About Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering

From the very beginning, when the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Geodesy were active within the Technical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana, they boasted numerous esteemed professionals. At present, UL FGG is represented by these two departments and also the Department of Environmental Civil Engineering. Worth mentioning are also study programmes Buildings and Spatial Planning. The Faculty has 670 students studying in 5 undergraduate, 5 graduate programmes and 1 doctoral programme. The Faculty employs close to 200 full-time employees, of which 90 are teachers. UL FGG is one of only two faculties providing civil engineering knowledge and the only faculty for geodetic engineering and water science and environmental engineering in Slovenia. Thus, all three main areas of study programmes (Civil Engineering, Geodetic Engineering end Water Science and Environmental Engineering) affect importantly and directly the personnel structure in the economy, as well as in the state administration and local communities. In the time from its establishment in 1919 until 31 December 2018, 8,685 graduates finished their studies at UL FGG. Of that, 5,382 were civil engineers, 2,348 were geodetic engineers and 429 were engineers of water science and municipal (environmental) engineering. In 2013, we recorded the first master engineers. Until 21 December 2018, a total of 292 engineers finished the second cycle master study programmes offered by our faculty. Of that, 113 were from the area of civil engineering, 70 from the area of geodesy and geoinformation, 32 from the area of buildings, 51 from the area of water science and environmental engineering and 26 from the area of spatial planning.
