The study programme is implemented in cooperation with the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. It is oriented towards delivering the theoretical bases od computer science and related advanced fields od discrete and computational mathematics. During the course of studies, students acquire a wide range of knowledge of the basics of computer science, informatics and mathematics, and learn to control and later develop new advancements in the field. A solid mathematical basis helps them understand and integrate new interdisciplinary fields such as biotechnology, biomedical informatics, theoretical chemistry etc.

  • Main objectives and acquired competences of the programme

The aim of the interdisciplinary programme of Computer Science and Mathematics is to provide training in the theoretical foundations of computer science and the related modern branches of discrete mathematics and computing.

Graduates acquire a wide range of knowledge in the basics of computer and information science, enabling them to understand and later on develop new achievements in this area. Furthermore, this study programme continues to produce highly-qualified experts who are trained to work with new technologies yet to be developed, whilst continuing and expanding research and discoveries in computer science and computer mathematics.

Graduates also have a good grasp of background knowledge and can work in new interdisciplinary fields where they can apply their expertise both in theoretical computer science and the relevant mathematical support fields, such as certain disciplines of biotechnology (e.g. genetics and bioinformatics), biomedical sciences, theoretical chemistry and so on. 

General competencies acquired through the programme

Graduates are qualified to work in the development of information technologies and research in mathematics and computer science. Their solid foundation also serves them in acquiring new skills in the rapidly evolving field of computer science. Graduates acquire the following general competences:

  • Problem abstraction and analysis;
  • The ability to synthesise and critically assess results;
  • The ability to apply knowledge in practice;
  • The ability to communicate knowledge, expert spoken and written communication;
  • The ability to find resources and critically assess information;
  • The ability to work independently as well as in a team (international team),
  • The ability to develop professional responsibility and work ethics.

  • Requirements for progressing into a higher year

To enrol in Year 2, students must complete requirements amounting to at least 53 ECTS. To enrol in Year 3, students must complete all requirements from Year 1 and at least 53 ECTS from Year 2. 

  • Requirements for completing the study programme

To complete the study programme, students must complete all exams and other study requirements, including the Diploma seminar, in a total of 180 ECTS. 

  • Transferring from other study programmes

Transferring is, in accordance with the Criteria for Transferring between Programmes, possible from study programmes which upon completion guarantee similar competences and which enable the recognition of at least half of the obligations based on the European transfer credit system (ECTS) from the first study programme that are related to obligatory courses of the second study programme.

Transferring from other programmes is possible after the first year of study.

The requirements for transferring to the 1st cycle interdisciplinary university study programme of Computer Science and Mathematics from other programmes are:

  • Completed requirements for enrolment in the programme;
  • The appropriate authority defines, on the basis of a comparison of the two programmes, the requirements to be recognised and the year in which the candidate can enrol, and consequently issues a decision.

Transferring is possible on the basis of the provisions applicable to such programmes.

Transferring from programmes offered at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics

Transferring is possible after Year 1 and Year 2 of studies at FMF. After Year 1, transferring is possible if candidates have completed the following courses in the Mathematics university study programme:

  • Assessment Methods

Assessment methods are defined individually for each course in the syllabus. The general rules for assessment methods are regulated by the Study Rules and Regulations for Bologna Study Programmes FRI and the FMF Assessment Rules. For all courses, knowledge is assessed through a written and/or oral exam. Assessment methods can include: lab tutorial written exams, lab tutorial oral exams, seminars and project work and their oral defences. The grading scale follows the Statutes of the University of Ljubljana. All types of assessments are graded on a scale from 1 to 10, where 6 – 10 are passing grades and 1 – 5 failing grades.
