About

The Faculty of Computer and Information Science is the leading teaching and research institution in the field of ComputerScience in Slovenia, and in spite of its comparatively short history it has a number of active research groups, as well as a lengthy roster of alumni, some of whom have achieved distinction in various fields of computer science in Slovenia and abroad.
 
The Faculty of Computer and Information Science was founded on 1 January 1996 when the previous Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was split into two new faculties. However, the undergraduate programme in computer science at the University of Ljubljana started in the academic year 1973/74, first as an elective programme after the second year of electrical engineering study, and since 1982 as an independent four year programme.

The building which houses the Faculty of Computer and Information Science is shared with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. The Faculty of Computer and Information Science has 7 teaching laboratories equipped with a total of about 130 networked personal computers and shares with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering 19 lecture halls. The research laboratories are equipped with about 35 workstations and about 100 personal computers. The Faculty's central computer serves as the main e-mail and web server. The Faculty's local network is connected to the Internet through the University's network "Metulj" (Butterfly) and the Academic Research Network of Slovenia (ARNES).

The Faculty has a joint library with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. It houses a large collection of books, textbooks and journals and offers access to several on-line services and databases. Both faculties also share a publishing department which is engaged primarily in publishing textbooks in Slovenian (original and translated) for students.
