The Study Program in Pervasive and Mobile Computing Systems (Msc) is offered for the first time since academic term 2010-2011.
The PSP aims to systematically train students in issues of design and development of pervasive and mobile computing systems. The PSP will offer students the opportunity to expand their knowledge on issues such as software system design, computer networks, digital systems, human-computer communication, operating systems and distributed systems, from the perspective of pervasive and mobile computing technology and the internet of things. Through emphasis on case studies and practical applications, the PSP aims to provide students with the ability to determine the requirements for and plan pervasive and mobile computing systems and internet of things networks, evaluate and select the suitable technological solution to a given problem, analyze service quality and system performance, and render systems, develop interactive and pervasive applications, services, computing systems, and internet of things systems.
Upon completion of the PSP, students will be able to:
Curriculum Academic Credits (ECTS): 120
Beginning in academic term 2013-14, the minimum study period is 2 academic terms.
UNESCO ISCED-2011 Classification
UNESCO ISCED-2013 Classification
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.
Module Selection Instructions
Students in the first term may select whichever of the two first-term T.U. they wish, SDY50 or SDY51.
Students in the second term must select SDY60 and one additional second-term T.U. Furthermore, students may also elect to prepare their postgraduate diploma thesis in the second term. Students who select SDY61 are awarded a Postgraduate Specialization in “Mobile Computing Systems”, while students who select SDY62 are awarded a Postgraduate Specialization in “Integrated Systems”.
Students who have successfully completed either SDY50 or SDY51 must select the remaining first-term T.U., and may also select SDY60. Students who have successfully completed SDY50, SDY51, and SDY60 must select one additional second-term T.U.
Note that, in order to complete the PSP in two academic terms, students must successfully complete two T.U. in their first term (in accordance with the aforementioned instructions) and an additional two T.U. in their second term, concurrently with the preparation of their postgraduate diploma thesis.
When selecting T.U.s, students must first pass all the available T.U.s that belong to the previous term and then select T.U.s belonging to the next term.
Students may present the Postgraduate Diploma Thesis after successfully completing all the T.U. in the Study Program.
To obtain the postgraduate specialization diploma, students are required to possess a degree or higher education diploma from a similar field, must successfully attend and pass exams in at least four Thematic Units, and prepare a postgraduate diploma thesis, the preparation of which is regulated by the General Regulation for the Preparation of Postgraduate Diploma Thesis.
