Dean of FERIT
Dean of FERIT, prof. Drago Žagar, said: "I am very pleased to have developed this project of cooperation with Rimac Automobiles successfully for a year or two. I'm glad we continue to develop cooperation with companies and what new companies are coming to Osijek and what new opportunities for our students are opening up. With Rimac Automobiles together we have developed a new study program - automotive computing and communications - these are the future engineers who will find the job at Rimac Automobiles. We are also cooperating with several other companies with whom we have developed a study program. This program I believe that we open space for our students to be easier to enter the labor market. On the other side, through such co-operation projects these companies come to Osijek, open offices, allowing students to stay here to live and work here. We also have a RT-RK company that which is co-owned by the faculty where 80 of our students are currently working. On the other side, through these projects of cooperation these companies come to Osijek, open offices, and give students the opportunity to stay here live and work. I can announce the arrival of another big company in Osijek. We are creating the conditions to prevent the outflow of highly educated people who are the drivers of the future development of this area.” (Translation from Osijek.031)
Students that are thinking about the idea?
Its great news that so many have said that it presents a greater influence for Osijek University as it being first launch with one of Croatia’s leading industries. One also must wonder also from a student’s point of view in Academic studies. The course itself is something to think about as the new technology is evolving quicker than the text books can be written. The other side of things is creating new opportunities for students with the ever changing IT world.
