The Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Athens (TEI ATH; Greek: Ανώτατο Τεχνολογικό Εκπαιδευτικό Ίδρυμα Αθήνας) is a higher-educational institute supervised by the Minister of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs. It is the third largest Institution of Higher Education in Greece, with approximately 35.000 students, a regular faculty of 600 and a temporary faculty of 1700 academics.[1] The Technological Educational Institute of Athens offers undergraduates and postgraduates studies.

On 1st October 2016 it was announced that TEI of Athens will be transformed into the Athens University of Applied Sciences (Πανεπιστήμιο Εφαρμοσμένων Επιστημών Αθήνας).[2]

In 1983, Technological Educational Institutes were established as self-governed, multi-disciplinary, technology-oriented state funded institutions and are equal to the Greek universities.[3]
