Bachelor study programme Computing develops competencies to analyze and solve various engineering problems, to work as an efficient member of a team, and to contribute to the design of systems and processes in the area of computing. The fundamental knowledge of mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering is backed up with the usage of contemporary computer tools.
The principal object of study in Computing is the computer as a universal data processing machine, together with the methods of its application in diverse areas. Computing encompasses the theory, methods of analysis and synthesis, design and construction, application, and operation of computer systems. High emphasis is placed on practical skills and early career development during the study. While the first two years of study focus to teach students a common set of skills required by an engineer in the field of computing through a carefully prepared set of required courses, the last year of study offer a large selection of elective courses that will give students an opportunity to gain specific knowledge and competencies in the fields of:
If they wish to further broaden their expertise in specific fields, after finishing Bachelor study programme students will be well prepared to enrol master study programmes in computing at any university worldwide, including the possibility to continue their education by taking Master study programme at FER.
The study programme also puts a high emphasis on the development of soft engineering skills through the set of transversal courses, which complement basic engineering education with an additional set of skills that are necessary to form an engineer as a complete person.
A visual guide to the study programme is presented below. The numbers in rows represent academic semesters (two semesters per year, a total of three years). Each semester has a predefined set of courses (required, elective, project, transversal) with a total count of 30 ECTS points per semester.
The visual guide shows required courses only. For a full list of elective and transversal courses please visit the study programme page.
FER alumni are highly appreciated professionals not only in Croatia but also in high-tech companies in different sectors worldwide. FER actively cooperates with more than 450 companies, including some of the most significant high tech companies from Croatia but also all over the world. Both students and companies benefit from this network that provides an opportunity to connect the best matching talents with industry needs even before students finish their studies.
Students are offered early career guidance through the services of Career Center, which helps students to connect with employers through the organization of various networking events, such as Job Fair and Career Speed Dating.
Students are highly encouraged to participate in an internship programme to gain a competitive edge on the labour market while still studying.
As a faculty with traditionally highly appreciated research components on an international level, students can also take a part in more than 250 international and national R&D projects, both scientific research and industry collaboration projects, that run at FER every year.
For students with startup aspirations, a student-friendly startup incubator is a right place to visit and explore new horizons.
To meet the entry requirements for bachelor's level studies, all students must fulfill the following requirements:
General requirement: A successfully completed upper secondary (high school) education
English language requirement: Documented proficiency in English
Specific requirement: Documented knowledge in Mathematics - intermediate level (the equivalent of Croatian State Matura exam from Mathematics - Higher/Extended level (A)).
More detailed information about meeting admission requirements and application procedure are available here.
Formal application procedures and online enrolment application are available here. Please note that we have three submission deadlines:
Early bird – due 21 May 202
Regular – due 23 July 202
Last call – due 17 September 2021
We strongly recommend completing and submitting your application by Early bird or Regular deadlines.
The Last call deadline is intended for students who are unable to apply by the Regular deadline due to administrative reasons (such as differences in school system calendars or delays in obtaining academic records) or due to extraordinary circumstances (such as natural disaster or health-related issues).
