Welcome to Automation's Department website

The Department of Automation Engineering was established in 1987, is the newest member of the school of Applied Technology and is government by laws 1404/1583, 1566/1985, 2188/1994 and 2621/1998.

Its goal is to educate students in technological advances of automatic control systems. Duration of studies is eight semesters which includes 7 semesters of theoretical modules and laboratories and completion of a thesis. In addition students must complete a six month placement in public or private sector to gain experience.

National Higher Education System

According to the Framework Law (2007), higher education consists of two parallel sectors: the University sector (Universities, Polytechnics, Fine Arts Schools, the Open University) and the Technological sector (Technological Education Institutions (TEI) and the School of Pedagogic and Technological Education).

The same law regulates issues concerning governance of higher education along the general lines of increased participation, greater transparency, accountability and increased autonomy.

There are also State Non-university Tertiary Institutes offering vocationally oriented courses of shorted duration (2 to 3 years) which operate under the authority of other Ministries.

Access

Entrance to the various Schools of the Universities (Panepistimio) and Technological Education Institutions (Technologiko Ekpaideftiko Idryma –TEI) depends on the general score obtained by Lyceum graduates on the Certificate, on the number of available places (numerous clausus) and on the candicates’ ranked preferences among schools and sections

Qualifications

Students who successfully complete their studies in universities and TEI are awarded a Ptychio (first cycle degree). First cycle programmes last from four years for most fields to five years for engineering and certain other applied science fields and six years for medicine. The Ptychio leads to employment or further study at the post-graduate level that includes the one year second cycle leading to the second degree, Metaptychiako Diploma Eidikefsis-equivilent to the Master’s degree-and the third cycle leading to the doctorate degree, Didaktoriko Diploma.

Recent legislation on quality assurance in Higher Education, the Creidt Transfer System and the Diploma Supplement defines the framework and criteria for evaluation of university departments and for certification of student degrees. These measures aim at promoting student mobility and contributing to the creation of a European Higher Education Area.

Upon successful completion of the programme requirements graduates are expected to: have successfully completed their compulsory courses, mandatory electives, as well as any optional courses of the undergraduate curriculum, their graduation project has been approved, have successfully  completed their practical training, have completed four (4) academic years of study, and have accumulated 240 ETCS credits from the above. Upon completion of his studies, the graduate of the Department has the appropriate scientific and technical knowledge as well as thorough training in practical skills on how to apply that knowledge in order to be able to act professionally in all areas of the scientific field of Automation and Control Systems.

The graduate possesses knowledge which covers the field of control systems on their general operating principles and the application of these principles to practical systems of each technology, such as electrical, electronic, hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical, chemical, biological. Finally the graduate has the adequate responsibility and critical ability in order to manage and complete successfully complicated projects which he has been assigned.
