Founded in 1983 it originated from one of the first five Centres for Higher Technical Education (Greek: Κέντρα Ανώτερης Τεχνικής Επαγγελματικής Εκπαίδευσης, Κ.Α.Τ.Ε.Ε.) established in 1974.[3] The Technological Educational Institute of Athens offered a wide range of undergraduates and postgraduates studies.[4]

On 1 March 2018 the institute was merged with TEI of Piraeus forming the newly established University of West Attica (Greek: Πανεπιστήμιο Δυτικής Αττικής).[5] [6]

HistoryEdit

The institute was one of the five first KATE's (Centers for Higher Technical Education) founded in Greece in 1974 in order to offer non-university technical programmes. In 1983, Technological Educational Institutes were established as self-governed, multi-disciplinary, technology-oriented state funded institutions and are equal to the Greek universities.[3]
