About the National Technical University of Athens? (NTUA)
NTUA is the oldest and most prestigious educational institution of Greece in the field of technology, and has contributed unceasingly to the country’s scientific, technological and economic development since its foundation in 1836. It is closely linked with Greece’s struggle for independence, democracy and social progress. In Greek, NTUA is called the “Ethnicon Metsovion Polytechnion” which stands for National Metsovion Polytechnic. It was named “Metsovion” to honor the benefactors from Metsovo, a small town in the region of Epirus, who made substantial donations in the last half of the 19th century. At this time NTUA is divided into nine academic Faculties, eight being for the engineering sciences, including architecture, and one for the general sciences.
