About us

The Department of Telecommunications (DOTFEESA) was founded in 1976, and it is one of four departments of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Sarajevo. Since 2005, study programs have been harmonized with the Bologna Declaration, and are divided into Bachelor, Master and Doctoral Studies.

The bachelor’s study program, with a duration of three years, is oriented towards fundamentals of engineering practice and telecommunication knowledge, and it is accredited by ASIIN – the German member of European Quality Assurance Association in Higher Education (ENQA). On the other hand, the master’s study program with a duration of two years is oriented towards practical engineering work and scientific-research activities.

The Department of Telecommunications is equipped with modern laboratories for radio communications, telecommunications techniques, software-defined networks, server laboratory and Internet of Things laboratory. In these laboratories, components and systems for wireless transmission of information, active and passive network devices, telecommunications software, and Internet of Things applications are being studied and practically implemented using advanced simulators, emulators and development platforms such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, NetFPGA, USRP and more.

During studies, students acquire fundamental knowledge in theoretical electrical engineering while specialized knowledge, skills and competencies are gained through practical work, laboratory exercises and project assignments, which make students competitive on the labour market.

Students have the opportunity to collaborate with international academic and industrial partners, and within Erasmus+, CEEPUS, DAAD and Mevlana’s exchange projects, our students carry out part of their study program at partner universities in many European countries. In addition, students often attend various workshops and lectures held by foreign lecturers, and as a result of cooperation with numerous business partners, they participate in frequent visits to companies possessing technical resources and knowledge.

The Department of Telecommunication has implemented numerous local and international scientific and research projects and aims to strengthen cooperation with industrial partners to improve the telecommunications sector of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Europe.

Research areas of our department are Radio Communications, Internet of Things, Software Defined Radio, FPGA-based Packet Processing, Multimedia Signal Processing,    Telecommunication Networks, Software Defined Networks and  Quantum Cryptography.
