National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

History

University & Society

The idea of establishing a University in Greece emerged alongside with the Greek War of Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution. The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, officially founded in April 14th, 1837, is the first University not only of Greece but both the Balkan peninsula and the Eastern Mediterranean region.

Vision

The vision of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) is based on four main principles: research, education and training shall be characterized by a quest for high quality and distinction; the University’s leading role shall be safeguarded by a constant engagement to innovation and creativity; the academic community members shall participate actively in scientific, social and cultural events; our standpoints shall reflect our historical and contemporary Greek culture worldwide through scientific activities.

Mission and Policy

NKUA is a research University and, as a leader since 1837, it aims to advance knowledge and educate students in sciences and arts that will best serve the nation and the community of the twenty first century.

Committed to innovation and academic excellence, we seek to infuse each member of our academic community with the passion of research and knowledge gain. We encourage cultivation of creativity, maturation of social and cultural sensibilities as well as critical thinking, by supporting free and open dialogue and a culture of integrity and diversity.

School Of Law | Department Of Law

Our new LL.M. in International and European Law, taught entirely in English, builds on the very successful LL.M. programme we have created in the Athens Law School in the past ten years. It is an intensive Master’s programme, which provides students with an in-depth understanding of International and European Union Law in both their theoretical and practical aspects.

The Programme covers a single academic year, in the course of which students must successfully complete two semesters of core, mandatory taught modules while conducting research, under the supervision of our Faculty, leading to an original item of written work in the form of a dissertation.

For the successful completion of the Programme students must obtain 75 ECTS. The taught part of the LL.M. Programme is divided into two semesters – winter and spring. In each semester, students are offered two core and many optional modules. They must attend two core and one optional module in each semester (30 ECTS in total), chosen from a list of modules which cover the most important legal issues in their specialization.

The remaining credits (15 ECTS) are covered by the successful submission of the LL.M. dissertation, on a subject of the student’s choice, often related to one or more of the modules taught, supervised by an academic staff member. Students choose the subject of their thesis during the first or second semester of their studies, upon consultation with their academic supervisor. The dissertation must be written by each student individually and must be the result of their original scientific research. It is written in English, though a student may also write the dissertation in another working language of the programme (German and French), after having obtained the consent of their academic supervisor. Students will present their research before a 3-member academic panel, who will grade the dissertation.

The LL.M. course starts on 1 October and lasts until early June. The written or oral examinations take place in February and June, upon completion of each semester. Students may re-sit a failed examination in September following the end of the academic year. The Master thesis shall be submitted by 30 September of the year during which the spring semester takes place.

The LL.M. Programme in International and European Legal Studies is the first one-year graduate programme taught entirely in English at the Athens Law School. It is an intensive master’s Programme which provides its students with an in-depth understanding and a hands-on knowledge of both European Private Law as well as International and European Law. Our students will benefit from the strong network and various activities of the European Law School and its participating Universities, comprising of the Humboldt Universität in Berlin, King’s College, La Sapienza University in Rome, the University of Amsterdam and the Universidade Católica Portuguesa in Lisbon (https://www.european-law-school.eu/en/universities-of-the-network).

The LL.M. programme consists of two separate LLM Courses:

a) the LLM in Private Law and Business Transactions and

b) the LLM in International and European Law.

In the Private Law and Business Transactions course, students will be offered a wide variety of intensive modules which cover the whole range of modern private transactions, with a particular focus on the developments of EU legislation and case law. It seeks to provide students with a solid doctrinal and practical background which would allow them to successfully cope with the ever-demanding academic and professional environment, while developing their careers at the highest level of national and international practice.

The LLM course International and European Law provides students with a firm theoretical and practical foundation in the fields of Public International Law (PIL) and/or European Union Law (EUL). When more than 3/4 of the chosen subjects belong to either direction, their final degree will have the corresponding specialisation – otherwise, the final degree awarded will be an LL.M. in International & European Law. In addition to their coursework, students may also participate in moot court competitions and law clinics and have the opportunity to engage with the international community from all over the world.

In order to obtain the LL.M. degree, students must successfully complete two semesters and write a dissertation in a field of their choice, under the supervision of our academic staff.

Under Law 4485/17, a Postgraduate Diploma is not awarded to a student whose first degree from a foreign institution has not been recognized by the Interdisciplinary Organization of Recognition of Academic Titles and Information (Διεπιστημονικό Οργανισμό Αναγνώρισης Τίτλων Ακαδημαϊκών και Πληροφόρησης (Δ.Ο.Α.Τ.Α.Π.), according to Law 3328/2005 (A 80).

For the evaluation and selection of candidates the Selection Committee applying the law (4485/2017), additional criteria defined by the competent bodies, as well as the decisions of the Special Interdepartmental Committee, takes into consideration the documents described below as well as the performance in the interview.

