Electrical and Electronic Engineers are at the core of modern technology and the graduates of related disciplines are in high demand both in the local and in the international market. In particular, a professional engineer deals with the analysis, design and manufacturing of all kinds of electrical and electronic systems at the level of machines or larger installations. Topics on Electrical Engineering-related problems are associated with large-scale electrical systems such as production/power transmission, electrical installations and electrical machinery control systems. Topics relating to Electronic Engineering are smaller-scale sub-systems (e.g. microprocessors) that become part of larger system (e.g. environmental monitoring and automation).
The area of professional activity of Electrical and Electronic Engineers is broad, and covers a series of diverse applications, including power electronics, optoelectronics, electronics, automation, computers, artificial intelligence, signal processing, telecommunications and renewable energy sources. The curriculum of Electrical Engineering and Electronic Systems is adapted to the needs of the Greek industry, provides the fundamental knowledge and theory of the science and trains the students in order to successfully put this knowledge into practice, whilst being fully in line with the curriculum of the British partner university.
The programme is largely participatory and includes compulsory theoretical courses as well as laboratory courses, conducted at Metropolitan College’s fully equipped laboratory installations. It is an undergraduate programme that provides standard and superior knowledge and educates students to successfully put this knowledge into practice. The curriculum focuses on the implementation of theoretical aspects with a view to designing fully functional systems.
