Faculty of Mechanical Engineering Kraljevo (MFKV) is located at town Kraljevo in Central Serbia. With 70,000 inhabitants, Kraljevo is an little industrial city with one very big metal processing company (Wagon Factory Kraljevo) and several medium-small wood processing factories (as the associate GIR). The Faculty itself is also small, with 50 teaching staff and around 300 students. This combination of a small faculty in a relatively small town is a well-scaled solution for testing a different approach of collaboration between university and industry, being that both the Faculty and industry represent flexible units with good mutual connections. Infrastructure at the Faculty is well-developed, being that acts as independent node of academic internet network, providing services to local education institution. The Faculty carries out education and research in areas of manufacturing engineering and construction of heavy machinery, aimed mainly to support development of local industry.
