Our University, despite its recent establishment (in 2018), originates from three historical and dynamic educational and research entities in the region of Attica: the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, the Piraeus University of Applied Sciences, and the National School of Public Health, which have produced thousands of graduates and contributed decisively to the development of the country, but also at a worldwide level. The first two institutions have had a remarkable 45 years course since their establishment, nearly 20 years of which in higher education. The National School of Public Health was founded in 1929 by Eleftherios Venizelos, preserving an outstanding contribution of 90 years.
The new University of West Attica (UniWA) was thus founded, bringing forth high academic standards, capitalizing on individual attributes of the former institutions and creating economies of scale and scope. It consists of 6 Schools (the School of Public Health, the School of Administrative, Economic & Social Sciences, the School of Food Sciences, the School of Health & Care Sciences, the School of Applied Arts & Culture, and the School of Engineering) and 27 Departments, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines.
The University has three Campuses (two in the Municipality of Egaleo—at Egaleo Park and the Ancient Olive Grove—and the third in Athens) while a fourth Campus is currently being developed in the area of Moschato. UniWA has approximately 55,700 undergraduate, 5,500 postgraduate and 460 doctoral students enrolled, a rapidly increasing number considering the fact that the preexisting institutions did not have the authority to provide doctoral studies.
Our strategy is to invest in people and our practice is to cooperate with the academic community based on a system of values, trust, stability and credibility with ethics and justice, providing equal opportunities and applying the University’s meritocracy and accountability to society. At the same time, we are encouraging the intensification of digital transformation, innovation and academic cosmopolitanism.
We strive for the entire academic community to work harmoniously and creatively, with a common vision: for UniWA to be established as a first-choice, modern, and progressive University, with a publicly recognized and competitive role in worldwide education and research. A pleasant and multicultural higher education institution where all of us, along with our students, can live and socialize. A University that prioritizes health, self-determination, dignity, culture, sport and ecology.
