The organizational structure of ICCS is a key reason of its success. Following a lean structure, the Institute is directed by its director and a 5-member board supported by an administration team. On the research/technical side, there is a single layer hierarchy comprising individual and independent research teams, forming up the so called ‘Research Units’. Currently, within ICCS/NTUA there exist more than 30 Research Units covering all domains of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Each Unit is headed by a faculty member of ECE-NTUA or the appointed ICCS/NTUA researcher. The typical size of each Unit is relatively small including PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and support personnel.


Since its foundation, in 1989, ICCS/NTUA has followed closely the progress of the disciplines of electrical and computer engineering, leading to successfully achieve its set goals and grow to a competent research institute in Greece and Europe. The key reason for its success has been the quality of students and faculty members of SECE-NTUA. Every year the latter attracts the top graduates of higher education who pursue to enter NTUA through the exams of the national process for the selection of higher education students. On the other hand the faculty members of SECE-NTUA have equally high profile track records of scientific and research achievements in Greece, Europe or the US.
