The University of Novi Sad (UNS) is now the second largest among six state universities in the Republic of Serbia. Having invested considerable efforts in intensifying international cooperation and participating in the process of university reforms in Europe, the University of Novi Sad has come to be recognized as a reform-oriented university in the Danube region and on the map of universities in Europe.
Faculty of Technical Sciences originates from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering which was established by the Decree of the National Assembly of People's Republic of Serbia on 18th May 1960 as a Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Novi Sad and it was a constituent part of the University of Belgrade. After the founding of the University of Novi Sad on 28th June 1960, the Faculty along with six previously established faculties in Vojvodina was regarded as a part of the University of Novi Sad.
In the first period of its development the Faculty provided educational activities for three different profiles of mechanical engineering. In 1971 electrical and civil engineering studies were founded. Establishment of the Department of Electrical Engineering as well as the Department of Civil Engineering brought about the change of its name into the Faculty of Technical Sciences on 22nd April 1974. In 1979/80 academic year started the studies in the area of traffic engineering, and in 1996/97 the first generation of students of architectural engineering was enrolled. In academic year 1999/2000 several different studies for the new professional profile were introduced: Industrial Engineering and Management, Graphic Engineering and Design, and Environmental Engineering. Study programme for Postal Services and Telecommunications were introduced at the department for traffic engineering in 1999/2000. Interdisciplinary studies of Mechatronics were established in 2002/03 academic year. In 2006/07 academic year the first generation of students of PhD studies was enrolled at the Faculty (according to the Law on Higher Education), and in 2007/08 academic year the introduction of the studies of geodesy and geomatics engineering rounds off the educational activities of the Faculty. Faculty of Technical Sciences offers a very prominent educational profile for prospective engineers, which ranks it among the most developed institutions in the field of technology in our country.
