We announce the program of study for the academic year 2020-2021.
The program contains a number of new courses that will be taught for the
first time, these include courses on
- information visualization,
- front-end web programming,
- statistical methods in HCI,
- human-robot interaction*.
These new courses we hope will improve substantially the experience and
extend the available options of courses for the new students that we
welcome for the next academic year.
Another new aspect of the program is that the Special Board managing the
program has decided to forwarded the request to the Graduate Program
Authorities to extend the amount of teaching in courses that will be
offered online from 35% that is currently by law, to 70%.
This decision was the result of evaluation of the experience of teaching
online during the last academic semester (due to the Corona virus
crisis). We discovered that the experience was very positive and many
applicants have requested extending online teaching in the next academic
year. This is not a final decision yet, as it is subject to approval by
the supervising and legislating bodies of graduate studies of the
University of Patras.
* The course will be taught for the first time in the next year as the instructor is on sabbatical leave during 2020-21.
