The Department of Electronic Components and the Department of Technology and Materials, which initially were formed within the Electronic Engineering Section at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, in early seventies merged into a single Department of Electronic Components and Materials. This department changed its name first into the Department of Microelectronics and Electronic Components, which was shortened to the Department of Microelectronics in the early nineties. The department of Microelectronics was the first at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering to organize the graduate level studies by engaging professors and research associates from the University of Ljubljana, “Jožef Štefan” Institute, and “Vinča” Institute. Accordingly, the first master thesis at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering was completed at the Department of Microelectronics.
