The Department of Telecommunications was founded in 1969 just after the establishment of the Faculty of Electronic Engineering in Niš. Professors Georgije Lukatela, Ilija Stojanović, Ilija Hadži-Nešić, Aleksandar Marinčić, and Husnija Kurtović from the School of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade gave the most significant contribution to the establishment and development of the Department of Telecommunications. Also, Dušan Drajić, Grozdan Petrović, Slobodan Lazović, Miroslava Milošević, Čedomir Živaljević, Rade Petrović enhanced the quality of teaching and research work at the department. A group of lecturers and assistants from the Department of Theoretical Electrical Engineering (Bratislav Milovanović, Miodrag Gmitrović, Vera Marković and Vladan Stanković) started to work at the Department of Telecommunications in 1989. They extended the research work and courses in the area of microwave technique, antennas and electromagnetic wave propagation. Prof. Dr. Ilija Stojanović, Prof. Dr. Ilija Hadži Nešić, Prof. Dr. Rade Petrović, Prof. Dr. Mihajlo Stefanović, Prof. Dr. Bratislav Milovanović, Prof. Dr. Zorica Nikolić, all had the function of the Head of the Department of Telecommunications. Prof. Dr. Vera Marković is the Head of the Department.

The teaching staff of the Department of Telecommunications includes 15 lecturers (8 full professors, 4 associate professors, 3 assistant professors) and 11 associates (6 teaching assistants with PhD, 4 teaching assistants with MSc in technical sciences, 1 teachnig associate), and 1 laboratory technician.

The department members issued more than 2000 scientific papers (among them around 150 were published in international SCI journals), 11 monographs, 3 chapters in monographs, 7 textbooks, 8 supplementary textbooks and 27 technical solutions. The professors from the Department of Telecommunications have supervised 33 PhD theses and 63 Master theses.

The members of the Department of Telecommunications are reviewers and the editor board members of the eminent international journals for many years. They have also participated in a great number of scientific and technological projects funded by the Ministry of Science and Technological Development, commercial projects financed by external manufacturers and other institutions, and in several international projects (COST, WUS, TEMPUS).

The journal Microwave Review, the leading scientific journal of the national importance, which is a publication of the National Society for Microwave Theory and Technique, has been edited by the members of the Department of Telecommunications since 2002. Also, the department members are involved in editing the TELFOR Journal, founded by the Society for Telecommunications.

The series of biennial international Conferencies on Telecommunications in Modern Satellite, Cable and Broadcasting Services – TELSIKS, technically supported by IEEE societies, have been organized by the Department of Telecommunications since 1993. Members of the Department of Telecommunications is also involved in organizing International Scientific Conference on Information, Communication and Energy Systems and Technologies – ICEST, which takes place at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering Niš every third year.
