University of Kragujevac is a modern educational and research center embracing all major areas of teaching and research, presently comprising 12 faculties with over 20.000 students and more than 1.000 academics. The University was established and developed based on the concept of dispersed university, comprising its faculties in six towns of Central Serbia. However, the University managed to turn this into one of its most distinctive advantages, which allows it to use economic and geographical potentials and human resources from the territory, which spreads over an area of 5000 square kilometers and has about 2.5 million citizens. One of the leading principles of the University of Kragujevac is to become a part of the European higher education area and to adjust its plans and programs against this aim, in the context of the reform of higher education system within the EU programmes. University of Kragujevac has been involved in many European projects (Erasmus+, Tempus).
Faculty of Technical Sciences (FTN) Čačak is one of the most prominent faculty-member of the University of Kragujevac. It educates future engineers, teachers and managers, and became first-level scientific and educational institution in the region.
