About

The American University of Athens (AUA) is offering a wide range of postsecondary career-oriented programs for the past four decades.
Having started as a small High-Tech Engineering Institution affiliated with Boston University (BU) located in Boston Massachusetts, today, AUA is celebrating 40 years as a prominent and pioneering institution of postsecondary education. After obtaining an Undergraduate/Bachelor’s degree at AUA, thousands of our students have continued their Graduate – Master’s studies at the more than 160 Universities, mainly in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
Since its creation, AUA has been focusing on Science, Technology, and Engineering, and Math (STEM) courses, following the rigorous curriculum and syllabi of Boston University. The innovative success of AUA in Greece, the European Union, the United States, Canada, and the Middle Eastern countries, has resulted to a good number of imitations, mainly following the British System of Education, and from centers offering two year technical or vocational program that time.
Apart from its longstanding affiliation with the Boston University, AUA has developed a good number of collaboration programs with numerous respective institutions, including George Washington University (GWU), in 1987, City University of New York (CUNY), in 1988, as well as Northeastern University from Boston, USA.

Accordingly, AUA programs allow their graduates to build the necessary foundations for their academic, as well as professional success.
