The University of Applied Sciences in Ferizaj (UASF) was established by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) on July 6, 2015 and was ratified by the Parliament of the Republic of Kosovo on July 16, 2015.
The tradition of academic and scientific work in Ferizaj dates back to 1976, when the Assembly of Kosovo established the Center for Higher Education. The Center had a Machinery and Wood Industry Section, as well as a Workers’ Section.
In the 1988 academic year, the Center for Higher Education was abolished and the Technical High School was established, with the Machinery and Wood Industry Section, while the Workers’ Section was completely abolished.
In the academic year 2002/03, new curricula were approved according to the Bologna system for basic studies (Bachelor), for the Department of Machinery with the profile: Artificial Materials Processing Technique and the Department of Wood Industry with the profile: Wood Processing .
With the decision of the Steering Council of the University of Prishtina, on 05.09.2005, Technical High School is transformed into the Faculty of Applied Technical Sciences (FATS), with the same Departments and profiles, while later at the Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS), by enabling the Faculty to develop programs beyond technical ones.
