1 “PhD in Information and Communication Technology”
University of Banja Luka Faculty of Electrical Engineering “PhD in Information and Communication Technology”

2 Introduction History Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE) is the oldest Faculty of the University of Banja Luka, growing from Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, founded in 1962, as the Department of the Technical Faculty of Banja Luka. In 1970s the need for electrical engineers increased and the Department was separated from the Technical Faculty, establishing the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in 1975. At the beginning, there were the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications and Department of Computer Science and Automatics. Since 1995 there has been the Department of Power Engineering also.

3 Introduction History Each year, students received a Diploma Engineer degree at the FEE, and there have been about 2000 students who graduated so far. In addition to undergraduate programs, the FEE also offers programs at Master of Science and Doctoral (Ph.D.) level. Postgraduate studies are organized for specialized areas depending on student interests. For the first time postgraduate studies were organized in 1971/72.

4 Introduction Integration of the University
Since June 2007, University of Banja Luka is an integrated university. The FEE as well as others faculties joined the University. University of Banja Luka has now 16 faculties, 53 study programs, with about students.

5 Introduction ECTS based study programs
The FEE had started with ECTS based I cycle (8 semesters) study programs in academic 2004/05 year and with II cycle (2 semesters) study programs in academic 2008/09 year: 1. Study program for computer science and informatics 2. Study program for electronics and telecommunications 3. Study program for power engineering and industrial systems III cycle study program PhD in Information and Communication Technology started in 2009/2010 academic year.

6 PhD in Information and Communication Technology (PhD in ICT)
Implemented by: University of Banja Luka, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Paderborn, International Graduate School of Dynamic Intelligent Systems, as a twinning institution Co-founded by: Degree Development Structure (DDS) WUS Austria, Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and ERP-Funds ( “Austrian Support to Higher Education in Bosnia and Herzegovina 2008 – 2011”)

7 PhD in ICT Mission of the programme
PhD in Information and Communication Technology, addressing the 3rd degree (Doctoral) study in the scientific field of ICT, would enable students to earn highest academic degree - Ph.D. Through this program, which should be ended with doctoral dissertation, the students are expected to become researchers and experts in the field of ICT, capable to give original contribution to scholarship or scientific knowledge, to exemplify the highest standards in the field of ICT and to be of lasting value to the intellectual community.

8 PhD in ICT Mission of the programme
There's a major lack of the researchers and experts with Ph.D. degree in the field of ICT in Bosnia and Herzegovina, for example for university professor positions, consultants or research and development leaders in government departments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and in the private sector. The aim of this 3rd degree program is to strengthen the research potential and to overcome the gap between the existing state and actual needs.

9 PhD in ICT Structure of the programme
By the law in Bosnia and Herzegovina doctoral study programs last 3 years (6 semesters) and are assigned with 180 ECTS. During the first and second semester students will be prepared for the final thesis through selected modules and courses (42 ECTS) and research (12 ECTS).

10 PhD in ICT Structure of the programme
In the first three semesters, each student have to choose a topic of dissertation and prepare the thesis proposal. The thesis proposal should be delivered up to 18 months after starting the programme. The next three semesters students research closely related to the final thesis and in the last semester have to complete the final thesis (dissertation). Final thesis has to present original contribution to knowledge in the chosen research area. Each student receive individual guidance by a mentor. Beyond the regular mentorships, student's progress are monitored by a PhD committee.

PhD in ICT Implementation of the programme International Graduate School for Dynamic Intelligent Systems coordinate preparing the Curriculum for accreditation by ASIIN professors specializations in the field of ICT at universities of Paderborn and Mälardalen professors education in centres of ICT competence for research based on accepting key competence (research management, knowledge management) professors training in the field of reform on graduation and research at an European university

21 International Graduate School for Dynamic Intelligent Systems
PhD in ICT Implementation of the programme International Graduate School for Dynamic Intelligent Systems coordinate establishing joined research teams (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Paderborn, University of Mälerdalen) that will serve as base for research at doctoral studies and the planed ICT center of competence at Faculty of Electrical Engineering supported by stakeholders and government joint writing and publishing articles and books publishing results of joined research at conferences and periodicals

22 PhD in ICT Implementation of the programme This programme
internationalize the academic offer regarding education introduce more research practice at universities in B&H open the possibility for exchange modules/courses that will be automatically recognized for students of the partner institution leads to the integration B&H universities into the EU education and research area

23 PhD in ICT Future activities
The PhD program established through this project should be continued for at least three academic cycles starting from the 2009/2010. The signing of the contract between project partners adds new possibilities of cooperation in the field of graduation and research in engineering science and permanent modernization of doctoral studies. The planned joined activities in the future would result in internationalization in the fields of academic education and research in Bosnia and Herzegovina, joint degree programs, as well as improvements and assurance of quality regarding the program of studies for postgraduate students.

24 Thank you for your attention!
PhD in ICT Future activities The foundation and establishment of an alliance for the Western Balkan with regard to the reform on doctoral programs and research in engineering and technology.
