Mission of the Department of Electromechanical Engineering is education and training of future experts in the field of electric machines and drives, as well as management and process automation in industry, power engineering and transport. An equally important aspect is the area of power electronics as the foundation of modern industrialisation in terms of training for the development, engineering design, production management, commissioning and maintenance of modern electrical equipment. The Department consists of two chairs, and it has five laboratories, which resulted from good engineering practice that all courses held within the framework of this Department relate theoretical knowledge to practical work in the laboratory. The vision of the Department of Electromechanical Engineering is based on young professional scientists, whose aim in the coming period is to equip a modern Centre for Electric Machines for the wider region, which, in addition to elementary study and testing of electric machines themselves, entails detailed research in the field of electrical measurements as a basis of electrical engineering, as well as in the field of power electronics as the flywheel in the development of industrial automation, but also new trends in usage of renewable energy sources. The second direction of development is based on current trends in the use of numerical calculations in modelling electromechanical devices based on theoretical electrical engineering the aim of which is to form a scientific research team, or to establish a laboratory for numerical calculations in electrical engineering. In the forthcoming period, the development shall be based on several directions: 

1. Establishment of a modern Centre for Electric Machines as a scientific research centre of excellence within the framework of which the following laboratories shall be affirmed:

• Electric Machines Laboratory
• Electric Drives Laboratory
• 
Laboratory for Electric Circuits Analysis and Metrology
• Power Electronics Laboratory
• Laboratory for Testing Electric Vehicles and Vessels

2. Establishment of the Photovoltaic Power Systems Laboratory as a component of the future Centre for Renewable Energy Sources under the leadership of the Department of Power Engineering. The main task of this Laboratory is to develop procedures for exploring power converters typical of photovoltaic systems.

​3. Establishment of the Numerical Calculation Laboratory as a component of the future Centre for Numerical Calculations in Electrical Engineering, which would be developed parallely by the Department of Communications, the Department of Power Engineering and the Department of Computer Engineering and Automation. Modern trends in the use of numerical calculations in modelling electromechanical devices today are an indispensable part of the process of designing, planning and analysis, and they are based on the fundamental laws of electrical and magnetic fields, Maxwell’s equations and boundary conditions. 

4. Principles of the research strategy aim at creating preconditions for linking scientific research and professional work, which would enable employees of the Department of Electromechanical Engineering to participate in professional projects and expertise. In so doing, the funds necessary for the purchase of equipment for the creation of conditions for research, testing and measurements shall be provided first through scientific projects from pre-accession funds and later on from the Cohesion and Structural Funds. Hence, it is necessary to increase the number of applications for EU research projects in order to reinforce the publication of research results in international scientific journals with the impact factor. It is also necessary to intensify connections with universities in the EU and the immediate region, as well as to apply for joint projects, which also implies greater mobility of scientists of the Department of Electromechanical Engineering. Currently, employees of the Department of Electromechanical Engineering have successful communication with scientists from the immediate region, i.e., Zagreb, Split, Maribor, Budapest, Novi Sad, Tuzla, and Sarajevo, as well as with scientists from Spain, Greece and Ukraine.

 

6. Department of Communications

- Chair of Radiocommunications and Telecommunications
- Chair of Electronics and Microelectronics
- Laboratory for High Frequency Measurements
- Chair of Multimedia Systems and Digital Television

The Department's specific goals are in line with the strategic goals of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, whose final goals include integration into the European Higher Education  Area, increase of competitiveness in the global environment with special attention paid to innovations, development of new methods of knowledge and technology transfer to the economy.  

 

The Department of Communications is active within the scientific and research environment of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek. The Department was established in 2003 and is organised into two chairs (Chair of Electronics and Microelectronics and Chair of Radiocommunications and Telecommuncations) and an accredited Laboratory for HF Measurements.  The Department employs 10 researchers in the scientific-educational title, 2 assistants, 2 research assistants, 2 associates and 1 laboratory technician. Science and research is performed through national scientific projects (3 projects supported by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, from 2007 to 2013), HAKOM, HIT, BICRO, international projects (e.g. Tempus KISEK, Eureka ITEA I and ITEA II), and through research within the frame of the postgraduate doctoral study programme.

The basis for further development of the scientific and research activity at the Department lies in human resources. It should be emphasised at this point that in the past years six young scientists have earned their doctoral degrees and have been appointed into scientific-educational titles.  Furthermore, it is impossible to perform scientific research without investing into infrastructure and research equipment. Therefore, the financial resources obtained through projects like MZOS, BICRO, HIT, Eureka etc. have been invested into research equipment thus ensuring basic conditions for quality research.

The significance of the Department also lies in its plan to strengthen the bonds with the economy and local community. Accordingly, a successful application of new technologies to the economy represents a challenge for establishing new economy subjects, direct economy investments into research, development and innovation resulting in the development of the region and the Republic of Croatia, and hence the creation of new employment opportunities.
