About the Faculty

print

The Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies (UP FAMNIT) is a member of the University of Primorska (see the booklet), and was founded in 2006.

The Faculty offers courses for all three levels of higher education and conducts research in the fields of mathematics, computer science and information technology, and in the natural sciences. The Faculty works closely with the University of Primorska, Andrej Marušič Institute (UP IAM), where most of the academic staff of UP FAMNIT are currently conducting research activities.

We have 542 students enrolled in study programmes for the 2017/18 academic year, of which 385 are in undergraduate programmes, 148 in master's programmes, and 9 are enrolled in doctoral programmes. The undergraduate programmes are all offered on a full-time basis, while the master's programmes are offered both on a full-time and part-time basis. The doctoral programmes are offered only on a part-time basis. The courses are held in Koper and Izola.

Welcome to Famnit

The Faculty employs 125 university teachers, colleagues and researchers (staff) working in five departments, and 20 professional/technical and administrative staff.

The basic activities of the Faculty include education and research, while the Faculty is also the organiser and co-organiser of resounding international conferences and other scientific meetings.

The Faculty is actively involved in the international field of higher education and research, and has established a wide network of research links with reputable foreign universities. We like to emphasise that the UP FAMNIT research group is one of the four leading research groups in the field of algebraic graph theory in the world. The other three groups are located in China, Australia and South Korea. These efforts by the Faculty have helped place the University of Primorska as an internationally recognised research institution.

The Faculty also holds lectures for the general public (Excursions into the mathematical universe, Biological evenings), summer schools and camps (Math is Cool Summer Camp, Summer School of Mathematical Finance, Natural Science Camp) as well as lectures and workshops, aimed primarily at secondary school and primary school pupils in their final year (Orada - the Computer Science Workshop for secondary school pupils, lectures and workshops in the field of natural science). In September, before the start of the year, we organise workshops for first year students, which we call an Introduction to studying.

The Dean, Assoc. Prof. Klavdija Kutnar, PhD is the Head of the Faculty, while the Faculty Leadership also consists of the Vice-Deans, the Heads of departments and the Faculty Secretary.
