The School of Civil Engineering has over 50 years of life. Half a century of evolutionary track record with major objective the creation of integrated engineers, powerful personalities, capable to respond to the new requirements that result from the rapid technological development and the continually produced scientific and technical knowledge.

Simultaneously, with the instilling of scientific and applied knowledge, a significant effort is devoted to the generation of spirit of responsibility, cooperation, self-driven analytic and synthetic thinking, adaptability to different conditions as well as ability for solving new problems with the application of original ideas and new technologies.

The educational philosophy of the School aims at the creation of qualified civil engineers, capable to apply their full professional readiness in all the subjects that are related to the practice of their skills and knowledge. The structure of the five-year educational curriculum that leads to a comprehensive and all inclusive degree of Civil Engineering has proven its validity and effectiveness throughout the years.

The School of Civil Engineering of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki achieved, through the continuous effort of its members, a sovereign place in the scientific/technical education and research in Greece, and in the meantime an international recognition. The School provides today its students, in both the undergraduate and graduate programs, with high qualifications that guaranty employability in the job market.

The School performs high quality research in pioneering topics and possesses one of the highest positions among engineering departments of the Greek universities in terms of influx of competitive research funds from national and European resources.

Fundamental objective of all of us constitutes the demonstration of internationally recognized level of the educational process and research work of the School as well as the continual improvement of all its components. The School traditionally is recognized as by its harmony, control, camaraderie, and internal balance.
