PTYCHIO (Α Degree awarded by a Greek public University or by an accredited foreign Institution at equivalent status). The Degree has to be awarded to a discipline equivalent to Informatics.
The purpose of the postgraduate program "Interactive Hardware and Software Technologies" is to provide high-quality studies in specialized topics of advanced interactive technologies of software and hardware. The program offers a careful selection of objects, which corresponds to the aforementioned purpose via a balanced approach, combining the deepening in scientific foundations, the systematic design of interactive systems and the practice through the involvement with designing and implementing realistic problems.
The Postgraduate Studies Program "Interactive Hardware and Software Technologies" of the School of Informatics of the A.U.Th., will offer to the enrolled students :
(a) a wide interdisciplinary overview concerning interactive systems, i.e. those that integrate the Human Computer Interaction or/and their continuous interaction with their environment,
(b) a deep specialization in technological aspects of hardware and software,
(c) knowledge about the theoretical background of interactive technologies, and
(d) familiarity in designing of interactive technologies, their applications and evaluation.
The qualification is a terminal award and allows access to doctoral studies.
A scale of 1 to 10 applies to the marks of each subject in the Hellenic Higher Education.

3 SEMESTERS, 90 ECTS
Workload during a full academic year is equivalent to 60 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) units and workload during each semester is equivalent to 30 ECTS units (1 ECTS unit =25-30 student workload hours). Compliance with the ECTS regulations started in 2007, when the Greek Legislation was harmonized with the relevant European one (Ministerial Decision no Φ5/89656/β3, art. 1-3, Hellenic Government Gazette no 1466/2007/B). Each course is credited with a number of ECTS (>=2) according to the studentworkload (contact hours, laboratory work, examination etc.) and accumulation of credits (ECTS) is accomplished after successful completion of the course.
