Engineering School students have the opportunity to participate in different competitions organised either by Mediterranean College or other institutions. Participation can be either individual or in teams. Irrespective of the result, participation in competitions provides students with an invaluable experience and creates opportunities for networking.
Recent competitions: “Environment and Development” organized by the Technical Chamber of Greece, “Student Recycling Competition”, “Save the Egg”, “Small Car Racing Contest”, “Grid Bridge Construction”.
Students have the opportunity to present their projects in the Annual Student Excellence Conference, organised by Mediterranean College, while final year and postgraduate students are encouraged to publish their research outputs in national or international academic conferences.
Internships are an integral part in the learning process for Engineering School students, offering different experiences and direct access to employment. Despite the fact that the Engineering programmes do not require compulsory work placement, students are encouraged to seek such opportunities and put in practice what they have learned in class, through the internship places made available by the College’s Career office.
