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!

Professor Dimitrios Emiris

Department Chair

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. 

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.

The introduction of new technologies (automated production and distribution equipment, information networks, new materials and processes, support / decision making systems, etc.) as well as ensuring the sustainability and competitiveness of the business in today’s complex economic and technological environment, require firm foundations and knowledge in the management of industrial enterprises.

Course Guide of the Department of Industrial Management and Technology

Postgraduate Studies

The Master’s Program of the Department, the MSc in Industrial Management and Technology, consists of three contemporary specializations, “Logistics Management“, “Energy and Environmental Management” and “Project Management“. Logistics, Energy Management and Project Management are undoubtedly critical activities in the contemporary work and economic environment, both in Greece and internationally. In this context, there is an urgent need to train professionals in the above sectors, capable of responding to the challenges and needs of the modern business world.

The MSc in “Industrial Management and Technology” of the University of Piraeus aspires to provide high level staff for private and public sector companies. This is supported by its contemporary curriculum that focuses on high priority directions for our country and internationally (Logistics Management, Energy & Environmental Management, Project Management), as well as the academic staff with distinctions in their field, publications in the best international journals and high quality research. At the same time, an integral part of the learning experience of the students of the Program is a variety of activities such as seminars, workshops, conferences, study trips, simulation exercises, company visits that add special value.

You can find more information on the MSc in Industrial Management and Technology in its website (here) and the website of the Department (here). 

Moreover, the Department offers the opportunity for Doctorate Studies and hence acquiring a PhD (see details here).
