ACT Commencement 2017

It was an emotional, joyful and windy evening for ACT’s graduating undergraduate and graduate students celebrating the successful completion of their studies. During the 2017 Commencement ceremony which took place at ACT’s open amphitheater, certificates and diplomas were awarded to all graduates, as well as awards to students who excelled in academia, but also extracurricular activities offered by the non-profit educational organization. The valedictorian speeches were delivered by Konstantinos Theodoridis and Vasiliki Kalaitzidou. The commencement speech this year was given by Stathis N. Kalyvas, Professor of Political Science at Yale University. In his inspiring speech, Mr. Kalyvas advised the graduating students to

be risk-taking, not risk-averse; counter-cyclical, not conformist; do not be afraid of failure; to keep learning.  You are in the unique position of shaping not just your own future but the future of our society as well. So, go ahead and do it!

Parallel Studies at ACT

By

With the requirement demands in the employment market increasing each year, it has become imperative for any graduate to secure their place in their respective field; and with every field depending even more so on other disciplines and sciences, parallel studies provide a unique opportunity to steward oneself towards a more well-rounded professional résumé.

Parallel to Greek University Studies allow students at Greek public universities to follow another program at ACT. Given the flexibility of programs at American colleges, students are able to manage the demands of both programs and equip themselves with a broader skillset.

For example, a student of Medicine who aspires to manage their own medical facility would benefit from completing a Bachelor’s in Management.

What are the advantages of Parallel Studies at ACT?

Graduate with 3 degrees

ACT is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), one of the most prestigious accrediting bodies in the US, responsible for accrediting some of the most highly ranked US colleges and universities such as Harvard and Yale.

In addition, ACT’s undergraduate degree programs are validated by the Open University, UK.

Thus, completing your studies at ACT while pursuing your degree at the Greek public university, gives you a dual degree from ACT that is both US accredited and EU validated, together with your Greek degree.

This fast-paced course is taught in English over a period of one month (June 13 - July 13, 2018 running 9:00-11:30 Monday-Thursday) and involves lectures, laboratory sessions and design challenges. It is instructed by a member of the ACT Computer Science faculty with a PhD in Electronics Engineering and Artificial Intelligence.

Who can sign up for this course?

EV3lego robotCS130The course is open to College students as well as to selected, top performing high school juniors and seniors who can gain valuable early experience with a US College curriculum taught in English (attendance certificate supplied). CS130 is a 1st year university level course. Strong performing Lyceum & IDBP students with a solid background in high school Physics and English may be accepted after a brief interview with the course instructor. No prior knowledge of programming is required.

Upon completion of the course, students will study and practice:

  • the fundamental principles of programming using the C and QB64 programming languages
  • the basics of mixed signal electronics, performing experiments with the Arduino microcontroller board
  • the fundamentals of robotics: sensors, actuators and mobile robotics programming, using Mindstorms EV3 robotics experimentation kits
  • integration of all aforementioned skills and components into their robotic designs, including the skills to troubleshoot, evaluate and improve their mechatronics creations

cs act 2016 2

The course in detail: 

The primary difference between robots and other types of computing devices is their ability to have a physical effect on their environment, rather than to simply gather, process and communicate data. In this summer course we explore sensors, microcontrollers and actuators, which are the electronic components that help robots perceive and physically interact with their surroundings. We gradually build our understanding of electronic components and programming from the ground up, with no previous coding experience required.

The course employs experiential learning, iterative design and challenge-oriented teaching to encourage students to hone their critical, analytical, creativity and teamwork design skills. During programming training all students will produce an interactive computer game which includes graphics. The course concludes with a team design competition based on a series of robotics challenges, as well as a scientific slide presentation by each team explaining their design choices to their classmates. Students are encouraged to be creative and original in designing their hardware and programming code.

They are also instructed to find, understand, modify and repurpose code from the internet, combine it with their own and optimize it for their hardware. They study and evaluate designs from other robotics teams and combine the most desirable features with their own hardware design ideas. Proper acknowledgement and citation of original work which has been integrated in the robotic designs is demonstrated by the instructor and required by all teams.

Most of instruction involves experiential learning within a team, multiple design improvement cycles and a series of increasingly challenging targets set by the instructor. Each team prepares a final slide presentation to the rest of the class, listing their achievements, inviting questions and constructive criticism of their designs. Each team subsequently participates in a final robotics challenge competition.

Students learn to analyze market and investment opportunities in other countries. Through a careful blending of theory and practical applications students are prepared to pursue careers in international companies or international organizations.

Degree Requirements

In order to receive the BS degree, the student must have fulfilled all the GER and major requirements and have completed at least 121 US credit hours with an overall G.P.A of 2.0 or better. All business students take a Research Methods course followed by a Business Strategy I and Business Strategy II (capstone, final project) course. According to NEASC Standards, students must complete at least one fourth of their undergraduate program, including advanced work in the major or concentration, at the institution awarding the degree.
