As the President of the Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Athens, I have the pleasure to welcome you to our Institution and its web hosting pages.

Today, the TEI of Athens is a modern Higher Education Institution comprising 456 Teaching staff members whose educational and research work is supported by several temporary Teaching staff members, 207 Administrative staff members, 79 Specialized Scientific staff members and 25.000 students. In terms of Teaching staff and student resources, it is the largest Technological Educational Institute and the third largest Higher Education Institution in Greece as for the number of students.
The TEI of Athens is a living organism developing dynamically and evolving continuously, which makes it extremely competitive in national and international level. It offers internationally recognized undergraduate and graduate study programmes and according to the Intra-university Higher Education Policy Network (2012, 2nd edition), it figures among the 11,43% of the world's best Higher Education Institutions. Furthermore, according to a study conducted by the LLP/ERASMUS Student Network, it is 100% proposed to foreign students.
During its 30 years of existence, the TEI of Athens has to showcase a rich work on Education and Research by having graduates with specialized technological and scientific skills, thus contributing significantly to the formation of the modern Greek technology and consequently to the country's economy.
