Railways and Transport Lab's Numbers
I was lucky enough to study and start my professional career at the Railways and Transport Laboratory of NTUA, working as a researcher for almost two years and gaining invaluable knowledge and practical experience about this field of expertise. The international and national projects I participated in allowed me to develop a strong skillset that has helped me to continuously advance in my professional journey abroad since then. I'm very grateful for all the support and opportunities that the Laboratory provided me and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking to start or advance their career in this field.
I am beyond thankful to all faculty members and teaching staff for providing a supportive and engaging learning environment, imparting their knowledge to us and preparing us for the transmission from student to work life. Having successfully completed my journey at the Laboratory of Railways and Transport, I am more than grateful for learning useful tools, following advice and guidance by experts, which later proved to be extremely useful for acquiring experience and contributed to my career development.
