Scientific title (in original and English language): doktor/doktorica znanosti (dr.) / Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) 

The Built environment doctoral programme represents a scientific upgrade in the areas of civil engineering, geodesy, and spatial planning. The fundamental goal of the programme is to obtain highly trained researchers for all the scientific areas, which together contribute their expertise to the programme. By completing the programme, the graduate will be qualified for scientific thinking and solving scientific problems, as well as for cooperation in solving the demanding practical problems using an interdisciplinary approach.

The Built environment doctoral programme is organized by the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering with the cooperation of internationally recognized foreign experts and experts from other faculties of the University of Ljubljana. The programme is divided into three scientific areas: the most extensive part represents the area of Civil engineering; the study area of Geodesy includes geodesy and geoinformatics; the study area of Geology; the interdisciplinary area of Spatial planning and Land management is also suitable for students with previous education in various related areas. The main emphasis of the doctoral study is on research. In addition, the programme offers various kinds of taught subjects such as the compulsory common course, compulsory courses for scientific areas, and an extensive selection of elective courses. The programme enables student mobility in the framework of both organized forms of study and individual research work.
