Message from the Department Chair

Dear Students,

We welcome you to the Department of Industrial Management & Technology (DIMT) and congratulate you on your success. Our Department began its operation in 1991. It is the genuine successor of the “School of Industrial Studies” that was founded back in 1938, evolved to the “Higher Industrial School of Piraeus” in 1958, and was finally renamed as the “University of Piraeus” in 1989.

The DIMT is a dynamic, evolving cell of the University of Piraeus, with goals, vision and a promising future. Its distinctive advantage – and at the same time its added value – is that it combines management science with the technological component in the field of industrial enterprise, thus differentiating it from general business administration studies. Let’s try to understand what this actually means.

Every day we all use products and goods that have been produced through industrial processes and procedures. But what does industrial production involve? Questions like how a product is designed, how do we choose the materials to use, what equipment to choose and how to put it into operation, how to plan our production using available resources in an optimal manner, how to manage our supplies and how we organize our distributions, how we set our strategy in the face of competition, how we manage and motivate our executives, how we leverage our information and how we analyze our business data, how we manage energy and environmental challenges, how we make business decisions under uncertainty, how we set up reliable and quality production units, etc., are required on a daily basis in an industrial enterprise so that we can enjoy various innovative and sustainable products.

In your undergraduate studies at DIMT you will have the opportunity to learn and practice the methods that provide us with answers to these (and many more) questions and use modern software tools to support your decisions, implement strategies and solve problems that require knowledge and skills in the contemporary, technologically advanced industry. But above all, you will develop a broad and critical way of thinking and discover the challenges and the fascination of combining technological and managerial knowledge, which shape both the modern scientist and the successful business executive.

Our Department, as well as our University in general, will be by your side at every step of this path, providing you with knowledge and opportunities and opening windows for you to discover attractive areas of interest.

From your side, you should be consistent, operate with academic principles, make every day count and always evolve.

I wish you all have a creative academic year!

About the Department

Τhe Department of Industrial Management & Technology aims to educate and develop executives in the production management science, focusing on the applications of new technologies in production systems. The aim of the Department, with its modern curriculum, is to provide students with the knowledge of the scientific methodology required for the analysis, design, implementation and organization of appropriate systems, in order to effectively address the complex problems that arise in the production process from the interdependence of human factor, raw materials, means of production and modern technology.

To this end, the program includes infrastructure courses that refer to the core modules of Physics, Mathematics and Socio-Economic Sciences, as well as courses geared to the main subjects of specialization, ensuring basic practice and means for studying phenomena, systems and technology faced by modern production. It also introduces the additional and important dimension of human factor, its activities, its behavior and its creativity. The program of the Department is aimed at students who wish to become executives of private and public productive units and enterprises active in the production and service sectors.

The Department of Industrial Management and Technology is committed to the quality of its educational and research work. The Department’s undergraduate program is among the first that have been accredited by the Hellenic Quality Assurance and Accreditation Agency (HQA, currently National Authority for Higher Education) at the University of Piraeus, achieving full compliance with HQA Quality Standards for Undergraduate Degrees and the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG). The Department eagerly engaged in the accreditation process, which was successfully completed on 25/11/2019.
