Sectors

The Department of Informatics is divided into the following Sectors: Sector of Computer Programming, Sector of Information Systems and Applications, Sector of Computer Systems and Networks.

1.1. Sector of Computer Programming

This sector mainly supports introductory courses in Informatics (Introduction to Information Technology, Algorithmic Design) and Computer Programming courses. In cooperation with the Department of Mathematics, the Sector is responsible for mathematical courses, like Probability Theory and Statistics and Numerical Analysis. Moreover, the Sector supports a great number of other Departments at the T.E.I. of Athens in teaching introductory courses in Informatics and Computer Programming. Especially, the Sector is concerned with the following cognitive fields.

  • Mathematics.
  • Linear Algebra.
  • Discrete Mathematics.
  • Computer Programming.
  • Algorithm Design.
  • Numerical Analysis and Applications.
  • Data Structures.
  • Compilers.
  • Operational Research.

1.2. Sector of Information Systems and Applications

The main task of this Sector is to take advantage of Information and Communication Technologies (I.C.T.), with emphasis to requirement analysis and system design and implementation, aiming at the support of information and management procedures in all levels of an organization or enterprise. The Sector is concerned with the following cognitive fields:

  • Information systems (analysis, design, development and management of the various types of information systems and knowledge-based systems).
  • Databases (design, implementation and management of information and knowledge storage systems).
  • Artificial Intelligence.
  • Software Engineering (design, construction, control, maintenance and software production).
  • Digital Image and Sound (image processing, computer graphics).
  • Applications in Administration, Economy, Education, Health as well as in other areas of human activities.

1.3. Sector of Computer Systems and Networks

The result of the technological evolution of hardware and that of telecommunications was the design and implementation of a great variety of computer systems, from personal computers to parallel computers, computer networks and special purpose signal processing computer systems. The essential concern of the Computer Systems and the Networks Sector is the design and functioningof computers and communication systems. The sector is dealing with the following cognitive fields:

  • Computer Systems Architecture.
  • Microprocessors and Applications.
  • Telecommunication Systems.
  • Computer Networks.
  • Parallel Systems.
  • Systems Programming.
  • Communication Systems Management.
  • Mobile Communication Systems.
  • Internet Technology and Programming.

The following table depicts the Teaching Staff of each Sector of the Department, according to their title.
