The Department of Educational Civil Engineering was a founding Department of the School of Vocational & Technical Education (SELETE) which was founded in 1959.
Until 2002, the Department of Educational Civil Engineering operated with two directions of four-year study:
- Construction Works, and
- Transport and Plumbing Works
With the establishment of Α.Σ.ΠΑΙ.Τ.Ε. (Law 3027/2002), which succeeded SELETE as the universal successor, two separate Departments of Civil Engineering were created:
- Educational Civil Engineering, and
- Educational Policy Infrastructure Projects
which operated, like the other Technological Departments of ASPAITE, with two cycles of study, as follows:
The first cycle, lasting 8 student semesters, included Technological and Pedagogical courses in the first 7 semesters, while the last semester was dedicated to the elaboration of the Thesis, the Internship in the Specialty and the completion of the Internships (DD). The degree awarded at the end of the first cycle of studies gave the right to teach in the specialty in Secondary Education and was equivalent to the TEI degree.
The 2nd cycle of studies, lasting 2 student semesters, included only Technological courses and the degree provided the graduates with the professional rights of the respective Departments of TEI.
With Law 4186/13 the two Policy Departments of Law 3027/2002 were merged into one Department:
Educational Civil Engineers, five years of study, whose degree provides the right to teach in Secondary Education and the professional rights of the respective Departments of TEI.
The mission of the Department of Educational Civil Engineering of ASPAITE is:
- to promote the development and transmission of knowledge in the science of pedagogy and the science of civil engineering through teaching and applied research, and
- to provide students with the necessary supplies that ensure excellent pedagogical and technological training.
