University of Patras is a university which has a lot of different departments from which to choose. Engineering, medical, economical and other fields are offered there. The campus is located next to Rio Antirio bridge which offers an amazing view. The research level in the university is really high and this can be discovered really easily from all the world rankings of the universities, since it’s always around the best 500.
The courses are really high level and you are gaining a lot of knowledge. For some departments, the level is quite high so it can be a bit difficult to pass some exams.
University of Patras so far has offered to me a great experience which I really recommend you to feel it too.
I have been studying in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering for the last 5 years. The University is known for the Engineering departments and is the 3rd biggest University in Greece. The faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineers is a highly demanding faculty. During the first 3 years students go through general subjects and get an overview of the different fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Then in the 4th year, they select one of the specific fields, Automation, Power Engineering, Telecommunications or Computer Science.
The faculty is placed in the middle of the campus, easy access to the dormitories, restaurant, and the cafeteria is provided. The whole campus is placed on the hill where you can enjoy an amazing view of the famous bridge of Rio, the seaside, and the mainland. Students in Patra enjoy the student life a lot, as Patras is one of the biggest student cities in Greece.
University of Patras is located ~10km out of the city in a spacious campus. The University is known mostly for its engineering school, which hosts some of the best departments in Greece. The quality of education provided is high, however the infrastructures could be improved.
It’s one of the biggest universities in Greece. At the department of business administration the classrooms are too small and in winter there isn’t any radiator or air condition. The library is big and has an amplitude of books for each department of the university. Furthermore the restaurant has very good food which is tasteful but it’s a little bit small. The professors have the knowledge and place high demands.
THE LEVEL OF COURSES ARE VERY GOOD, AND LABORATORY AND BUILDING INSTALLATIONS. THERE IS GOOD COMMUNICATION WITH TEACHERS WHO ARE CLOSE TO STUDENTS AND WOMEN TO HELP THEM. THEORY GOOD SELECTION FOR WHO WISHES TO STUDY THE MECHANIC ENGINEER TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERS AND AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PATRAS.
My studies lasted for 5 fantastic years. The faculty of Electrical & Computer Engineering in Patra is comprised with high level educators and great facilities for all the years of studies. There are 4 different fields to choose from; electicity, computer science, telecommunications & automation. The overall study experience was great – I gained so valuable knowledge through my studies here and at the same I had the chance to explore the beautiful city of Patras.
The University’s location is less than 10km from the town center , in a beautiful campus with lots of green spaces. Regarding the studies and the prestige as an postgraduate student things are decent but not ideal due to the fact that not the necessary attention is being given in undergraduate courses.
I studied at the mechanical engineering department and I was very satisfied with the labs and the facilities!! The whole university was in a quiet location and had many places to have a good time!!the students apartments weren’t very good. the restaurant was satisfying!!
