All student activities are scored according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Each year carries 60 ECTS credits. The basic applied studies last for three years (six semesters) and carry 180 ECTS credits. The studies are realized in the form of class-based teaching (face-to-face) in the Serbian language. The study program is realized within the field of Technical and Technological Sciences. The subfield is Electrical and Computer Engineering.
After completing basic applied studies, a student acquires the title of Bachelor of Applied Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (BASc in ECE). According to the National Framework of Qualifications of the Republic of Serbia (NFQS), the completion of basic applied studies leads to the sixth level; sub-level one (level 6.1). The requirement for acquiring this level is previously achieved level 4 of NFQS and passed general, professional, or artistic graduation.
Teaching and exams
Classes are held in a one-semester subject pattern. Student activities during the semester (pre-examination obligations), such as colloquiums, seminar papers, tests, and other activities are scored. The proportion of the number of points obtained in the pre-examination obligations and on the exam is determined for each subject individually, whereby the pre-examination obligations participate with at least 30 and up to 50 points. The final exams are taken at the School in the appropriate exam terms, which are: January, April, June, September, and October. By fulfilling the pre-examination obligations and taking the exam, the student can achieve a maximum of 100 points, whereby 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
The study program Electrical Engineering in Traffic aims to enable students to perform jobs in the field of electrical engineering, electronics, and new computer technologies in railway traffic.
The goals of the study program Electrical Engineering in Traffic are to:
- transfer knowledge and skills in the field of telecommunications, power plants, signaling and safety devices, and new computer technologies in railway traffic;
- to integrate basic technical and computer information knowledge and in accordance with the needs of production and service activities in architecture;
- create a basis for further development of creative abilities and knowledge necessary for work, monitoring of innovations in the given field;
- train students for teamwork and work in a highly multidisciplinary railway environment.
By mastering Electrical Engineering in Traffic study program, the student acquires general and subject-specific skills:
- to master general and specific knowledge in the field of traffic engineering (telecommunications, signaling and safety, energy systems and computer systems specific to railways);
- to master and apply the latest knowledge, skills, and abilities in the implementation and maintenance of devices and systems in the field of telecommunications, signaling and security systems, energy systems, and new computer technologies on the railway;
- o acquire the basis for further training and practical work in the profession, as well as to transfer this knowledge in its environment to workers of lower qualifications;
- to know and apply the principles of environmental protection, safety at work, and protection of means and devices in a safety-demanding railway environment.
Continuation of studies
After completing basic applied studies, a student can enroll in specialist applied studies or master applied studies within higher education institutions in applied studies. Master applied studies of Electrical Engineering in Traffic is organized within the Railway School of Applied Studies