The Interdepartmental postgraduate program MSc “Social Neuroscience, Social Pedagogy and Education” is delivered by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) coordinated by the Department of Primary Education (DPE) in collaboration with the School of Medicine and the Faculty of Biology.

The MSc has been re-established, as an interdepartmental, of its previous postgraduate course led exclusively by the DPE, with the same title, which operated from 2015 to 2019 (after three successful cycles) and had high evaluation and demand as well as remarkable research work and publications by its students and graduates. During all three cycles, the instructional design and lectures were delivered in collaboration with the School of Medicine and the Faculty of Biology.

The MSc “Social Neuroscience, Social Pedagogy and Education” aims to bridge Education and Neuroscience, with its innovative interdisciplinary objectives that respond to the multidisciplinary demands and variables of education, pedagogy, and society, in a multicultural world, providing high level of education and training to its students.

School Of Science | Department of Informatics and Telecommunications

The rapid advances in the fields of Data Science, Machine learning, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and their widespread use in the Life Sciences (biology, biotechnology, medicine) create new challenges but also exciting new career opportunities for dynamic graduates with different backgrounds (computer science, engineering, mathematics, biology, biotechnology, pharmacology, medicine, and so on) who are eager to deepen their understanding in these important and fast developing fields.

The Master’s Program “Data Science and Information Technologies (DSIT)” is by its very nature intensely interdisciplinary. Its objective is to strengthen the skills of its students with an emphasis in Data Science, Big Data, AI, applied mathematics, statistical methods, as well as their applications in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Biomedical Data Science, and the Life Sciences in general. The Program focuses on subjects related to the management, processing, analysis, and software for massive or complex data, in addition to machine learning and AI technologies, as well as on mathematical models, algorithms, statistical analysis, and image analysis methods for computational and structural biology, bioinformatics, and systems biology, in the era of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and other heterogeneous
-omics data used for improving human health. Our graduates are fully equipped with a number of important skills that is allowing them to continue their career in research, typically towards a PhD, to join a wide spectrum of industrial labs and organizations, or even to create their own companies in the aforementioned and other related domains.

The DSIT Program has started in 2018. It is administered by the prestigious Department of Informatics & Telecommunications of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), in collaboration with the Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens (BRFAA), and the ATHENA Research Center. The courses are taught by Professors and Researchers of the above institutions with experience in the Program’s fields of study, by PhD scientists of other institutions in Greece and abroad, as well as by experienced industry specialists.

The DSIT program awards Masters of Science (M.Sc) degrees in two specializations:

  • Big Data and Artificial Intelligence
  • Bioinformatics – Biomedical Data Science

Significant developments in telecommunications and computer systems enable telecom operators to provide consumers, through their fixed network, a vast volume of information in the form of voice, data, image and video at high speeds, increasing continuously the offered services improving quality and costs.

Mobile, wireless and satellite communications promise to deliver any form of information (voice, data and image) whenever and wherever needed. Computers are equipped with a growing computational power. The Internet is expanding in an aggressive pace, offering new services and content, changing the way we live, work and entertain ourselves. The Internet knows no national borders, working hours, age or gender. Through the convergence of technology, companies that offer television services expand their operations in digital television, while examining the possibility of providing telecommunications and information services. Conversely, telecommunication organizations are also engaged in providing television services.

The potential offered by technological progress is transforming the industrial market and its key elements. This business activity represents a wide range of transactions and includes horizontal alliances allocating the enterprise danger, matching complementary skills and vertical integration, since the factors in a market segment seek to exploit technological convergence and to expand in higher value sectors or develop scale economies.

New aspects and business opportunities appear with e- commerce. The low cost presence on the Web, allows businesses (and especially SMEs) to expand their activities in the international environment and offer consumers a greater variety of goods and services.

In the meantime, competition is intensified and transported in the international level, while the corresponding resolution of series of problems and the measures that must be taken, are carried out across national borders and international organizations, since it requires the cooperation of the international community. Such examples are the communications security, the authenticity of digital signatures, copyright, illegal content and cryptography. Today there is an urgent need to study the effects of technology on economic, social and legal level and enrich the academic educational courses.

In the past few years, a serious absence of skilled people in regulatory matters, particularly in telecommunications, is to be observed. On the one hand, engineers while preparing their plans or their research, hardly take into consideration the issues of costs, prices, regulatory framework, etc a fact that is due to the lack of the corresponding background. On the other hand, economists, decision makers and legislators are deprived of the background that will enable them to follow the technical developments. Also the composition of economic and technical knowledge is very often absent in administrative executives that undertake roles in the context of designing and developing telecommunication and information systems.

