Dr. Veljko Milutinovic is a professor of School of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade (ETF)
and head of the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics (RTI).
His Ph.D. at the ETF in Belgrade with Professor Lukatela
(which had a crucial influence on his further scientific development)
and after that, during the 80's about 10 years was engaged as a professor at Purdue University in the U.S.
(ranked among the top 10 in the U.S. in the field of RTI)
where noted as a co-author of architecture and design of the first GaAs microprocesora in the world,
agency DARPA project Star Wars,
which later on brought him the award Fellow of the IEEE
(which before the war of our people only Tesla and Pupin got; both are: Fellow of the IRE);
This project has realised processor speed of 200MHz about a decade before Intel,
and his book that describes the details of the process was a best-seller in the U.S. for the IEEE PRESS.
During the 90's, after returning to Serbia, he took part in teaching
at the University of Purdue, Stanford and MIT (the second and first in the United States in the field of RTI)
and had about 20 books published by leading U.S. publishers.
For 7 of them forewords were written by 7 different Nobel Prize winners
(one of them is realized with co-author who is the current president of Stanford University, Dr. John Hennessy,
and the other with the dean of the ETF at MIT, Dr. Jack Dennis).
After year 2000, he participated in 4 different FP6 and FP7 four different project
through collaboration with leading universities and industries in the EU / US,
including Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Intel, Ericsson, especially Maxeler,
which currently produces the fastest supercomputers in the world
(for which 10 of his former students from ETF are working)
and ownership is of his former student at Stanford, Dr. Oskar Mencer.
Several prominent universities in the EU has engaged him as a consultant to design the mechanisms
for greater scientific productivity and better placement
on the famous Shanghai list of best universities in the world;
among them is Barcelona, where currently 40 of his former students from ETF
work for a doctorate in a joint project, and their mentor is his former student from Purdue University, Dr. Mateo Valero.
Engaged on the Japanese Space Elevator project,
led by his former student at MIT, Dr. Hiro Fujii.
He has lectured by invitation to over 100 European universities.
In Serbia, he has a successful technical cooperation with banks: Commercial, EFG, Intesa, and Raiffeisen.
He has published about 40 papers in IEEE journals and currently has about 400 SCI citations.
He is married and has three sons.
