Description

Advertisement

To enable a study programme which provides fundamental knowledge from all the fields of civil engineering, upgraded by knowledge which enables orientation into certain subfields of civil engineering.

To reach adjustment of the study programme with Bologna Declaration that indirectly allows international comparison and transferability.

To educate a well versed expert in the field of civil engineering according to European guidelines and to enable chances for employment on the European workforce market by international comparability of the programme.

To create an expert who will be, besides having broad general foundation knowledge in the field of civil engineering, additionally skilled for solving specific engineering problems and for innovative mutual connecting of different fields of civil engineering.

To educate a constructional expert for Slovene economy that will allow perspective and competition on European market.

The new postgraduate study programme of the second degree is thematically divided into three theme modules which systematically follow the next progression:

1 - Students upgrade knowledge on foundational natural science and IT subjects (statistics, numerical methods...)

2 - Students improve knowledge on foundational subjects in civil engineering (building physics, retaining constructions, transportation routes design, economics of building production, ...); students are able to use mathematical and engineering methods for solving complex engineering problem.

3 - Students gain knowledge from course-oriented civil engineering subjects according to certain programme course (course-specific subjects of three courses: building infrastructures, building constructions and building management); students are skilled for solving complex engineering problems within the single course.

The proposed programme is modern and suggests complete updating of the second part of previous university programme "Civil Engineering" according to European guidelines of Bologna Declaration and expected new needs of Slovene administration and economy.

The new programme will educate profound experts who will be able to incorporate into economy in Slovenia as well as abroad.

The result of so planned programme will be a graduate - master with solid foundational theoretical knowledge and proficient course-specific expert knowledge that will enable independent performance of complex tasks in the field of civil engineering. The student should present the results of the Master's Thesis to professional public before taking the viva examination. The presented results should be based on the research performed by the student in the course of studies.
