Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Maribor (UM FERI) is one of the leading teaching and research institution in the field of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in Slovenia.
UM FERI provides students with knowledge based on internationally recognized scientific research work, thus enabling them to be successfully integrated within future working environments in Slovenia and/or abroad
We aim to strengthen the positions of our internationally-recognized university education and research institutions within the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, information technology, communications, media, telecommunications and mechatronics, throughout Central Europe.
Research assumes a vital place in the activities of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Important element in the current, quality pedagogical work is following the latest events in the world and being creative and cooperative in the development of our own scientific research work.

Institute of Computer Science
The Institute of Computer Science was established in 1993 as successor to
the Chair of Computer Science, established in 1980. At that time the elective module Computer Science became a part of Electrical Engineering study programme. The institute successfully realised many research projects, which appeal to young scientists to join us. However, development of computer science soon dictated a new study programme. In the study year 1984/85 a new 8-semester Computer Science study programme was initiated. It was transformed to 9-semester study programme in 1993. In the study year 2007/08 the study program was thoroughly re-designed under the Bologna process. Hence, quick development of computer science is successfully transferred to students. After 35 years we have become the largest institute at UM FERI with excellent research results. While every beginning is hard, when a success was even a conference paper, we are now publishing, reviewing and acting as editors in highly respected journals, as well as performing research funded by national and international grants.
Research work is conducted in the following fields: computer graphics, signal and image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition, artificial intelligence, computational intelligence, intelligent systems, computer languages, health informatics, unobtrusive health sensing, bibliometrics, system theory, software engineering, distributed and heterogeneous processing, text and data mining, digital libraries.
