The Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece (Greek: Τεχνολογικό Εκπαιδευτικό Ίδρυμα Δυτικής Ελλάδας) was a Greek Higher Educational Institute based in Patras with more than 20000 students.

History[edit]

In the course of time, the former TEI of Western Greece had several names. It started its operation as KATEE in 1970 and then renamed as KATE. Later, with the founding law of TEI in 1983, it was renamed to TEI of Patras. In 2013 with the "Athena" Plan, the TEI of Patras and the TEI of Messolonghi merged and became the name of TEI of Western Greece. In 2019 by law 4610/2019 TEI of Western Greece is abolished and the schools STEG & TETROD, SDO and SEYP together with their departments are absorbed by the University of Patras, while the STEF is absorbed by the University of Peloponnese. This law comes to renew the map of Higher Education by creating, merging and removing schools and departments. The operation of most departments starts from the academic year 2019–2020. [1]
