Today, there is a growing trend for publishing public data in an open format, on the web, making it available for everyone to use and reuse. This idea has been widely supported by governments and companies throughout the world, which have made their own public data available in such way. Some of them, like the World Bank, even challenge developers to write applications based on their open data, by organizing competitions [1]. Data has become the new raw material of the 21 st century [2]. The Linked Open Data project has begun turning the document-oriented web into a database of global proportions [3]. The Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering joins this trend by making parts of its public data available as open data. This paper introduces a system for mapping relational data from databases into data represented in semantic web format (N3 and RDF), as well as editing and querying the data by using a SPARQL endpoint. Here we describe the process of publishing the open data from our Faculty, as well as some basic information from the other faculties which are part of the "Ss. Cyril and Methodius" University in Skopje. We also propose some possible applications which can use this open data, and in that way add more value to it.
