Faculty of Technical Sciences
Faculty of Technical Sciences ( www.ftn.uns.ac.rs
) is one of the most modern organized higher education institutions in the region with a long tradition, and engineers educated at this Faculty, work and achieve remarkable results in companies that are connected with technology, production, education or services.
The Faculty was founded on 18 May 1960 as a Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The strong development of the economy and the needs of the society contributed to the initiation of new fields of electrical engineering and civil engineering, so in 1974 the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering grew into the Faculty of Technical Sciences.
Today, the faculty consists of 13 departments that educate engineers, graduate engineers, master engineers, specialists and doctors of science in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computing, energy, civil and geodesy, traffic, architecture and urban planning, stage design, environmental and protection at work, graphic engineering and design, computer graphics, mechatronics, biomedical engineering, industrial engineering, engineering management and applied mathematics. The Faculty has accredited 90 study programs of all levels, which cover the technical-technological field, the natural-mathematical field, the field of art and the medical field through interdisciplinary studies.
More than 14,000 students are educated at the Faculty of Technical Sciences and have more than 1,200 employees. On the first year of study, school year 2017/2018. 2,336 students were enrolled. The Faculty covers an area of 30.000m2 in 7 buildings.
