Δίπλωμα Ηλεκτρολόγου Μηχανικού και Μηχανικού Υπολογιστών (ΗΜΜΥ), Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering
Certificate from classified upper secondary education school (Eniaio Lykeio) and success in national level admittance examinations.
The curriculum comprises the core (semesters 1-6) and 3 parallel specializations (semesters 7-10). The core cycle is common to all students and provides the necessary background knowledge in mathematics, physics and informatics, as well as in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in the areas of electrical energy, electronic & computer engineering and telecommunications.
At the end of the 6th semester students enrol in one of three (3) distinct areas of specialization: Electrical Energy, Electronic & Computer Engineering, or Telecommunications, where (during semesters 7-9) they attend more applied and technology oriented courses in ECE, most of which are related to the area of specialization they have chosen.
After completion of the 8th semester, students can start working on their Diploma thesis (equivalent to a Master of Science thesis), which they complete and defend at the final 10th semester in front of a three-member assessment committee of the academic staff.
For the award of the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering, students are required to:
1. Successfully attend a number of courses worth 270 ECTS credits (core and specialization courses worth 180 and 90 ECTS credits, respectively). The final grade of each course is based on the studentperformance in various educational activities, such as midterm and final exams, homework assignments and projects, laboratory reports, etc, depending on the course.
2. Work on, write up and successfully defend a Diploma thesis. The Diploma thesis is equivalent to 6 semester courses and is credited with 30 ECTS units.
In addition, students may enrol in a 3-month student internship (work placement, 15 ECTS credits), which is offered as an optional course during the 10th semester in all three specialization areas.
Upon successful completion of the programme requirements, the graduate has the knowledge, expertise and skills to design, implement, support and maintain systems and services for the generation, transmission, distribution, storage, processing, control and utilisation of energy and information.
The Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering discipline entitles its holder to the legally protected professional title of "Engineer" and certifies his/her knowledge and rights to exercise professional work in the field of "generation, transmission, distribution, storage, processing, control and utilisation of energy and information". Graduates of the ECE School are licensed to exercise the profession of Mechanical-Electrical Engineering by the Techical Chamber of Greece, after passing exams, and the corresponding professional rights according to the existing legislation of the state.
The qualification is a terminal award and allows access to postgraduate studies (2rd and 3rd Cycle).
A scale of 1 to 10 applies to the marks of each subject in the Hellenic Higher Education.

Five years of full-time integrated studies (10 semesters x 13 weeks per semester, 300 ECTS credits). ECTS credits are based on the workload students need in order to achieve expected learning outcomes. Workload indicates the time students typically need to complete all learning activities (such as lectures, seminars, projects, self-study, diploma thesis and examinations) required to achieve the expected learning outcomes. 60 ECTS credits are attached to the workload of a fulltime year of formal learning (academic year) and the associated learning outcomes. The student workload ranges from 1500 to 1800 hours for an academic year, whereby one ECTS credit corresponds to 25 to 30 student work load hours.
Full-time, physical presence.
