International Cooperation and Mobility
Modern higher education teaching and scientific work in the technical area is unthinkable without laboratories. The Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences Statute and Workplace Organisation regulations from 2007 did not foresee the organisation of such units. The Development Strategy of the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences for the 2012-2017 period envisages organisation of laboratories in order to advance scientific, professional and teaching activities. Therefore, on April 24, 2012 a decree on the temporary organisation and activities of laboratories, specialised classrooms and practicums of the Faculty was made. The decree created the organisational framework and enabled the formal proceedings for the organisation of new teaching units for scientific, teaching and practical work of the Faculty’s teachers, researchers and experts, as well as external associates.
Since the issuing of the decree, significant progress has been made in the acquisition of IT and laboratory equipment. All Faculty classrooms have been furnished with modern IT equipment, a new specialised classroom has been created and 12 new laboratories organized and furnished. The equipment of existing laboratories has been updated. This has created the necessary conditions for the advancement of scientific and research activities at the Faculty which significantly affected the continuous development of the teaching process on all study levels and contributed to the quality of professional activities.
The primary purpose of this catalogue is to inform students, especially postgraduate students, teachers, scientists and researchers at the Faculty about the existence of equipment in the various department laboratories which will contribute to teaching, research and professional activities. The catalogue will enable future analysis of equipment usage and systematic planning in acquisition of new items. The Faculty catalogue of laboratory equipment and software packages will provide potential partners from other research, higher education and professional institutions with a better insight into the Faculty’s abilities and encourage cooperation on joint projects.
I would like to thank my colleagues who participated in the creation of this catalogue, from heads of laboratories who listed and described the equipment, the coordinator who integrated the descriptions, to the staff members who designed and prepared the catalogue for print. I would also like to thank everyone who participated in the acquisition of the equipment and the businesses that donated certain items.
