Creators of Future

Dragan Aleksendrić PhD, the University of Belgrade Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (CorD magazine) The University of Belgrade’s Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is organized to train future engineers who will be able to respond to the new challenges of Serbia’s development. At the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade students learn how to improve the functional characteristics of some system over a longer period of time; how to incorporate mechanisms to learn, conclude and adapt to new working conditions.Artificial intelligence techniques ensure the most important features of future intelligent systems: learning, “creativity”, “thinking”, reasoning, understanding, autonomous behavior, adaptability, the ability to self organize etc. Artificial intelligence doesn’t essentially differ from that which is known to us as human intelligence – it’s… више

Radivoje Mitrović PhD, Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade: Industry 4.0

Radivoje Mitrović PhD, Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering ( CorD magazine ) Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, during five years already, organize International Conference about Industry 4.0, the first international consulting of this kind in the country. Today it’s called the new technological revolution, the fourth of its kind, which changes creating of new products and services, thanks to digitization and automation based on artificial intelligence. The mechanical engineer is in the middle of this breakthrough. We’ve always been dedicated to educate top mechanical engineers, having in mind: high-quality teaching, scientific research, international cooperation and cooperation with the economy. A graduate mechanical engineer is today considered everywhere as having the most desirable vocation in the first half of the… више

The route to J-integral by prof. James Rice

Professor James Rice, world-leading expert in the field of mechanics, recently visited the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade, where he held a heavily attended lecture devoted to the 50th anniversary of his paper about the J-integral. The lecture was a part of the international fracture mechanics Summer School, an event that accompanied the 22nd European Conference on Fracture which is currently taking place at the “Metropol” hotel. James rice is a professor of engineering sciences and geophysics at the Harvard University in the USA. Fifty years ago he formulated one of the most important fracture mechanics parameters, the so-called J-integral, which is defined as one of the means for calculating of the change in fracture surface strain energy, which… више

ECF 22 – Global scientific elite in Belgrade

The problems of fracture mechanics and structural integrity were the central topic of the 22. European Conference on Fracture, which takes place in Belgrade, from 27th to 31st of August this year. More than 500 participants from all over the world will consider the most important aspects of this field of mechanics, which studies problems related to cracks and their effects on the behaviour of materials and structures. The conference was organised by the Structural Integrity and Life Society “Prof. dr Stojan Sedmak”, in cooperation with the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS). This conference on fracture, the first to be held in Serbia after 26 years, was officially opened on Monday, August 27th at the Metropol Hotel in Belgrade. The… више

Nemanja Gligorijevic – A student and an entrepreneur

Nemanja Gligorijević is a student of the final year of master studies at the Production Engineering department of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. However, he already has his own small-size company which produces 3D printers and provides 3D printing services. “It was my desire to confirm in practice the degree of a mechanical engineer and the knowledge obtained at the faculty. Hence, I designed and manufactured several models of 3D printers. In June last year, together with my sister, I founded the start-up company Highbreed Systems and we are currently the only 3D printer producers in Serbia”, says Nemanja. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has a yearlong tradition of an educational institution which encourages the students to be innovative and… више

The J21 Jastreb – The custodian of the tradition of aeronautical engineering

The J-21 Jastreb (Hawk), the first domestic fighting aircraft which was serially produced in the former Yugoslavia, has been recently placed on the plateau in front of the Aeronautical Technical Institute of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade. The aircraft is positioned on a six-metre high pedestal in slight ascent, which creates an impression that it is really flying and draws the attention of passers-by on daily basis. The J-21 Jastreb is training and fighting aircraft designed at the Aeronautical Technical Institute with great participation of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, says Dr Časlav Mitrović, the Head of the Department, which has recently celebrated eight decades of educating aeronautical engineers in Serbia. The… више

CLEAN-kWAT project – Achieving the balance between energy systems and the environment

The first results of the international CLEAN-kWAT project, in which the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is a participant, have been recently presented at the 48th International Congress on Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning held in Belgrade. The basic aim of the project is to support the system of education of young engineers in the energy supply sector. The idea is to develop innovative materials which would help integrate environmental considerations into energy systems development. Some of the most important project results include developing training materials for young engineers, the e-learning portal and videos. The participants of the Erasmus+ KA2 CLEAN-kWAT project are eight reputable scientific institutions, companies and NGOs from Turkey, Germany, Serbia, Spain and Hungary. The project is funded with… више

The DualEdu Project – Domestic needs, foreign experiences and the best model for Serbia

The DualEdu Erasmus+ project, aimed at the implementation of dual education in higher education in Serbia, has been recently presented at the first kick-off meeting of the project team at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The project brings together 14 permanent partners from Serbia, Germany, Austria, France, Spain and Poland. It started on 15th October 2017 and is scheduled to last over the next three years. The basic idea is to make a dual education model in the system of higher education that would be general enough, but also flexible, and which could be implemented depending on the needs of higher education institutions, says professor Nenad Zrnić, Vice-Dean for international scientific cooperation at the FME. The development of the expert… више

Students of the Industrial Engineering module – Winners of the Bosch week

Danijela Živanović, Ivana Knežević, Miloš Perić, Alen Alidini and Dragomir Zec are the members of the team of students from the Industrial Engineering module that provided the best solution to the case study at the competition held as a part of the week of the Robert Bosch Company. These talented young people proudly say that this competition was a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate in practice the high quality of education of engineers at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Four student teams participated in solving the case study, formed of students attending different modules of the FME – industrial engineering, production engineering, food industry engineering and thermal power engineering.
