 Curriculum Vitae

Professional Activities   Dr.sc. Željko Hocenski

Željko Hocenski received B.S. diploma in electrical engineering at the University of Zagreb in autumn 1976. and started as young researcher at the Institute of Electrical Engineering of holding Končar in Zagreb, since 1977. He worked in Industrial Electronics and Automation Department as a designer of industrial control systems. He developed and tested in practice in plants more control systems and electronic equipment such as digital positioning systems with DC drives, data communication systems for railways, remote control system for power network, positioning system in rail factory of steel industry, etc. He was part-time assistant at the Control and Signal Processing Dept., Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FER) in Zagreb in period 1977-1984.

 

He received M.S. diploma. in Computer Science at the University of Zagreb, 1984 and begins to work at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University J.J.Strossmayer in Osijek, Croatia. He worked as an assistant in Automation and Electronics Dept. As he finished his PhD in computer science at the University of Zagreb in 1996 he was assistant professor, head of Automation and Process Control Dept. at the same faculty in Osijek since 1997. He was vice-dean for development and computing (1997-1999) and vice-dean for science (2000-2003). From 2002 he is associate professor, head of Automation and Process Control Dept. He was the dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Osijek since 2003-2005.At this position he worked on introducing the Bologna process to the Faculty separating the study to bachelor and graduate degrees. He was full professor and head of Automation and Process Control Dept., at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Osijek, since 2006. and head of Computer Engineering Dept. since 2010. 

The scientific work and research activities are directed towards the field of design, diagnosis, verification and validation of embedded computer systems as well as fault-tolerant computer systems for the purpose of both controlling plants and processes and process automation. The scientific activities of  Dr.sc. Zeljko Hocenski begins at  the Institute of Electrical Engineering of holding Končar in Zagreb, since 1977. As a young researcher he worked on projects with prof. dr Borislav Rajković and dr. Arbanas on control system for electrical railway engine  for Croatian railways. In a group of dr.Nedjeljko Perić at the same Institute he worked on projects of automation of positioning systems for dredger in coalmine and steel industry flying shear. At the University J.J. Strossmayer in Osijek since 1984 he worked on projects with prof.dr. Vlado Ostović on development of CAD program for AC drives and prof.dr.Tihomil Rausnitz on project of  truck electric brakes and control systems for sugar industry in Osijek. Since 1996 he was the coordinator of group of researcher on the project The process automation use of the new method of managements, main researcher: prof.dr.sc. Nedjeljko Perić, and also  coordinator of a complex technological, research and development project CRO-Grid Infrastructure for the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Osijek, period 2003-2006. He was the project collaborator in the program Leonardo da Vinci from the EU: Good Practice forward pass Achievement in International Work Placements-Quality Assurance in Industrial Placements, International University Saint-Bartholemy d'Anjou, France, 2001-2005. He was the coordinator for J.J. Strossmayer University of Osijek at TEMPUS- JEP “Collaborative Internationalization of Software Engineering in Croatia” in CARDS Program for university management (JEP UM) under grant holder Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Schäfer, University of Paderborn (2007-2009). He was the principal researcher of his own project Fault-tolerant Control and Diagnosis Systems, period 2002-2006 and project Distributed computer control in transport systems and industrial plants, since 2006 till present.
