The Future of Engineering Education 
Worldwide engineering education is under pressure from several directions: an increasing demand for STEM professionals, an accelerated increase in the volume of the engineering body of knowledge, and a decrease of learning motivation of engineering freshmen. Simultaneously some things seem unchangeable: the duration of engineering education and its cost. An important thing that did change is the learning environment: Internet, personal computers and smartphones, ubiquitous connectivity, free information, free on-line courses, multimedia, visualization, simulations and virtual labs.There are hopes and fears how artificial intelligence will influence education in general. The key agent in an educational ecosystem are teachers and their key tool are their teaching methods. What should educator’s role be today and tomorrow? What teaching methods are most suitable and how do students actually learn in this changed learning environment? How do students actually want to learn? Should teachers change or be changed, replaced? What is the magic ratio of theoretical and practical knowledge in higher education? Can anything be really improved in higher education without the significant changes in primary and secondary education? What changes are needed there? Finally, do scientific publications and conference papers provide any substantial knowledge, value and meaning other than anecdotal?

Comparison of Different Classification Techniques in Predicting a University Course Final Grade 
In this paper, we subject the education evaluation to different classification techniques. Then, we compare their results. The main idea is to check the suitability of different classification techniques to be used as prediction tools. After that, we conduct a comparison of the obtained results. Some classification techniques show better suitability to respond to the given assignment than the others. At the end, we show the classification techniques, which can be used in these cases as a prediction tool.

Laboratory Model for Research on Computer Cluster Systems 
This paper discusses the project-oriented learning for students in Computer Science. The proposed laboratory model of computer cluster is designed and built by students and lecturers in the courses of Computer Architectures and Fault-tolerant Computer Systems in Burgas Free University. The cluster consists of four nodes - single-board computers Raspberry Pi 3, and is used in education for research on the relationship between the number of the nodes working simultaneously and its performance. Additionally, refusals are simulated for studying the fault-tolerance of the system in condition of degradation and reconfiguration. The proposed model of a computer cluster is aiming at: 1) involving students in scientific research and 2) solving the longstanding problem with the high price of high-performance computer systems.

Effective Collection and Selection of Research Articles for a Systematic Review 
The first step in any research work is to gain a better understanding of selected research topic and its placement in the research field. To achieve this a Systematic Review (SR) is usually performed in one of two forms. A Systematic Mapping Study (SMS) uses a principle of classification of a large number of collected articles to present a wider picture of the research topic, while a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) addresses a more specific research question by providing insight into selected literature. In both cases, the collection and selection of proper articles is crucial. Due to the large quantity of available articles from many different sources and its diverse quality, a lot of tedious (often manual) work is required. This article addresses the issues of effective collection and (the first) selection of an appropriate set of articles. First, the role, the contents and the use of suitable guidelines for conducting an SR is presented. Then, the collection of articles using different approaches is shown with an emphasis on effective search in Digital Libraries (DLs). Finally, the issues connected with an effective selection of an appropriate set of articles (from all collected) is described. In this part, we advise to collect as many articles as possible and perform a quick screening phase to eliminate the obviously incorrect ones before the final decision on their inclusion into the set of selected articles..

Teaching professional skills in microwave circuit design class 
In addition to solid grounding in technical skills of their chosen specialty, engineering students are expected to also acquire various professional skills during their studies. One description of such skills is given by various accreditation agencies, e.g., ABET. Arguably, need for extensive training in the area of professional skills is even more important for graduate students. In this paper we describe a somewhat expanded set of these skills and how they are honed in senior / graduate course in microwave circuit design. They include: teamwork, critical thinking, writing, reading and metacognition. Details of implementation and possible transfer to similar courses are discussed. In particular, we describe educational use of systematic literature reviews in graduate engineering education as a tool to teach all of these skills.

Prijedlog modela izrade i izvođenja praktične nastave za IoT rješenja u simulacijskom okruženju 
Računalne mreže su jedna od bitnih sastavnica ICT-a, zbog čega se u području informatike i računarstva na Tehničkom Veleučilištu (TVZ) pojavljuju kao obavezni kolegij. Osnovni cilj svih tečajeva iz područja mreža očituje se u proučavanju osnovnih koncepata na kojima se temelje računalne mreže. Danas je moguće povezivati različite uređaje preko interneta i takvim spajanjem ostvaruje se niz mogućnosti poput njihovog aktiviranja, kontrole i praćenja. U računalnim mrežama to se područje naziva Internet stvari ( IoT). Zbog sve većeg utjecaja koje to područje ima na poslovanje, bitno je u postojeće kurikulume iz područja računalnih mreža uvrstiti dio koji se odnosi na IoT. Kada je u pitanju osposobljavanje studenata za rješavanje praktičnih problema iz područja računalnih mreža i primjene IoT-a, upotreba realne opreme može predstavljati financijski problem. U tu svrhu mogu se koristiti simulacijski softveri poput Packet Tracer-a, uz primjenu primjerenog metodičkog pristupa učenja. U ovom radu bit će prikazan model pripreme, izrade i izvođenja laboratorijskih vježbi pomoću simulacijskog sustava Packet Tracer i korištenje STAR Legacy modela učenja utemeljenog na konceptu istraživačkih projekata. Predloženi metodološki pristup može se primijeniti kako u srednjim školama, tako i na visokim učilištima i fakultetima.

STEM i obrazovni sistem u Bosni i Hercegovini 
Posljednjih godina, vlade velikog broja zemalja posebno naglašavaju neophodno poboljšanje kvaliteta obrazovanja iz oblasti znanosti, tehnologije, inženjerstva i matematike - STEM. Ovo implicira važnost navedenih disciplina u modernom društvu. Sve više obrazovnih institucija širom svijeta svoje nastavne planove usmjeravaju ka izučavanju navedenih oblasti kao jednog multidisciplinarnog predmeta sa kohezivnim paradigmama učenja temeljenim na rješavanju stvarnih životnih problema. Znanja iz ovih disciplina omogućit će ciljani ekonomski rast kroz usmjerene projekte, podržavaju inovacije i daju osnove za daljnji razvoj društva u cjelini. U radu je analizirano stanje STEM obrazovanja u Bosni i Hercegovini, te je dat pregled implementiranih projekata iz STEM područja u zemlji. Načinjena je usporedba provedenih STEM aktivnosti u domenu obrazovnih sustava drugih država sa sličnim aktivnostima u BiH, te je ukazano na moguća poboljšanja u sustavu obrazovanja.
