Located in southern Europe, Greece forms an irregular-shaped peninsula in the Mediterranean with two additional large peninsulas projecting from it: the Chalcidice and the Peloponnese. The Greek islands are generally subdivided into two groups, according to location: the Ionian Islands (including Corfu, Cephalonia, and Leucas) west of the mainland and the Aegean islands (including Euboea, Samos, Chios, Lesbos, and Crete) to the east and south. North-central Greece, Epirus, and western Macedonia are all mountainous. The main chain of the Pindus Mountains extends from northwest Greece to the Peloponnese. Mount Olympus, rising to 9,570 ft (2,909 m), is the highest point in the country.
EDUCATION IN GREECE
The education system in Greece is centralized, with all levels falling under the responsibility of the Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs. The Greek Educational System comprises of three consecutive levels: Primary; Secondary; Tertiary. Education from Grades 1-9, ages 6-15, is free and compulsory.
Tertiary education is divided into university education offered by universities and non-university education offered by Higher Technological Educational Institutes and Higher Education Institutes.
University graduates can continue their studies to attain an MSc and a PHD provided they meet the criteria set by each department running the courses.
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course combines engineering and business studies and is offered by the Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Technology, but includes contributions from the Departments of Business Administration and Accounting. It is a new generation of Master’s Program developed that covers the area of Business Engineering Science and Technology which is most wanted in Industries worldwide.
MSc in Oil and Gas Technology is a highly academic and professional course providing knowledge and skills for those who are interested in a transition from engineering to management positions and for those who find that complex managerial situations require some deeper technical understanding. It is also ideal for new entrants in oil and gas industry too
MSc in Oil and Gas Technology is a program of lectures, projects, thesis, and research open lab ware. As a matter of fact the program provides access (24/7) to students on very expensive high-tech instrumentation that regularly will not have the chance to see all of them at once and openly work with them in any place in the world. That includes: Small/wide angle x-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS), x-ray diffraction (XRD), various types of microscopes such as transmission, scanning with energy dispersion system, and atomic force (TEM, SEM/EDX, AFM), gas chromatography combustion for isotope ratio mass spectrometry (GC/C/IRMS), differential scanning calorimetry and thermo gravimetric analyzer (DSC/TGA), ground penetrating radar (GPR) and many other surface and fuel science instruments
