My program is on Preschool education and I really enjoy every minute. The professors are highly educated and can really help us through our study years. The facilities are not as good as I expected but I am having a great time so far.View more
The ECE curriculum offers a wide range of topics that electrical and computer engineers can face. Students can select from various courses in microelectronics, automation, programming, power electronics, robotics, telecommunications etc. The level of the courses was most of the time more than I was initially expecting giving me a wide range of knowledge and skills.
The faculty’s facilities are new while the labs are getting equipped with state-of-the-art equipment most of the time. The courses give you hands-on experience via labs and workshops.
Student NGOs are highly present in the faculty by organizing seminars, workshops, competitions and other events connecting the students with their upcoming professional lives. Some NGOs are also offering soft skills sessions targetting on boosting the upcoming engineers’ skillset. I would definitely recommend joining one of them, like EESTEC since they are really active and friendly.
Accommodation is provided for free by the university after fulfilling the needed criteria while food is also provided for free on a daily basis.View more
Most proffesors seem to possess their subject, are nice towards students and are available for extra work in case someone needs help. The facilities are clean, there are plenty of classes. Most courses are on point, interesting and provide useful informations. It’s a flaw that most of the facilities in Xanthi, were i study, are outside the city.View more
It is a university with a renewed curriculum so that the student can get the general knowledge on the subject of electrical engineering but also in recent years to be able to specialize in courses and areas that interest him most. Laboratories have relatively old machines and I think they should be closer to today’s technology. Finally, organizations have an important place in the university as we have one of the most active student branches of EESTEC where it offers many supplies to students that will help them in their careers.View more
I’m currently in my third semester. I don’t live inside the campus but have visited a lot of friends who do, and the accommodation is barely viable (small rooms, extremely bad insulation, old buildings), Most professors either do not care about teaching, or do care but don’t have the skills to transfer knowledge to the students. The amphitheaters and classrooms are okay (heating could be better and some are too small for everyone to fit). Online classes are generally okay, but the platform we currently use has technical limitations (Skype for Business). Textbooks are free (by the government), but generally arrive late and sometimes don’t reflect what is said in class. My general notion is that, although most topics and classes are interesting and will help me become a computer engineer, most of the time it’s not even worth attending class and the student has to do all the work on their own, without even the necessary sources.View more
The facilities are not the best since they are old and neglected, at least the campus site that my faculty is located on. The professors although they are easy to reach, it seems sometimes that most of them are distant from the students and are not willing to help with some of the problems that they face (regarding their studies). The university campus is in town so it is accesible. The student life on campus is very vibrant. There are no international students as far as i know.View more
Due to the outbreak, all the lessons were transferred into the online environment. The same happened with the exams. We had the chance to participate in our exams last summer without staying behind the schedule.
This semester we tried hybrid lessons, respecting the number of people that should attend.
Our professors are open to questions and responses.
Room for improvement: better scheduling when it comes to labs.
Last but not least there are a lot of student organizations giving to students a wide range of possibilities when it comes to getting involved and improving.
The university offers accessibility to a newly built campus for the polytechnic school, while the professors are very easy to reach. Because of the school being placed in a smaller town, most of the professors know the students that attend frequently. Other than that, the ECE department specifically offers many chances to become part of international organizations and gain travel experiences while attending conferences. There is an Erasmus office offering exchanges and internships abroad as well. The academic level of the ECE department is really good, and for those that have decided to heavily invest in their studies, there are many chances to enter top level jobs after graduating in companies such as ARM or work in environments like CERN.View more
Since my class has arrived, there has been a huge change in the way we are taught. They are trying to make our experience as good as possible. Also having the opportuiny to develop skills, through EESTEC, that the university doesn’t develop has changed the way I live life.View more
The facilities need work as they are old or incomplete. However the level of knowledge is quite good and some of the professors can give you really strong incentives to go further to your career. Moreover, the university needs to be more extrovert and to cooperate with other universities abroad to built and enhance its fame.View more
