Work placement in the final semester

The Higher Education Technical School of Professional Studies in Novi Sad has included work placements in its study programmes as an important segment. Students at both basic and specialist professional studies spend the last semester at practical work in an enterprise or institution. We strive to make this practice really good, which is achieved through a careful selection of the partner organization and monitoring of students by a teacher-mentor and co-mentor from the organization. The result of the work placement is gaining experience and collecting material for the diploma project, but it also happens that students after finishing their studies get jobs where they have performed work placements.

COOPERATION WITH FOREIGN INSTITUTIONS

The cooperation between the School and similar institutions abroad is an important aspect of our academic life. Therefore, we have established relations with the Technical University of Ostrava (Czech Republic), Polytechnic University of Timisoara (Romania), University of Applied Sciences in Karlovac and College of Occupational Safety and Health from Zagreb (Croatia), among others.

With the Technical University in Zvolen (Slovakia) we prepare joint conferences and projects. In addition, an agreement has been signed on student mobility.

The School has also established a close collaboration with St. Petersburg University of State Fire Service of EMERCOM of the Russian Federation dealing with civil protection in emergency situations.

Every year in January in the ski resort of Kopaonik, our School hosts two international conferences, on Risk and safety engineering and on Knowledge management and informatics. Also, we biennially organise international conferences on Fire and explosion protection and on Safety engineering, which are held in Novi Sad in October.

We participate in international projects having scientific, research or educational character that support student and faculty exchange, like Tempus and Erasmus. Currently, the School is a partner at two Erasmus+ projects:
