Nenad Bojčetić was born in Sisak, Croatia, in 1965. He enrolled in the study of Mechanical Engineering at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture University of Zagreb (UNIZAG-FSB) in 1985 and in 1991 he graduated as Master of Mechanical Engineering at the same institution with specialization in the Engineering Design. After graduation he applied for the position at the Chair of Design and Product Development at UNIZAG-FSB as a young researcher he also started his PhD study. In 1996. he received M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, Chair for Design and Product Development, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb, 1996, Advisor: Prof. Dorian Marjanović and in 2001. Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the same faculty.
He participated in a number of research projects and was project member on three research projects funded by Ministry of Science and Technology of Republic of Croatia: “Models of Intelligent Computer Aided Design System” (1996-2001); “Models and Methods of Advanced Computer Support to Product Development” (2002-2006) and “Models and Methods of Knowledge Management in Product Development” (since 2007). He was also a project member on EUREKA founded project "E!4911 TRaceability of ENgineering INformation – TRENIN", (2009-2011) (www.trenin.org).
He also participated or led couple of industrial project on PLM implementation and customization (Cimos ltd., Koncar - Power Transformers ltd. and Koncar - Medium Voltage Apparatus Inc.) and on CAD customization (Dalekovod ltd., Gorenje ltd., Koncar - Generators and Motors Inc., IHS ltd., MotoMAN ltd., Elan ltd.)
The primary field of research and scientific focus of Mr Bojčetić in last 25 years has been multidisciplinary field of the CAD, CAE applications, knowledge management and technical information systems in engineering design.
Mr Bojčetić is a member of HDESK (Croatian Society for machine elements and design) and international organisation The Design Society.
He has actively participated in the organisation of the biennial DESIGN series event since 1998 that regularly attracts more than 250 experts from more than 30 countries around the world.
Besides the scientific and professional work, Mr Bojčetić is involved in teaching through UNIZAG-FSB undergraduate and graduate study programs in knowledge management, technical information systems and CAD. As a part-time assistant lecturer he held tutorials at the Polytechnics of Zagreb and Study of Design at the Faculty of Architecture. He was also involved in tutorials on advanced usage of various CAD and PLM applications. Mr Bojčetić is using English on intermediate level.
