NTUA is the oldest (1836), largest and arguably the most prestigious Technical University in Greece. It is divided into 9 academic Schools, covering all major engineering specializations, as well as engineering science. The School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NA&ME) is the youngest one in NTUA (1969) and claims today a top per capital research position within the University. It counts today over 600 students, 35 doctoral candidates and a regular staff of 34, of which 24 are faculty members and, therefore, is currently one of the largest and most active in Europe.
