Study presentation

The Faculty implements the National Higher Education Programme in accordance with the Higher Education Act and the University of Ljubljana Statutes, following the principle of professional autonomy and the principle of professional competence stemming from the registered activity of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. Furthermore, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering provides professional development and top-up training for experts from various technical professions. For this purpose, seminars, workshops and summer schools are organised and implemented. Special attention is devoted to educating young researchers, who are introduced to research and teaching work under the mentorship of university teachers.

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering offers the following Bologna study programmes:

Bachelor’s Degrees

1st Cycle Academic Study Programme in Electrical Engineering


The programme is of 3 years’ duration and worth 180 credits. Besides applied knowledge, the course also equips students with the skills required for autonomous research and development work, as well as resources for the continuation of studies at the master’s or doctoral level. The first two years are common to all students and then they can choose among four programme options of study:

  • Control Systems,
  • Electronics,
  • Power Engineering and Mechatronics,
  • Information and Communication Technologies.

1st Cycle Professional Study Programme in Applied Electrical Engineering

The programme is of 3 years’ duration and worth 180 credits. It is focused on the applied knowledge required for work in production, modelling and other fields in the business sector. The first year of studies covers a common curriculum for all students, followed by five study options in the second year:

  • Control Systems,
  • Electronics,
  • Power Engineering Technology and System Automation,
  • Quality Engineering,
  • Information and Communication Technologies.

During the last (6th) semester, students complete compulsory work practice, which is worth 20 ECTS credits and has a duration of 13 weeks (3 months). They also write their thesis, which is worth 10 ECTS credits.

1st Cycle Interdisciplinary Academic Study Programme in Multimedia

This is the most recent programme at the University of Ljubljana, bringing together some of the best features of electrical engineering, computer science, creativity, business knowledge and communication. The programme is of 3 years’ duration and worth 180 credits. Media technologies, information technologies, telecommunications, software engineering and electrical engineering are areas which are significantly shaping today’s economy, education, culture, administration, and
have spread to virtually all economic and non-economic branches of national economies. The striking development of these technologies dictates the need for highly qualified staff capable of developing new computer and information technology and implementing it in innovative environments, which usually include also non-technical aspects. The field of multimedia is highly interdisciplinary and it requires knowledge from a wider range of areas than other studies.

Master’s Degrees

2nd Cycle Postgraduate Study Programme in Electrical Engineering

The programme is of 2 years’ duration and worth 120 credits. It comprises seven study options:

  • Control Systems and Computer Engineering,
  • Biomedical Engineering,
  • Electrical Power Engineering,
  • Electronics,
  • Mechatronics,
  • Robotics,
  • Information and Communication Technologies.

The first three semesters take the form of lectures and laboratory practice, while the fourth semester is intended for the production of a master’s thesis under the guidance of the selected mentor.

2nd Cycle Interdisciplinary postgraduate study programme in Multimedia

The programme is of 2 years’ duration and worth 120 credits. The 2nd cycle Interdisciplinary postgraduate study programme in Multimedia is a continuation of the 1st cycle programme with the same name. The name reflects the areas on which the programme is based on and the learning outcomes:

  • Media technologies: audio, video, design, language
  • Telecommunications
  • Software development
  • Computer graphics
  • Management and business development, etics.

The objective of the programme is to enable graduates of the 1st cycle programmes of Multimedia, Computer Science, Software Engineering, Informatics, Telecommunications, Electrotechnics and similar to broaden and extend their knowledge acquired at the first cycle study level and focus it on the area of media technologies. The study programme provides graduates with the knowledge necessary to follow technological changes and development in this rapidly developing field, join developmental and scientific work, or continue study at the doctoral level.

2nd Cycle Interdisciplinary Master’s Study Programme in Applied Statistics

All students who complete first-cycle Bologna study programmes may apply for admission to the Master’s Programme in Applied Statistics, regardless of their field of study in the first cycle. The programme is of 2 years’ duration and worth 120 credits. It comprises five study modules: Biostatistics, Social Science Statistics, Economic Statistics, Business Statistics, Technical Statistics and Official Statistics. The first three semesters take the form of lectures and laboratory practice, while the fourth semester is intended for the production of a master’s thesis under the guidance of the selected mentor.

Doctoral Degrees

3rd Cycle Doctoral Study Programme in Electrical Engineering

The doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering is a third-cycle programme according to the Bologna scheme. The study programme of Electrical Engineering inseparably connects the studies with scientific research and development work. The programme focuses mainly on the independent creative research work of students, who are guided by their mentors. The programme gives priority to optional choice over obligatory forms of studies. In order to adequately cover the increasingly ramified field of modern electrical engineering, the choice of study contents is wide and versatile. The possibility of choosing gives students the opportunity to plan their research careers and follow the needs of future employers as soon as possible.

3rd Cycle Interdisciplinary Doctoral Study Programme in Biosciences –Nanosciences

The Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme of Biosciences is a third-cycle programme under the Bologna scheme. The programme consists of organised classes and individual research work for the doctoral thesis. As well as taking into account the Bologna guidelines on quality, the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Biosciences
combines science and experience from the fields of agronomy, biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, economics of natural resources, management of forest ecosystems, horticulture, landscape architecture, wood and biocomposites, nanosciences, nutrition, technical systems in biotechniques, protection of natural heritage, cell sciences, animal sciences and animal breeding.

3rd Cycle Interdisciplinary Doctoral Study Programme in Statistics – Technical Statistics

The main goal of the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Statistics is to further educate experts who have a fundamental knowledge of statistical theory, some experience in the field of statistics or some general statistical knowledge specific to an individual scientific discipline, and who wish to acquire the ability to solve complex methodological problems using advanced IT tools. After completion of their studies, the doctoral graduates will be qualified for creative and independent research work and for solving the statistical problems of future employers.
