The model developed for evaluating the optimal division of Slovenia into provinces is based on regional centres equipped with activities of appropriate levels, including universities. Connections between universities and the industry of a province are important factors in ensuring equal opportunities to access university education. Information on the regional concentration of students and distribution of organizations providing field placements in relation to all organizations in Slovenia is an important criterion of quality of university education. University and professional studies in geodetic engineering for the entire country is conducted at the University of Ljubljana. A comparison was made between the old and the new university and professional study programmes during the transition to the Bologna study programmes, when University of Ljubljana synchronously offered the old and new study programs (academic years 2008/09, 2009/2010, and 2010/11). The focus of this paper is on the role of field placements in the university with special reference to the understanding and evaluation students' and graduates' competences. The demographic composition of students in geodetic engineering with their involvement in field placements is analysed. An analysis of regional distribution mapping and demographic analysis of organizations with the determination of distance from place of residence of students in geodetic engineering to their field placement is presented.
