This programme is validated by the University of Derby and aims to provide students with a solid background in Mechanical Engineering, while offering the opportunity to specialise and apply the principles of mechanical design, modelling and management. Graduates may obtain the license to practice the profession as Incorporated Engineers (IEng) and if they continue towards postgraduate studies, they can apply for full professional rights as Chartered Engineers.

The course consists of 20-credits module and a 40-credit diploma thesis in the final year. The first two years are taught and assessed in Greek and the remaining two are taught and assessed in English.

Students are expected to work on real projects and case studies and participate in field trips to worksites and workshops, so as to apply in practice everything they have learnt in class and develop the knowledge and skills the industry requires from graduate engineers.


Graduates of the programme, according to the Greek law, are holders of an accredited university degree, professionally equivalent to those awarded by Greek State Higher Education Institutions. If they wish so, they can have their degree recognised by the Greek authorities. 

Being graduates of an accredited UK University, they are eligible to apply for the Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status with the UK Engineering Council. If they continue their studies towards a Master’s degree and also secure some work experience, they will be eligible to upgrade their status into a Chartered Engineer, with full professional rights both in the UK and in Greece. See for further information.

After successfully completing the programme, graduates may continue for a Master’s degree at Mediterranean College or at overseas universities. Alternatively, they can seek employment.
