The program of BSc in Electrical Engineering is designed for students aiming to acquire broad theoretical and technical knowledge in the multidisciplinary field of Electrical Engineering. The program equips the students with skills and experience in the engineering design process and the solution of engineering problems, related to generation transmission and distribution of Electric Power via conventional or renewable energy sources, Analog and Digital Electronic Systems, Telecommunication Systems and Automation and Control Systems. The courses offered, are strongly supported by relevant laboratory infrastructure of the latest technology and constitute a balance between theoretical and practical study of the above electrical engineering systems study and their implementation in real world applications. The students are involved in research activities in key technology fields, have the opportunity to gain work experience through industrial placements and the graduates are prepared for direct employment as electrical engineers with the foundation for further graduate and research studies in the field.

 

Specialization in Renewable Energy Sources and Sustainable Energy Systems

In addition to the General Electrical Engineering direction, the specialization of Renewable Energy Sources and Sustainable Energy Systems is offered for Electrical Engineering students aiming to prepare them for career and immediate contribution to the industry and society in the above field, through the design, development, construction, application, operation and maintenance of renewable energy systems and the promotion of more sustainable living through the implementation of new technologies and innovations. 

The language of instruction for both the general direction and the specialization is English.
