The first registration should be made within a deadline announced at the beginning of September of each academic year. Αt the beginning of each semester the student must to declare online the courses will attended.
In addition to the number of students that enroll to University Departments with the regular procedure, as defined by the Law, the following categories can also enroll in percentages designated by the relevant law:
- Greeks living abroad
- Children of greek civil servants working abroad
- Citizens of Cyprus
- Non-natives – Foreigners
- Expatriate scholars

The academic work of each academic year is structured in two semesters (fall, spring). Each semester includes at least 13 full weeks for teaching and two weeks for examination. The exact starting and ending dates of each semester are determined by the Department.
Every student is obliged to participate during her/his studies regularly and substantially in the educational process, according to the legislative frame and the decisions of bodies of the University and the Department respectively.
The curriculum of the Department of Computer Science & Engineering is described in the Undergraduate Courses List page. It should be noted that the courses are distinguished in compulsory and electives. Students should attend all compulsory courses, while electives are selected from each student among those offered by the Department at the current semester. There are no elective courses for the first five semesters.
The student completes her/his studies and takes the degree, after successful examinations in the courses, prescribed by the program, if she/he assembles the required number of points, within the time of at at least 10 semesters.
The statement of courses should be made in the beginning of each semester and in exclusive deadline of two weeks from the beginning of courses of the corresponding semester. The maximum number of courses in which the student can register is six (6) about the first semester, five (5) about second semester and nine (9) for all others.

The knowledge of the English language is also required for the acquisition of the degree of Computer Science. The student should register for an English course at his first registration in the Department.
The level of knowledge of the foreign language is determined by the ability to translate a Computer Science text in Greek in order to assure the knowledge of the structure of the language and of the basic terminology in the area of Computer Science.
Registration of graduate students of other Departments: Graduates of other Departments can register after successful attendance of examinations in the following three courses of the first year of studies of the Department :
- Calculus I
- Introduction to Programming (in any language)
- Applied Linear Algebra
The number of accepted students can reach the percentage of 4% on the prescribed number of eligible students (for all the categories classified). For succesful applicants the courses in which they were examined successfully during this examination are automatically granted.
In the 10th semester of their studies, students can take a thesis under the supervision of a member of the faculty of the Department.

The diploma thesis is examined and graded by a three-member committee of the Faculty members, in which the supervisor will participate obligatorily.
Students who develop diploma thesis must present the results of their work in a lecture. The presentation can be attended by any interested party.
The diploma thesis corresponds to 30 ECTS (forty (40) credits).
The student is required to submit to the Department an electronic copy of his / her diploma thesis.
For the diploma thesis, the following time constraints also apply.

The Practical Exercise is announced twice per academic year and the students (students) complete an application filed at the University of Ioannina’s Practice Exercise Office. The choice of both students and employers is made by the relevant Committee. The evaluation of the applications is based on criteria established by the Department’s Industrial Practice Committee. Successful completion of the internship gives the student one (1) point for every two (2) months of internship and one ECTS credit unit for each (1) month. The acceptance of this point and the degree is approved by the General Assembly of the Department after the corresponding proposal of the relevant Committee.
To complete his studies and receive the degree, a student must:
- Be examined successfully in all compulsory courses of the current programm of studies
- Collect at least two hundred and fifty five (255) points (300 ECTS).
- Be examined successfully in the English Language.
The Degree’s mark is calculated according to the following steps: The mark of each course is multiplied with the factor of gravity of the corresponding course and the sum of the results is divided with the sum of factors of gravity of all courses.
