7 GOLDEN RULES

Rule 1/ Accreditation

Before you make the final decision it is very important that you are entirely sure that the University i.e. the Faculty you decided to enroll is accredited. The Commission for Accreditation and Quality Assurance founded by the National Higher Education Council (www.kapk.org) published a document “A guide through accredited programmes of study at higher education institutions in the Republic of Serbia”, where you can see which universities i.e. which faculties have received accreditation. Accreditation is a process which establishes whether a higher education institution meets the standards for conducting study-related activities, i.e. it makes sure that programmes of study are in accordance with the standards. Aside from the process of accreditation, the Ministry of education and science checks the working conditions of the faculty and issues a license. It is of prime importance that the faculty you wish to enroll possesses the Accreditation assurance and license.

RULE 2/ FACULTY WEBSITE

Each faculty has its own website where you are able to find a lot of useful information that may be of help when choosing a faculty. Look into the structure of the study programmes, i.e. the courses studied at the individual study programmes and make sure they meet the requirements of your future career. Look into the structure of the teaching staff and associates that lecture at the higher education institution. Carefully read over the news posted on the website and make sure they are up-to-date and diverse. Check whether the website has rulebooks and study instructions, as well as other recommendations that can assure you that the faculty treats its students responsibly and professionally.

RULE 3/ VISIT THE FACULTY

You should never make the final choice before visiting the faculty you want to enroll. No matter how well you think you know the faculty you decided to study, you can find a lot by spending several hours at the premises of the faculty, the choice of which your entire life may depend upon. You are advised to bring along a family member, because you may later exchange experiences with him or her. Singidunum University has an “Open door” policy, aimed at receiving new students, which is why you are advised to schedule your appointment in advance. During the visit you will have the opportunity to distinguish between different faculties and only then will you be able to know what the best choice for you is.

RULE 4/ QUALITY

Sometimes we make a choice of faculty solely on the basis of prejudice, without having checked them against reality. For example if the short-list of the faculties includes those that either your parents or somebody you know attended, you are advised to check how much things have changed since that time, and see whether, once great faculties, have kept abreast of the times and if they apply modern working methods. If the answer is NO, then it is up to you to choose the faculty that can prepare you for the future, provides practice, in addition to theoretical offers hands-on knowledge, and also motivates you to learn at least two foreign languages, helps you to build up your career and eventually find employment. In addition, inquire about the information system and how administration is organized, whether regular office hours are held and if they organize additional classes. The quality of Singidunum University as the winner of the Brand Leader award 2012 was recognized and assessed by students, partners, business and academic community, and confirmed by the results of independent research. Choose QUALITY!

RULE 5/ TUITION

It is important to check what is included in the price of tuition at some faculties, so that they can plan in advance. At Singidunum University the cost of tuition includes textbooks while trust is also built in such way that the price of tuition remains unchanged from the beginning until the end of studies.

RULE 6/ RESEARCH

Conduct research, ask questions, check and make sure that the reality is in accordance with what you think. You will hear many people say that at that faculty “nobody studies”, “it’s too hard”, “it’s too expensive” etc. without them actually being familiar with the facts. Don’t accept such generalizations without any proof. It’s very important to inquire about the experiences of students who currently attend this faculty. Look for “a student advisor” at Singidunum University and he will help you find answers to all the questions related to your student life.

RULE 7/ MAKE A DECISION

After you have explored all options of good-quality education it is time to make a decision. It is important to enroll the faculty which is aware that its teaching staff are partly responsible for your future. The university’s aim should be your acquisition of knowledge and hands-on skills that will enable you to make and achieve great plans.

WHY ARE THESE PROGRAMMES IMPORTANT?

Electrical engineering and computing
There is an increasing need for quality management staff that specialize in managing all production and services sectors. In addition to a good understanding of production and technology, success in business also necessitates excellent knowledge of software tools and modern programmes. The Technical Faculty of Singidunum University offers the aforementioned study programmes, which coupled with the teaching staff capacitate future engineers for conducting managerial jobs at all company levels, using the latest software packages. The purpose of the Electrical Engineering and Computing study programme is to educate students for the following lines of work: electrical engineering and computing, including software engineering , computing and computer graphics , in accordance with the needs of society (according to the official statistics, Serbia’s revenues in this business field exceed the revenues of some formerly quite lucrative fields. It has been announced that new companies will be set up, which indicates that Serbia currently needs at least 1,000 experts). Nowadays, electrical and computing engineers are required to solve practical problems using algorithms. They are supposed to implement them using preferred programming language and programmable hardware platforms, both for stationary and mobile systems. A dominant trend in programming is the application of Internet technology and web services.

