of Textile Chemistry and Ecology was directly involved in the
foundation process of Textile Faculty. As one of the constitutional
units of Faculty of Textile Technology, University of Zagreb,
department presents both educational and research core, acting in
accordance with modern, up to date world trends in the field of
textile-chemical technologies and ecology. New educational curriculum
and courses, formed by the department heads of courses and employees
are compatible with the Bologna Declaration, based on undergraduate
(B.Sc.), graduate (M.Sc.) and doctoral (Ph.D.) courses.
organizes and performs classes in the field of textile finishing,
care, dyeing, printing and colour measurement. Department is equipped
with up to date instruments, accessories and apparatus which enable
both lecture implementation and scientific research to be performed
at the highest level in specialized laboratories.
of the program with European and world standards, as well as
coordination and cooperation with European and American universities
ensures student exchange and ability of taking certain courses abroad
as well as studies continuation outside Croatia. Such an organization
allows connection and cooperation among department professors, while
performing magistrate and doctoral thesis, publishing scientific
papers in frequently cited journals as well as whilst realizing
expertise of the department is based on following disciplines:
textile pretreatment, inter surface phenomena, textile surface
modification, finishing and microwave processes, dyeing, printing,
colour measurement, system of colour management, flammability of
textile materials, textile care, research of multifunctional effects
and analysis of water involved in textile processes considered from
an ecological aspect. These activities are mainly materialized within
the frame of scientific research projects, technological development
projects or international cooperation within European and bilateral
activity of the department is collaboration with Economy on course
development, preparation of elaborates and projects, performance of
surveys, expertise and analysis in the aim of organizing specialized
seminars on newest research and accomplishments in the field of
textile chemical technology and ecology. Furthermore, these
activities include participation in the field of the standardization
process, carried out within the frame of the tasks performed by the
Croatian Standards Institute and other institutions.
is equipped with modern instruments and apparatus, which enable
performance of both courses, as well as scientific and research
activities at the highest level in specialized laboratories:
Technological laboratory, Laboratory for Textile Chemistry and
Ecology, Physical-chemical Laboratory, Laboratory for
Spectrophotometric Measurements and Colour Determination,
Investigations of Materials Flammability Properties Laboratory.
