Δίπλωμα Ηλεκτρολόγου Μηχανικού και Μηχανικού Υπολογιστών (ΗΜΜΥ), Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Certificate from classified upper secondary education school (Eniaio Lykeio) and success in national level admittance examinations.

The curriculum comprises the core (semesters 1-5) and 3 parallel specializations (semesters 6-10).
The core cycle is common to all students and provides the necessary background knowledge in mathematics, physics and informatics, as well as in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in the areas of electrical energy, electronic & computer engineering and telecommunications.
At the end of the 5th semester students enroll in one of three 3 distinct areas of specialization: Electrical Energy, Electronic & Computer Engineering, or Telecommunications, where (during semesters 6-9) they attend more applied and technology-oriented courses in ECE, most of which are related to the area of specialization they have chosen.
After completion of the 7th semester, students can start working on their Diploma thesis (equivalent to a Master of Science thesis), which they complete and defend at the final 10th semester in front of a three-member assessment committee of the academic staff.
For the award of the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering, students are required to:
1. Successfully attend 61 semester courses, 33 of which are compulsory core courses, whereas the remaining 28 ones depend on the chosen specialization area as follows:
Specialization area of Electrical Energy: 16 compulsory and 12 elective courses.
Specialization area of Electronic & Computer Engineering: 12 compulsory and 16 elective courses.
Specialization area of Telecommunications: 16 compulsory and 12 elective courses.
The final grade of each course is based on the studentperformance in various educational activities, such as midterm and final exams, homework assignments and projects, laboratory reports, etc, depending on the course.
2. Work on, write up and successfully defend a Diploma thesis. The Diploma thesis is equivalent to 8 semester courses and is credited with 30 ECTS units.
In addition, students may enroll in a 3-month student internship (work placement), which is offered as an optional course during the 10th semester in all three specialization areas.
Upon successful completion of the programme requirements, the graduate has the knowledge, expertise and skills to design, implement, support and maintain systems and services for the generation, trasmission, distribution, storage, processing, control and utilisation of energy and information.
The Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering discipline entitles its holder to the legally protected professional title of “Engineer” and certifies his/her knowledge and rights to exercise professional work in the field of “generation, transmission, distribution, storage, processing, control and utilisation of energy and information”. Graduates of the ECE School are licensed to exercise the profession of Mechanical-Electrical Engineering by the Techical Chamber of Greece, after passing exams, and the corresponding professional rights according to the existing legislation of the state.

The qualification is a terminal award and allows access to postgraduate studies (2rd and 3rd Cycle).
A scale of 1 to 10 applies to the marks of each subject in the Hellenic Higher Education.
Άριστα (Arista) Excellent: 8.50-10.00
Λίαν Καλώς (Lian Kalos) Very Good : 6.50- 8.49
Καλώς (Kalos) Good : 5.00-6.49
Ανεπιτυχώς (Anepitychos) Fail: 0-4.99
Minimum passing grade : 5

Five years of full-time integrated studies (10 semesters x 13 weeks per semester: 300 to 319 ECTS credits, depending on the elective courses chosen).
ECTS credits are based on the workload students need in order to achieve expected learning outcomes. Workload indicates the time students typically need to complete all learning activities (such as lectures, seminars, projects, self-study, diploma thesis and examinations) required to achieve the expected learning outcomes. 60 ECTS credits are attached to the workload of a fulltime year of formal learning (academic year) and the associated learning outcomes. The student workload ranges from 1500 to 1800 hours for an academic year, whereby one ECTS credit corresponds to 25 to 30 student work load hours.

Full-time, physical presence.

Αλγόριθμος Υπολογισμού του βαθμού διπλώματος

(για φοιτητές που εισήχθησαν από το 2016-17 και μεταγενέστερα)

Αν (Κ) είναι το πλήθος των μαθημάτων που συνυπολογίζονται για την λήψη του διπλώματος (τα μαθήματα που λαμβάνονται υπόψη για τη συμπλήρωση, μαζί με τη διπλωματική εργασία των 300 πιστωτικών μονάδων ECTS), (Σ) το άθροισμα των βαθμών αυτών των (Κ) μαθημάτων και (Δ) ο βαθμός της διπλωματικής εργασίας, τότε ο βαθμός του διπλώματος (Β) θα υπολογίζεται από τη σχέση:

Β= (Σ+6*Δ)/(Κ+6)

Diploma Supplement

In 2012 the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was awarded the Diploma Supplement Label from the the European Commission.

The Diploma Supplement is a personal document attached to a higher education degree,  in order to make it easier for third persons – particularly persons in another country – to understand what the diploma means in terms of knowledge and competences acquired by its holder.

The Diploma Supplement was designed by UNESCO and the Council of Europe and was adopted by the European Parliament in 2004 (Decision No 2241/2004/EC on a single Community framework for the transparency of qualifications and competences).
The Diploma Supplement is a document which provides information on the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were pursued and successfully completed by the individual who holds the original degree to which the DS is attached. It is free from any value judgements, equivalence statements or suggestions about recognition. The Diploma Supplement

  •     does not replace the original degree;
  •     does not give any entitlement to formal recognition of the original diploma by academic authorities of other countries.

The Diploma Supplement was established in article 15 of Law 3374 (Government Gazette A 189/02.08.2005) on “Quality Assurance in Higher Education – Transfer and Accreditation System – Diploma Supplement”.

The Diploma Supplement is issued automatically by all AUTh Faculties and Schools upon completion of a course of studies, free of charge, in both Greek and English.

In the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Diploma Supplement is awarded to the graduates who were admitted to the School from the academic year 2004-05 and after.
