Dear friends and colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in our 7th Erasmus Teaching Week that will be hosted by the Department of Electronic Engineering of the Hellenic Mediterranean University (HMU) between the 11th and 16th of October 2020. Until now 80 colleagues have been registered. The registration will be open until the end of June. 

The “Erasmus Teaching Week” is an international scientific event organized every year, the last week of May, in the School of Applied Sciences of HMU in Chania, Crete. Due to COVID-19 lockdown this year the week has been moved in October. Moreover due to COVID-19 uncertainty regarding traveling, the participants can attend the week face to face and remotely as well. 

Each year the Erasmus Weeks’ curricula organized by the HMU are focused on topics related to the Department of Electronic Engineering but at the same time are not included in the standard offered undergraduate program.  The 7th Erasmus Week will be focused on the following topics:

  • Online Teaching & Learning
  • Blended Mobility & Teaching
  • Teaching Methods
  • Soft Skills Development
  • Robotics & Artificial Intelligence
  • 5G Communications
  • 3D Printing
  • IoT
  • New Technologies in Electronics

The main objectives of the Erasmus Week are the following:

  • To introduce the aforementioned topics to undergraduate & postgraduate students, new graduates and anyone who is interested in these topics
  • To disseminate the programs and the facilities of the Department and the HMU in general with an objective the enhancement of the student and staff mobilities to HMU
  • To allow the interaction of our students with the invited speakers and present them the options they have along with their Erasmus mobility (KA103 and KA107)
  • To facilitate the establishment of new collaborations between the staff members of the Department and our invited speakers
  • To operate as a dissemination tool for the collaboration programs (KA2) HMU participates and coordinates

The topics will be presented along the week permit the participation of administrative staff members who would like to have a training or to participate in a special session that is acting as Erasmus Staff Week.

The Erasmus Week schedule-activities includes:

  • Lecture / Presentations in parallel sessions
  • Option to follow the Week’s Program and contribute remotely
  • Laboratory Visits
  • Field Visits
  • Cultural Activities
