The Programme
The Programme is based on an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the history and culture of the Black Sea and the Easter Mediterranean region. The study and interpretation of the historical and cultural data of these regions, areas of great geopolitical and economic importance, will provide the student with an outstanding opportunity to specialize in a research domain of such significance in our times.

The Black Sea region and the Eastern Mediterranean basin with their special geophysical and cultural characteristics, are gaining significance as a geopolitical link between Europe and Asia. The important natural resources and the crucial position of these regions at the hub of international routes have aroused the interest of many nations over the ages, leading to numerous events of great cultural and historical significance.

The Black Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean constitute two great international gateways, of considerable importance for Europe as well as for Asia and the East. Over the last few decades, research institutions and university departments all over the world have promoted research programmes concentrating on these regions with such rich scientific material.

The MA in Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean Studies provides specialised education in diverse areas of interest such as Archaeology, Ethnography, Historical Geography, Art, Religion, Mythology, Ancient and Modern History, International Relations, Politics, Diplomacy and Economy. The Master’s Programme ‘MA in Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean Studies’ promotes learning and teaching characterized by a diversity of teaching methods.

School of Science and Technology

Overview
The MSc in Data Science Programme is being offered by the School of Science & Technology of the University Center of International Programmes of Studies of the International Hellenic University. The programme aims to provide graduate level education with an interdisciplinary approach as regards the management, visualization and processing of big data as well as the relevant computational techniques and technologies and is targeted towards graduates and professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge in the field. For almost half a century now, the world has been producing and collecting data in digital form. However, the past decade hardware and network advances have allowed for very large, cost-effective storage and powerful processing as well as fast transfer speeds. At the same time, scientists have been developing software tools for the analysis of big and complex data, to extract valuable knowledge from them. The goal of data scientists is to make sense of large volumes of different forms of real-world data that may come from the entire spectrum of human activity. Data Science nowadays is an “umbrella term” that encompasses a variety of scientific fields. Essentially, it is an interdisciplinary field that combines a multitude of different disciplines, some of the most important being the following:

  • Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
  • Statistics & Mathematics
  • Database and Big Data technology
  • Software Development & Algorithmics

However, the above list is not exhaustive, as a data scientist often needs to employ other skills, such as hacking, coding, critical thinking, problem understanding etc. All those make the job of the data scientist to be a mashup of different skills that are rarely found together. Students who apply for the MSc in Data Science of the International Hellenic University, are mainly graduates with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) or an Economics degree, who have a background in statistics and a good knowledge of fundamental concepts of databases and programming. The courses of the programme are taught exclusively in English. The academic staff comes from Universities in Greece and abroad.

The Programme
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Systems have been a main driver of technological innovation during recent decades and now play a pivotal role in all aspects of modern life. Professionals who are experts in ICT Systems are therefore in constant demand. In order to really stand out in today’s job market ICT professionals need a combination of technical, managerial and interdisciplinary skills from different sectors of the economy, as well as exposure to an international environment. The International Hellenic University (IHU) offers just such a highly diverse graduate programme. In a fully English-speaking environment, our MSc in ICT Systems students learn to excel in their technical skills while also acquiring grounding in managerial skills as these apply in a number of different areas including healthcare, the financial sector and the green economy. The lecture series by leading academic instructors from Greece and abroad, together with projects and dissertation work, mean that students graduate well equipped and highly competitive at international level.

This programme is designed for those University graduates of Informatics/Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and also Natural Sciences departments, who wish to acquire a competitive edge in the rapidly converging information and telecommunication technologies market.

The Structure
The MSc in ICT Systems (full-time) is a 14-month programme taught over three terms. Lectures mainly take place on weekday evenings. The MSc in ICT Systems programme is also available in part-time mode over 26 months for those who cannot commit to a full-time programme either for work or other reasons.

Upon arrival at the IHU all students follow an intensive foundation course titled “Applied Mathematics in ICT” that aims to bring all incoming students to the same level with respect to some of the mathematics knowledge that is required to excel in the programme. During the first term, all students are required to attend five mandatory core courses. During the second term, all students follow a further three required courses and a combination of two elective courses. Finally, during the third term, work is dedicated exclusively to the Master’s dissertation.

Overview
The MSc in Mobile and Web Computing Programme is being offered by the School of Science & Technology of the University Center of International Programmes of Studies of the International Hellenic University. The programme aims to provide graduate level education and is targeted towards graduates who wish to broaden their knowledge in the field of Information and Communication Technology Systems and specifically web and mobile applications. Since its invention in 1989, the World Wide Web has long been the main driver of development and progress, not only in the ICT sector itself but also, and most importantly, in virtually all aspects of human life. Standing on the shoulders of the WWW’s success, the introduction of smartphones brought about a new technological revolution, which many had foreseen as a necessary next step. Today, these two technological fields have converged into a common track, where applications and infrastructure are advancing hand-in-hand toward the vision of Ubiquitous Computing and Web 3.0. In our effort to address this trend we introduce the “MSc in Mobile and Web Computing’ programme. It has been designed to provide a mixture of state-of-the-art knowledge in relevant computer science, communications, web and mobile technologies, blended with essential business skills.
