Graduate Degree (M.Sc) in Computer Science and Engineering
Regulation and Master's Program in Computer Science and Engineering acad. year 2023-24

Objectives of the Programme

The Postgraduate Studies Programme (MSc) awards:
Postgraduate Diploma (MSc) in "Computer Science and Engineering".

The aim of the MSc is to deepen the knowledge in one or two thematic areas of Computer Science and Engineering (the research areas can be found here), so that the holders of the awarded degree have increased potential to contribute to industrial research and product design.

The close collaboration that has developed between the Department and the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology (FORTH) continuously supports an excellent environment for conducting research and postgraduate education, and contributes to attracting resources and human resources, while promoting joint participation in international education and research activities, and maintaining a wide range of international partners at academic and industrial level.

All this effort is supported at postgraduate level by scholarships awarded by the University, FORTH as well as other organisations.
