The Award

The NIKI award has been created
by sculptor Costas Ananidas 

The Friends of AIT honor prominent Greeks, or personalities of Greek descent who are internationally recognized for their contribution to science and technology and for inspiring a new generation of scientists to follow in their footsteps.

The “NIKI” (VICTORY) Award is inspired by the statue Niki of Samothrace from the prow of a ship and represents the goddess as she descends from the skies to the triumphant fleet. Her right arm was originally raised, cupped round her mouth to deliver the shout of “Victory!” The most likely battle commemorated by this monument is, perhaps, the Battle of Kos, in 255 BC, which Antigonus II Gonatas of Macedonia won over the fleet of Ptolemy II of Egypt. Victory by Greeks who have overcome difficult challenges continues to move and inspire the world.

Students' Views

“The two years that I spent at AIT – 16 months attending the MSIN program and the rest as member of the Autonomic and Grid Computing Research unit – was an unforgettable experience for me. I learned how to work and conduct research. Now I am a Ph.D. candidate of the ECE department of the Carnegie Mellon University. AIT has outfitted me with all the needed qualifications to succeed in this great challenge. I will never forget the sleepless nights I spent in AIT, but above all, I will never forget the amazing people I met and cooperated with.”
