The Department of Informatics and Telecommunications awards doctorate degrees in a wide range of research fields.
PhD candidates are supervised by Department faculty who, as a whole, have extensive research experience internationally in the respective fields of research.
The outcomes of the Department's doctoral research have typically been published in leading conferences and journals by the world's leading scientific bodies in Computer and Telecommunication sciences, such as the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Computer Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
In most cases, PhD candidates are supported through significant public funding (European Union, Ministry of Education, State Scholarships Foundation). The Department's research activities are also enhanced through partnerships with major IT companies in Europe, the US and Asia.
This framework provides excellent conditions for developing high-level doctoral research as it provides the most up-to-date computing equipment (hardware and software) as well as support for regular PhD candidates in leading international conferences in their research areas, presenting the most important developments in the field.
Graduates of the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications often pursue research careers in academia or research centers in Greece and abroad, or work for research / development departments of IT companies worldwide.
