Fjolla Bakalli
AUK
Major: Public policy I see ourselves in the 30 upcoming years depending on technology even more than we do today. In my opinion, we will only be giving directions by transmitting all the information orally, instead of typing them in. Hence, I see my laptop transformed into a robot, which I will find myself communicating with all of the time.
Peonare Caka
AUK
Major: Applied arts and science We might not be the strongest country with respect to technology, but I do know that there is a huge potential of students who come to IT courses every day and struggle hard to get the best out of it. Having experienced such enthusiasm among the youngsters, I set no personal restrictions in claiming that Kosovo will be very much developed with respect to technology, by enabling the population, the economy, the political system and most importantly the health system operate in a far more efficient and effective way.
Artë Retkoceri
AUK
Major: Public policy "…when it comes to the personal level of technological advancement, I learn every day. I have learned that technology is a very deep sea that never ends, and you can never get enough of it. Besides the daily improvements that I get for the 'simple' programs, I am lately learning how to modify my computer and make it very much according to my taste…"
Enisa Serhati
AUK
Major: Applied arts and science The impact of technology will be much wider and cause changes in all different areas of life including the technology assisted job performance, which raises productivity. Some of these changes might not be that positive as it is the case with environmental pollution, or computer games obsession. Yet, issues arisen from the technological development ought to be solved according to national and international agreements for potential solutions.
Medina Orana
AUK
Major: Economics and statistics In 30 years time, technology will have advanced so that any technical obstacles here today will be removed; Kosovo will by then have tube lines operating throughout the country, enabling a much higher level of national mobility. This will also improve domestic tourism – this is when people take holidays within their own country to visit friends or relatives, and also business trips
Brikena Avdyli
AUK
Major: Public policy Technology doesn’t impact our lives only in the form of communication, publicity, and entertainment. It eases our working environment as well. Different high -tech machinery have helped and continue helping many hard working employees in their jobs. For instance, construction, manufacturing, and even medicine in Kosova benefit significantly by the advancements of technology.
Fjolla Xharra
AUK
Major: Applied arts and science …I believe that Kosovo shouldn’t but will pursue economic growth by mining our natural resources for outdated technologies. My hope, then, is that the resulting short-term wealth is heavily invested in Information Age technologies to strengthen the long-term position of the national economy for future generations.
Zana Sahatqija
AUK
Major: Public policy 30 years from now Kosovo will have an advanced technology and the life of citizens will become easier and better. But, what is more important is that Kosovo as a state will be more participative in the technology field and will contribute in improving to the overall advancements in informative technology. So, instead of just using what others progress Kosovo will start becoming a partner in inventions and progress.

Kujtim Mustafa
UP
Major: Computer science I think every work that we are doing physical now, in 30 years all those works will replace robot and with this in factories will decrease number of workers. Technology also will develop communication, so we can communicate with other people even near or far from our country, in many easier ways.
Salih Imeri

Rudina Hasimja
AUK

Major: Applied arts and science I am confident that Kosovo at one point in time will be able to reach the level of dynamic technological development in the world and in the near future during the upcoming years we’ll be able to see a State with many production factories, with a large number of employees satisfied with their personal material incomes as a result of this development, luxury and sophisticated vehicles throughout the roads of Kosovo, hence manufactured in Kosovo.
Adnan Hoxha

Major: Public policy Technology will play a major role in every aspect of our lives. Also, it will make our activities less costly, consuming less from our scarce resources, and more environmental friendly, thus creating a better place for the next generations to come. Furthermore, thanks to the better technology we will be able to change our way of living in many sectors such as health, economy, education, communication, transportation, etc.
Agon Nixha
AUK
Major: Applied arts and science Kosovo is far from other leading countries in terms of the usage of modern technology. This is mainly because of the political and economical challenges that Kosovo has encountered throughout the last few decades. Despite this, in my opinion, in Kosovo in the next 30 years, technology will be the dominant force in every sphere of life.
Artan Salihu
UP
Major: Telecommunications Telecommunication technology was developed mainly by the private sector and it had a big impact in the education of young generations. Access to internet, gave us access to a huge number of resources containing very useful information about science and cultures all around the globe. Development of technology is inevitable anywhere and of course in Kosova as well.
Yllka Kadriaj
UP
Major: Economics Our orientation in this area, besides subjects known so far, should be straightened also in their application in our natural resources. To achieve these objectives, we should care for the development of science in our own country. With the optimum combination of capital goods, funds and potential investors, Kosova may have its own manufacturer capacities, why not competitive in the international market.
