The School is proud of the accomplishments of its faculty members and graduates. Several of our students received prizes for their Diploma Thesis work from the Technical Chamber of Greece, and distinctions in international professional competitions. Many of our former students have pursued graduate studies here and abroad. Their ranks include faculty members at top-rated North-American Universities (Carnegie Mellon University, Georgia Tech, McMaster University), researchers at University, Government, and Industry Research Labs (e.g. Oracle, HP, Yahoo, Thomson, Rice-U.S., NICTA-Australia, Telcordia-U.S., Ericsson-Sweden), and successful professional engineers across Greece and Europe.

Many of the faculty members have obtained their Doctoral degrees in top-rated foreign Universities, and several worked for many years as faculty members abroad prior to joining us. The current levels of peer-reviewed scientific publication activity and competitive research funding are testament to the talent, visibility, and productivity of the faculty. Faculty credits further include multiple international project participation, multiple best paper awards in international conferences, professional recognition in terms of associate editor and technical committee member appointments, and leadership in conference organization.
