Degrees of M.Sc.

The Section of Environmental Physics and Meteorology is responsible for the operation of the courses of study for the award of the Degrees of M.Sc. in Environmental Physics and Meteorology. The duration of the acquisition of the Degrees of M.Sc. is three (3) semesters.

The candidate students of the M.Sc. should provide proof of adequate knowledge of the use of the English language (level B2). In the event that a candidate fails to provide such a proof, he/she will undertake an English language exam.

Moreover, the Section of Environmental Physics and Meteorology collaborates with:

  • the Faculty of Chemistry, Geology and Biology of the University of Athens, for the award of the M.Sc. in Oceanography
  • the National Technical University of Athens and the Hellenic Centre of Marine Research, for the award of the M.Sc. in the Naval and Marine Engineering.

Degree of Ph.D.

The Degree of the Ph.D. in Environmental Physics and Meteorology is awarded when research is proved that leads to scientific evolution. The Ph.D. candidates should hold the M.Sc. in Environmental Physics and Meteorology or the former M.Sc. degree offered by the Section. Their admission to the Ph.D. programme is based mainly on their grade in B.Sc. and M.Sc. courses. There is an exception only for Ph.D. candidates that hold a Master degree from outside Greece and their admission is considered by the General Assembly. In this special case the candidate is obliged to attend at least two courses of Basic Physics as well as at least two from the courses that offers the specialization. The courses that the candidate should attend are decided by the supervision committee and they are approved by the General Assembly.

The duration for the acquisition of the Ph.D. degree is at least 6 semesters after the acquisition of the M.Sc. degree.
