All students activities are rated according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, ECTS), so that each semester is awarded 30 ECTS credits. The basic applied studies last for three years, that is, six semesters 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-semester courses. Students activities during the semester (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: January, February, June, 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 outcomesAutomation and Vehicle Control Systems study program aims to enable students to use and implement advanced technologies for the design, implementation, testing, exploitation and maintenance of processes and systems in industry and vehicles. The objectives of the study program Automation and Vehicle Control Systems are:
- to consistently apply European and world standards to high-quality studies in the field of automation and vehicle control systems;
- that the educational process is conducted according to the study program and teaching methods that are constantly innovating;
- that students master the most current knowledge and skills in this field, to become creative workers and thus gain a secure basis for successful employment.
By mastering the study program Automation and Vehicle Control Systems students acquire general and subject specific skills:
- to follow and apply novelties in the profession (acquiring knowledge from general educational subjects and contemporary fields of automation and computing enable the success of the field of modern automation and computer-controlled processes as well as vehicle control systems);
- to develop knowledge and skills in the use of knowledge (training for design, implementation and maintenance of processes and automation systems);
- to use information and communication technology in mastering knowledge from the appropriate field (use of knowledge of the use of computer technology and devices, with general and specific application software, standards, rules and standards in localization and elimination of failures, as well as working principles and requirements of various electro- and mechanical systems in processes and vehicles);
- to design and organize work processes, to design and make operational decisions on the scope, justification and monitoring of the operations of small and medium sized enterprises, car dealerships, specialized services, etc.;
- to participate in team work and to be a full member of the professional and business team;
- to continue further training in specialist studies.
Continuation of studies
After completing basic applied studies, a student can enrol in specialist applied studies or master applied studies.
