The Faculty of Computer and Information Science of the University of Ljubljana is Slovenia’s leading educational and research institution for computer and information science.


The Faculty’s main function is educating undergraduate and graduate computer science experts of various profiles, as well as engaging in research work which generates new knowledge and uncovers solutions to contemporary problems. The Faculty also offers additional educational activities in computer and information science for several professional profiles by hosting lectures and workshops to increase the level of computer literacy in the country. Its public events also serve to popularise ideas about computers, especially among young people.


The Faculty was founded in 1996, when the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science split into two separate faculties. The study of computer science itself began at the University of Ljubljana back in 1973, first as an elective programme after the 2nd year of electrical engineering study, and has been an independent study programme since 1982. In 2014, the Faculty moved to a new building in Brdo at the outskirts of Ljubljana.


The Faculty is a full member of the University of Ljubljana. The University was founded in 1919 and is the oldest and largest higher education and scientific research institution in Slovenia.
