- Information systems
- Computer networks and telecommunications.
Completing the undergraduate studies, regardless of the chosen course, students acquire knowledge of main areas. The first four semesters are common for all three courses, and in the fifth semester students choose one of the offered courses. Completing the studies successfully, students acquire the academic title Bachelor of Information Technology, and the completed course and achieved grades are stated further in the Diploma.Postgraduate academic Studies Specialist's studies Information technologies
Specialist's studies at the Faculty of Information Technology provide students with specialist knowledge from the fields of development, implementation, administration and security of database, computer networks and software.
Specialist’s academic studies last one year and carry 60 ECTS credits. After completing specialist’s studies, a student acquires the degree of Specialist in Information Technology, and the field of specialization is given in the Diploma Supplement.
Modern IT professionals are supposed to have thorough and quality knowledge of all fields of Information Technology and to know how to implement them, and to specialize in specific field. Particular emphasis is put on development, implementation and maintenance of projects which should confirm acquired practical knowledge, foster competition on the market and prove competences in resolving real problems in practice.
Therefore, the curriculum and syllabus are organized as following:
- three mandatory subjects: Advanced Database Systems, Collecting and Analysis of Database Requests and Computer Networks Administration
- three elective subjects: elective subjects depend on the course. A student does not have to choose all subjects from one group, and the course is defined by the majority of selected subjects. In addition to the groups of Information Systems, Computer Telecommunications and Software Systems subjects, there is a general group of subjects which refer to modern and topic spheres of application of IT, such as: E-Government, Human-Computer Interaction and E-Learning
- project: the objective
During a semester, a student may define the topic for their specialist’s work with their mentor, in accordance with the course. The topic is developed within the theoretic expert work and practical implementation.
Postgraduate Master studies Stydu program: Information technology
Research-oriented master's degree program enables students to identify, analyze and understand the scientific and research issues and implement creative solutions to them. The emphasis in the master's degree program is given to an independent study and research work of the candidate, verified through supporting scientific research projects to be finalized in the master thesis.
Duration: 1 year (60 ECTS)
Teaching at Faculty of Information Technology
Teaching is adjusted to current economy needs for qualified IT personnel, so during studies, students may acquire the diplomas of eminent and recognized companies (Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Cambridge, ECDL). These diplomas are guarantee that our students have knowledge equivalent to that provided by recognized world faculties of this field. The lectures are held by native and foreign professors affirmed as leading experts in referent fields.
The number of enrolled students (100); organization of lectures, sessions and seminars in small groups (about 20 students); affirmation of interactive approach in holding single lecturing forms in modernly equipped rooms and laboratories and professional practice continuously held during summer and winter vacations, ensure all necessary conditions for students to acquire knowledge that modern IT experts are expected to have.
Introducing Distance Learning System (DLS), the Faculty of Information Technology has become the first faculty in Montenegro that offered learning from distance. The students who choose distance learning go through the same curriculum and have exams the same way as students who study in classic way, so they all get the same diploma.
