The history of the Faculty dates back to 1962 when the Postal, Telephone and Telegraph Services College was established. In 1965, a specialized institution – the Institute of Transport Sciences – was founded on the initiative and with financial support of thirteen Croatian companies and associations.

In 1968, Faculty of Civil Engineering organized the Transport and Traffic Programme to educate bachelor-degree experts in this field in cooperation with the professors from various faculties of the University of Zagreb, more specifically: Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Economics and Business, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture and Faculty of Law.

The need for University-degree and Polytechnics-degree experts in road transport led to the founding of Road Transport Polytechnics in 24 Kraljevićeva street in 1970.

In 1972, Aeronautical Polytechnic in Zagreb was established, and Air Traffic Study Programme was organized. At first two fields of study were offered – air transport and aeronautics, and later aero-technical studies were added.

In 1981, Transport Sciences Centre was established comprising two institutions: Traffic Sciences College dedicated to scientific-educational work and the Institute of Traffic Sciences dedicated to scientific-research work.

Throughout its existence, Transport and Traffic Programme provided some form of railway transport study program, but its formal beginning is related to a resolution issued on April 13, 1982. The resolution states that the University of Zagreb’s Program of Transportation Sciences meets all the requirements for the courses to be organized and conducted.

On October 10, 1984, Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences of the University of Zagreb was registered as an independent scientific-educational and scientific-research organization whose activity is of special interest to the community. As prescribed by the Statute of the Faculty, this day is marked as the Day of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences.

Great effort has been made for transport and traffic studies to earn their place in the higher education system of the University of Zagreb

The Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences is situated at three locations in the City of Zagreb: 4 Vukelićeva Street, 2 Kušlanova Street and Borongaj Campus, 83 Borongajska Street. The Faculty also owns premises at Airfield Lučko.

There are 222 employees working at the Faculty; 122 members of teaching staff and 100 in administrative and other services.
