In compliance with the Act on scientific activity and higher education, and based on the obtained accreditation by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport, the University of Applied Sciences Velika Gorica has organized and performed professional undergraduate study programmes in the duration of three years and specialist professional studies in the duration of one and/or two years in the field of technical and social sciences. The University pays full attention to the realization of the Bologna process in performing the professional study programmes, both regarding the quality of classes as well as through placing the student in the centre of the educational process. Since its first days of organizing the University special attention has been paid to the issue of synergy between the number and the type of personnel that are educated at the University and the labour market requirements. The awareness of the significance of the cooperation with the entrepreneurs and transfer of professional knowledge is embedded in our study programmes.
Therefore, apart from theoretical classes a large part of the educational programme at the University includes also practical classes. Thus, during each semester additional exercises have been introduced, and almost the entire fifth semester the students spend in the industry – cooperating institution, company or organization performing their professional practice. Such approach gives the student the possibility to show their employers their quality, and it gives the employer the possibility of viewing the student’s work. This increases the opportunity of their employment upon graduation.
Apart from the higher education study programmes, the University organizes professional and scientific conferences in the field of host activity, organizes and performs the programmes of continuous and life-long learning and improvement (Life Long Learning) of professionals in the field of protection and rescue, crisis management, information technology, ecology, business, pyrotechnology, humanitarian demining, and handling of explosives. All this would not be possible without the cooperation and strong connection and exchange of knowledge with our cooperating institutions – entrepreneurs, institutes, government institutions and organizations and other legal entities.
Further you can find just some of our cooperating institutions with which we are developing and realizing various professional and scientific projects, which include professional practice or whose experts participate in the realization of a part of the practical classes:
