Doctoral Education in the EEE Department

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering has been operating a Doctoral Studies Program since September 2018. The primary purpose of the Doctoral Studies Program is the emergence of Researchers, Engineers and Scientists, who can take on a leading role in Research and Development on an international level.

The fact that the actual in-depth knowledge of science and technology can generate substantial progress and development has been the starting point for the efforts of our Department, which has advanced the doctoral studies in combination with the execution of important research projects within their framework.

The regulation that governs the Doctoral Studies Program of the Department is published in the official gazette of the Hellenic Republic Issue B’ 4658/18.10.2018.


Admission to the doctoral program

The admission of new doctoral candidates takes place twice in a year. An announcement on available positions typically appears in February and September. The submission of applications is followed by an evaluation process, which ends up with the selection of the new doctoral students. For detailed admission requirements and procedures, please consult the Regulation to Doctoral Studies (in Greek).


Funding sources

Because of the highly demanding nature of the doctoral program, it is advised for doctoral candidates to be funded by resources connected, either directly or indirectly, to their research activity. The Department, therefore, provides the following platforms for funding its doctoral candidates:

  1. Participation in research projects: These are competitive projects, executed using state-of-the-art cutting-edge technologies usually funded by the European Union, the Greek General Secretariat for Research and Innovation, Private entities, or the University of West Attica (UniWA).
  2. Scholarships granted by UniWA: A number of scholarships are granted on a regular and competitive basis from the University itself. The institution responsible for managing these funds is the Management Committee of the Special Account for Research Grants of UniWA.
  3. Scholarships granted by third-party Institutions: such can be, the State Scholarships Foundation (IKY), the National Center for Scientific Research - Democritos, the Eugenides, Onassis and Bodossaki foundations etc. Available scholarship sources are listed on the website of UniWA Career Office.
  4. International Conference participation funding: Every year, the UniWA funds a number of doctoral candidates for publishing and presenting  their research work at international conferences.
  5. Stipends for the provision of ancillary work: Ancillary work by doctoral candidates is provisioned and rewarded according to the decisions of the UniWA Senate and the University’s regulations. Further information on funding sources for doctoral studies can be obtained by contacting the Secretariat for Post-Graduate Studies.
