Students' Views

"My days in Athens and at AIT were more than pleasant and definitely an important milestone in my life. This stay helped me in many things: a) the privilege to live in a small international community gathered in one place, b) gave me the basic skills and expertise to enter the community and daily life’s work. On the other hand, I got the opportunity to meet some great people from different backgrounds who share the same passion with me, I enjoyed very much living with them, the souvlakis in the Lab, not to forget the late night discussions with my colleagues."
