The program admits candidates with a reputable background in Engineering and Sciences. Specifically, the program is designed with prerequisite knowledge obtained by graduates with a B.Sc. in Engineering (such as Civil, Mechanical, Chemical, Environmental and others). Candidates from other fields of Engineering or Sciences (such as Electrical, Computer, Physics, Geology and Chemistry) will be expected to take prerequisites courses before admission to the Master in Petroleum Engineering program. Prerequisite subjects are considered those taught in the courses of applied mathematics, computational methods, solid mechanics and fluid mechanics.
Applicants must demonstrate competitive academic standards and top grades in English language. All program students must be able to demonstrate their abilities in English. For a quick reference to the level of English knowledge, equates to a C-grade at English GCSE or an IELTS score of 6.5, or for a Test of English as a foreign language (ETS TOEFL®) a minimum score of 550 (paper based), 213 (computer based) or 80 (internet-based) will be required.
The candidates must apply officially for admission to the program by the specified date. There is only one admission period for every academic year, in September. The applications are evaluated by the Hydrocarbon Committee of the Engineering School and approved by the Engineering Council.
The selection of the students is based on the following criteria:
- Quality and academic record.
- Achievements of the applicant in undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
- Promise for a professional and academic career in petroleum engineering.
If the candidates do not fulfill the above criteria the Engineering School reserves the right to admit fewer students than the announced positions.
Τhe fees for the postgraduate program Master in Petroleum Engineering is € 8.000 and will be paid in installments as follows:
- € 1000 for confirmation of the position by mid-July
- € 2000 beginning of fall semester by early September
- € 3000 beginning of spring semester by early January
