Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Sarajevo

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Sarajevo is the oldest and largest higher education institution in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which educates staff in various fields of electrical engineering and computer science.

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering* was founded in 1961. Since 1962, there have been two departments: the Department of Power Engineering and the Department of Automation and Electronics. The Department of Informatics was formed in 1972, and the Department of Telecommunications in 1976.

Today, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering educates leading experts in the field of power engineering, automation and electronics, computing and informatics and telecommunications through three cycles of education with a total of 12 study programs.

Today, the Faculty is located on the campus of the University of Sarajevo in facilities whose area allows a standard of approximately 5 m2 per student. For certain laboratory exercises, the Faculty also uses the capacities of public companies JP Elektroprivreda BiH and Telecom BiH.

From its foundation until today, 19,496 students have graduated from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Sarajevo under the Ante Bologna study program (ETF-AB), 564 candidates have obtained the degree of Master of Science and 130 candidates have obtained the degree of Doctor of Technical Sciences. According to the Bologna study program (ETF-B), the first cycle of studies (Bachelor) was completed by 2529 students, professional studies by 36 students, the second cycle of studies (Master's) by 1440 students and the third cycle of studies (PhD) by 24 students.

Today, the Faculty employs: -49 teachers - (full time 18, associate professor 22, assistant professor 9)

  • 29 assistants- (senior Assistant 15, Assistant14)


The following are engaged in additional employment:

  • 6 teachers (full time 5, associate professor 1)
  • 30 assistants- (senior Assistant 15, Assistant 15)


In the current academic year 2022/2023, 1445 students were enrolled in the first, professional and second cycle of studies.

The study takes place within four departments:

  • Department of Automation and Electronics, where 291 students study in both study cycles;
  • Department of Power Engineering, where 220 students study in both study cycles;
  • Department of Computing and Informatics, where 681 students study in both study cycles and 119 students in the professional study of software development;
  • Department of Telecommunications, where 134 students study in both study cycles;


Today, classes in each of the four Departments are realized according to two curricula:

  • Old program (ETF- AB - Ante Bologna)
  • New program (ETF - B - Bologna)



The new teaching (ETF-B) program enables the mobility of students during their studies and the equivalence of diplomas within the European higher education environment (ERA and EHEA).

The new curriculum enables student mobility during their studies and the equivalence of diplomas within the European Higher Education Environment (ERA and EHEA). Students who study according to the new curriculum, after the end of the third year (first cycle) and achieved 180 ECTS credits (including the final thesis that brings 12 ECTS credits) acquire the title of Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Electrical Engineer). After that, they can be employed or continue their studies in the second cycle, which lasts two years and which allows them to acquire the title of Master of Engineering (Bachelor of Engineering). To acquire this title, it is necessary to achieve a new 120 ECTS credits.

After completing the first (undergraduate) and second (graduate) cycles, the student can be employed or continue their studies within the third (postgraduate) cycle, which lasts three years (180 ECTS credits) and which enables the acquisition of the scientific title of Doctor of Technical Sciences.

The third cycle of studies at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering will be organized starting from the academic year 2010/2011 until the second cycle will be completed by students of the first generation of ETF-B studies.

ETF is internationally accredited by the following accreditation organizations ASIN, EQANIE, ENAEE and EUR-ACE.

In addition to activities in its basic educational activities, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering has been and remains a place of intensive scientific research and other activities related to the promotion of science and technology from its inception until today.

The faculty owned a number of laboratories within its pre-war location in Lukavica, where many research and development projects were implemented that were directly contracted with funds for scientific work at the national and federal level, as well as with industrial giants such as Energoinvest, Elektroprivreda BiH , Unis, Famos and others.

The Faculty has also implemented a number of research and development projects for the then Sizov for scientific work at both the Federal and Republican levels, and in the period 1985-1991 was the holder of several large projects labeled DC (Social Goals) and had significant funds and budget for multi-year research and development.
