Our undergraduate study program is a 300-ECTS, 5-years, Master-equivalent one. All courses are taught in Greek. Erasmus+ incoming students are not required to take any test of proficiency in the Greek language. However, they are encouraged to attend:
- Greek Language Course (free of charge, lasts one semester and awards 6 credits), and
- Greek Culture and Civilization (free of charge, lasts one semester and awards 3 credits). Students who wish to attend either or both courses must include them in their Learning Agreement (info: firstname.lastname@example.org – please also visit: http://www.upatras.gr/en/erasmus_mobility).
Language barrier put aside, there are a number of courses offered to Erasmus+ incoming students as listed below. Within the framework of these courses (depending on the course/instructor) the student:
- will be provided with the appropriate literature in English,
- will interact with the instructor through scheduled meetings throughout the semester,
- will be assigned a project or a series of take-home exercises,
- will be examined on the basis of the above-stated project/exercises or of a final written (or oral) test at the end of the semester.
*An undergraduate incoming Erasmus+ student may carry out his/her final year project (thesis – or part of it) under the co-supervision of one of our faculty members (info regarding our staff and their specializations may be found on our web site www.civil.upatras.gr
); in this case, the student (and his/her thesis’ supervisor) have to come in contact with the faculty member in question and ask for the member’s agreement.
Our postgraduate study program is a 90-ECTS, 1 ½-years one. All courses are taught in Greek excluding those taught in combination with courses offered by the MEEES programme (info: http://www.meees.org/ - an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course that aims to provide higher-level education in the field of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology).
*Can be both taught in a single semester (please contact with the instructor).
