ULSIT has been awarded an "Excellent" rating for its innovative training program

Robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and other modern technologies, key to the future professions, are the basis of the curricula of students and doctoral students at the University of Library Science and Information Technology (ULSIT). To these are added the "soft skills" for personal and professional success not only as a challenge but also as a basis for career success. These are the highlights of the university rector's new policy, which the Minister of Education and Science gave an "Excellent" rating, the ULSIT team announced.

"I am happy that in today's fast-changing world, communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills are more important than ever, and that our academic staff has succeeded in realizing the ambitious task of putting them into practice in their daily work," said the Rector Prof. Irena Peteva D.S.

"In the learning process, models based on the constructivism design for learning and teaching such as "Learning by Doing" and "Inquiry Learning" are applied. The program covers a wide range of "soft skills", including effective communication, emotional intelligence, cooperation, creativity, and adaptability. Through interactive seminars, practical exercises, and personalized feedback, our graduates achieve successful personal and professional fulfillment", added the vice-rector for academic activities Prof. Dr. Ivanka Pavlova.

ULSIT's development policy has well-established traditions in building the connection between education, science, and business. As an educational and scientific institution, it implements the state policy in higher education in the professional fields of "History and Archeology", "Public Communications and Information Sciences", "Informatics and Computer Sciences" and "National Security". As an academic community of people with a cause, a thought for the future, and an ambition to make the world a better place to live, UniBIT has its specific development policy that fulfills six main goals: relevance, relevance, integrality of acquired knowledge and skills; increasing the quality of training programs by using educational forms, methods and technologies, tailored to the characteristics of the student generation being trained; connectivity and partnership; development of scientific activity; attracting and retaining young teachers; public engagements of national significance.

To ensure the competence of students in the field of new digital technologies, both the Faculty of Information Technology (FIN) and the Faculty of Library Science and Cultural Heritage (FLSCH) offer many disciplines related to artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, and other similar fields, which focus on theoretical foundations and applied aspects of the respective technologies. Students have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the basic concepts, methods, and tools related to the researched areas, led by the professors - well-established scientists with experience and scientific achievements, noted the vice-rector for research work at ULSIT Prof. Dr. Teresa Trencheva.

Another excellent grade from the Ministry of Education and Science is the key to academic success and beyond. In education, this grade serves as a symbol of academic achievement, but it is also evidence of hard work, dedication, and a deep commitment to learning. Beyond the paper report, an excellent grade represents much more than just numerical values, it brings with it a set of valuable life skills and benefits that have an impact far beyond the university halls, Prof. Peteva concluded. 

"The grade "Excellent" means more than academic achievements; it is a testimony of personal growth, discipline, and commitment to education and science in Bulgaria."
Prof. Irena Peteva
