Integrated Master (M.Eng.)
5 year Engineering program
The School was founded in 1983 and admitted its first students in 1987. The mission of the School is to offer high quality, scientific know-how and skills to its graduates and become a reference point in research, exploitation, and utilization of mineral raw materials, energy resources, geotechnics and environmental geotechnology both in Greece and internationally. It aims to educate competent young engineers, develop innovative research, support the sustainable development and social cohesion.
The School has an integrated study program leading to a Diploma in Engineering (M.Eng) and Post-Graduate programs leading to MSc and PhD degrees. It has a strong research infrastructure of 13 laboratories and 8 research units. Thus, it can offer to its students the necessary tools in order to face the challenges of today's and future highly technical labor market successfully.
The School comprises the following three divisions, each of which includes a number of relative desciplines:
• Division of Positioning and Exploration of Mineral Resources
• Division of Mining Technology
• Division of Minerals Exploitation
Addressing today's demands and ideas for science and technology, the School of Mineral Resources Engineering puts a strong emphasis on the development of novel disciplines or subjects that have not been adequately developed up to now in Greece. It continuously updates its curriculum, while its orientation is constantly guided by the research interests of its members. Thus, it follows the state of the art in technology and sustainable development, keeping always in mind the sequence of human, mineral resources, environment and economical development.
