  • the ability to define, understand and solve problems in the field of electrical engineering,
  • critical evaluation of concrete solutions,
  • professional, environmental and social responsibility,
  • professional written and oral communication,
  • use of ICT,
  • independent tracking of developments in the profession,
  • teamwork with experts from related fields.

 

For the academic 2015/16 year, there are 180 study places available for full-time study and 10 study places available to Slovenian nationals without Slovenian citizenship and non-EU nationals.

Provisions on the use and implementation of criteria for the recognition of knowledge and skills acquired prior to enrolment in the programme

In the process of 1st cycle education, the student may be granted recognition of knowledge that is equivalent in content and scope to the teaching content of subjects included in the 1st cycle higher professional study programme in Applied Electrical Engineering. Recognition of knowledge and skills acquired prior to enrolment shall be determined by the FEE Undergraduate Study Committee on the basis of the student’s written application supported by certificates and other documents demonstrating the successful acquisition of knowledge and stating the content of such knowledge, and in accordance with the rules stipulating the procedure and criteria for the recognition of non-formal learning and skills adopted at the UL Senate session of 29 May 2007. If the FEE Undergraduate Study Committee finds that the acquired knowledge is, in terms of the level and scope of credit points, equivalent to or in excess of the knowledge acquired in a subject included in the 1st cycle higher professional study programme in Applied Electrical Engineering, the knowledge and skills thus acquired shall be considered as a completed study component in the relevant subject.
 

Progression to the next year of study

A student in the 1st Cycle Professional Study Programme in Applied Electrical Engineering is granted enrolment in Year 2 after having completed Year 1 components worth at least 54 credits (ECTS) prior to the deadline for enrolment.

A student in the 1st Cycle Professional Study Programme in Applied Electrical Engineering is granted enrolment in Year 3 after having completed all Year 1 components (60 credits) and Year 2 components worth at least 54 credits (ECTS) prior to the deadline for enrolment.

In accordance with Article 153 of the Statute of the University of Ljubljana, a student can exceptionally progress to a higher year without having completed all of the required components for progression if there are reasonable grounds, such as: maternity, extended illness, extraordinary family and social circumstances, recognised disability status, active participation in top-level professional, cultural and sports events, and active participation in university bodies. The right to extraordinary progression is determined by the FEE Undergraduate Study Committee on the basis of an application submitted by the student.

 

Repeating a year of study

According to the legislation and the Statute of the University of Ljubljana, repeating a year of study is only possible once during the course of study. Any change of the study programme due to a failure to complete the required components of a previous study programme is also considered as repeating a year of study.

For repeat enrolment in Year 1, a student in the 1st Cycle Professional Study Programme in Applied Electrical Engineering must have completed Year 1 components worth at least 30 credits (ECTS).

For repeat enrolment in Year 2, a student in the 1st Cycle Professional Study Programme in Applied Electrical Engineering must have completed all Year 1 components (worth 60 credits) as well as Year 2 components worth at least 30 credits (ECTS).
