The study program "Teacher Informatics" enables the development of specific psychological and value characteristics of graduates that are important for the development of their careers, but also their overall personality:
- Encouraging students to develop independence and self-confidence in their own knowledge, awareness of their qualities, ways of presenting themselves.
- Nurturing high academic values, such as integrity, collective spirit, freedom of opinion, responsibility, tolerance, objectivity, personal examples and demanding of one's achievements.
The most general generic competencies at the level of each of the cycles of education, which must be possessed by every graduate regardless of the study program or. institution in which he completed his higher education, are defined:
- Dublin descriptors, which represent a set of criteria for students' expected achievement and ability to distinguish between different cycles of education, proposed by the Joint Quality Initiative (JQI), and which are accepted as the basis for describing each cycle of education in ministerial meeting in Bergen in May 2005.
- The General Framework for Qualifications in European Higher Education (EQF for HE), adopted at the ministerial meeting in Bergen in May 2005.
These competencies are categorized as instrumental, interpersonal and systemic:
- Instrumental competencies include:
- Cognitive abilities, understanding and manipulation of ideas and thoughts.
- Methodological abilities of communication with the environment: organizing time and learning strategies, making decisions or solving problems.
- Technological abilities related to the use of technological means, computers and the application of information management skills.

The staffing needs in the field of "teacher" informatics are huge. The current nomenclature of occupations institutionally defines the occupation " Professor of Informatics ". The social neglect of this profession is further complicated by the high demands of professional qualification characterized by interdisciplinary knowledge and equal mastery of knowledge and complex skills and techniques of practical work on computer and network systems.
In this value system, research activities related to the informatization of the entire pedagogical process, the introduction of "distance learning" ( distance learning ), "open learning" ( open learning ) and "virtual studies" ( virtual studies ), and the implementation of modern information communication technologies in everyday teaching.
SPECIFIC COMPETENCIES The study of teacher informatics is oriented towards the acquisition of teaching, organizational and specific professional competencies by students that enable them to lead the teaching process for the subject "Informatics" in different school years of primary and secondary schools, introduction of information technologies in other curriculum subjects, and implementation computer, network and software technologies in the information system of the school as a whole. Students will be able to in their working environments introduce systems of "distance learning" (distance learning) systems "open learning" (open learning), "virtual studio" (virtual studies) and "lifelong learning" (life-long learning) .
They will be able to apply their basic competencies built during their studies in new areas of education (other education, professional development, etc.) and to meet the needs and expectations of different target groups. They will be able to apply and develop concepts that meet the needs of emancipation of various social groups, including people with special needs.
By mastering the curriculum, students acquire not only appropriate knowledge related to the theoretical understanding of the subject, but also specific skills or abilities and competencies related to its practical and operational application, and skills necessary for professional qualification of students.
The modern world is entering the information civilization in which the most important resources are information and means for the acquisition, transmission, processing and dissemination of information. Media become information services and the Internet becomes a universal multimedia mega-medium of exchange and placement of information in an interactive form.
Therefore, the general goals of the study program "Business Informatics" as a kind of information technology engineering that is applied primarily in the business process, to ensure the transfer of applicable and current knowledge in the field of information technology and business and produce new generation IT professionals trained to successfully enter a dynamic market. information technology.
The basic general mission of the Faculty of Information Technology is:
- Establishment of a competent higher education institution based on the curricula of modern computer, network and communication technologies, whose main goal is to offer deep and operational knowledge in the scientific fields of computer science, information technology, information systems, computer engineering, as well as skills in practical applications of modern management.
- Implementing a modern didactic approach through a dialogue-system and mentoring-supported study process, which combines undergraduate studies with the practical engagement of students in the field and in student research papers.
Given the exceptional dynamics in the scientific fields covering computer science and information technology, and given the great competitiveness of the information technology market, the primary task of the study program of business informatics (information technology engineering) is to train students for further collaborative and independent acquisition of knowledge. aspect of teaching contents, as well as through a specific interdisciplinary and action approach in the elaboration of those contents.
The educational goal is the adoption of modules of academic and general educational knowledge from disciplines that enable understanding and technical communication with other technical professions and affirm the multidisciplinarity of work teams, to which computer scientists will necessarily be instructed in the jobs they will work on.
Also the adoption of scientific and professional knowledge in computer science that ensures their application in practice, ie. adoption of professional-applied knowledge from information technologies that enable the transfer of knowledge in work and technological processes.
