(1940 - ) After successfully defending her dissertation at the Faculty of Architecture, Civil and Geodetic Engineering (FAGG) at the University of Ljubljana in 1976, Darinka Battelino became the first woman in former Yugoslavia to obtain a civil engineering doctoral degree.
In 1964 she won the student Prešeren award (the highest prize in Slovenia awarded for diploma thesis) and shortly after became the first female professor at FAGG; she was initially employed as a teaching assistant for the course Soil mechanics and later elected to the position of assistant professor of geotechnical engineering (1987). She also lectured at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of Maribor (1977-1991). After 1991 she obtained professor positions in Italy (University of Trento 1991-1993 and since 1993 University of Trieste) and in 1992 spent six months as a visiting professor at the University Obafemi Alowo Ife in Nigeria.
An important part of her academic career was dedicated to teaching. She supervised a number of undergraduate and postgraduate theses, including the first doctoral dissertation in civil engineering to be defended by a woman at the University of Trieste (2005). She played a key role in establishing cooperation between the universities of Ljubljana, Maribor, Graz, Vienna and Trieste and mentored a number of joint bilateral theses. In 1982 she received the national Kavčič award for her educational work at the university.
