Main study programme objectives and general competences of graduates, gained at a study programme

Main study programme objectives:

  • To provide education of widely proficient graduates who will be able to solve engineering problems and connect different disciplines innovatively.
  • To enable students transferring between related undergraduate programmes.
  • To meet requirements of the Slovene construction industry by offering the level of the expected knowledge in civil engineering.
  • To offer a study programme that connects specific knowledge in construction, which enables the graduate’s further studies in the postgraduate study programme Civil Engineering or related postgraduate study programmes.
  • To harmonize the study programme with Bologna Declaration which indirectly provide international comparison and transfer.
  • To educate an expert in the field of civil engineering by meeting European guidelines, and to enable graduates to continue postgraduate studies in institutions in Europe or worldwide by providing international comparability and therefore opportunities of employment in European Union.
  • In addition, the goal of the new programme is to provide better student transfer with the focus on expanded individual work under the leadership of a mentor (tutor) in senior years.


Our wish is the accreditation of the programme to acquire the title Euro-eng which demands harmonization of the programme with minimum requirements of the FEANI Association:
