The Computer Center of the School of Chemical Engineering started its operation on May 1995, following the initiatives of the Head of School V. Papageorgiou (P) and the Vice Chairman M. Assael (AP), as well as with the help of S. Paras (P), the student Z. Gallis, and M. Brindakis (TP). From February 2009, the School has gained a second computer center, by the initiatives of the Head of School G. Sakellaropoulos and Vice Chairman M. Assael.
Today, CC is fully equipped with 59 up to date PCs (30 in A και 29 in B). Every PC has TFT 15″ or 19″ screen, while there’s a projector and a sound system installed in every room, used for academical needs.
More specifically, computers’ technical features are:
– 29 Intel® Core™ i5 στα 3.2 GHz,
– 29 Pentium Core 2 Duo στα 2.93 GHz,
– 1 Pentium Dual Core στα 2.50 GHz.
Computer Center B’ is used only for courses, while Computer Center A’ is open to students and operates by a voluntary team of students and by assistance of Special Teaching fellows.
The valuable help of D. Zacharopoulos, K. Kakosimos and A. Kanaris for the Computer Center operation during all past years must also be referred.
