The aim of this course, according to the founding decree, is to train scientists in computer science and to acquire knowledge and skills relating to specific application areas in the field of computer science, such as computer systems, decision systems, signal processing, computational mathematics and telematics.
The undergraduate programme of studies “Computer Science” (PLI ) of the Hellenic Open University is a course structured on the foundational and modern achievements of computer science. The aim of the course is to make its graduates (a) skilled in computer science, (b) capable of participating in a key role in the development and management of information and communication systems, mainly in the IT industry/market of Greece. The multitude of units of the course and the breadth of its subjects make it capable of providing students with the general principles of science and helping them to understand and assimilate new technologies, tools and systems in the future. In the first years, a set of compulsory units covering the core of computing are offered, while in the final year of studies, students can choose units based on personal and professional interests. Studying the course leads to a state recognised computer science degree with full professional rights.
Upon successful completion of the programme students will be able to:
ECTS Credits of the Programme of Studies: 240
Classification according to ISCED-2011 of Unesco:
Classification according to ISCED-2013 of Unesco:
Graduates of High Schools or holders of corresponding or similar secondary education degrees earned either abroad or in Greece.
Knowledge of a foreign language as well as familiarity with the use of computers, e-mail, and the Internet will significantly facilitate participation in the program.
OM²: Optional Mandatory
O³ : Optional
In order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to complete 12 modules, the two-cycle Digital Systems Laboratory courses and the PLIPRO Laboratory course.
Guidelines on Module selection
During the first year of studies you can choose from one (1) up to four (4) first-year’s modules/laboratory courses. If the student chooses one, it is mandatory to choose the Laboratory Module PLIPRO: Programming, while if he/she wishes to choose a second one, it must be the Module PLI10: Introduction to Informatics. Due to the fact that PLIPRO is considered as not very demanding (6 ECTS), it is highly recommended students to choose this module in combination with PLI10. If he/she chooses three, it is recommended to choose in addition to PLI10 also PLI12: Mathematics for Informatics I, while if he/she has the required time and wishes to choose four, he/she can choose PLI11: Principles of Software Technology. The student cannot, however, attend PLI11 or PLI12 if he/she does not simultaneously attend the module PLI10.
During the module selection, all modules from previous academic years must be selected and consequently the selection of the modules of the next academic year can begin.
The maximum number of ECTS declared for modules/laboratory courses with full obligations cannot exceed 60 each academic year.
The Laboratory Thematic Unit (LTU) “Digital Systems Laboratory Course” (PLI LAB I, PLI LAB IΙ) is a compulsory LTU of two study cycles, each one lasting one academic year. The first study cycle is offered in the 2nd academic year and the second study cycle in the 3rd academic year. It is not permitted to attend the PLI LAB I and PLI LAB IΙ laboratory courses at the same time. Students who have completed or are studying in parallel the module PLI21 are entitled to attend the laboratory course. In order to enroll in the second study cycle, students must either have completed PLI LAB I or have acquired the right to take part in the PLI LAB I examination.
In the fourth year of studies it is compulsory to attend one of the following modules: PLI23, PLI40, PLI42 και PLI47.
The maximum number of ECTS declared for new modules/laboratory courses cannot exceed 60 each academic year.
The following sequence of prerequisite modules is defined.
Students may declare together PLI12 and PLI20 or PLI20 and PLI30, if they have declared during the previous academic year PLI12 or PLI20 respectively and repeat it only to take part in the final examinations.
Students are permitted to choose the module PLI40 only if they have completed in previous academic years or will complete in the current academic year (simultaneously with it) at least 11 other modules.
