Academic Background

Vasileios holds a Diploma (MEng) in Civil Engineering (5 year degree), conferred by the National Technical University of Athens, Greece (2014). Within the last four semesters of his studies he specialised in Structural Engineering and undertook a thesis on the Effect of Near-Fault Directivity on the Inelastic Response of RC Frames, which he completed in the Laboratory for Earthquake Engineering of NTUA.

Subsequently, he acquired a Master of Science Degree in the Analysis and Design of Structures, from the National Technical University of Athens as well (2016). This postgraduate programme emphasizes on the Structural and Geotechnical aspects concerning the analysis of existing structures and the design of new, focusing especially in the case of seismic conditions. For his thesis, he implemented an Investigation of the Near-Fault Directivity Pulses’ Effect on the Inelastic Behavior of a Curved RC Bridge, which he completed in the Laboratory for Earthquake Engineering of NTUA.
