Yearbook of the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering

DEAN’S FOREWORD

This new biennial Yearbook is a condensed cross-section of UL FGG’s life and work between 2017 and 2019. We ended this period by celebrating the 100th anniversary of the University of Ljubljana.

We looked back with satisfaction an pride on the path we had travelled since 1919, when we became a founding member of the University of Ljubljana as part of the Technical Faculty. We have always considered successful development, which was not always straightforward, as the foundation of our mission and vision of future development.

The centenary of the institution is certainly a milestone worthy of attention and a reason for satisfaction. But time is running too fast to stop and halt the development. We are facing new challenges in the digitalization of society and thus in the adaptation of the educational process. A rapid transformation of society awaits us in order to adapt to rapid climate change and the demands of sustainable development. In all this, we need to work with personal example as an institution and as individuals, and with updated content of curricula.

We need to raise the profile of the professions we are educating or, which are traditional but are losing their appeal and are not attracting enough interest from the younger generation.We urgently need to further develop the competencies of our students that will help them together with high quality knowledge in their professional life in the 21st century.

I believe that the UL FGG Yearbook is a condensed but also an accurate cross-section of our achievements and efforts to achieve qualitative, internationally recognizable work in the fields of education, research & development and professional work in two years.

Professor Matjaž Mikoš, dr. sc.
