Graduates of the undergraduate academic bachelor study programme Geology obtain fundamental knowledge from all fields of geology. They also get a solid base in elementary natural sciences and mathematics. Students obtain basic knowledge from scientific areas related to geology and required for practical geological work and interaction with related areas of expertise.
With select elective subjects students further extend their knowledge in the areas of interest, targeting specific narrower topics in geology. During the study, students will get familiar with traditional principles, and upgrade them with the latest discoveries; all this in a modern educational environment and using modern technology.
Special attention is paid to practical training, especially field work. By working in groups, undertaking project work and solving problems, students will learn to work in teams, give public talks and manage the projects. Students will test thetheoretical knowledge by exercises concerning real-life scenarios; this will facilitate thetransition to the practical work after the finished studies.
At the same time, students will learn a sufficient amount of engineering contents, which enable development of abstract thinking, and to successfully continue their studies in different second-level programs.
Materials have always played an important role for mankind. Even historical eras have been named after some common materials prevailing at that particular time, e.g. Stone age, Bronze age, and Iron age. We cannot imagine our lives without materials: without concrete and steel there would be no buildings or roads, without cooper there would be no electricity. Cars, for example, are composed of many different materials or combinations of these (metals, plastics, glass). Different functional materials can be used also in electronics and sensors.
With optimal combination of materials used in equipment and structures it is possible to achieve safe environment standards, solve environmental problems, regulate energy needs, buy technical products at a reasonable price and enjoy comfortable life. No area of science has changed our lives so much as information technology.
Yet, there would be no such development without modern materials, such as complex semi-conducting materials and optical fibers. New materials, e.g. nano-structured materials carry a large potential which we cannot even foresee at this moment. Therefore, it goes without saying that research and development of materials will always be needed for technological development and a successful global economy.
So join us and choose the academic bachelor study programme Materials engineering.
The bachelor study programme University degree programme in business and economics combines theoretical, methodological, and applied knowledge in business and economics.
The programme uses the most advanced knowledge management and analytical tools to develop and train students for employment. Students gain basic theoretical knowledge to use in practice. Graduates of the programmes are qualified to perform the most demanding professional tasks in industry and public administration, depending on which of the 12 business and economics specialisation chosen.
Students may tailor their course of study to their interests and choose from 12 areas of study. Various elective courses are available and students may choose between courses offered in Slovenian and English. Also, the programme allows students to choose to study abroad (Erasmus exchange or double degree) or in Slovenia.
