The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies (FEEIT), as the department carying the work, is a high educational institution which is part of UKIM. It has a long term tradition in education, research and know-how transfer in the field of electrical engineering and information technologies.

In the 60-year period of scientific and educational work, more than 6000 students and professionals have obtained BSc in EE, MSc and PhD diplomas. Well-equipped laboratories provide a good working environment for students, enabling them to solve complex practical tasks. Conceptually, the study programs meet domestic as well as international academic criteria, while the European ECTS gives students an opportunity to continue their studies abroad.

The international accreditation of UKIM FEEIT’s
study programs has been conducted by ASIIN – a German agency for accreditation
of study programs in the field of technical sciences, information technology (IT),
natural science and mathematics. In 2018 the Faculty opened the Centre for
Technology Transfer and Innovations (INNOFEIT) in order to support the
development of a knowledge economy, based on innovation and specifically by
undertaking activities that will increase tangible knowledge transfer from academia
to the business community at national, regional and international levels. Housing the
first and only operational Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) in North Macedonia,
INNOFEIT offers opportunities for networking, technology development, testing and
validation as well as R&D&I activities.


In the UKIM Pilot Demonstration, the Smart Energy Systems Group (SESG) will be formed, by bringing together experts from different institutes in a compact and congruent entity. The vision for the Group is to develop research aimed at tackling future-oriented challenges related to the decarbonization of large-scale and local energy system across various sectors, technological domains and markets. SESG will bring together expertise from different disciplines, such as energy sector coupling, electrification of heating and transport, energy storage and distributed energy sources. Hence, it will offer a set of core R&I competences, such as energy system analysis, optimal operation and control, optimal investment decision making, game theoretic analysis, data-driven analysis and simulation of electromagnetic transients. Through formally linking SESG to the Centre for Technology Transfer and Innovations (INNOFEIT), supported by the INITIATE approach, SESG will include regional stakeholders in R&I process leading to joint actions, projects and research outputs. Through coordinated activities with other two pilots and R&I Labs, international outreach of SESG will be secured, guaranteeing the scientific excellence through institutional transformation supported by the INITIATE.
