University of Tuzla (UNTZ) is a public university in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in the city of Tuzla. It was founded in 1958 and has been educating students ever since. It officially became a university in 1976. nowadays, it is one of the major higher education institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Around 14,000 students are currently enrolled in programmes at UNTZ. Around 500 academic staff and 200 administrative staff are on site, to make sure that students are well looked after. In 2018, the University of Tuzla is celebrating its 38th anniversary. The school has committed itself to offer courses specifically adapted to the students’ needs. Due to this, the school is convinced that students get the best education possible. Graduates of UNTZ are well-rounded individuals who possess the skills and means to become successful in their professional and personal life. The University of Tuzla offers degree programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The higher education institution provides its students with an international and welcoming learning environment. The campus is made up of several faculties: Academy of Performing Arts, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, Faculty of Mining, Geology and Civil Engineering, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Faculty of Philosophy, Faculty of Pharmacy, as well as the Faculty of Physical Education and Sports. The university also places special value on integration and extracurricular activities. Therefore, the school established a Basketball club (UKK Student) which regularly competes in tournaments. The university also wants its students to get the chance to explore other countries during their studies, hence the participation in ERASMUS programmes. The University of Tuzla offers a scholarship, as well, in order to present everyone with the opportunity to follow their academic dreams.
I like multinationality in this University. I expect that in the next academic year I will finish my studies and I will begin to enter the labor market slowly because in our country there is not a good prospect for this profession but I believe that good success can be achieved through the different acquaintances gained during the academic obligations. __View more
What should I say about my Uni? It’s not honey and milk and it is not all the way bad. Why is not bad to the bone? Because there are few Faculties that are working their ass off for their students, one example is Faculty of Electrical Engineering. Even them have their problems, and when I say that I mean they have a lot of problems but at least they are doing something better than any other part of Uni.
Like my title says, ancient times requires ancient technologies, and this is not only about tech we are using for our lab work or in our classes, its about professors too. There is a lot of old professors who are not willing to make their lectures interesting to their audience and they are ignoring everything that students want or they think it is better. We are still in 1970’s with any organization of classes, exams, lab works and many others.
Students from Med Faculty are working on bodies where they can’t see anything and can’t learn anything. People from Faculty of Electrical Engineering don’t have normal PC’s to work on and I shouldn’t mention other equipment from Yugoslavia.
The thing is, there are many professors and assistants that are willing to help students in times of need, but others are just there to put their presentation on a projector and try to “educate” students about their subject, which is not working well. After that, don’t even mail them, call them or let them know you need something. The big part of this is that many of them are still thinking that students are there because of them and not that they are there because of students. If you look at statistics you can see that every year there is less and less people on this public University while students are going on private University where things are quite better then here.
At the end, probably one of the worst reasons for such a bad rate for this Uni is politics. Because of the really complex organization of our government and many subsections of it, there are Cantons and one of them, Tuzla Canton, is where University of Tuzla takes place. With many nationalistic parties in politics which are bad for the country itself, University is occupied with people who don’t know to work their job and they are there only because they are a member of that politic party. So, in few words, politics are present on University of Tuzla even tho by the Statute of UNTZ they shouldn’t be. Like many things in this country this one is falling down with everything else and it is because the government with bought diploma’s from private Universities can decide what is the best option for public University and what is not.
Why I didn’t go to EU and study there? Because I was young and stupid.View more
There is plenty of room for this University to be more advanced but the mentality of people, unfortunately, isn’t changing at that is the biggest problem. Students don’t have enough time and space to do some of the scientific research work and they are just focused on learning from a thousand pages book without realising how stuff works in real life.View more
Currently I am at my final year at Electrical Engineering on the University of Tuzla. These three and a half years have gone by so fast that it’s practically unbelievable and I am feelling a bit sad that it’s almost over, because I can say that this so far the best part of my life. I made so many friendships for which I am sure will last for a lifetime, so many memories that I love to look back at and gained so much knowledge that will sure help with my future career. Also I am in a non-government organisation where I was a part of a organisation teams for a few projects where I learnt many soft skills besides the hard skills that are related to my field of study.
