Technological Education Institute of Pireaus

The T.E.I. of Piraeus is one of the oldest Academic Institute in Greece, with a long tradition of involvement in the country’s educational life. It was established under the terms of Law 1404/83 in 1983, while Law 2916/2001 saw the Institute formally incorporated into the country’s Higher Level Education System. Students wishing to enter the T.E.I. must first successfully take the Panhellenic examinations, a legal requirement, and once students have joined, full attendance is compulsory.

 

As part of its work, the T.E.I. of Piraeus offers both theoretical and practical education to help students use their scientific, technological and artistic knowledge and skills. Courses at each of the T.E.I.’s departments last for eight semesters, which includes a six-month period of Practical Training.

 

Today T.E.I’s are part of the country’s higher education system with specific-and distinctive when compared to Universities-mission. It provides high school graduates with scientific and academic training of immediate application to the economy, although many T.E.I graduates decide to continue in for post-graduate study in the Universities after obtaining their T.E.I degree.

 

Responding to such interest on the part of its graduates, the T.E.I of Piraeus, and a few other as well, have started to experiment with post-graduate programs of their own which are expected to be officially incorporated in their basic program once the necessary legislature is completed. The study at T.E.I, as all levels of education in Greece, is provided free of tuition and education material and is supervised by the Ministry of Education.

 

To gain a degree, students need to complete successfully the courses offered by their department, write a dissertation and complete a six-month period of Practical Training. The T.E.I. of Piraeus’s headquarters is in Western Attica in the Municipality of Aegaleo, alongside P. Ralli and Thivon Street. The buildings are located on the edge of the historic Elaionas area of Athens, where philosophers used to teach in ancient times (e.g. Plato’s Academia).
