Vicky Michalopoulou, apart from acting, has also studied digital arts in Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) and University Paris 8 - Vincennes-Saint-Denis (alumni 2020).  However, what has inevitably structured her mindset is her studies in civil engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA, alumni 2009). As a result, during the elaboration of her master's thesis for the Greek-French Master "Art, Virtual Reality and Multi-user Systems of Artistic Expression", which was a very deep and personal journey, she invented the term "Performing Engineer". That is to say, she managed to put down in words her identity. 

Her Thesis for the joint Greek-French Master Degree on Digital Arts (which is a collaboration of Athens School of Fine Arts and University Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis) was entitled: 

"The Performing Engineer Towards a Poor Interactive Multimedia Theater - 

A study on Samuel Beckett's Happy Days" 



and led to the creation of the multimedia performance Happy 365.

The performance was officially selected for Ars Electronica Festival 2020 in Linz, Austria.
