field of numerical modeling, dynamics and stability of structures and earthquake engineering. He participates in many scientific projects in his field of research as a participant or leader. He is a member of the organizing and scientific committee of several scientific and professional international conferences and author of many relevant scientific and professional papers. He was involved in the implementation of European projects MATILDA for damage assessment and emergency measures after earthquakes and Interreg READINESS project in which he performs numerical calculations for buildings of strategic interest in the City of Dubrovnik and Split-Dalmatia County in case of a possible earthquake, in cooperation with the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Faculty of Science. He has been one of the coordinators of rapid damage assessments of buildings by civil engineers after the earthquakes in Zagreb in March 2020 and Petrinja in December 2020 and a series of necessary community relief activities. He has won several awards, including the Medal of the City of Zagreb and the award of the Croatian Chamber of Civil Engineers “Kolos” in 2020 for his contribution to post-earthquake activities.
