The Department of Materials Science and Technology of the University of Crete announces a limited number of postgraduate student positions for the academic year 2023-2024.
The aim of the Postgraduate Program of the Department of Materials Science and Technology is to prepare MSc students for excellent career prospects in the rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of materials science and technology. The educational and research activities of the program provide an integrated approach and in-depth training, with emphasis on conducting innovative research in the following cutting-edge fields of Materials Science and Technology:
- Optoelectronics – Magnetic materials – Nanotechnology
- Polymers – Colloids
- Theoretical – Computational Materials Science
- Synthetic Chemistry of Materials
- Biomaterials – Biomolecules
Successful completion of the Postgraduate Program leads to a Postgraduate Diploma (MSc) after 4 semesters of study that include the mandatory attendance of courses and the preparation and writing of a Master’s Thesis. The program is in English and requires full-time participation. As part of their training, postgraduate students assist in the instruction of undergraduate courses. There no tuition fees.
Graduates of the first cycle of studies of Greek universities or equivalent institutions abroad have the right to apply for the program. Eligible candidates should hold a degree in Sciences, Engineering and Health Sciences. Good knowledge of English (B2 level and above) is required.
The undergraduate study curricula of eligible candidates should be sufficiently compatible with the curriculum of Materials Science and Technology in the sense that prior studies have offered a solid background, ensuring successful educational outcomes. Candidates not yet graduated during the admissions period are also eligible applicants, provided that they reasonably expect to have their first degree awarded until the end of October 2023.
The academic criteria that are taken into account for the selection, as defined in the Postgraduate Studies Regulations, include the undergraduate degree, grades in courses related to the subject of the program, the performance in a diploma thesis (where this is provided for the first cycle of studies), as well as the applicant’s relevant research or professional activity.
