The Department of Mathematics and Physics is an integral part of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Sarajevo, almost since the founding of the faculty. Initially, there were teachers and associates from the Faculty of Natural Sciences and other faculties of the University of Sarajevo and later developed and developed their own cadres. The activity of this Department has always been linked to the application of basic science, physics and mathematics in technology and training of students in fundamental knowledge in mathematics, physics, numerical mathematics, drawing geometry, computer technology and electrical engineering.
The fields of study within the Department of Mathematics and Physics are:
The Department of Mathematics and Physics has placed great emphasis on the establishment of a lab for students and despite the large number of students who served it, each student had to perform laboratory exercises. It is also characteristic for the Department that great attention has always been paid to scientific research work and participation in projects and publication of research results
The Department has a physics lab that represents a unique space where first-year students gain practical knowledge through different experiment settings from different fields of physics such as mechanics, optics, atomic physics, and more. Precisely through practical experimentation, students have a better and clearer insight and impression of what they teach, develop cognitive skills in connecting theoretical settings with practical application, are creatively expressed through writing reports, processing measurement results, drawing graphics, and discussion about with set hypotheses in the experiments themselves.
The members of the Department are dealing with various research in the field of mathematics, physics and computer science. In particular, the research of physics atmospheres should be emphasized in the context of the use of the most modern research methods, such as drones, cloud network sensors, and computer simulation of high performance. Throughout their long years of work, the teachers and co-authors of the Department have authored a significant number of books, scripts, and scientific papers indexed in Web of Science, SCOPUS and EBSCO databases. In addition, they were involved in environmental protection projects within the IPES institute, as well as various other domestic and international projects.
