One of life's key landmarks—choosing SSST

Choosing a place of study is one of the most important decisions a person will make in his or her lifetime. We believe that an SSST degree and experience will prove to be one of your key investments, as it will open the door to new opportunities and prepare you for a world beyond the classroom. In each of our graduating generations, our students have secured places at the best post-graduate programs in the world, and are consistently employed by leading companies in the region and beyond.

SSST offers rigorous academic programmes, a global perspective, excellent staff and faculty from top universities around the world, as well as cutting-edge research, which has contributed to the technical and social progress of our country and region. Our community is a tight knit group of remarkable individuals interested in intellectual inquiry, who will go on to be the next generation of leaders, thinkers and doers, and who – we are certain – will make a difference in the world.

While a candidate’s academic performance is the most important criteria under consideration in the admission process, accomplishments outside of the classroom, demonstrated commitment to the broader community, and personal qualities such as resiliency, motivation and ambition are certainly considered in accepting a student to our academic community. Our academic programs, research institutes, and staff help our university define what we are; our students, however, define who we are, and where we are going.

Through a unique partnership, SSST is able to offer students not only an SSST degree (accepted in Bosnia and Herzegovina) but also a United Kingdom degree, as well as a second marketable specialty (minor) to increase your competitiveness in the marketplace. With this same competitiveness in mind, students leave SSST with two foreign languages: German as well as English. Moreover, SSST has a diverse student body consisting of students from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina and foreign students, while our faculty comes from various countries. These diverse groups have built a sophisticated culture at SSST – one of international networks, cross-cultural interactions, a sharing of information and research, and diverse internship opportunities.

Today, The Sarajevo School of Science and Technology continues its process of never-ending innovation, always searching for better ways to serve our youth, the country and the region. We hope that you will join our university on our journey of discovery and take part in our pioneering spirit—a spirit that aims to prepare students to excel academically, professionally, and personally.
We look forward to getting to know you.
