The Technical University of Crete was founded in 1977 in Chania and welcomed its first students in 1984. Spanning five Engineering Schools - production engineering & management, mineral resources engineering, electronic & computer engineering, environmental engineering, architectural engineering - and corresponding postgraduate and doctoral study program that cover a wide range of the engineering science, the Technical University of Crete offers an education that is of the highest standards and recognized status. The mission of the TUC is to develop modern specializations that emphasize research and high tech sectors and in close cooperation with industry and other production organizations in Greece.
The Technical University of Crete is particularly active in conducting basic and applied research. The research policy of the Technical University of Crete focuses on the basic, technological or applied research that promotes science and growth and respects the academic ethics, and at the same time promotes the cooperation with international organizations and educational and research institutions. The Project is carried out by two laboratories of Environmental Engineering School (TUC). The Hydrogeochemical Engineering and Remediation of Soils Laboratory (HersLab), under the directory of Professor Nikolaos Nikolaidis, who is also the Research Manager of the Project and the Water Resources Management and Coastal Engineering Laboratory (WRMCE), under the directory of Professor Ioannis Tsanis.
