AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS

THE PIONEERS IN AMERICAN EDUCATION, INNOVATION & PROFESSIONAL CAREER TRAINING SINCE 1982

History

AUA is an independent private educational institution offering a wide range of programs in more than 60 concentrations.

Ever since 1982, we developed 3:2 programs focusing on Engineering, Information Technologies, Biomedical and Manufacturing Engineering, and appointed talented and experienced faculty (100% doctoral level) to deliver them. Whereas only 30 students enrolled in AUA’s first academic year, in the first decade of its operations, an ever-increasing number of students from Southeastern Europe became interested in American postsecondary education. At the same time that AUA’s student body exponentially expanded, so did the number of academic programs offered. For more than two decades, AUA also facilitates programs for Veterans, which are supported by the US Federal Government.

Over the past 40 years, AUA’s faculty and students have formulated many devices, systems and laboratory techniques that have made a substantive and transformative contribution to their respective fields/areas of interest, and have thus transformed the research character of AUA.

Today, we are celebrating 40 years and we are proud of our 18.755 graduates, and their individual stories of success.

Mission

Since its inception, AUA’s mission has been to respond to the evolving needs of society by offering capable and motivated students:

  • excellent upper-level curriculum programs
  • intellectual growth with scholarly and creative activities
  • a research culture and environment; preparation for upper level curriculum studies; quality research for the upper level curriculum
  • the link between study and professional achievement

Through our admissions system, the level of course offerings, the emphasis on General Education course requirements, orientation and academic counseling sessions, AUA projects the image of a leading institution in higher education in AUA Europe. Its success in meeting objectives can be measured by the number of upper level curriculum students who have found employment in their chosen professional fields and by the number admitted to prestigious European and American universities for upper level curriculum studies.

In recent years, the comparative advantage of American education in the global marketplace has dramatically changed due to rapid advancements in communication and information technologies thereby precipitating a truly global business environment. Pronounced political and economic transformations across Eastern Europe and the prospect of the European Union comprising 27 countries with a population of 500 million are creating new opportunities for American companies and new challenges for managers educated according to American higher education standards.

Bold steps are taken at AUA to prepare managers and specialists for competition in the international marketplace through its high-quality education and the importance placed on individual development.
