New Master programmes from the International Hellenic University

In response to the need for competent specialists in the fields of technology and culture and recognising their critical role in the new economy, the International Hellenic University (IHU) has designed two new, specialist postgraduate programmes, starting next October 2010: the Master of Science in Energy Systems and the Master of Science in Information and Communication Technology Systems, offered by the School of Science and Technology.
These new postgraduate programmes, taught entirely in English, are expected to make a significant contribution to meeting educational and training needs and social and economic requirements in the wider region of Southeast Europe. The programmes are designed to provide prospective students with novel and competitive skills for the current job market, as well as innovative research opportunities.
The main focus of the programmes is to provide students specialist training, according to their scientific and professional interests. In the first semester of the 12-month programme, students take the core courses considered essential for their area of study. In the second semester, students choose a more specific area of specialisation and can select courses from a range of subjects available for their chosen area of specialisation. During the third semester, students undertake their masters project/dissertation under the supervision of a member of the university’s academic staff on a subject chosen in cooperation with the supervisor.
The teaching staff on the postgraduate programmes comprises academics of international repute from universities in Greece and abroad.
Further information on the programmes of study is available on the website the school ( Prospective candidates can also take the opportunity to attend one of the respective information events organised by the university. They are also welcome to visit the university, booking an appointment in advance. The university teaching facilities are located at the 14th km Thessaloniki-Nea Moudania Road (Thermi Bridge).
The application process is now open for the next academic year, 2010-2011. Applicants receive an answer within ten (10) working days of the university receiving their complete application. Applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year until places are filled.
The IHU offers a number of scholarships based on a combination of objective criteria including academic excellence, past experience, and financial need.
