The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering

1 Mission
The mission of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering is

(a)    to offer higher education engineering studies in the discipline of Electrical and Electronics through undergraduate and graduate curricula and a PhD program;
(b)    to generate novel knowledge and to advance science and technology in the relevant fields, both independently and within national and international/European research collaborations;
(c)    to contribute to the development of regional and national production, economy and society through initiatives and outreach activities towards public and private institutions.


2 Why should I choose this Department for my studies?
Academic staffing – Sustainability – Safeguarding of the diploma value


The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering is the biggest one among the Departments in the Faculty of Engineering and in the University of West Attica. It is also the best staffed Department in the University of West Attica and one of the better staffed Departments/Schools of Engineering in the whole country.
Today, the Department boasts a body of sixty six (66) professors of all grades who cover the lecture needs of all taught courses in the curriculum. They are aided by eleven (11) members of teaching staff (EDIP), nine (9) members of technical staff (ETEP) and a small number of adjunct personnel hired yearly to offer laboratory assistance. Curriculum instruction needs, both in lectures and laboratories, are thus fully covered, a condition that guarantees the sustainability of the Department and safeguards the value of the diploma held by our graduates.

Engineering Studies – 5-year Curriculum

The curriculum offered by the Department corresponds to a well-established, recognized and broad engineering discipline, that of Electrical and Electronics – a field where research and innovation keep producing novel and impressive results that directly affect production, economy and our daily life. Thanks to the high academic standards of the faculty and staff members, the Department maintains a state-of-the-art level in this discipline. The undergraduate curriculum offered today covers 5 years (10 academic semesters) in full-time study mode and gives to the graduate the knowledge, skills and competence necessary to meet current job or graduate study requirements as well as future challenges.

Graduate Studies – MSc programs

The Department organizes and offers five (5) independent Master of Science Study Programs with a current enrollment of around one hundred (100) graduate students. The MSc programs are offered either free of charge or on reasonable tuition and fees, while many students are supported by grants. Follow the link of each MSc Program to find out all relevant information:

    MSc in Management and Optimization of Energy Systems
    MSc in The Internet of Thing and Intelligent Environments
    MSc in Data Communications and Networking
    MSc in Audio, Video and Broadcasting Engineering
    MSc by Research in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
MSc in Artificial Intelligence & Deep Learning




Since 2005, the Department is part of a collaboration led by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens that offers the joint program

•    MSc in Information and Communication Technologies for Education

Graduate Studies – PhD Program

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering is leading the organization and offer of 3rd cycle studies for a PhD within the University of West Attica. Fifty (50) PhD students are already enrolled and carry out research towards a PhD, under the supervision of the Department faculty. Our PhD students are the breeding ground expected to yield a new generation of scientists and researchers; as such, they are encourage to get actively involved in all education and research activities of the Department. Intake is twice per academic year (September and February), through open calls. Follow this link for more details on our PhD Studies Regulation.

Research and Innovation

The Department is intensively active in research and innovation and is strongly involved in collaborations at the national (NCSR “Demokritos”, Hellenic Emerging Technologies Industry Association (HETiA), Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES), Hellas Public Power Corporation, etc.) and at the international level (Horizon-2020, CERN, Columbia University, Carnegie-Mellon University, etc.) This is the first Greek University Department to be accepted as an Associated Technical Institute by the international ATLAS Collaboration at CERN. Today research and development activities are hosted in the eleven (11) departmental Research Laboratories (follow links to the respective webpages); our undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to early participate in all relevant activities.

European/International Perspective

The Department makes a special effort to warrantee the European/international scientific and/or professional perspective of the graduates, through the adoption of the ECTS, the participation in ERASMUS+ exchanges, the participation in academic and research exchanges through bilateral agreements with countries that excel in engineering studies (Germany – DAAD, Japan, Korea, etc.). The Department encourages students, faculty and staff to take active part in ERASMUS+ exchanges, with excellent results: this is the top Department in the University of West Attica as to the number of completed exchanges, under both learning and training agreements.
