The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Applied Studies (VISER)

The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Applied Studies, VISER, is the public higher education institution with more then 2500 students attending courses in seven different specializations at the first level of higher education and 5 different specializations at the second level of higher education of applied studies. The School has particularly long tradition, as well as, well known reputation in the filed of applied studies in Telecommunications, Audio and Video Technologies and Computer Engineering. It is equipped with 24 different laboratories among which stand out Modern radiotone studio and HDTV studio. The basic and specialized professional studies are tailored to industry needs and labour market demands. The constant modernization of study programmes curricula is underway motivated by changes in industry, technology and labour market. The School has been active in a number of projects concerned with modernization of study programs, in particular it was the coordinator of very successful project in the field of digital television and multimedia “Innovation and Implementation of the Curriculum Vocational Studies in the Field of Digital Television and Multimedia” (Project 517022-TEMPUS-1-2011-1-RS-TEMPUS- JPCR) and is currently project partner in the project “Development of higher education and society by creating a collaborative environment in the field of arts and media through regional student partnership in production of audio/video content”( Project 544108-TEMPUS-1-2013-1-RS-TEMPUS-JPHES ).

Through TEMPUS curriculum innovation project “Innovation and Implementation of the Curriculum Vocational Studies in the Field of Digital Television and Multimedia” VISER has established very successful one year specialized study programme Multimedia and Digital Television. This programme has been made specific and yet it has been designed in such a way that it can be modularly upgraded and expanded. Only recently the Master of applied studies degree has been introduced by the Educational law in Republic of Serbia. The role of VISER in this project will be to pass on experience with specialized studies to other partners and to further build on the specialized study programme and create Module Digital Broadcasting Technologies within Master programme of applied studies. The Module will be a modern combination of new technologies, bringing together, Telecommunications, Audio and Video Technologies and Computer Engineering.
