A series of exciting administrative developments over the past several years have given NTUA a new 21st Century character, dramatically improved the study atmosphere, and significantly improved the quality of service which the university provides to students.
First of all NTUA has revamped administrative operations with the goal of providing high-quality, efficient service. We have implemented electronic administration procedures, promoted a no-paper management model, and have encouraged the transmittal of information via the Internet. We have renovated our web pages and television wall system to create a multidimensional real-time campus communication network.
We have also dedicated ourselves to improving the environment. Part of this process involves implementing environmental protection policies as well as promoting low carbon and reduced power consumption. The new Sound and Image Arts building will be built with new concepts of “Green Architecture.” However, our concept of “environment” is expanded to include campus facilities and convenient and comfortable living spaces and facilities for students. We have augmented dormitories, shuttle buses, and campus cafés. We have also committed ourselves to providing faculty members with the best possible facilities. We have added research rooms, accommodation for visiting faculty, e-classrooms, and specialized multi-media classrooms.
In recent years, the university has made considerable investment in our campus buildings. We are making major renovations to our library, adding state-of-the-art information retrieval systems, and enlarging our library collections. A new “Sound and Image Arts Building” is currently under construction. We have been actively investing in our museum, and have improved its collections, exhibition facilities, as well as research functions.
