Career development

Graduates of the five-year undergraduate program of study of the Department of Information and Electronic Engineering, thanks to their scientific expertise and technical skills, have great potential for career development and can be employed in the private and public sector, either individually or in collaboration with other scientists, in fields related to:

  • Analysis, design, development and management of information systems, databases, business, web and value-added multimedia applications, including security and privacy aspects.
  • Analysis, design, development, programming and maintenance of small- and large-scale software systems, intelligent systems, real-time systems, user-computer interfaces and image analysis and synthesis software.
  • Design, development and maintenance of electronic devices and systems, integrated circuits, embedded systems, and computer hardware.
  • Study, development and management of electronic communication systems, networks and services and Internet of Things systems.
  • Design and production studies, construction and supervision of structures, and maintenance of telecommunications, audiovisual and broadcasting systems and devices, protection and fire safety, measurement equipment, power electronics, automatic control, computers, and medical instruments.
  • Conduct standardized tests and measurements, analyze, model and interpret experimental data, and apply experimental results to improve production processes.
  • Conducting, individually or as members of committees, assessments and provide expert opinions on electronic devices, systems and installations, evaluation of tenders of any kind of electronic equipment and controls in respective crafts and industries.

The great potential for career development of our graduates is documented both in studies at national, European and global level, which predict that in the coming years there will be a great shortage in the specialized professions included in the aforementioned sectors, and by the current continuous and constantly increasing demand for graduates of the Department from companies in the fields of Informatics and Electronics.

Indicatively, a survey recently conducted by Deloitte on behalf of the Hellenic Association of Information Technology and Communications Enterprises, shows that by 2030 the Greek market will require 300,000 graduates of the sector who will contribute to the country’s digital transformation resulting in a supply / demand gap for highly specialized scientists estimated to 7,000-7,500 employees per year for the period 2023-2030.

The increased interest of companies in the field is also confirmed by the substantial number of jobs offered in Internship and Labor Market Liaison Days organized twice a year by the Department. Indicatively, 36 technology-oriented companies participated in the event held on February 11, 2023, where they presented their corporate profile and employment opportunities offered to students and graduates.