When I first started college, I was afraid that I won’t be able to handle all of this and I have to be honest, the first year was really hard, it is not easy to transition from high school to college especially if you have nobody by your side. But as days and weeks went by, we all started to get to know each other and it was easier, because we had each other and we could help one another when stuck.
On the second year, we were separated each on their course, mine is Automatics and Robotics and that is were the real work actually started. We had a few practical exercises where we could actually see a code come to life.
There are about 25 people on my course and on the second year we really connected and we are like a little family. We spend breaks together, help each other, laugh, play games and make memories.
On the third year everything I have learnt until then finally made sense. Every lecture that I had, I understood what the professor was saying and I was able to answer their questions and make myself memorable. All the time I was like “Hey, I get this” or “I know about this”. It really feels awesome to be able to connect all the dots.
On my fourth and final year, well I can say that we have a good connection with our professors and they really show appreciation for people who are hard-working and now I am sure that everything I have done so far and will do is going to pay off. We have a lot of practical exercises which I love because that is when you can see what you are learning, you are able to programm a car to drive or a robotic hand to move.
Also I had the opportunity to attend a training school with other professors from european Universities and that is were I made sure that University of Tuzla and Electrial Engineering Tuzla really gives you all needed knowledge for being a Electrical Engineer and that Tuzla can stand side by side with all the other european cities.
There are times where I have really enjoyed myself and I have made friends with some unforgettable people and created many long lasting memories, but also there have been times where I have felt so low and wanted to quit, but I stuck in and remembered that there is so much more left I have to experience and I look forward to it.View more
Course is much better than I expected. Thing we learn are very good basic for our improvement in future life and work.
I most like classes that are connected to programming, OOP and computer architecture(assembly and kernel code).
I would most definitelly recommend it and I recommend it to all my friends who gain intrest in computer science.
I have been studying for three years in Tuzla and I can say that there have been many ups and downs. When it comes to student life, as well as in everything, it will be the way you do it yourself to be. I consider the University of Tuzla one of the best universities. Of course, there are many things that need to be changed and discussed. Generally, in BiH we have no conditions for acquiring practical knowledge, which I consider to be one of the biggest problems of our University. Regardless, the professors are expert and how much they are able to work to transfer knowledge. Certainly this is the University that is the most compelling theory. In essence, there’s nothing else to do, because we do not have an adequate lab. 😏 And that is a big problem, especially for us energetic, much more important than dry theory.View more
If im being honest the UNTZ is missing a lot of things, but it also gets a lot of things right. The good thing about this university is the professors. The quality of the lectures is mostly on a very high level, but like with anything theres exceptions. Here you will find employees who will do anything to transfer their knowledge to you and are open to any kind of discussion and/or suggestions. But on the other side there are some who are there just because it’s their job, and those are the lectures that lack quality. The other low side is the laboratories, there are very few of them, and they are very poorly equipped. They don’t require a lot of funding to get to an appropriate level that would satisfy the need of every student, it’s just that no one is working on fixing it. All in all you will be satisfied with the knowledge you are leaving this university with and should have no problems in your future workplace.View more
The faculties of the University are not located in the same place, within the campus, but are in different parts of the city. However, most are located in the center which is a benefit for students. The University of Tuzla offers many faculties, and faculties have many directions, so at the University of Tuzla it is possible to acquire knowledge from almost all prospective areas. The best side of the University of Tuzla is professors, who are also the largest experts in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a drawback I would point out the lack of material resources at all faculties. Laboratories are not sufficiently equipped to diminish the quality of learning.View more
If someone says everything is honey and milk, it is not, it can’t be, but I believe nowhere is. A lot of professors are really friendly and forthcoming if you have any questions. But there are some professors that are arrogant to the bone. The lectures can be interesting, and some professors try really hard to make that happen, but mostly they don’t care and just try to put out as much stuff as they can. (quantity over quality I guess)
The laboratories are underequipped and the lack of practical work is really big. There are no chances of having a summer practice in any firm that faculty would organise or offer to the students.
One of the good things is that professors don’t make you buy some specific books to pass an exam (which I heard is common in some other faculties)
