Admela Jukan ist Professorin und Lehrstuhlinhaberin im Fachbereich für Kommunikationsnetze an der Technischen Universität Carolo-Wilhemina zu Braunschweig. Vor dieser Position war sie Dozentin am Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), der University of Illinois at Urbana Champain (UIUC) und Georgia Tech (GaTech). In der Zeit von 1999 bis 2000 war sie als eingeladene Gastwissenschaftlerin an den Bell Labs, Holmdel, NJ tätig, und in 2015 an MIT. Von 2002 bis 2004 war sie als Programmdirektorin in der Computer- und Netzwerksystemforschung bei der National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, Virginia, beschäftigt.

Prof. Dr. techn. Admela Jukan erhielt ihren Abschluss als Dr. techn. (mit Auszeichung) in Elektrotechnik und Informatik an der Technischen Universität Wien (sowie die Habilitation), den M.Sc. Abschluss in Information Technologies von der Politecnico di Milano, Italien, und ihr Dipl.-Ing. Abschluss von der Fakultät Elektrotehnike i Racunarstva (FER), in Zagreb, Kroatien.


Die Forschungsgruppe von Prof. Dr. techn. Jukan ist in der Forschung in Bereichen der Theorie und Praxis der Signalisierung, Steuerung und Verwaltung in informationstechnischen vernetzten Systemen der nächsten Generation, sowie der Signalgebung Plattformen und Leistungsbewertung sehr aktiv. Die Interessen liegen in der Zusammenarbeit innerhalb des multidisziplinären Forschungsteams in der Ingenieurwissenschaften, sowie in der Anwendung hoher Breitbandkommunikation und informationstechnischen Technologien in anderen Disziplinen.
