The MSc “Acoustic Design and Digital Sound” aims at the in-depth study of topics that are part of acoustic science and are widely used in theoretical and practical – applied level in the scientific field of acoustic design, focusing on both art and sound technology issues. Emphasis is placed on the use of modern methods of sound management, measurement, analysis and processing based on digital and computer technology.
The MSc aims at the specialization of scientists able to engage in research or professional activity in the broader field of sound technology, sound engineering, acoustic design of buildings and installations, as well as in noise protection issues. The MSc offers comprehensive and up-to-date scientific knowledge in the above-mentioned field of knowledge, so that its graduates will be able to support similar applications that often arise in their professional or artistic activities.
Upon completion of the programme, students will be able to:

The language of instruction of the MSc is Greek.
The Post-graduate programme accepts graduates or higher institution diplomas of related disciplines. The programme is offered in Greek.
The knowledge of a foreign language and good computer-Internet skills would be useful for the successful participation in the programme.
Holders of a degree or diploma of higher education means graduates of Greek Universities or Polytechnics or Higher School of Fine Arts or Higher School of Pedagogical and Technological Education or Higher Technological Educational Institutions (ATEI) or those who hold academically equivalent first cycle degrees from recognized foreign educational institutions with the degrees awarded by the Greek Higher Educational Institutions, in accordance with the provisions of article 304 of Law No. 4957/2022 (Government Gazette 141/21.07.2022, vol.)
For the evaluation of the application to the Postgraduate Studies Programme, it will be examined whether the candidate’s institution of study is or may be included in the National Register of Recognised Higher Education Institutions of Foreign Countries and whether the candidate’s degree is or may be included in the National Register of Types of Degrees of Recognised Institutions of Foreign Countries.
The Hellenic Open University, if the degree is included in the list of article 307 of Law No. 4957/2022, must request a “Certificate of Place of Study”, which is issued and sent by the foreign university. If the place of study or part of the studies is confirmed as the Greek territory, the degree is not recognized, unless the part of the studies that took place in the Greek territory is in a public higher education institution or in a recognized foreign educational institution within the meaning of paragraph b) of article 299 of Law No. 4957/2022.
Guidelines on Module selection
During the first year of studies, it is recommended that students (if they have sufficient time) choose all three modules ASP50, ASP51 and ASP60. If they choose one module, then this should be ASP50, while if they choose two modules then these should be ASP50 and ASP51. As a reminder, students may choose for full-time study one up to three modules per academic year as long as they do not exceed 60 ECTS per year.
In the second year, if students choose one module, this should be ASP61. In order to choose the module ASP61, students must either have successfully completed ASP60 or select them both simultaneously.
In the process of declaring Modules, the Modules of the previous year must be exhausted first and then the declaration of the next year’s Modules must begin.
The preparation of the Postgraduate Diploma Thesis presupposes the successful completion of the modules ASP50, ASP51 and ASP60 of the programme. The presentation of the Postgraduate Diploma Thesis takes place after the successful completion of all the modules.
The successful completion of four Modules and the Postgraduate Diploma Thesis is mandatory for the award of the Master’s degree.
