The University of Western Attica (UniWA) was founded in 2018 after the merger of the Athens Institute of Technology Education and the University of Applied Sciences in Piraeus. The recent merger (June 2019) with the National School of Public Health broadened the horizons of UniWA, which today consists of three historic and vibrant educational and research institutes in the Attica region. The total number of permanent staff is 1,061, of which the University's teaching staff consists of 589, and the administrative staff consists of 472. UniWA is the third largest educational institution in Greece by number of students after the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The emblem of UniWA is the Athenian philosopher Plato, a disciple of Socrates, professor of Aristotle and founder of the Plato Academy.
