The studies at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) of the Technical University of Crete are aimed at the education and high-level technical training of engineers in modern technology subjects found in the fields of IT, electronics and computer architecture, telecommunications, electric energy systems, and automatic control systems. Its purpose is for the students to acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge which will allow them to understand in depth the fundamental principles of new technologies in all the above areas, so that they can adapt and follow easily any new developments in any sector.
The ECE School's Undergraduate Studies Program covers extensively the above subjects via a combination of compulsory and elective courses. These courses build on the basic knowledge of Mathematics, Physics, and Programming, provided in the first years of studies, and cover both in breadth and depth the scientific subject of ECE.
Beyond the education fundamentals, an important goal of the ECE School is the exposure of students to research. This is accomplished through the teaching of highly specialized and modern subjects (e.g., Biotechnology, Machine Learning – Big Data, Reconfigurable Systems, Wireless Communications, VLSI Systems, Optoelectronics, Parallel and Distributed Computing and Algorithms, Information Theory and Coding, etc.).
The graduates of the ECE School (1) continue for graduate or Doctoral studies at universities in Greece or abroad, (2) are employed in high-tech companies, (3) create start-up companies, (4) work in public services, and (5) work as freelancers.
The professional rights of Graduate Electrical Engineers are determined by Law 6422/1934 on the exercise of the profession of Mechanical-Electrical Engineer, together with the relevant Royal or Presidential decrees.
