Faculty of Electrical Engineering
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE) was founded in 1919 as a unit of the Technical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana.
The main mission of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering is the education of electrical engineering experts. The field of electrical engineering has come a long way from being simply the science of electrical current and voltage. Today, alongside electronics and power engineering, the Faculty is also active in the fields of telecommunications and automation. All fields are integrated with computer and IT sciences, including the most up-to-date communications tools, Internet developments and multimedia solutions.
Regular undergraduate studies consist of the university and higher professional education study programme (1st cycle Bologna programme). Upon completion, graduates can continue their studies in the Masters programme (2nd cycle Bologna programme), as well as a doctoral study programme (3rd cycle Bologna programme). Besides these study programmes the Faculty of Electrical Engineering also provides further professional training and supplementary education for experts from various technical fields. For these purposes it organises and implements shorter seminars of a few days’ duration. Special attention is devoted to the education of junior researchers who – under the guidance of university professors – are introduced to research and teaching work.
To date, over 10,450 engineers, diploma engineers and university diploma engineers have completed undergraduate studies within the Faculty. Postgraduate studies have been completed by over 1,050 Masters students and 550 Doctoral students. Each year approximately 750 students enrol into Year 1 of all study programmes. On an annual basis we see undergraduate studies being completed by 280 students and postgraduate studies being completed by 80 students.
The research activities of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering are very diverse. There are 34 active research labs at the faculty, undertaking 15 research programmes, 1 infrastructure programme and 40 research projects of the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS); i.e. 17 fundamental projects, 15 applicative projects, 5 sub-doctoral projects, and 3 target development projects. The Faculty also participates in 23 bilateral projects with 13 countries and 103 commercial projects for domestic and foreign companies. The Faculty is included in 3 Centres of Excellence (CO BIK, NAMASTE and VESOLJE) and 5 Competence Centres.
