The Department of Computer Science and Technology, Faculty of Science and Technology at the University of Peloponnese was founded by the Presidential Decree No. 138 of May 17, 2002.

The Department's mission is the cultivation of the science and the technology of computer information processing systems and their applications as well as the training of computer scientists according to the needs of the economy, research, industry and education.

The Department of Computer Science and Technology offers a modern program of undergraduate studies covering cutting-edge issues such as embedded systems, virtual reality, internet technology and artificial intelligence.

The teaching and research staff of the department firmly believes that the practical applications in the field of informatics lack quality and efficiency when they are not combined with a strong theoretical background and vice versa that the theory is sterile when it is not connected to practice. Consequently it has designed the curriculum so that there is no strict separation between theory and practice.

The undergraduate studies at the Department of Computer Science and Technology last eight semesters. The common core courses that cover the foundations of computer science are offered in the first six semesters. Starting from the fourth semester students may select courses for specialization in specific areas of computer science or for acquiring knowledge in other sciences such as telecommunication science, economics and pedagogics. In the last two semesters and in order to graduate the student is required to carry out a diploma thesis.

The Department of Computer Science and Technology has been recently evaluated by an external committee of recognized experts under the supervision of the Hellenic Quality Assurance and Accreditation Agency. The external evaluation report can be viewed here.

Presidential Decree No. 44 of April 8, 2009 defines the professional rights of all the graduates of the Department of Computer Science and Technology.

From the academic year 2009-2010 the Department of Computer Science and Technology offers also postgraduate studies leading to a master of science degree or a doctoral degree.
