The MSc in Data Science Program is being offered by the School of Science & Technology of the University Center of International Programs of Studies of the International Hellenic University. 

The program 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.

technical as well as economics/management/law related. 

The International Hellenic University offers just such a diverse MSc in Energy Building Design program that is open to candidates from different academic disciplines. Leading academics from prestigious academic institutions from Greece and abroad, together with instructors from public authorities and key players from energy-related organizations, will teach in this program.

The program has been developed to equip graduates of Engineering, Geotechnical and Natural Sciences departments with an in-depth understanding within the area of energy-efficient and environmental building design in order to significantly contribute to and influence the design, building or renovation of energy-efficient buildings, taking into consideration the architecture and environment, the inhabitants’ behavior and needs, their health and comfort as well as the overall economy. This program is designed for University graduates in engineering as well as graduates of other study programs with a suitable qualification who wish to deepen and extend their knowledge in the Energy Design of buildings, such as Engineering, Geotechnical and Natural Sciences departments. 

The School of Science and Technology during the last 3-years had an educational collaboration funded by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), with Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH – Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg) in order to provide common courses in their respective Master of Science in the field of Energy. 

In the frame of this collaboration, students of the MSc in Energy Systems were given the opportunity to follow an elective course in TUHH, which was specifically developed and offered in the academic years 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 to Master students of both universities. Similarly, master students of TUHH in the field of Energy were also able to follow a specifically developed elective course at IHU. Furthermore, students of IHU were given the opportunity to visit TUHH for 3 months and conduct their MSc thesis in Germany. All travel costs, living expenses and accommodation for students in Greece and Germany were covered by the Greek-German collaboration project.

The International Hellenic University offers just such a diverse MSc in Energy Systems program that is open to candidates from different academic disciplines and which has been in high demand since its first intake of students in 2010. Leading academics from prestigious academic institutions from Greece and abroad, together with instructors from public authorities and key players from energy-related organizations, have taught in this program in the past years.

The program has been developed to equip graduates of Engineering, Geotechnical and Natural Sciences departments with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental issues of energy in the industrial and commercial sectors. 

It provides up-to-date technical knowledge and skills required for achieving energy management, designing  energy-efficient systems and processes, utilization of renewable energy sources and the cost-effective reduction and control of pollution. 

This program is designed for University graduates of Engineering, Geotechnical and Natural Sciences departments who wish to gain further expertise in the engineering aspects of the Energy sector.  The School of Science and Technology during the last 3-years had an educational collaboration funded by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), with Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH – Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg) in order to provide common courses in their respective Master of Science in the field of Energy.

In the frame of this collaboration, students of the MSc in Energy Systems were given the opportunity to follow an elective course in TUHH, which was specifically developed and offered in the academic years 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 to Master students of both universities. Similarly, master students of TUHH in the field of Energy were also able to follow a specifically developed elective course at IHU. Furthermore, students of IHU were given the opportunity to visit TUHH for 3 months and conduct their MSc thesis in Germany. All travel costs, living expenses and accommodation for students in Greece and Germany were covered by the Greek-German collaboration project.
