Admission requirements Enrolment in the doctoral study programme in Electrical Engineering is open to:

  • graduates of second-cycle study programmes,
  • graduates of former study programmes leading to an academic higher education qualification,
  • graduates of former study programmes leading to a pre-Bologna research master's degree in engineering or science/mathematics subjects. Completed course units totalling 90 credits are recognised for such candidates,
  • graduates of former study programmes leading to a specialisation following completion of an academic higher education programme in electrical engineering. Completed course units totalling 60 credits are recognised for such candidates,
  • graduates of former study programmes leading to a specialisation following completion of a professional higher education programme in an electrical engineering field. Additional course units totalling 30 to 60 credits are set for such candidates by the Research, Postgraduate and Doctoral Studies Committee at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering,
  • graduates of other universities in Slovenia or abroad in accordance with the conditions set out in the previous paragraphs.

-

In order to complete the programme and obtain the academic title of doktor/doktorica znanosti, candidates must successfully complete all course units defined by the programme and successfully defend a doctoral dissertation, for a total of 180 credits. Doctoral candidates must publish at least one scholarly article in the field of their doctorate in a journal indexed in SCIE. The doctoral candidate must be the lead author of the article. The scholarly article must be published or accepted for publication before submission of the doctoral dissertation.

-

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
