Welcome Note

Ηλίας Μαγκλογιάννης

Welcome to the web pages of the School of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) of the University of Piraeus.

ICT is moving from a classic perimeter approach – in the context of “supporting” technologies, to an approach that characterizes them as necessary technologies at professional, personal and social levels. The growing digital world economy, the digital governance, the e-learning, the e-health, and the 4th Industrial Revolution are representative examples.

The ICT School

The ICT School of the University of Piraeus as an educational and research ecosystem successfully responds to the continuous evolving and growing educational and research challenges, being timely adapted to address them.

Towards excellence, the undergraduate and postgraduate programs of the ICT School’s Departments have been structured in a way that makes them modern and flexible in order to be constantly improved and adapted to new educational and research developments. They offer students cognitive background and skills, contributing to a high level of scientific education and specialization.

An additional pillar of activities is the conduct of cutting-edge research in the objects tackled by the Departments of the School. Innovative results of basic, applied and technological scientific research, international collaborations, European collaborative research projects, and in general the overall scientific activity rank the School among the top ones in Europe.

With respect to its academic character, the ICT School focuses on the development of strategic collaborations and seeks to contribute to the dissemination of knowledge by strengthening the cooperation with institutions, agencies and companies at national and international levels.

All the aforementioned are feasible through a coherent and productive ecosystem of educators, researchers, students and administrative staff. The School is staffed by Faculty Members with internationally recognized academic and research activity, Laboratory Teaching Members, Special Technical Teaching Members and Scientific Associates who contribute to the multi-dimensional activities of the School, as well as the Administrative Staff that supports all these activities.

We urge you to browse the School’s web pages to be informed about our educational and research programs, and to become aware of our scientific, teaching, research and development activities.

This student community aims to inform fellow students in “Open Source” technologies (indicatively: “Linux Beginners”, “Web Developers”, “Arduino Developers” etc). This is done through regular seminars and lectures that are being organized.

IEEE Society

IEEE University of Piraeus Student Branch (IEEE SB)

The University of Piraeus IEEE Student Branch was officially founded on July the 12th 2004. The formation of this student branch would not have been possible had it not been the 25 undergraduate and 3 doctoral students from the Department of Digital Systems, whom they formed the inaugural functional core along with the scientific counselor of the team Prof. Athanasios Kanatas. The student branch from the first day of its run was actively present and attended several nationwide meetings from similar student groups, as well as in the 1st and 2nd Greek-Turkish meeting which took place at the Democritus University of Thrace in Xanthi and Bogazici University in Istanbul respectively. Its role among others was to organize a significant number of technological and professional speeches and some mini workshops to educate and inform its members on innovative developments in the research and technology fields. Often, it has organized educational trips and visits to companies and institutions engaged in the areas of research and development as well as in the production and distribution of technologically advanced services such as the visit in the Thermopylae Satellite Ground Station owned by the Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE). Finally, the student branch is trying in every way possible to assist and engage its members in activities for conveying knowledge and developing healthy competition through various international competitions organized by the IEEE regularly, in some of which the IEEE SB has participated.
