The academic bachelor study programme Technical safety is designed to equip future engineers with the knowledge necessary for strategic integration into safety processes on the basis of risk analysis. The programme enables future engineers to discuss and analyse safety problems prior to the realization of projects, and not as is the existing practice when they are called into action only after the processes have been set up and technical safety engineers can no longer have an essential influence on occupational and fire safety.
Professional bachelor study programmes Marine engineering is designed to create professional, competent, and technically qualified experts in the field of mechanical engineering, with emphasis placed on theoretical knowledge and practical skills that allow the operation, management, and maintenance of marine engine and energy systems. The study programme is based on the requirements of the 1978/1995 International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, as amended. Through the studies the graduates will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for the acquisition of the title of Officer in Charge of an Engineering Watch on Ships Powered by Main Propulsion Machinery of 750 kW Propulsion Power or More, or Second Engineer Officer or Chief Engineer on Ships Powered by Main Propulsion Machinery of 3,000 kW Propulsion Power or More. The acquired knowledge and skills include a thorough knowledge in the field of marine engineering, communication skills, a solid knowledge of English, the ability to write professional reports, and team working and problem-solving skills.
The main objective of the professional bachelor study programme Nautical studies is to create professional, competent, and interdisciplinary experts in the field of marine navigation, with emphasis placed on theoretical and practical skills necessary to master a vessel and have control of marine navigation in compliance with the requirements of the 1978/1995 International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, as amended. Through the studies, the students will acquire knowledge and skills necessary for the acquisition of the certificate of Officer in Charge of Navigational Watch on Ships of 500 Gross Tonnage or More, or Chief Mate or Master on Ships of 500 Gross Tonnage or More. The nature of this study programme is interdisciplinary. In addition to the core courses of navigation, it includes courses in economics, international law, maritime administration, sociology, cultural and communication studies, and methodology.
The main objective of the professional bachelor study programme Transport technology and logistics is to provide students with the knowledge and skills neccesaary to explore challenging issues in their professional and working environments, communicate within their discipline and across disciplines, to adopt a critical stance and responsibility, take over initiatives and be independent in decision-making and leading positions. A mandatory part of this course is a period of practical training in enterprises in the fields of transport, traffic, and transport logistics. The current problems in transport technology and logistics as well as the challenges of academic and technical-technological progress alimented by the needs of the Slovene society and economy call for highly professional human resources in transport technology and logistics that will be able to provide concrete solutions to practical problems. The different elective courses of this study programme have been created based on the needs of the economy and provide students with several possibilities among which they can choose the ones that best match their personal and professional interests.
The main objective of the academic bachleor study programme Transport Technology and Logistics is to provide high quality knowledge based on solid theoretical foundations and understanding of problems in the broader field of transport, traffic, and transport logistics. The graduates from this programme can choose either to seek employment or continue their studies in the second-cycle master’s degree programmes. The principles of the Bologna Declaration, the Association of European Institutions of Higher Education (EUA), the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI), and the federation of European higher education in the field of transport as well as opportunities for student mobility and the high number of elective courses provide a guarantee for the acquisition of European-standard knowledge and employment qualifications.
The goal of the academic study programme Kinesiology is to educate kinesiologists for the work in the fitness preparation programmes, programmes of sport and tourism and for the work in health prevention programmes. Students gain knowledge of biopsychosocial characteristics of individual age groups and sexes, health aspects of physical load, physiological aspects of physical load, basic biomechanical aspects of physical load and general pedagogic, andragogical and didactic aspects of sports practice. They are empowered to plan, implement and control the practice which exerts influence on the motor and functional abilities and physical characteristics of healthy persons. Students can upgrade their studies with a direct transfer to the master study programme Kinesiology.
The goal of the academic study programme Sports training is to educate trainers for the needs of top sport at all levels and for the needs of the service sector. Students gain knowledge about athletes and their developmental characteristics, pedagogic and didactic aspects of the process of sports practice, knowledge of health aspects of sport, physiological aspects of sport, basic biomechanical aspects of sport. They are able to use theoretical concepts of sports practice, communicate and lead athletes and teams, cooperate and communicate with athletes’ parents, officials, referees, agents, media.
