In this page you can learn about the structure and operating rules of the Ph.D. Programme of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Hellenic Mediterranean University. The Doctoral studies of the Department aim to promote original scientific research and lead to the acquisition of a Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree.
The Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree is an academic title, which certifies that the holder has elaborated an original scientific research study and has substantially contributed to the development of knowledge in the respective scientific field.
The Doctoral (Ph.D.) Programme of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Hellenic Mediterranean University is structured and operated in accordance with the provisions of Law 4485/2017 and the general institutional framework as in force. Its regulation has also been approved and published by the Senate in Government Gazette B 3400/5-9-2019. Once a year, the Teaching and Research Staff members, as well as Professors who have the right to supervise a Doctoral (Ph.D.) Candidate, submit proposals with indicative topics of Doctoral Dissertations. Proposed topics should be accompanied by a statement of their originality as well as the resources required and the funding, if any. Based on the proposals, the Department will then announce the available Ph.D. candidate positions in the research fields of the indicative topics. The relevant notices may include special terms, deadlines and implementation procedures, additional obligations, clauses, deliverables, additional procedures and criteria, in addition to those required by this Regulation. These announcements are posted on the website of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as the University website.
Alternatively, anyone interested in conducting Ph.D. research in a specific field can submit an individual candidacy during the academic year. They should, however, first be accepted by a Teaching and Research Staff member, or a researcher with the right to supervise a Ph.D. candidate.
