People make a university or a school valuable, so whether you are a student, a professor, a journalist, a parent, a neighbour, or a visitor, your interest in learning more about us is greatly appreciated.
We were founded in Arandjelovac, a place in Sumadija, at the foot of mountain Bukulja. Arandjelovac was founded in 1860 by Prince Miloš Obrenović. We are the only higher education institution in Arandjelovac and surrounding municipalities. We were founded in 1960 by the Government of the Republic of Serbia’s decree.
For fifty years, the school curricula have been changing according to new achievements in science and technology and were being adapted to the needs of the economy and society. Today, the school curricula are based on the curricula of the most famous schools and faculties in the country. Program orientation of the school reflects the contemporary trends of higher education, scientific work and economic development. The school represents one of the oldest higher education institutions in Serbia and realizes its lectures at two study levels through 7 study programs (undergraduate and master / specialist vocational studies).
During 2012, College of Applied Technology Science received for the second time (first time in 2007) accreditation by the Commission for Accreditation and Quality Assurance for both the institution and the complete study programs. High accreditation criteria have been met, and once again, quality and consistency has been proven in all processes and standards.
In 2017, we simplified our visual identity and introduced the shortened school name “College of Applied Studies Arandjelovac” which more credibly describes a new, more varied choice of study programs.
