The Faculty of Technical Sciences was established in Novi Sad, in May, 1960. It consists of 13 departments, 14 administrative services and 37 research centers. With over 16.000 students and 1.200 employees, covering the area of around 40.000 m2 divided into 7 buildings, the Faculty ranks among the largest and most developed faculties in the region. At the moment, Science-Technology Park is under construction and it will represent one of the most modern educational facilities in the sphere of technical sciences in Serbia. It will also stand as the largest building built in the last thirty years within the campus of University of Novi Sad. Rapid response in generating new technologies and the need to renovate the existing ones as well as the intensive growth of the economy and the social sector, demand the corresponding development of research work, research-oriented faculty and the effective centers for transforming the knowledge into purposeful technologies.

About Novi Sad 

Novi Sad is the second largest city in Serbia. It is architecturally (and, to an extent, culturally) different from other larger cities in central and south Serbia such as Belgrade and Niš, since it was not under the Ottoman influence but instead, that of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The buildings in the city centre resemble the ones in Vienna and Budapest. Novi Sad is a university town, with more than 40,000 students attending the University of Novi Sad, which is on a beautiful green campus near the Danube. Because of the abundance of young people, Novi Sad has many bars, “hipstery” places, and is generally more open-minded than the rest of Serbia. The people of Novi Sad are known to be relaxed and easy going, sometimes a bit too slow-paced for the other Serbians from the central and south of Serbia (their accent is one example of this). Novi Sad is very flat (which makes it suitable for biking), with wide streets and lots of trees. For those who love hiking, there is a mountain, Fruška Gora, less than 15 km away, which is a national park featuring beautiful nature and many old monasteries. Tourists that come to Novi Sad are usually impressed the most by Serbian cuisine, very low prices by Western standards, and by the hospitality of Serbian people. Many tourists come to Novi Sad for Exit Festival which takes place on the Petrovaradin fortress in early July. Novi Sad is among the first cities outside the European Union to be declared the European Capital of Culture and thus became one of the 60 cities that took this title, fostering the richness of diversity and interculturalism.
