Equipment 

The School maintains a large number of equipment for both teaching and research.

The Department of Geodesy and Surveying operates three digital stations for the registration of sea tides. The first is housed in the Thessaloniki Harbor Organization facilities, the second in the "Villa Magda" of the Moskov family in Platamon, Prefecture of Pieria and the third at Agios Charalambos, Maronia, Prefecture of Rodopi.

The Department of Geodesy and Surveying operates a calibration basis for EDM instruments in the region of Axios river near Thessaloniki.

The Department of Geodesy and Surveying operates four permanent GPS stations which are part of the EUREF network in Thermi, Thessaloniki (AUT1), Xanthi (DUTH) and Larisa (LARM).

The School also maintains a Museum of Historical Instruments (underground floor of Surveyors' Wing ).

The extensive list of the instruments and equipment of the School can be found below.
