The Wilhelm Wundt’s Psychometrics laboratory is equipped with a variety of psychometric tools and devices and appropriate audio devices. Finally, the Albert Ellis In-house Clinic is purpose-built for role play as well as individual and group sessions that take place by licensed and experienced clinicians. Wireless camera technology, allows students to observe experimental, simulation role-play, counseling sessions and in-House Clinic sessions remotely, under the guidance of trained professionals and facilitators. A one-way mirror is also built in, to allow for facilitation of experiments in the Wilhelm Wundt’s Psychometrics Laboratory that is adjacent to the Albert Ellis In-House Clinic. Typical clinical and neuropsychological assessment tools are an integral part of the laboratory equipment and are updated on a regular basis in order to ensure currency.

Also, students have access to BioSensors SmartLab, which was added in the resources available to students and academics of Aegean College late in 2021 in collaboration with iMotions. Its main aim is to facilitate research in different areas such as Psychology, Education, Artificial Intelligence, Health Sciences, Business & Neuromarketing, Neuroscience and more.
