Postgraduate Studies in Modern Electronic Technologies


The Postgraduate Studies Programme in Modern Electronic Technologies is operating at the Department of Physics since 1996 in co-operation with the Chemistry Department and the Laboratory of Medical Physics of the School of Medicine of the University of Ioannina. The Programme aims to train postgraduate students so that they could contribute to the promotion of research and development processes, as well as to the support of production in modern technological state-of-the-art areas in the field of Electronics and Telecommunications. The Postgraduate Studies Programme in Modern Electronic Technologies of the Department of Physics leads to a M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree in Modern Electronic Technologies in Physics.

Candidates should be holders of a degree in Physics, Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Technology Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Computer and Telecommunications and Network Engineering, or other relevant specialties, either graduates from a Greek Higher Education Institute (AEI) or Technological and Educational Institute (TEI) or holders of a recognised equivalent diploma from a foreign country.

Selection of candidates is based on interview, English language examination (the knowledge of any other European language is also taken into account), and curriculum vitae evaluation. Oral or written examinations may be required as well and students may be required to attend specific undergraduate courses in the Physics Department.

To obtain a degree, students are required to successfully complete taught courses, carry out a research project and write a postgraduate dissertation, which is presented and evaluated. Postgraduate students may receive financial support on the basis of academic and social criteria provided that they fulfil the requirements of the Programme.
