Computer engineering – doctoral studies

Many companies achieve economic growth thanks to considerable investments in research in the field of computer engineering, which requires the knowledge provided by these doctoral studies.

This primarily includes thorough knowledge and understanding of disciplines such as the design of micro and nano electronic and optical components, advanced signal processing, design of advanced algorithms for medical image processing, design of computer hardware and software in the field of computer networks. Furthermore, there are theoretical issues that enable the continuation of research and scientific contribution in the field of computer engineering.

Computer engineering

  • Study program: Doctoral studies – Computer Engineering (reaccredited in 2015, and again in 2021)
  • The previous name of the study program: Signal Processing in Telecommunications ( accredited in 2009)
  • Duration: 3 years (180 ECTS credits)
  • Academic title: Doctor of Electrical Engineering and Computing
  • Number of students: 5 students

Tuition fees

From a student’s point of view, tuition is an investment in their own future.

Tuition includes:

  • classes,
  • individual consultations,
  • taking exams,
  • materials in printed or electronic form,
  • software licenses,
  • unlimited access to the Internet,
  • use of other faculty resources,
  • all certificates, forms, diplomas, etc.

Requirements for admission:

  • Completed master studies (a total of 300 ECTS credits)

The price of doctoral studies is €5.000.

In case of a lump sum payment, the total price is €4,500.

In short, there are no hidden costs for students.

Prices are in euros for one year of study, and the payment is made in dinars (RSD) according to the middle exchange rate at the National Bank of Serbia on the day of payment.
