Population and Migration

Andre Quesnel - Postgraduate - (A+)
Department of Planning and Regional Development, University of Thessaly

This course aims to provide the basic knowledge for the analysis of migratory flows, the two-way relationship between migration and population concentration in various spatial scales as well as, to discuss the relations between geographical mobility and socioeconomic variables. After successful completion of this course the student will acquire the basic knowledge of methods and techniques for the study of geographical mobility and will be able to use them critically by analyzing available data. Additionally, the student will be capable of understanding the interplay between geographic mobility and external demographic socioeconomic variables; variables that vary considerably depending on the test environment / analysis scale This course aims to equip the students with: • the ability to search for data, analysis and synthesis, • decision-making capacity based on research results, • the ability to self-development and work in a future interdisciplinary work environment, • the ability to advance free, creative and inductive thinking, through the development of critical skills, as well as the necessary quantitative background of understanding complicated relationships linking the various phenomena.

Management and Simulation of Water Supply Systems

Vasilis Kanakoudis - Postgraduate - (A-)
Civil Engineering Department, University of Thessaly

The course deals with the management and simulation methods of water supply systems. It includes the analysis of the water distribution networks and the evaluation and assessment methods of their operating level. In detail the course deals with the analysis of the Water Balance, the Performance Indicators, the Non-Revenue Water and the methods and techniques for its confrontation. The water audit tools are presented as well as the tools for the distribution network hydraulic simulation. The integrated decision support systems are also presented. The course includes the analysis of the economic level of leakage and its calculation methodology. Finally, it includes a proposed socially fair cost allocation of the water balance components to the water distribution network users.

Exercise in developmental ages

Vassilis / Konstantina Gerodimos / Karatrantou - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Physical Education and Sports Science, University of Thessaly

The aim of the module is the acquaintance of students with exercise in the developmental years for health purposes. Special emphasis is given in planning and implementing strength, power, aerobic capacity, speed and flexibility training programs for children and adolescents.

engineering subject



Design as representation:Representation technologies are not only the tools for designing space but they also influence our ways of understanding space, time, materials and movement. This specific function transforms them into referential perception systems. The osmosis of the traditional and digital representation tools has decisively transformed the architectural design practice. The students are asked to create space representations using different media technologies and narration patterns.

Exercise and Obesity

Giorgow Sakkas - Postgraduate - (A+)
School of Physical Education and Sport Science, University of Thessaly, University of Thessaly

This postgraduate course deals with issues related to obesity from the standpoint of general health and how regular physical activity can reduce the development of various chronic diseases associated with weight gain and in particular fat deposition.

natural sciences subject

Cartographie thématique appliquée en démographie

Michail Agorastakis - Postgraduate - (A-)
Department of Planning and Regional Development, University of Thessaly

The course "Thematic Cartography" is part of section U.4. “METHODS AND TECHNIQUES” of the interdepartmental joint Greek-French Postgraduate Program "Population, Development, Foresight" organized in collaboration with the French University of Bordeaux IV.

Integer Programming and Combinatorial Optimization

Georgios Saharidis - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Thessaly

Integer programming and combinatorial optimization course is a course of the 6th semester of the department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Thessaly. During the semester the students are taught the basic knowledge of linear integer and mixed integer programming. Students are taught heuristic and exact solution approaches and algorithms through small, medium and large scale examples. Finally, through detailed toy examples from the bibliography as well as real case examples from the industry the teaching focuses on modeling technics. Students get experience on modeling approaches in order to get the ability to develop robust and compact mathematical models for real case studies.

engineering subject


Costas Papadimitriou - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Thessaly

The course is involved with the study and description of dynamic motions of bodies subject to external forces. The kinematics of a point are developed, where the motion is studied without taking into account the forces that cause it, and the relative translational motion is studied. Next, the kinetics of point particles are studied, where the motion is related to forces through Newton/Euler laws of motion, the principles of thrust and momentum, and the principles of work and energy. Next the analysis is generalized to the kinematics of rigid bodies and the following motions are studied : translational motion, rotation around a steady axis, planar motion, rotation around steady point, general spatial motion, and relative motions with respect to rotating coordinate system. The kinetics of rigid bodies is developed through Euler equations, principles of thrust and momentum, and principles of work and energy.