The Departments of Informatics and Telecommunications and Physics, the School of Sciences, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Electrical Engineering and Technology of Computers and Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering of the Polytechnic School of the University of Patras will organize and operate from the academic year 2019-2020 the Postgraduate Postgraduate Program entitled “SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, APPLICATIONS AND SERVICES” (Space Technologies, Applications and SeRvices – STAR)”.

The establishment and approval of “STAR” are set out in FEK Β’ 1437, 24 April 2019.

The secretarial and administrative support of the Program is undertaken by the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the University of Athens.

The sector of space technologies, applications and services has made significant progress in recent years both within the European Union and globally. In Europe in particular, Galileo (for navigation) and Copernicus (for observation of the earth) space programs combined with the new generation of Sentinel satellites have created a new frame of reference offering major opportunities for research, creation, innovation and development of new technologies , applications and services to both the public and the private sector. This framework is further enhanced by the European Union Space Policy (EUSP) and the European Space Agency (ESA) and their jointly supported actions, such as the Horizon Europe. In Greece, space science has in recent years shown considerable growth with a significant number of public and private sector players to demonstrate significant research, industrial and commercial activities related to space technologies, applications and services. The Hellenic Space Center (HSC) is shaping a new reality as it is expected that increased priority will be given to space technology research and development as well as space applications and services, aiming among other things to strengthen the national economy, to shield defense, transport safety, modernization of shipping, strengthening of the national micro-credit program, aeronautical monitoring and surveillance, monitoring of the environment (eg earthquakes, floods, forestry, floods, floods, floods, floods, floods, floods, floods, floods, floods, floods, fires) to protect citizens, modernize public administration, and provide services to society as a whole. In this context, business and academia in the field will be supported, and cooperation with the European Union and the ESA will be stepped up with a view to exploiting the available funds, geo-returns and space programs that are being developed.

Στόχοι του Προγράμματος Μεταπτυχιακών Σπουδών στη Γνωσιακή Επιστήμη

Η συνεργασία ανάμεσα στην τεχνολογία και την πληροφορική, από τη μια πλευρά, και τις κοινωνικές και ανθρωπιστικές επιστήμες, από την άλλη, έχει αποδειχθεί σημαντική και αποτελεσματική για την εκπαίδευση νέων επιστημόνων. Χάρη στη διεπιστημονική προσέγγιση οι απόφοιτοι του προγράμματος είναι εξοικειωμένοι με τις μεθόδους για τη διαμόρφωση και τον έλεγχο εμπειρικών θεωριών αλλά και με τις τεχνικές υπολογιστικής προσομοίωσης.

Το πρόγραμμα απευθύνεται σε αποφοίτους τμημάτων θετικών, τεχνολογικών, θεωρητικών και κοινωνικών σπουδών που ενδιαφέρονται για την κατανόηση του νου μέσα από τη διεπιστημονική συνεργασία. Ειδικότερα, για να μπορούν να κατανόησουν και να αξιοποιήσουν τις προσεγγίσεις υπολογιστικών προσομοιώσεων, οι ενδιαφερόμενοι για το πρόγραμμα πρέπει να έχουν στέρεο τεχνολογικό υπόβαθρο ή να είναι διατεθειμένοι να εργαστούν σκληρά για να το αναπτύξουν.

Με το πρόγραμμα μεταπτυχιακών σπουδών στη γνωσιακή επιστήμη επιδιώκεται:

Η ανάπτυξη της συστηματικής, βασικής και εφαρμοσμένης έρευνας και η προαγωγή της γνώσης σε θέματα που αφορούν την ανθρώπινη νόηση και μάθηση.
Η αποτελεσματικότερη αλληλεπίδραση ανάμεσα στην πληροφορική και τις κοινωνικές και ανθρωπιστικές επιστήμες.
Η βελτίωση της ανταγωνιστικότητας του ελληνικού επιστημονικού δυναμικού σε τομείς με ανάπτυξη και ζήτηση στην ευρωπαϊκή και παγκόσμια επιστημονική κοινότητα.
Η ανάπτυξη δεξιοτήτων για σχεδίαση, διεξαγωγή, επίβλεψη, ερμηνεία και αξιοποίηση ερευνών και εφαρμογών τους.
Η προσέλκυση και εκπαίδευση άξιων φοιτητών για την προώθηση μεταπτυχιακών και διδακτορικών σπουδών και για την ανάπτυξη και υποστήριξη της έρευνας στα συνεργαζόμενα τμήματα.
Η αξιοποίηση του ανθρώπινου δυναμικού και της υλικοτεχνικής υποδομής των συνεργαζόμενων τμημάτων.
Απώτερος στόχος του προγράμματος είναι η δημιουργία νέων επιστημόνων που θα στελεχώσουν εκπαιδευτικά ιδρύματα, ερευνητικά κέντρα, δημόσιους οργανισμούς και επιχειρήσεις του ιδιωτικού τομέα.
