Department's Goals

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in 1993 under the P.L. #177/93 and accepted the first students in the academic year 1994-95. It became part of the School of Technological Sciences of the University of Thessaly, currently the School of Engineering, which is located in Volos. It occupies a renovated building of the old Paparriga smelting-works factory at the 'Pedion Areos' campus, which was transformed into classrooms, offices and laboratories.

The first students were admitted in the 1994-95 academic year and the first Teaching and Research Faculty openings were announced in August 1994. Already twenty (20) faculty members have been elected and appointed while four (4) more faculty members are in the process of being elected. Several other faculty openings are in the process of being filled in the near future. Several courses are also taught by visiting professors under the P.L. #407/80. The Laboratories of Computational Geomechanics, Soil Mechanics, Hydromechanics and Environmental Engineering, Concrete Technology and Reinforced Concrete Structures, Structural Analysis and Design, Highway Engineering, Strength of Materials and Micromechanics, Hydrology and Water Systems Analysis and Informatics in Civil Engineering are fully functioning.


The Civil Engineering gained its administrative autonomy in the Fall 2001. Its administrative body is the General Assembly, which includes both faculty and students. The Chairperson and the Vice-Chairperson represent the department.

Department Chairman: Dr. Emilios Comodromos, Professor
