BSc Engineering / MSc Information Systems

My name is Stelios (Stylianos) Mathioulakis and I have a 5-year degree in Surveying Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece (NTUA). I am also a newly admitted student to the MSc in Information Systems - Business Intelligence specialization degree at the University of Colorado, Denver - Business School. I found a passion for teaching when I started private tutoring to Junior High School students in Math and Physics when I graduated High School and entered NTUA. In NTUA, I also delivered a series of lectures and lab exercises in the context of the course “Urban and Regional Planning using GIS” of the Geoinformatics graduate program, under the guidance of Dr Yorgos N. Photis. My teaching interests cover the areas of IT, Engineering and Business. Feel free to contact me via the discussion Q&A or via direct Udemy message.
