TUC's first concern is to provide its students with an education that combines vigorous academic study and excitement of discovering new knowledge with actual support and offer of intellectual stimuli within the framework of a dynamic academic community.
Spanning five Engineering Schools - production engineering & management, mineral resources engineering, electrical & computer engineering, environmental engineering, architectural engineering - and corresponding postgraduate and doctoral study programmes that cover a wide range of the engineering science , the Technical University of Crete offers an education that is of the highest standards and recognized status.
“TUC’s curricula are up-to-date according to high international standards. Periodic evaluation of curricula leads to potential adaptation of course content or introduction of new courses to follow the evolution of the discipline and meet international academic trends.”
With these words, the External Evaluation Report of the Technnical University of Crete by the Hellenic Quality Assurance & Accreditation Agency (H.Q.A)., confirms the high-level education offered by TUC.
The EEC also refers to the “excellent job placement for graduates of certain Schools due to quality training”, as a main strength of the Programmes of Undergraduate Studies.
In addition, we quote the following, according to the EEC report:
“The Institution is populated by highly skilled and highly motivated faculty, staff, and graduate students who have the potential, will, and ability to excel. The very fact that TUC continues to function and deliver acceptable output is solely due to the strong interest and enthusiasm, high level of responsibility and volunteerism beyond normal expectations of the Institution leadership, faculty and staff. EEC highly commends this attitude of TUC. The TUC’s administrative team, faculty, and staff should be applauded for these efforts.”
The External Evaluation Committee overall evaluates the Technical University of Crete at the highest possible rank: “Worthy of Merit”.
