Technical faculty in Bor was established in the year 1961 as the Mining-metallurgical faculty with two departments – Mining and Metallurgy. The faculty belongs to the University of Belgrade, the oldest, the biggest and the most prestigeous state university in Serbia.
In the autumn 1961 teaching classes started at the faculty at four departments: Mining at the Major for exploiting of mineral layers and the Major for preparation of minerals. At the Department of metallurgy classes were held at the Major for extractive metallurgy and the Major for processing metallurgy. In the year 1971 the faculty opened the Major for mechanical engineering in mining and metallurgy.
By changes of the Faculty statute in 1977, the Major for mechanical engineering in mining and metallurgy was promoted into the Department for mechanical engineering with two majors – Mechanical engineering in mining and Mechanical engineering in metallurgy. In the same year the Faculty got a new permission for openning a new department – the Department for inorganic chemical technology. Such expanded activity of the faculty led to change of its name into Technical faculty in Bor.
In 1985 the Faculty management stopped enrolling students in the Department for mechanical engineering, thus this department was completely stopped in 1992.
In 2002 the Faculty opened several new departments – the Department for industrial management, Department for industrial information science and the Department for electro-mechanical engineering. In the year 2007 the enrolments in the Department for electro-mechanical engineering were completely stopped and in the year 2008 in the Department for industrial information science.
In the year 2005 the reform of academic education was done in Serbia according to the principles of Bolonia declaration. By new law on academic education, the education load of students is defined as ECTS (European Credits Transfer System) and academic studies were classified into three levels: Basic, Graduate-master and Doctoral.
In 2008 the Faculty applied for accreditation for academic study programmes (curriculums):Mining engineering, Metallurgical engineering, Technological engineering and Engineering management. All the curriculums are adjusted with the Bolonia declaration.
In 2007 the Faculty was accredited as a scientific-research organisation in the area of technical-technological science. Postgraduate studies have been maintained at this faculty since academic year 1974/75 as specialist, master and doctoral studies.
At foundation the faculty was located in the building of the mentioned French cassino. After some years several new buildings were cbuilt, thus today the faculty premises have available over 6000 m².
The education process on Technical Faculty in Bor is realised on the following study programs, accredited in 2009 and 2013 (for detailed explanations and curriculums click on the name of the study program):
A part of enrolled students is financed from the budget of the Republic of Serbia while the rest of students pay studies by themself.
International cooperation is one of important activities of the Technical Faculty in Bor, as one of the fundamental postulates of high education and aspirations towards the creation of a unified platform of higher education in Europe and the world.
Modernity and the international harmonization of this study program confirms the cooperation of the Technical Faculty with many institutions in the world, Europe and the Balkans.
Technical Faculty in Bor is also a member of some networks, which have been formed recently. So, as a ‘product’ of one joint international project, the Resita Academic Network on „Entrepreneurship and Innovation“ has been established, involving universities from Austria, Albania, BiH, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia. Also, a network, formed from different faculties teaching metallugical studies – BiH, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, have been joined recently into METNET network.
The mobility at all levels of academic studies is achieved thanks to the participation of staff in several international projects, using the SSM – short scientific missions for teachers and students higher levels of study.
Due to the modern world trends in engineering profession and science, current active international cooperation reflected in a number of published papers and citations on the list of SCI and significantly affect the impact of research work of teachers at the Faculty.
The Journal of Mining and Metallurgy is an international journal for theory and practice of mining and metallurgy. Section A: Mining is classified as a national scientific review, while Section B: Metallurgy entered into the SCI Expanded list in 2009.
The review Serbian Journal of Management is an international journal for theory and practice of management science. According to MNTR it is classified into the category of national scientific reviews.
Every year the faculty organizes four scientific meetings – International October Conference on Mining and Metallurgy, Ecological Truth and Environmental Research, May Conference on Strategical Management and International Mineral Processing and Recycling Conference.
