The institute has three campuses. The main campus is located 15 km outside the city of Thessaloniki in Sindos, the second campus is in the nearby city of Kilkis and the last campus is in Nea Moudania.


The five faculties altogether consist of 22 departments. The Department of Clothing Design and Production was added in the academic year 1999-2000 as an annex of the institute in Kilkis and in the academic year 2000-2001 the Department of Fisheries Technology - Aquaculture started operating, also as an annex of the A.T.E.I.TH., based in New Moudania Halkidiki. In addition, since the spring of 1998, two optional program studies have become available for admitting students outside the traditional way of examinations. In regards to the members of its community as a whole employed 430 permanent teachers, 220 administrators and finally the students of the institute have reached the number of 22,000.

The institute's own facilities located at the 15th km of national road Thessaloniki - Athens, near the entrance of Sindos. Spread over an area of 1,600 acres, most of which approximately 900 acres, occupied the farm, with greenhouse crops, stables, poultry farm, plant personnel, training rooms and office service farm. The total building area reaches 35,000 m², which hosts the five schools currently operating in the institute. In the same area is, finally, one of the two homes available to the institute for the accommodation of students.

In regard to laboratory equipment, the improvement is impressive, thanks to the use of national and EU funds, to which they played a key role in the establishment of the Research Committee, together with the intense activity that developed in European projects from the professors themselves. This potential, renewed and strengthened in recent years by members with upgraded academic qualifications, significantly promoted the development of cooperation with tertiary institutions, both Greek and abroad.
