Being our Friend...

“My time at AIT was one of the defining events of my life. I chose AIT because for me it was an adventure to study abroad for sixteen months. The program was challenging academically and I got to be part of cutting edge research in my thesis project, which has given me a good head start for my current PhD program. Also, the opportunity to live in Greece was not to be missed. The country is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the food is excellent.”
