The Department of Shipping Trade and Transport is located at the Northern-East part of the Aegean Sea, in the city of Chios.
Chios island has population of 30,000 inhabitants, with the population projected to increase. The city of Chios is connected both by air and by ship (with conventional and high-speed ferries) with Piraeus, Thessaloniki and Kavala, as well as with other islands of the Aegean Sea (i.e. Lesvos, Samos, the Dodecanese islands). The city of Chios, homeland of many ship owners, is the administrative, economic and intellectual center of the island of Chios and the capital of Prefecture of Chios.
Long-running cooperation of the Department of Shipping, Trade and Transport with shipping companies, institutions, bodies, and with the local community, builds upon the advantages offered by the leading position of Chios island in the shipping industry, thus providing great opportunities to students and graduates for internship and employment.
