BACHELOR DEGREE (PTYCHIO/DIPLOMA ANOTATIS EKPAIDEFSIS)

Education Sector

Higher education

Purpose

Basic

Duration

4 years

The undergraduate curriculum of the Department of Informatics and Telematics is designed based on two main criteria:
1. First, to provide students with the necessary in-depth knowledge on IT and information systems, as well as on technologies of telecommunication systems and networks, so that they can design and develop high quality innovative electronic Telematics services.
2. Second, to emphasize the laboratory part of courses, in a way that promotes daily involvement of students in the laboratories of the Department and encourages their systematic presence in the Department.

The Department has included in the curriculum of study the ECTS credit system since the beginning of its operation (definition of ECTS units, issuance of Diploma Supplement).

More specifically, the curriculum has been designed based on international guidelines of the specific bodies Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). It includes all core subjects of a Computer Science program, mainly in the first years of study. Then, in an effort to meet the modern demands of society for immediacy and worldwide dissemination of information, particular emphasis is given in the areas of Telematics, which are associated with network and internet technologies. For this purpose, the Undergraduate Studies Program provides for compulsory infrastructure classes in the senior years of study for dealing with these technologies, but also optional courses covering a wide range of modern remote applications, such as education (e-learning), entrepreneurship (e-business), governance (e-government), health (e-health), etc.

The curriculum includes three groups of courses:
• Infrastructure – Courses of Mathematics and Research Background.
• Compulsory - Courses covering the ICT and Telematics core, and
• Optional - Deepening and Specialisation courses in Telematics applications.
In order to cover the area of Information Technology, it provides education focused on:
• Technologies and flexible architectures for the development of complex information systems and the support of advanced services.
• Pervasive systems that integrate smart devices, sensors and everyday devices in order to better serve people.
• Study of the impact of digital technology in everyday life and business activity with an emphasis on techno-economic analysis, acceptance and adoption of high technology products and services and the impact of socio-economic and demographic factors on acceptance of innovations.
In order to cover the area of Telematics the education provided concerns:
• Fields of digital technology which are related to mobile technologies and communication technologies (Web - Mobile - Telecoms)
• Provision of e-services in different sectors of human activity such as:
- economy (e-business)
- education (e-learning)
- administration (e-government)
- transport (e-transport)
- health (e-health)
• Design, development and evaluation of technologies and completion of smart devices, such as sensors or telephones (pervasive/ambiguous systems), and applications such as Internet of Things or Smart Home/Building.
• Integrated support of established areas of application of digital technology, such as corporate information technology, health informatics, educational information technology, geoinformatics and bioinformatics.
