The study programme of Communication Technologies is realized through two modules: System Engineering and Engineering Management. In the first year of studies, all students have the same courses, and then, in the second year of studies, students choose the module which enables them to acquire knowledge in the branch of communication technologies that best suits their interests.
All courses of the study programme are divided into two groups: compulsory and elective courses. In addition to the fundamental knowledge provided in compulsory courses, the students can contribute to their personal development and create the curriculum of their studies by choosing elective courses according to their preferences, thus gaining practical knowledge and skills needed for performing specific jobs such as network administration, application programming, database management, jobs in electronic media, in particular, technical jobs in a TV studio, as well as in the field of engineering management.
Within this study programme, students acquire the knowledge necessary for high-quality implementation and maintenance of communication equipment using modern technical methods, specialized software tools and cutting-edge network technologies, primarily in the existing landline and mobile telecommunications, computer and sensor networks, and the new generation networks.
Due to the growing popularity of multimedia, students of the study programme of Communication Technologies are instructed to perform in-demand jobs in the field of multimedia telecommunications and other types of electronic media.
The aim of the study programme of Communication Technologies is to train qualified and competent personnel who are committed to professional excellence in: maintaining landline and mobile communication networks, sensor networks, electronic and optical communication devices; management and selling of communication services and devices; use of telecommunication measuring equipment; jobs related to electronic media and technical support in a TV studio.
After completing the study programme of Communication Technologies, a student acquires a professional title with an indication of the title of the first degree of applied studies in the relevant field: Engineer of Electrical and Computer Engineering - Bachelor (appl.).
All students activities are rated according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, ECTS), so that each trimester is awarded 30 ECTS credits. The basic applied studies last for three years, that is, nine trimesters and they award 180 ECTS points. The studies were conducted in the form of class-based teaching (face-to-face) in Serbian. The study program is realized within the field of technical and technological sciences, the field of Electrotechnical and computer engineering.
After completing basic applied studies, a student is appointed a title of engineer of electrical and computer engineering (Bachelor appl.). According to the National Framework of Qualifications of the Republic of Serbia (NFQRS) the completion of basic applied studies is achieved at the sixth level, sub-level one (level 6.1). The condition for acquiring this level is previously achieved level 4 of NFQRS and passed general, professional or artistic graduation.
Teaching and exams
Teaching is performed using one-trimester courses. Students activities during the trimester (pre-examination obligations), such as colloquiums, seminar work and homework, are scored. The ratio of the number of points earned in pre-examination and exams is determined for each subject individually, with pre-examination obligations participating with at least 30 and up to 70 points. The final exams are placed in the School within the appropriate exam terms, which are: December, April, June, July, September and October. By completing preliminary exams and taking the exam, a student can earn a maximum of 100 points, with a score of at least 51 points for a grade of 6, a score of 61 points for a grade of 7, a score of at least 71 points for a grade of 8, a score of at least 81 points for a grade of 9 and a score of at least 91 points for a grade of 10.
Goals and outcomes
