The Department of Electronic Engineering (  and the Physical Plasma & Laser Center ( of the Hellenic Mediterranean University announce an invitation to express interest in ten (10) postgraduate student positions for the academic year 2019-20 under the LaPlA Postgraduate Program.

Applications of the interested parties can be sent until 11/10/2019


Object – Purpose
The MSc “Lasers, Plasma & Applications” promotes scientific knowledge and research, providing a high level of specialized knowledge to its students in order to meet the research and development needs of the country and the European and international academy. environment.
In particular, the aim of the MSc is to provide its students with a high level of postgraduate education in matters related to the applications and technology of lasers and plasma, which in recent years have been continuously developing rapidly scientific and technological development internationally. The training of young scientists in this extremely important international sector will enable the country to continue to actively participate with specialized scientific staff in international developments related to the respective innovative technologies and cutting-edge knowledge.

The objectives of the MSc “Lasers, Plasma & Applications” are:

  • the education and preparation of its students for the acquisition of the necessary knowledge, so that with their graduation they are ready to join the third cycle of studies, ie to prepare a doctoral dissertation at the Hellenic Mediterranean University or other Higher Education Institutions in the country or elsewhere. ,
