DURATION AND CREDITS
The duration of the program is 13 months for full time students with flexibility allowing longer part time participation (2 or 3 years). The program provides a total of 90 ECTS distributed to 30 credits per semester or 40 credit hours (20 hours per semester) and a thesis.
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 at EMaTh.Tech. It is a new generation of Masters Program we developed that covers the area of Business Engineering Science and Technology (MBEST), which is most wanted in Industry 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. Again, it is ideal for new entrants in oil and gas industry too. The course is fully recognized by the Greek State (see the MSc in OGT act pdf-GR).
MSc in Oil and Gas Technology is a program of lectures, projects, thesis, and research open lab ware. The latter is a strong asset here at EMaTh.Tech. As a matter of fact the program provides access (24/7) to our 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 (see our brochure pdf).
CH/S = Credit Hours per Semester
For more details see the program syllabus or see our brochure pdf.
Each taught semester comprises of 18 weeks; the third semester where MSc research is conducted is approximately 20 weeks. The program starts on October 1st and ends at October 31st next year.
Students with excellent performance on their undergraduate studies in engineering or a relevant science discipline such as geology, physics, chemistry or mathematics, from a Greek or foreign University will be accepted in the program without pre-requirements. Other entrants are possible to attend the course but they may be required to attend classes of undergraduate petroleum engineering technology core courses (production and drilling engineering).
In addition to the academic qualifications, motivation and industrial experience are taken into consideration. Professionals, based on their work experience, are welcome too.
Two letters of recommendation need to accompany the student's application form.
All applicants must document English language qualifications e.g. TOEFL (IBT 83), IELTS (6.5), Cambridge/Michigan Certificate, or equivalent. You must normally have achieved the score we need, not more than two years before you begin your postgraduate program with us. If you do not have the required scores, you may arrange an assessment of your level in English at our Centre of Foreign Languages at EMaTh.Tech. Please contact us for further information.
SOCIETY OF PETROLEUM ENGINEERS (SPE)
Free of charge membership in the Society of Petroleum Engineers for al MSc students for one year after their graduation. Young people are the link between the present and the future. Careers are challenging for this generation, and young professionals stress the importance for growth and development. Here at EMaTh.Tech, we strongly believe that being a part of the Society of Petroleum Engineers can prove to be extremely beneficial for both academics and students alike. Therefore we have founded the Kavala Section on March of 2013; and we built a centre of professional excellence in Greece. As a result every student that enrols in our MSc program becomes also a member of SPE automatically on our expenses which will provide a great asset for your CV and your future professional activities since it is a distinction for young professionals, providing them a competitive edge.
ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN IN SCIECE (AWIS)
Free of charge membership for all female students in the Association of Women in Science. Women in Science are playing in both Industry and Academia an important role. To this end, we introduce our female students in Petroleum Engineering Technology to the AWIS; hoping to be a part of a movement that will increase the opportunity of women in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine).
For a number of cases there will be a financial aid up to €2,000. Please write a short essay in the designated section of your application form where you explain why you feel you are a good candidate for financial aid.
Please note that financial aid will not be considered for late applicants and part time entrants.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You don't need to pay in advance for English assessment and application form processing. If you are accepted to the program these charges will be added to your tuition fees.
Above Tuition Fees refer to full time students. Part time students' tuition is: €5.000 for 2 years and €5.500 for 3 years.
You may download the application form and then send it to us either by email or mail.
We will accept scanned documents at the application stage, but you may be asked to provide original copies of your documents at a later date.
