One of the positives is that the teachers are renowned, with a lot of experience. Most of them help the students with their questions and generally try to pass the exams to most of the students. The course is graded and needs consistency so that one can under everything while the teacher says them, however, many exercises and questions are solved. One of the biggest negatives is that the facilities are not good at all. They are old and have a big maintenance problem. In winter it is very cold and in summer it is very hot! I would recommend to a friend the school of chemical engineering for the high education he will receive e but first I would inform him about the great difficulties he will face regarding the facilities of the school.View more
Most of the teachers are excellent and the classes are well balanced, except the 4th and 5th semesters where there is too much workload. The career prospects are really good because we have a bachelor degree with an integrated master. Especially, the Sector of Industrial Management and Operational Research (Industrial Engineering) is very close to companies and has contacts with professionals. The NTUA has a really good reputation and that eases the job research.View more
The National Technical University of Athens is one of Greece’s top institutions. Its Mechanical Engineering degree is a 5-year program that incorporates many Master level courses and students take specializations. Regarding its academic level, most of the courses are top notch and taught by very experienced professors delving into research. Its location is in the outskirts of Athens but very much easily accessible with public transportation. Its facilities on campus are average, but many amenities are not very well maintained.View more
The university has a huge amount of courses that are pretty irrelevant to the actual subject. I believe that at least fifteen courses could be completely excluded. University’s secretary can be really insulting and frustrating sometimes and even though it may sound insignificant it really is a problem. I believe that it should be easier for students that live very far from Uni to watch the lectures and they should be recorded so that you can rewatch them as many times as you can. One more thing that I’d like to mention is that most professors don’t really care, they want to just ” do their job ” and go home, there are a few of them that really care for us and want us to understand. Lastly, there are some auditoriums that are really poorly made and you can’t read what’s written on the board or what the projector shows. Apart from all that if you want to really train your mind and soul (sometimes even body because the distances in there can be challenging sometimes depending on how heavy your backpack is) this university is a very good choice. If you can make it through that you could definitely handle a lot of different situations in society. You would also be really well trained in the subject you’ve chosen even though as I said before the courses are more than needed. You’ll be forced to study hard on your own and really earn your degree. I’d suggest it as it truly is the best university for engineers are at least that’s how it’s being treated by society and the market. Most companies would prefer someone from NTUA to any other university out there and for naval architecture and Marine engineering it’s the only university there is, this subject is exclusively taught in our university, at least if you want to study it in Greece.View more
– Very high absorption.
– Versatile knowledge that will be very useful in the later professional career.
– Excellent level of students.
– Many different directions to find the field you really like.
– Poor facilities.
Excessively busy curriculum for the first 3 years.
– Few laboratories in relation to respective schools abroad.
My programme has one of the best teaching staff in Greece and their sheer focus to impart their knowledge to us is something we all look forward to it. Also throughout our programme, we have learned team spirit since a lot of classes require a team-semester project. I will not hide that some of the classes are very difficult and require extra dedication but I think this is something I will look forward to in the future.View more
I am a student of Electrical and Computer Engineering School, of the National Technical University of Athens, in the 5th semester of my studies. This school was my first choice when I took the national exams, and now, after two years, I feel just as happy and proud as then, that I managed to succeed. It is considered one the most demanding and at the same time promising schools, and universities in general, here in Greece, and I have to admit that these allegations are confirmed on a daily basis. This is due to the fact that it has increased workload in multifaceted courses combined with mandatory laboratories. However, tasks and lecture attendance helps a lot in keeping in touch with the courses and organizing someone’s study. As far as the students are concerned, there are people of all kinds who are really friendly and easily accessible so as to expand your network. In fact, this compensates for the impersonal disposition of several teachers in the first years (due to a large number of students), favoring the cooperation with your fellow students, something that may have more value and motivates you more in the end (both in academical and personal life). If I had to say something negative, this would be on the one hand the facilities, as they are not so modern and hi-tech in a European academic way, and on the other hand the extensive presence of student political groups, which are quite fanatical without essential achievements (and that says someone who loves politics). In addition, if someone wants to give their studies their international touch, they have to deal with this mainly alone, because there are ways (Erasmus, competitions, etc.) but there are not so highlighted by the responsible. In general, students have sincerely unforgettable student years there, that follow them throughout their lives, giving them multiple professional and research perspectives (programming, computer architecture, telecommunications, networks, energy, electronics, administration elements, robotic, all in one master’s degree).View more
The most significant part of my programme is the passion about learning new fields of science. The working stuff of this campus are really focused in science and research. I recommend this campus to any student who his real purpose is to explore new fields of science.View more
NTUA offers various options of employability and gives us the opportunity to discover multiple fields, some of which are researched vastly in our labs. The campus is very beautiful, as it is surrounded by a small forest which makes it ideal for relaxing before and after the classes.View more
Facilities need to be updated and well equipped. Some professors try to make the difference but there are others who don’t follow the technological updates. The overall experience was good but of course, there were a lot of points that disappointed me.View more
