The academic studies and research activities at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science are carried out in the following institutes:

  • Institute of Automation
    The Institute of Automation conducts basic and applied research in the field of electrical and high precision measurements of electrical and non-electrical quantities, measurement automation, signal processing and remote control, sensor systems, system theory and control, modelling, identification, computer control of processes, system design and automation, software in automation, expert systems in automation, fuzzy control systems, man-machine communication, electro-optics systems, programmable logic control systems and real-time control systems.
  • Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications
    The Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications was established in 2006 by merging the Institute of Electronics and the Institute of Telecommunications. Its primary research areas are speech recognition, language technology, multimedia systems, digital signal processing, electronic circuits, digital filters, microcomputer systems, formal verification of distributed systems, development of concurrent telecommunication services and protocol stacks. The Institute encourages the transfer of research results to next generation networks.
  • Institute of Power Engineering
    Research work at the Institute of Power Engineering is divided into the following three fields: 1) electromagnetic devices; 2) production, transmission and distribution of electrical energy; and 3) power system control. Research in the field of electromagnetic devices focuses on numerical methods. In terms of electrical energy, research explores optimisation processes, reliability and the quality of electric energy. The last research field involves modernisation of power system control.
  • Institute of Robotics
    The Institute of Robotics performs basic and applied research for the development and building of robot systems, production automation, sensor systems, control theory, modelling, identifications, computer process control, industrial robotics, servo-systems, robot controllers, real-time control systems, advanced control algorithms for the control of position, speed and torque.
  • Institute of Computer Science
    Its main research areas are computer graphics, artificial intelligence, computer animation, multimedia, programming languages, computer architecture, medical informatics, software engineering, signal and image processing and system software.
  • Institute of Informatics
    The Institute of Informatics conducts research in the field of software engineering with specific focus on object-oriented methods and tools, information system design, intelligent system supporting system engineering activities, expert system design, database design as well as design and implementation of software quality management methodologies.
  • Institute of Mathematics and Physics
    The Institute of Mathematics and Physics participates in research conducted at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Mechanics of the University of Ljubljana.
  • Institute of Media Communications
    The Institute of Media Communications is still in its start-up phase. It focuses on interdisciplinary research in the field of radio and TV production, information systems and graphic communication.

The institutes are divided into 30 laboratories.
