16 professors of the School of Civil Engineering among the top in the world

A recent study published in the journal PLOS Biology, retrieving data from the SCOPUS database and using a range of parameters for each scientist's research contribution and influence, analysed data of 7 million scientists with at least five published articles on the SCOPUS database. As a result, a list of the top 100 000 scientists from all scientific subjects (as well as those ranked in the top 2% in their main subfield discipline) was compiled.

An analysis by professor A. Papaioannou of the University of Thessaly for the Greek scientists contained in this database, shows that the NTUA is the leading institution in the country in terms of the presence of its scientists in this list. Specifically, the list of the world's leading scientists contains 98 members of the NTUA or 18.28% of its faculty members.

From the School of Civil Engineering, for the year 2019, the following 12 professors are contained in the list (in order of their ranks):

G. Gazetas*, D. Koutsoyiannis, D. Vamvatsikos, M. Karlaftis†, E. Vlahogianni, M. Papadrakakis*, N. Lagaros, D. Dermatas, I. Psycharis*, G. Yannis, M. Kotsovos* , E. Vintzileou

A second list referring to all years analysed (1996-2019) contains 15, i.e. 11 of the above and in addition:

Ι. Golias, D. Tsamboulas†, K. Spyrakos and C. Gantes

(Retired/emeritus professors are marked with * and deceased with †).

Ηλεκτρονικές εξετάσεις - Σύστημα ΔΗΛΟΣ

Παρακαλούνται όλοι οι διδάσκοντες, επόπτες και φοιτητές που θα συμμετάσχουν σε ηλεκτρονικές εξετάσεις να εγγραφούν στο σύστημα ΔΗΛΟΣ. Θα χρειαστεί να επισκεφτούν τον παρακάτω σύνδεσμο του συστήματος, να χρησιμοποιήσουν τη λειτουργία "Σύνδεση" και να ταυτοποιηθούν με τα επίσημα στοιχεία τους στα συστήματα του ΕΜΠ ( με το username και το password που έχουν στο central).

Μία επίσκεψη αρκεί για την εγγραφή. Όμως χωρίς να την κάνουν έγκαιρα, υπάρχει κίνδυνος να μην μπορούν να καταχωριστούν στις λίστες των εξεταστών/εξεταζόμενων και να χάσουν την πρώτη εξέταση.

Organizing remote lecturing

The School of Civil Engineering has turned all courses into distance learning based on the current timetable.

For each individual course, students enrolled in "mycourses" in the particular course receive an email from the previous day containing a link. Following the link, students are able to enter the virtual classroom at the time of each lesson. Teaching is interactive and students are able to ask or answer questions, or even present their work (sharing their computer screen).

Participation requires a device (desktop, laptop, tablet) with microphone and camera. Students will have their microphone and camera turned off while watching, and they will turn on when they speak themselves. The system to use is

Inspection of Damte dam, Ethiopia, May 2018

In 2001, with the thesis of the then postgraduate student of the School of Civil Engineering of NTUA Evgenia Arapaki (see link below), an initiative begun to construct the small dam Damte in South-Western Ethiopia as a pilot project to deal with the intense drought problems in Ethiopia. The project was accomplished (in 2006), with full funding from Greek sources and with the participation of other students and professors of the School.

Now the graduating student of the School Ioanna Kouki is working in the frame of her diploma thesis on the assessment of the dam. Between 8/5 and 14/5/2018, a mission of the School took place in the area with the said student and the member of the Lab Teaching Staff Dr. Haris Saroglou. The mission was made possible thanks to the support and organization of the Ethiopian Honorary Consul in Greece, Terina Armenakis, who managed to find sponsors for the mission. (The School did not contribute financially). The purpose of the visit was to inspect the current situation, assess the operation of the dam and identify any problems.

This small scale irrigation dam is a characteristic example of the positive effect that Civil Engineering works can have on the living conditions of people and local societies.

Participation of students of the School at the EGU 2018 conference

The General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU 2017) took place in Vienna in the week of 8-13 April 2018 with 15 000 delegates from 106 countries and 17 300 presentations. Undergraduate and postgraduate students, and teachers from the School of Civil Engineering (30 scientists in total) presented about 50 papers (oral or poster). The students made a good impression on the international audience of the conference, highlighting the high level of studies, research and student-teacher collaboration at our School. At the same time, they were also rewarded with their participation in the international scientific process, the acquaintance with the world's leading protagonists, and the recognition of their work.

The School congratulates its students for their diligence and their successful presentations, which are an advertisement of the School, and wishes them to keep up the good work. At the same time, it regrets that it was unable to support them financially, which would have been unthinkable for the other 105 participating countries.
