The NIKI award has been created
by sculptor Costas Ananidas 

The Friends of AIT honor prominent Greeks, or personalities of Greek descent who are internationally recognized for their contribution to science and technology and for inspiring a new generation of scientists to follow in their footsteps.

The “NIKI” (VICTORY) Award is inspired by the statue Niki of Samothrace from the prow of a ship and represents the goddess as she descends from the skies to the triumphant fleet. Her right arm was originally raised, cupped round her mouth to deliver the shout of “Victory!” The most likely battle commemorated by this monument is, perhaps, the Battle of Kos, in 255 BC, which Antigonus II Gonatas of Macedonia won over the fleet of Ptolemy II of Egypt. Victory by Greeks who have overcome difficult challenges continues to move and inspire the world.

Students' Views

"The environment there, is so motivating, being equipped with the latest up-to-date labs, a generous library, a wide reading room and computer labs open around the hour and during the weekends. The professors of AIT are so helpful, actually to a degree that exceeded my imagination. Apart from the fact that each student has an assigned academic advisor, each AIT professor is an academic advisor, to whom you are welcome to ask for assistance anytime."
