Information Technology

Need for trained personnel for organizational science derived primarily from the strategic choices of Bosnia and Herzegovina for the functioning and development of information technology based on a high international level. It is necessary to include Bosnia and Herzegovina in the international division of labor and integration and into international integration and using the comparative advantages of geographical position.

Organizational sciences are relatively young scientific discipline that starts systematically studied at some university / university centers between I. and World War II, and are experiencing a full development in the second half of the 20th century and have significantly contributed to the development of economy and society in general.

Intensive development of organizational science in the field of information technology defined in areas conditioned the effectiveness and progress of business systems. This prompted the formation of a large number of institutions of higher education in this field. In the former state, the first idea for a formal education in the field of information science has appeared more than fifty years. As a result of these initiatives and the evident need for educated professionals who will lead the company and be carriers of development and change, 1969 was made a decision on the establishment of the Faculty of Organizational Sciences in Belgrade. In January1971 the decision of the Council of the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Organizational Sciences became a member of the University.

Past forty years the curriculum in colleges have changed in line with the latest achievements of science and technology and adapting to the needs of the economy and society. Today, the curriculum is designed on the model of the most famous universities / colleges and universities in the world. Organization Science studies program orientation reflects modern trends of higher education, scientific research and economic development. The study will develop in the direction of developing into a college of education in the field of information systems and technologies.

When developing the curriculum of Information Technology studies, we have achieved goals of agreeing with modern scientific methods, practices and requirements of the principles of the Bologna process.

Organization Science studies will intensively work on the development of international cooperation, which will be operated through a joint degree programs, exchange of students, staff and faculty, joint research and development projects, and participation in symposia and conferences.

Knowledge is a factor of competitiveness in the 21st century and it is our advantage and opportunity to move forward. Programming and development strategies of Information Technology Studies in practice confirmed as successful and creative scholarship, research potential of teachers and staff are the guarantee that we will continue to develop successfully on the satisfaction of the community and users of our services.

Keeping this in mind, the goal of undergraduate study of Information Technologies is a research and exploring the theoretical, technical- technological and practical solutions based on information technologies and systems.

The program is comparable to the programs of foreign universities, especially those from the European Union and neighboring countries. Program structure and models that are offered are comparable and equivalent to some European universities of which are listed:
Fakultät für Elektrotechnik, Informatik und Mathematik, Paderborn
Faculty of Organizational Sciences, Belgrade
Information Science, University of Zagreb, Varaždin

For undergraduate study of Information Technology there is great interest of business subjects and students from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The program is open and adapted for student mobility, free movement of students, access to study and learning, necessary services and the free exchange of teachers and researching in accordance with the Bologna process. Programs are comparable with similar programs from abroad and are expressed in ECTS credits with the possibility of performing a part of the English language.

Study of Organizational Sciences Program, direction study of Information Technology course is oriented towards the requirements of the professional profile of IT engineers. Study provides technical, technological and organizational background needed to conduct information processes.

Information Technology

Undergraduate program of Information Technology has a fundamental goal of quality education of students who will be able to successfully work on planning, designing, construction and maintenance of information systems in the private and public sectors.

The structure and content of the program allows the student to gain knowledge and skills to solve complex problems in bachelor's or engineer high-level. The level of knowledge and understanding that students acquire is sufficient to enable the professional engineering work and solve complex problems in practice. Through a general knowledge of information systems and technology, the user is able to develop software support, implementation of solutions, efficient use of computers at the level of operating systems and office applications, and a database formatting.

The need for personnel of indicated profile is evident from the comparative analysis of the current state of the number and quality of personnel who work on similar tasks in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the developed countries that can serve as an example. The fact that the European Union is currently missing about 400 000 IT professionals illustrates the justification of this study at the regional level.

The proposed program of study is linking the system approach and methods with basic engineering skills in the domain of information systems and technology. Technology is viewed in a broader sense to include integral monitoring of technical solutions (hardware, software, etc.), organization and management. Understanding and modeling the organizational processes and the necessary IT support provides the basis for a successful business and action.

Acquired title after graduation

After completing undergraduate studies, which lasts for three academic years (6 semesters), upon graduation, graduate acquires a total of 180 ECTS credits baccalaureus of Information Technology.

After completing undergraduate studies, which lasts four academic years (8 semesters), upon graduation, graduate acquires a total of 240 ECTS credits title: Bachelor of Information Technology.

Technical names will be aligned with the professional titles after his passing.
