Welcome to GeoEnviromental Risks and Resources Masters of Science International Course

TEI of Crete welcomes you to the "GeoEnviromental Risks and Resources" Masters of Science International Course (GEORR). The MSC is hosted in Chania at the Department of Environmental & Natural Resources Engineering.

The Master of Science Course Geoenvironmental Resources & Risks - GEORR aims to provide extensive knowledge & expertise in the fields of Earth & Environmental Sciences.

The identification, availability, management and protection of georesources is a primary goal for human advancement and a major topic of interest for environmental planning and protection. The sustainable use of georesources and the relief of problems associated with their use, such as the effect of pollution, are issues of fundamental importance for global Earth's environment. The study and monitoring of geoenvironmental hazards is of fundamental importance for the society both for the effects on the population and the damage caused on the infrastructures. The geoenvironmental evaluation of localization of high risk industrial sites, of major public works, and the georisk's safe selection of waste disposal sites, will be everyday a more important issue to save human lives and protect properties.


      The purpose of the course is the education and training of high level graduates in the field of geoenvironmental natural resources and natural disasters. Through the M.Sc. Course, students acquire modern interdisciplinary background and expertise in Geoenvironmental Sciences, powerful skills for academic and professional expanding their activities abroad.

Course duration

The duration for the award of the M.Sc. is four semesters (full time), of which the fourth is for the preparation of the thesis in collaboration with National and European research laboratories.

Course Structure

The M.Sc. Course consists of two years of study (120 credits). The curriculum focus on the study of natural resources and geoenvironmental hazards. The course is entirely taught in English stimulating the students to open to the professional world outside Greece and, on the other hand allowing foreign students to study in Greece. This international atmosphere creates a constructive exchange of experiences and cultures, making the students ready for international market. This curriculum allows also the presence of incoming ERASMUS students.

Research Field

Indicative scientific fields of expertise offered by the M.Sc. Course are:

Groundwater Resources & Hydrogeological Hazards

Environmental geophysics

Geographic Information Systems & Remote Sensing.

Geodynamics, Georisks and Seismic hazard .

Computational modeling and simulation of seismic behavior of structures.

Contamination hazard, territorial planning and coastal Systems.

Geochemistry & Geomaterials

Environmental Hazard, Disaster Management & Civil protection.

Geoenergy Resources.
