New discoveries and findings entail knowledge and active research. Therefore, at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, we realize the vision so we are opening the door to scientific research for young people.

To that end, the Faculty organised the 5th ŠTeKam technical student conference this year, where we could see and hear about the findings reached as a result of hard work by the authors. The conference was attended by students from various faculties – the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering and Faculty of Arts from the University of Ljubljana, and the Faculty of Tourism Studies from the University of Primorska. The scientific conference again proved that some students show above-average results in research during their studies, thus representing large potential for further scientific work. Their papers will be published in the conference publication and entered in the Cobiss system under the typology Published scientific paper at a conference. Students will be able to enforce participation at the conference as an exceptional achievement, which is one of the terms to obtain the Zois Scholarship. By entering their paper in Cobiss, all participants will obtain an official access reference on scientific research. Furthermore, the best paper (according to a panel of experts) will also be published in the Ventil scientific journal. The organisation of the conference has been overseen by the board of editors, i.e. Assist. Prof. Dr. Tomaž Berlec, Assist. Prof. Dr. Miha Brojan and Assist. Prof. Dr. Boštjan Drobnič.
