Based on the trends recognized in employment of IT qualified professionals through the analysis of employers’ needs and based on analyzed characteristics of the labor market in Croatia, the project of establishing Algebra University College was launched in 2006.
The goal of the founders was to create a top quality professional higher education institution that was, along with its program, staff and teaching material, ready to meet the demands of employers and the labor market. The accreditation issued by the National Agency for Science and Higher Education, the results of the re-accreditation in 2012, the quality assurance system evaluation performed by Flemish-Dutch accreditation agency NVAO and the status “Approved by FER” (FER – Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing) supported the fact that these wishes were not ungrounded and confirmed the high level of the University College curriculum.
The University College is a part of the Algebra education group, the founding institution which has been operating on the Croatian market for more than 16 years and has remained the leading educational centre in the region for computing and information technology.
Today, the University College carries out four undergraduate professional programmes and five graduate professional programmes:
UNDERGRADUATE PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM (BACHELOR)
GRADUATE PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM (MASTER)
The curricula of all study programs are fully compliant with the ECTS credit system (Bologna Declaration) and are part of the official system of higher education in Croatia, for which the University College received several accreditations from the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports (first temporary accreditation received in June 2008, permanent accreditation in 2010, accreditation for study programs in multimedia computing and graduate study program in June 2012 and accreditations for both study programs in digital marketing in January 2015).
Algebra University College currently employs over 100 teachers and associate lecturers coming from the academic and business sector and according to the quality evaluation results obtained through regular re-accreditation conducted by the National Agency for Science and Higher Education in 2012, represents one of the best study programs in the Republic of Croatia.
