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.

The programme encompasses the legally defined objectives of master degree programmes, research and professional elements, characteristics of contemporary and sustainable maritime industry, and internationally recognized professional goals suited to the level of second-cycle studies. The provision of knowledge and skills during study enable graduates to continue studies at a doctoral study level or find employment in the fields of research and development, services in the maritime, marine, transport, and traffic industries as well as activities accompanying these sectors, public administration, economic and interest associations, etc.
The Master's Degree Program in Transport has no optional study orientations.
Graduates are granted access to the doctoral study programmes Maritime studies and transport.
The main objective of this programme is to upgrade the professional knowledge and skills necessary for efficient problem-solving in the fields of transport studies, the development of the ability of communication within this discipline and across disciplines, the development of a critical professional stance and responsibility as well as the ability of independent decision-making and leadership.
The experts - graduate of this s study programme are qualified for the planning and implementation of services in accordance with the characteristics of transport, traffic, and logistics processes, exploitation of traffic infrastructure and transport means in integrated transport, and traffic safety, all in accordance with technical-technological, natural, geo-traffic, human resources, legal, economic, information, telecommunication, and other conditions of integrated transport modes.
The master study programme Kinesiology – exercise and health orientation is a continuation and the upgrade of the bachelor study programme Kinesiology. The main aim of this programme is to give students competences in the field of planning and implementation of the health enhancing physical activity programmes for adolescents and adults.
The main objective of the master's degree program in Kinesiology is to educate exercise professionals for planning, implementation and supervision of physical activity and exercise programs for adults with certain chronic non-communicable diseases and people with acute and / or chronic locomotor injuries after rehabilitation process is finished.
The program originated from the needs of connecting sports and medical skills in the field of training of adult persons, which may have above mentioned health issues. The proportion of persons with certain medical conditions is increasing with advanced age, so the special care in the program is intended for the elderly population.
Students will learn about the basic bio-psycho-social characteristics of these groups of people, especially those that are important in terms of their physical exercise. They will develop the ability for team work and good communication in a professional team, learn about health risks associated with exercise, learn the appropriate screening for exercise, and know possible contraindications for exercise.
