Abstract

The interdisciplinary students' workshop "Where the Railway Is?" tried to devise sustainable, environment friendly and cost effective solutions for the reconstruction of an abandoned railway line in Baranya, Eastern Croatia. The workshop integrated different architectural and organizational aspects of the construction process and was a result of cooperation between twenty students of the final, fourth year of civil engineering studies at the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Osijek, and a group of teachers of subjects Industrial Buildings, Construction Management and Masonry Structures at the Faculty. Workshop was devised with two main goals in sight; one was to acknowledge significant changes in higher education in Croatia in the last few years and incorporate them, together with other contemporary accomplishments in teaching at university level, into civil engineering studies. The other goal for the Faculty was to stress its social role and take an active and responsible approach to society's problems.
