The Erasmus+ programme offers support for organisation of exchanges for graduate, master's and doctoral students between the Erasmus+ states and partner countries. Studying abroad through the Erasmus+ programme offers the opportunity to acquire knowledge, improve foreign language skills and communication, and acquire abilities that are very sought after by future employees.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is encouraging student exchanges, which is evident from the number of exchange students that is rising every year. This study year 48 students from our Faculty will spend a semester or two abroad, divided between nine different European countries, while the number of foreign students at our Faculty is even higher. In the winter semester we will host 45 Erasmus+ and CEEPUS students; in the summer semester we will host 31. They come from 13 different countries. 

We try to make the exchange one of the best experiences of their studies. Together with the University of Ljubljana we organise social events, where we actively connect the Slovene and foreign students, who form bonds of friendship, some even for life.

In December we organised an excursion for Erasmus+ students from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering to JAMATLON, which is held on an underground course through the Trbovlje‒Hrastnik coal mining complex. It is a unique and memorable event, which takes the participants into mine shafts, where they trek or run 5.5 km and have to overcome several mining obstacles. The 12th edition of Jamatlon brought together a total of 340 participants from 10 European countries; 41 participants came from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The students were excited about the event, since Jamatlon is one of the 10 most unusual events in Slovenia, promising an exceptional experience.
