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 Traffic and Transportation Engineering.
After completing basic applied studies, a student acquires the title of Bachelor of Applied Science in Traffic and Transportation Engineering (BASc in TTE). 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 Urban Public and Industrial Transportation study program aims to enable students to acquire and perform general and professional knowledge and skills necessary for inclusion in the work processes in the field of urban and suburban public transportation, and industrial transport.
The objectives of the Urban Public and Industrial Transportation study program are:
- to adequately present the topics of application, procedures, methods, and methodologies in the field of industrial and public urban transport;
- to integrate basic theoretical and practical knowledge in accordance with traffic and transportation demands;
- to ensure knowledge and practical skills needed by companies in the field of logistics, industrial, road, public urban, and railway transport;
- to obtain different levels of student ability to plan, organize, monitor, and regulate road traffic and transportation operations in accordance with travel and transportation demands, safety and security requirements;
- to develop student ability to understand road traffic and transportation technics, technology, and operations, as well as the ability to apply the developed knowledge for the needs and benefits of the transportation sector and economy in general;
- to enable a student to teamwork and work in a highly multidisciplinary traffic and transport environment.
By mastering the Urban Public and Industrial Transportation study program, the student acquires general and subject-specific skills and competencies, such as:
- to master basic knowledge in the field of road infrastructure and terminals, vehicles, combined, intermodal and multimodal transport;
- to master basic knowledge and skills in the field of industrial and public road transportation operations planning, especially in the field of urban and suburban public transport;
- to monitor and control transport operations in industrial plant, logistic and distributive centers, storages, etc;
- to plan, monitor, and control road public transportation operations;
- to research, analyze and present quantitative and qualitative parameters of traffic and transportation operations and work, with the special stress on safety and security issues;
- to forecast passenger and freight volumes and flows;
- to solve operational traffic and transportation problems;
- to monitor and analyze the impact of traffic on society and the environment;
- to perform the actions to prevent traffic accidents and incidents;
- to be able to participate in creative teamwork and thereby gain a secure basis for successful employment within enterprises in the transport sector.
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 Traffic and Transportation engineering is organized within the Railway School of Applied Studies
