Main PageAcademics

The content of Studies of the Department covers the field of Electronics and applications of Electronics in the areas of industrial automation, telecommunications and wireless communications, computing and electronic equipment services.
The first semester of studies includes general core courses such as Mathematics, Physics, Computing, Analog and Digital Electronics. In the next semesters, special core courses are taught such as Telecommunications, Microprocessors, Automatic Control Systems e.tc. From the fifth semester onwards, studies consist of courses of specialization grouped in thematic areas such as Telecommunication Electronics, Computer Electronics, Industrial Electronics and Applications, aiming at providing the students with specialized knowledge.


Upon completion of their studies, the diploma holders of the Electronics Department of ATEITH have obtained the specialized comprehension and education which grants them the aptitude to engage themselves (either singularly or in cooperation with other scientists) in the study, research, and application of modern electronics,telecommunications, control systems, mass media technologies and a lot of other scientific and professional areas that engage electronics.


The duration of studies in the Department is 4 academic years. Each academic year consists of two semesters. The winter (odd) semesters begin in September with an examination period for students that have failed their first examination period. Lessons normally start in October and finish in mid January, followed by an examination period.

Courses are organized into lectures, tutorials, laboratory work and projects. They are distributed in the first seven semesters. The supervised practical training and the thesis are conducted during the eight semester. The full programme of studies can be found here.

Assessment Method

Various types of assessment of the students' performance are used in concurrence with the regulation of studies of the Alexander T.E.I.Th. Common types of assessment are the written examination, project assignments, laboratory exercise reports etc.
A student can get his/her degree after having succeeded to 40 courses of the Programme of Studies and after having fulfilled the Practical Training requirement.

The Thesis is compulsory for company all students. The topics of the thesis are relevant to the technological direction of the Department and to the content of studies. Every student who is working towards his Thesis has a supervisor in order to advise and guide him. A group of up to two students can work together towards a common research topic. The thesis is presented to/examined by a three member Committee consisting of Department Faculty members. One of the Committee members is the student's supervisor. The presentation of the thesis is open to all Faculty members and students of the Department.

Practical Training
The Practical Training is compulsory for all students and is carried out at the end of the seventh semester of studies. The student becomes a trainee for six months and during the duration of the training he is financed equally by the employer and by the State. During the Practical Training period, the student is supervised

by a supervisor, appointed by the Department, for this purpose. Each student has to keep a weekly diary with a brief description of the tasks and the activities he/she was involved. The student is obliged to follow the safety rules and working conditions, and any other regulations applicable to the staff of the practical training provider. All matters concerning the practical training (coordination between students and employers, e.tc.) are handled by a three member Committee. The Committee has at its disposal a list of companies offering practical training positions to the Department students.

In order for a student to perform his/her Practical Training he /she must have successfully completed 160 ECTS.

The employer who offers practical training positions has to fulfill the following requirements:

  • the job offered to the trainee may be relevant to the content of studies of the Department

  • the qualifications of the company's personnel may be equal or higher to an Electronic Engineer's qualifications

  • the space and equipment of the company has to be of high standard for the best possible realization of the Practical Training objectives.
