The TEI of Peloponnese is one of the 15 Technological Educational Institutes established in Greece. It is the most important and rapidly developing educational and research centre in this region of the Peloponnese. The Presidential Decree 94/1988 stipulated the beginning of the operation of the TEI of Kalamata as an off-campus faculty of the TEI of Patras. The first department of the TEI of Kalamata was the Electrical Engineering Department which started its operation in the spring semester of the academic year 1987-88. The Presidential Decree 502/1989/ΦΕΚ215/3.10.1989/τ.Α annulled the off-campus faculty of the TEI of Patras in Kalamata and established the TEI of Kalamata with two schools. The School of Agricultural Technology and School of Management and Economy
At the time of their establishment, the two Schools consisted of the following departments:
School of Agricultural Technology
School of Management and Economy
Also as an off-campus faculty in Sparta, Department of Computer Mechanics is established in Sparta and operating since 2005.
From the academic year 2009 -2010 the Departments of Agricultural Technology and Greenhouse Crops and Floriculture changed their names into Department of Food Technology and Organic Greenhouse Crops and Floriculture respectively.
From the academic year 2009 - 2010 the TEI of Kalamata also established a new department, the Department of Speech Therapy which together with the Department of Radiation Technology, which will start admitting students from the academic year 2010 - 2011 are part of the new School of Health & Welfare Professions.
