The University of Belgrade School of Electrical Engineering also known as Faculty of Electrical Engineering (Serbian: Електротехнички факултет Универзитета у Београду) is a constituent body of the University of Belgrade. The word Faculty in Europe stands for an academic institution, the sub-unit inside the University.

The first university level lecture in the field of electrical engineering in Serbia was held in 1894. Professor Stevan Marković was the first lecturer and founder of Electrical Engineering Chair within the Engineering department of the Belgrade Higher School. In 1898, Marković also founded the first electrical engineering laboratory in Serbia.

The school comprises a number of departments: Software Engineering, Basic Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics, Telecomunications and Information Technology, Signal Processing and Automation, Power Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Physical Electronics.[2]

History[edit]

The first university level lecture in the area of electrical engineering was held in 1894. Professor Stevan Markovic was the first lecturer and founder of Electrical Engineering Chair with Engineering department of Belgrade Higher School. Only four years later, Professor Markovic also founded electrical engineering laboratory. Since then, this area has been studied at the Higher School, and later at the University of Belgrade which developed from it. First diplomas in this area were given in 1922.

The education of electrical engineers has been considerably expanded after reorganization of the engineering department in 1935. The mechanical department became Mechanical Electrical Engineering department, within which, in 1937, four new departments were formed- mechanical, aeronautical, power systems engineering and telecommunications. Due to the lack of lab equipment forming of the fourth department (telecommunications) was postponed until the end of the Second World war. In the year of 1946. the department of electrical engineering was formed. That department grew into the School of Electrical Engineering two years later, with its Power Systems Engineering and Telecommunications departments. In 1955. a new department was founded - Physical Electronics.

In following years the Telecommunications department was broadened in the areas of electronics, automatics and computer science. The fourth department - Computer science - was formed in 1987.

Notable alumni[edit]

Some of the school's famous students include: Nenad Bogdanović, Petar V. Kokotovic, Miroslav Krstić, Aleksandar Lazarevic, Mihajlo D. Mesarovic, Josip Pečarić and Aleksandra Smiljanić.
