QS Rankings 2019: NTUA once more the only Greek university in the top 500 worldwide

The image from the QS website for NTUΑ shows:

  • the relative drop in the ranking of the National Technical University (from rank 400-410 in 2018 to rank 446 in 2019),
  • the significant contribution in the good ranking of the recognition of NTUA's research (Citations per Faculty),
  • the very low ranking of the NTUA as regards the ratio Faculty to Students and the even lower ranking in terms of International Students,
  • the decisive contribution of the School of Civil Engineering to the overall classification of the NTUA (the rank #42 referred to above as QS WUR by Subject Ranking corresponds to the subject of Civil Engineering).

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.

Ετήσια Έκθεση Απολογισμού του Κοσμήτορα της Σχολής Πολιτικών Μηχανικών - Ακαδημαϊκό Έτος 2015-16

Περίληψη

Το διαρρεύσαν ακαδημαϊκό έτος ολοκληρώθηκε σύμφωνα το ακαδημαϊκό ημερολόγιο. Προβλήματα δημιούργησε η εξωτερική (πολιτική) επιβολή διπλής εξεταστικής περιόδου, αλλά η Σχολή αντέδρασε εισάγοντας ρυθμίσεις που οχυρώνουν κατά το δυνατό την ποιότητα των σπουδών. Έγιναν σημαντικά βήματα ενίσχυσης της δημοκρατίας στη λειτουργία της Σχολής και προστασίας της από βίαιες ενέργειες. Η αποσαφήνιση θεσμικών θεμάτων καθώς και η χρήση τεχνολογιών πληροφορικής βοήθησαν τη λειτουργία της Σχολής, τη διαφάνεια και τη δημοκρατία. Προχώρησε σημαντικά η μελέτη του προγράμματος σπουδών με στόχο την ανανέωσή του, που αναμένεται να υλοποιηθεί κατά το τρέχον έτος. Έγιναν κάποια πρώτα βήματα για την ανάπτυξη της στρατηγικής της Σχολής. Για πρώτη φορά στη μνημονιακή περίοδο η Σχολή προκήρυξε νέες θέσεις ΔΕΠ.

Η έκθεση εγκρίθηκε ομόφωνα (με λευκή ψήφο του Κοσμήτορα) ως προς τα πεπραγμένα από τη ΓΣ της Σχολής στη συνεδρίασή της στις 27/9/2016.
