What's new in our study offer?

New trends and employers’ demands for certain profiles of graduates, new markets and the growth of information technologies require continuous changes of our academic offer. Being a relatively small university we can quickly respond to changes of the labour market and other characteristics of the changing society.

School of Engineering and Management: new premises, additional e-forms of study

In summer 2017 the School of Engineering and Management acquired new premises in the newly-renovated Lanthieri Mansion in Vipava, also home of the School of Environmental Sciences and the School for Viticulture and Enology. Carrying out a part of academic activities of the undergraduate study programme Engineering and Management (First Level) on new premises has further improved the study conditions. The above-mentioned study programme was revised in 2016/17 and thus offers even more IT-related contents (such as internet marketing, web and mobile technologies, e-commerce, information security) and offering more elective courses. This additional knowledge gives our graduates, who in any case have great employment prospects, even better job opportunities. In the 2018/19 academic year, further online lecture rooms will be established and new series of lectures will be professinally videofilmed, offering our students even more flexibility.
