Description of the institution (including type and status)

The Academy of Applied Technical Studies is the institution of tertiary education, founded in September 2019 by the Government of Republic of Serbia. It was formed by integration of four Higher Education Institutions – College of Professional Studies – Belgrade Polytechnic, College of Professional Engineering Studies ‘’Tehnikum Taurunum’’, College of Professional Technical Studies ‘’Novi Beograd’’ and College of Professional Technical Studies ‘’Požarevac’’. All these HEIs had a long tradition in Higher Education and they successfully passed three cycles of accreditation (in 2007, 2012 and 2017), in accordance with the Law on Higher Education in Serbia.

The Academy is organised in four Units – Section of Belgrade Polytechnic, Section of Computer and Mechanical Engineering, Section of Traffic, Mechanical Engineering and Safety Engineering, and Section of Applied Engineering Sciences. The three Sections of the Academy are located in Belgrade and the Section of Applied Engineering Sciences is located in Požarevac.

The Academy offers professional education in 13 specific areas through 21 undergraduate study programmes, two specialist programmes and 11 programmes at master applied level. Variety of study programmes enables the Academy to respond growing needs of industry and society at all levels.

In addition to good theoretical background that all Sections of the Academy offer to their students, they have built strong cooperation with the industry in terms of student practical placement, internship, training courses, as well as collaboration in many professional activities.

In this moment, the Academy is preparing to establish Quality Management System (QMS) based on the experience that the Belgrade Polytechnic College has had since 2009. The Belgrade Polytechnic College established QMS according to ISO 9001:2008 and certified by YUQS and IQNet in the field of Higher Education (re-certified in 2018 according to ISO 9001:2015). Additionally, the Academy strives to hold the good practice of the Belgrade Polytechnic College in the sense of international cooperation. The Belgrade Polytechnic College obtained the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) in 2018.
