In line with our philosophy for continuous development, AKTO introduces the two year vocational training programmes – IEK to its programmes of study, covering almost all the educational levels in Applied and Fine Arts, Design and Media. The vocational studies programmes – IEK offer greater flexibility both in attendance and fees, with the status and credibility of AKTO – the most specialized educational institution in Art & Design in Greece.
Philosophy of the programme
A Cad Cam Designer has the required skills to use both the traditional as well as contemporary digital design media and the complete knowledge of design, with applications from one building to a construction detail, and from a site plan to the design of mechanical applications.

Topography, Construction materials technology, Mechanics, Material durability, General structure, Construction, Transportation works, Site management and construction costing, Hydraulics, Building design, General structural – construction practical exercises.
Upon successful completion of the two year cycle of studies, graduates are awarded the Vocational Studies Certificate, giving them the right to take part in the certification examinations undertaken by E.O.P.P.E.P.
