Obtaining donations primarily from students who have graduated and from the companies that use them, at the university, knowledge and skills can be improved working conditions and studying youth at the university, which will be realized a key role in the economic faculties and economic development of the state of Serbia.

Mechanical Engineering today is an institution of national importance and is the basis of development of mechanical science and industry in Serbia. Excellent knowledge of mechanical engineering and techniques acquired by studying at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering makes mechanical engineers technical elite of Serbia.

From the standpoint of the Law on Income Tax Law ("Off. Gazette of RS", no. 25/2001, 80/2002, 80/2002 -. Law 43/2003, 84/2004 and 18/2010 - hereinafter: the Law ), the tax treatment of expenditures for donations and sponsorship in respect of the recognition of costs on that basis for the purposes of income tax is governed by the provisions of Article 15 of the Act.
