The School of Computing organises frequent field trips to companies, organisations and institutions. Students are guided through the premises, they are briefed about the inner workings of the organisation and they are brought in contact with its executives.
Recent visits: Intracom – Telecom, OTE Satellite Communications, and Aristotle University.
Computing School students have the opportunity to participate in different competitions organised either by Mediterranean College or other institutions (e.g. Microsoft Imagine Cup, Game Development competition). 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.
The School of Computing actively participates in different conferences taking place in Greece or abroad. The purpose is for students to be informed about recent developments on their field and cultivate their own personal business contacts.
- China – Europe International Symposium on Software Engineering Education (CEISEE 2017)
- IEEE International Conference on “Systems Informatics, Modelling and Simulation” (SIMS 2014)
- International Conference on “Interactive Mobile Communication, Technologies and Learning” (IMCL 2015)
- Infocom (annual conference)
- Infocom Mobile (annual conference)
- Infocom Security (annual conference)
- HotelTech (annual conference)
Students also have the opportunity to present their projects in the Annual Student Excellence Conference, organised by Mediterranean College. 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 Computing School students, offering different experiences and direct access to employment. Despite the fact that the Computing 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.
