University of Gjilan continues its former university tradition in Gjilan - Teacher training began in the second half of the 1950s (1958), at the level of higher schools. It was initially established as a Pedagogical Academy on 18 September 1973, while the work started on 25 December 1975. At the 2nd meeting of the Senate of the "Kadri Zeka" University, held on 26.12.2013, the new Faculty of Computer Science (FCS) was approved and accredited in the framework of UKZ and after regular evaluation of the experts from Kosovo Agency for Accreditation. Unlike the other faculties of the "Kadri Zeka" University, which were continuation of the branches of the respective faculties of the University of Prishtina, the FCS started its work for the first time on October 1st, 2014, registering 122 new students. In the public contest for student enrollment for the coming years, a large number of candidates were presented, so math's and informatics tests were selected for the selection of the best.
The curriculum at the FCS is carried out for three years (6 semesters) of regular studies. The FCS provides basic and advanced knowledge on technological and software challenges in the field of computer science as well as tire application in the IT industry and software development for Web Design and Economics. Knowing that engineers in modern times need to be able to solve ever more complex problems and issues for designing and implementing package software, designing and implementing computer solutions, or to improve and maintain technology information that will be provided in this Bachelor program will cover techniques that will increase productivity in the development of software and information technology.
Within the FCS, from the academic 2017/2018 was accredited the Master e-Governance program where 60 regular students were enrolled. Planned in the near future, the launch of new study programs from the IT field.
Digitalization - DEVELOPMENT TOWARDS e- SOCIETY
The digitalization could be explained such as the evolution of the humanity, a development of the human intelligence, if it is used properly. At company’s level, the target of this digitalization is to develop effective management and operational processes to make easier and maximize company’s efficiency. If we want to know the impact of this phenomenon on companies and markets you just have to think about one question:
What company could survive in its respective market without have a webpage or appear on the Internet?
Nowadays it’s impossible to imagine a big company or a SME without a minimum reference on the Internet, because that information makes customers trust in enterprises and their services or on the other hand doubt about them depending on the appearance of their webs or regarding opinions of other costumers. But the profits of digitalization provide more advantages than disadvantages to companies. With the progressive arrival of this phenomenon all the markets have been globalized and enterprises have yield benefits from it, using for example the Internet as a canal to sell their products and gain share of the market.
When we are thinking about digitalization and taking into account its progress, an unavoidable question appears on our minds: Will we be replaced in our jobs for computers in the near future? In this digital era we can’t be sure at all. All the enterprises require a good use of technologies as something essential and basic to fulfil their profile of employee. It’s all about taking any opportunities to learn about technological process and programs that could be useful for working in different kind of enterprises.
The main target of this Conference is to motivate and make the students aware about the importance of technologies in business, showing them a huge variety of options to use digital technology and the profits that could be achieved through it. The characteristics of the event and the quality of the projects which will be presented in the DiGiDay Conference will offer a perfect opportunity of gaining meaningful insights of present and future trends in digital marketing and sales for businesses. At the end of the DiGiDay Conference we will leave with a pretty good idea of how important the technology
is nowadays for business.
That digital marketing is very important for a company at all levels: awareness, website, brand advertising,
personalization etc. Also to engage the consumers it is a great idea to involve them in activities related to the
company for example sending them surveys so they can get involved in the improvement of the company.
And for the last one it is kind of obvious, the bookings being made online or through an app. It’s innovative!
