This paper deals with a university degree in Environmental Engineering as a part of university studies in Engineering and shows engineering fields in which environmental engineering studies have been established as stand-alone studies globally. Furthermore, the paper gives a short overview of environmental engineering education in Slovenia, and then looks in detail at the integration of environmental engineering studies with study programmes offered at the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering, University of Ljubljana. In 1998, the first ever in Slovenia technical studies in environmental engineering were introduced, i.e. the four-year university study Water Management and Communal Engineering (VKI). In 2009, it was transformed into a new two-stage Bologna study programme Water Management and Environmental Engineering (VOI). The paper presents the basic indicators of the VKI studies (enrolment, graduates, average grades, study duration, drop-out), which formally expires in the academic year 2015/16, and compares them with those of the pre-Bologna university study programme in geodetic engineering.
