As a high school student, he won the first place at the competition in Mathematics in Montenegro, and a gold medal in a Yugoslav festival of young technicians.

He studied electrical engineering at the University of Montenegro from 1978 to 1982. During the studies he participated two times at the Meeting of Electrical Engineering Students of Yugoslavia, winning both times the fist place at the competition in Mathematics. He was awarded the gold plaque from the University of Montenegro as the best student graduating in 1982. The same year he was named as the best student in Montenegro.

Stankovic has finished master studies in communications in 1984 at the University of Belgrade. As a Fulbright grantee in 1984/85 we was at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, USA, where he passed all doctoral exams and was appointed as a teaching instructor. He defended Ph.D. thesis at the University of Montenegro in the field of electromagnetic waves propagation in 1988.
