INSTITUTIONAL PROFILE

The subject-matter core content of the integrated (undergraduate and graduate) university Master's and the postgraduate Doctoral studies is kinesiology.
From the very beginning the mission of the Faculty has been the symbiosis of educational (professional training) and elite research work.

PROGRAMME EMPHASIS

The integrated undergraduate and graduate university study of kinesiology is a study which lasts five years (ten semesters), during which, in the first six semesters, all students attend classes of the same study programme which consists of courses in basic kinesiological disciplines and its interdisciplinary fields. Upon enrolling in the fourth year of their study (VII. semester) each student must select one obligatory module in education, in addition to which they must also choose one module in the field of applied kinesiology, which provides them with an additional qualification after completing their study and enables them to work in the field of a selected sport, physical recreation, kinesitherapy or sports management.

After completing the university study of kinesiology all students acquire the academic title Master of Kinesiology and a qualification for working in educational institutions at all levels of the educational system.

 Pursuant to their selected module in one of the fields of applied kinesiology, students who graduate from the university study of kinesiology also acquire an additional qualification of the same degree which is added to the basic academic title. This provides each graduate at the university study of kinesiology to acquire a double academic title and two professional qualifications of the same level – Master of Kinesiology in:

a) education and

b) a selected sport or

kinesiological recreation or

kinesitheraphy or

sports management.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Masters of kinesiology actualize their knowledge and skills by performing all forms of teaching physical education classes in the educational system of the Republic of Croatia, from the preschool level to the postsecondary education level. They are also qualified to organize and conduct all forms of extracurricular intramural activities, as well as for a variety sporting and sports recreational programmes for their pupils and students in educational institutions, in their city, municipality, county, and at the state level. Within the area of competitive sports they manage sports activities for selected groups of children, teenagers and adult athletes focused on sports achievements and high performance. They also organize physical recreation for youngsters and adults and implement kinesitherapeutic procedures as well as sports programmes for the persons with disabilities. They are qualified to establish scientifically the process of exercising and to assess the expected kinesiological effects produced in physical education teaching, as well as the training effects reflected in improvements of sport performance and achievements. They are also qualified to discuss the health-related issues with regard to the underpinning well-being benefits in the participants of kinesiological (sporting) activities.

RESEARCH ORIENTATION

INSTITUTIONAL PROFILE

The Faculty of Organization and Informatics is a medium-sized faculty situated in Varaždin, a beautiful town in the Northwest Croatia, known for its preserved cultural and natural heritage. It has been the first HE institution that combined information and organizational sciences, and it could be considered as the leading higher education institutions in Croatia to provide education in applied information technology and information sciences.
The Faculty’s primary mission is education and research in applied information sciences. Furthermore, the Faculty of Organization and Informatics has been involved in a number of scientific, R&D and commercial projects. So far, the Faculty has participated in numerous EU funded projects and programmes, bilateral and scientific projects living up to the highest standards of the national research and scientific policy funded by the state, as well as in commercial projects funded by industry/business or public sector institutions. The Faculty has close contacts with the following IT companies: APIS IT, Microsoft Croatia, IBM, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, and more S&M enterprises in the region and abroad. FOI is a co-owner of the Technology Park situated in Varaždin.

STUDY PROGRAMMES

The main aim of the Faculty is to provide the students with first-class education in the field of Information Sciences and Applied ICT in Business. We firmly believe the aim is achievable with a joint effort of both our students and staff.
The Faculty offers a three-year (6-semester) undergraduate course of study, which could be followed by a two-year graduate course of study, after which students can enrol in a postgraduate specialist or doctoral studies.
To educate ICT professionals meeting the demands of the 21st century is a challenge we have accepted with great enthusiasm. Our students are offered up-to-date study programmes that can be matched to the most recent programmes carried out in Western Europe and America. The programmes are supported by innovative learning methods and state-of-the-art computer laboratories, and our students are involved in challenging projects.
At this moment, we offer 8 courses in English on the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as the entire Postgraduate Doctoral Study Programme in Information Sciences to exchange students.

CAREER PROSPECTS

In view of the Faculty’s long tradition of effectively bringing together information and business systems, and in comparison with SFIA (Skills Framework for Information Age) model, which enables the assessment of the needs for informatics professionals, it is assumed that graduates leaving FOI should be able to successfully pursue careers pertaining to the following occupation groups: Organization and Operations Management; IS Strategy, Planning and Management; IS Development and Implementation; IS Services, Consulting and Implementation; Providing Education on using IT.

RESEARCH ORIENTATION

The Faculty aims to develop its scientific and research activities and achieve excellence in the following research fields and topics: ICT application in the private and public sector;  information systems management; organizational design; business process reengineering;  e-government; decision support (systems); e-learning; electronic and mobile business; software engineering; service oriented  architectures; biometrics; quantitative methods for decision making; risk analysis; project management, and strategic planning.
Information sciences and applied ICT are our main fields of research. Information systems (IS) and technologies supporting them play a crucial role in every organization's management. Furthermore, they have become a key component of the operations in the public sector by extending the level of services offered to the public.
In scientific, professional and educational terms, information systems encompass a variety of complementary issues concerning the infrastructure supporting information systems, methods and tools used for their design and development, projects focused on developing the management of information systems, modelling and reorganization of business processes as well as new approaches to organizational management.
