The Postgraduate Program “Geoenvironmental Resources & Risks” was established by the Department of Natural Resources & Environment Engineering of the TEI of Crete in collaboration with UNESCO Headquarters “Solid Earth Physics & Geohazards Risk Reduction” in Chianidenos, and today at the Department of Electronic Engineering of the Hellenic Mediterranean University.
The object of the GeoRR MSc is to provide a high level of knowledge in a highly interdisciplinary field, combining geoenvironmental sciences (geology, geophysics, geochemistry, and environmental chemistry) with physics, geotechnology and environmental engineering.
The purpose of the postgraduate program is to acquire skills, basic knowledge, and skills, which are necessary for the assimilation and implementation of the latest developments in an interdisciplinary approach, which is required by the nature of the scientific fields involved.
The combination of theoretical courses, practical field exercises, and knowledge of experimental-analytical techniques and data analysis, contributes:
a) to create new scientists with sufficient knowledge and skills for a successful career in the international private and public sector,
b) in the connection of postgraduate education and specialization with the active involvement in the research process, and
c) the necessary preparation for further academic development through postgraduate doctoral studies.
At the same time, it is possible to carry out a part of the studies in cooperating European universities with the extensive use of the ERASMUS + program.
MSc GeoRR has now gone through a successful academic course.
