Welcome

WELCOME

It is with great Pleasure that we welcome all our foreign newcomers, students, teaching and research collaborators, and professional friends of the National Technical University of Athens [NTUA]. It’s generally acknowledged that NTUA is the leading educational institution for engineering and applied sciences and has a great role in the development in Greece. We are confident that the scientific, technological and socio – political information you will receive in this webpage will be proved useful. It contains all essential details about the NTUA – its history, its structure and organization, the schools and sections covering the various courses of study and research activities, as well as the application procedure for incoming LLP/Erasmus students.

A BRIEF NOTE ON THE HISTORY OF NTUA

NTUA was founded in 1837, at about the same time as the modern Greek State, just after the War of Greece for Independence of 1821 – 1828. It consists of nine Academic Schools. Eight of them deal with pure Engineering Sciences including Architecture, and one with Applied Mathematics and Physics. In each School a five-year studies program, with 300 credit units, leads to a Diploma equivalent to a Master in Engineering or Science.

The role that NTUA plays during the last 160 years in the development and progress of the country has undoubtedly been one of utmost importance and has been widely recognized. Graduates of NTUA with a strong background in Science and Technology and a Diploma equivalent to the Masters of the best Aglo-saxon Universities have been prominent members of the society, both in the academic field as well as the civil service and private business. An important number of our graduates are well known and honored “ambassadors” of Greece in many distinguished Universities and engineering companies all over the world.

Our first priority is to keep abreast of modern developments in Science and Technology, within the context of a modern democratic society. Important research achievements and new methods of approaching problems and teaching are constantly being followed by our 3.000 permanent members (academic and administrative staff) and 15.000 students. In addition to the provision of more knowledge, due importance is given to the skills of communication and management, which are so essential in the highly competitive nature of all leading activities, everywhere.

Above all, the aim of this historical University of Sciences  and Technology is to contribute  to a successful development of the collective and the individual infrastructure, by improving the quality if life in every aspect – cultural, social and professional.

Choosing “Prometheus bringing the fire from the Gods to the mankind”, as its symbol, NTUA never loses sight of the real human needs and dimensions.

You are welcome to our NTUA family.

NINE SCHOOLS OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

NTUA consists of Schools. Each School is further divided into Sections. Today, there exists 9 Schools with a total of 42 Departments, dealing with specific scientific fields in each School and fostering teaching and research.

ERASMUS - KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT FRONTIERS

Periods abroad range from three months to one academic year, with guaranteed recognition of studies.