Engineering Management
The purpose of Engineering Management study programme is to educate students for the following line of work: Management Engineer, which includes quality and project management, industrial design, standardization and metrology, accreditation and conformity assessment, various aspects of management, technical diagnostics and maintenance technologies. The study programme provides competencies that are socially justifiable and useful and enable students to choose subjects that are more "turned" to standards and quality or more oriented toward industrial design and planning. Alternatively, students may opt to combine the knowledge of both fields. A student who acquires a degree in Engineering Management is qualified for the jobs of engineer and manager in diverse companies and their organizational units from different segments of industry. Once they have successfully mastered the programme, students are able to solve problems creatively and make decisions in the following fields: engineering processes, operating management, strategic management, knowledge management, quality management, industrial design, database design, decision support systems, intelligent systems design, risk management, financial and commodity exchange in engineering, public administration and local self-government, international organizations whose field of business is either engineering or manufacturing. The unique study programme and the aforementioned options are carried out by establishing and consistently implementing two large groups of overlapping business skills that constitute the basis of the educational system of the integrated University Singidunum. These include professional business skills, i.e. hard and soft skills.
(242)

PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS SKILLS



Expertise
Engineering management helps to successfully run individual projects, enterprises and people in manufacturing, industrial design, engineering, information technologies, telecommunications, transportation, and other industries. Modern organizations are process-oriented and processes must be founded on knowledge and quality defined by the systems of quality and total quality management philosophy (TQM). One of the main objectives is to raise engineers’ awareness that they must continuously work on improving their education and skills in the company. Furthermore they must also learn and apply both general and specific international standards. Another aim of the study programme is to educate professionals capable of teamwork. It aspires to develop communication abilities and skills i.e. the abilities and skills for transferring knowledge and results to associates at work and their publishing. The study program Electrical Engineering and Computing is the first private academic educational program of study at the integrated University Singidunum, where students may acquire a prestigious bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering and Computing. Students are prepared for this highly sought profession in the following three programmes: Computing and Electronics, Software Engineering and Computer Graphics.

Foreign languages
University students, including the Faculty of Technical Science, are required to take up two foreign languages, of which English is mandatory during all four years of studies. In addition to the English language, students can also choose among the following languages: Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and French. Should the need arise, other foreign languages will be introduced.

Computer skills
The basic literacy in contemporary engineering and management entails computer work. Therefore the real needs of the labour market have resulted in harmonizing computer courses with the programme.

Additional student training
Students with high grades in particular courses can get the following certificates: SolidWorks, SAP, TUV, Thuringenn, Cisco, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.
(243)

SOFT SKILLS



Soft skills describe an individual’s ability to, aside from the expertise required for performing a particular job, possess all those emotional, social and spiritual abilities that are a prerequisite for the results of his work to contribute to achieving organization's objectives and meeting his own full potential. Employers, generally, concur about the qualities that employees ought to posses at the start of their career, i.e. upon graduation, in order to achieve expected results at work. Employees named the following among the most important soft skills: professionalism, ethics, oral and written communication, teamwork and collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving skills, commitment, knowledge and use of information technologies, leadership, creativity and innovation, commitment to continuous improvement, as well as social responsibility.

Soft skills are acquired and learned through:

Practical research and business skills
Aware that soft skills constitute an essential part of the knowledge that future employees need to possess and in keeping with a large number of research and employment requirements, Singidunum University has decided to introduce soft skills into its study programme. In this programme, graduates acquire abilities and skills they will need in life and at work. The course provides students with a range of practical skills required for employment. They learn how to achieve visible and significant results at work, develop teamwork and negotiation skills and sales skills. They are taught to understand "body language" and develop effective presentation skills.

Internship
Internship and larger number of classes aimed at capacitating students for practical work are crucial elements for bridging the gap between studying and labour market. This is a prerequisite for efficiently developing students’ basic professional skills. These skills will help them make their future decisions relying on the information, i.e. knowledge, acquired by linking theory and practice. Every year, Singidunum University organizes internships for several hundred students of all integrated faculties. In this way Singidnum University students acquire industry experience and gain cooperation continuity with employers.

Career development centre
Singidunum University Career Development Centre is almost a decade old. Its mission is to help students to further develop and refine their soft skills, study their career options, master career management skills that are distinctive for each line of work and develop skills for effective and efficient job search through specific individual and group counseling programs.
