Located on the beautiful island of Crete, the T.E.I provides technological education at University level for the students of Greece and foreign incoming students. The T.E.I of Crete has expanded and developed since it was first established in 1983. It comprises the Schools of Applied Technology, Health and Welfare Services, Management and Economics and Agricultural Technology. 

Heraklion, the largest city of Crete, with a population of 130,000 inhabitants, is located in the center of the north coast of the island. The area of Heraklion was the main focus of the Aegean cilivization from the 2nd millenium BC. The city of Heraklion dates back many centuries and has changed its appearance and name many times.  The visitor of today may marvel at the many interesting monuments in the historical center of the town which make one feel the presence of Byzantium, as well as the Venetian and Turkish periods that have left their marks on this city.  The city also has an industrial area, a large harbour and an international airport. Heraklion publishes many newspapers, and has several television and radio stations. The stores and large super markets along with other tourist activities that take place there make Heraklion a vibrant city. The students of the various educational institutions in the city create a youthful and lively student atmosphere, particularly regarding the social life of Heraklion. Restaurants, taverns, cafeterias, bars and cinemas (including open air ones) contribute greatly to the entertainment of students in this town.  For more information about the city of Heraklion today please follow this link.
