Dr. Nadežda Stojković is the chair of the project Language and Literature, supported by the Ministry of Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia and the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, for the period 2006-2010. She was granted a complimentary library donation by the Embassy of the USA for the outstanding quality of work at the faculty. She has organized several lectures by the invited professors from the renowned universities in the USA. On ’Elektrijada 2006’ the students of Faculty of Electronic Engineering won the first prize at the competition in English Language.
The course of English Language deals with the English Language for Science and Technology, specifically English Language for Electronics. In this, the subject closely follows the worldwide trend of teaching the aspects of language significantly important for the area of expertise taught at the faculty. The content of the subject is regularly updated to match the current developments in the target science and the needs of future professionals in terms of linguistics. The course is thus designed to be a proper and primarily useful preparation for future engineers so as to make them highly competitive in today’s global economy that needs English language and professional communication.
In the future, the Department will follow the trends in the fields that deal with the developments of contemporary society. This primarily relates to the ethical education of engineers that have gained a differentiated shape on the leading universities and engineering schools throughout the world. Also, the knowledge of business communications is crucial for understanding and successful performing of professional duties. Of special importance is the theme of the principles and criteria of sustainability and the relevance of sustainable development in general from the stance of ethics, ecology, ecological economy.
