Brief history of FCE

FCE is one of the oldest and most experienced Faculties in the Albanian Higher Education. It was established in 1951 as a Construction Branch in the framework of Higher Polytechnic Institute of Tirana and later as constituent part of Tirana University. In 1983, Faculty of Civil Engineering was established as an indipendant unit included in UT. Since the establishment of the Polytechnic Institute and up to the present, FCI as a main unit of PUoT, has contrubuted to a successful history for our country. The greatest and most important works in the field of construction and architecture bear the seal of progressive and scientific thinking of the engineers and architects graduating from the auditoriums of FCE. Actually, 6200 students have recieved the degrees in different Profiles, among them 3500 as Civil Engineers, over 1000 as Hydrotechnics Engineers, over 900 Architects and Urbanists, over 300 Environmental Engineers and over 500 Geodesy Engineers. Currently, 4123 students are attending their studies at FCE, in all the Profiles.

Brief history of FGM

 Faculty of Geology and Mining is the First Higher School in Albania for preparing specialists in all the Branches of Mining Industry Sciences. The aspects of preparing specialists in these sciences have aimed at development of Geology in all its Directions; preparing Mining Specialists for digging, preparing and exploiting useful mineral deposits and Specialists in drilling of gas and oil wells and oil and gas production. 

The preparation of these new Scientific Branches for the first time in our country required for special and restrictive specialties within the School which grew up and developed quickly alongside with the growth of Faculty. The Faculty started to prepare specialists who responded to the demands of development of Mining Industry. The Faculty of Geology and Mining was created and developed in the framework of the Higher Polytechnic Institute of Tirana. On this basis, the students were awarded the title ‘Engineer’ for all the profiles they had studied. This is related to the Profound Engineering Preparation of the Plans and Education Curricula. The same approach continues nowadays.
