It is a new generation of Masters Program that covers the area of Business Engineering Science and Technology (MBEST), which is most wanted in Industry worldwide.

The Program has a duration of 3 academic semesters and provides a total of 90 ECTS.

It is a highly academic and professional Program, providing knowledge and skills for those who are interested in a transition from engineering to management positions and for those who find that complex managerial situations require some deeper technical understanding.

Who may apply?
MSc in Oil and Gas Technology has been especially designed for Engineers and related science graduates (Chemistry, Geology, Physics, Mathematics, Accounting, Business Administration etc.).
Can I attend this MSc program if I don’t have an engineering or related science background?
Yes, but you may attend first undergraduate core courses in drilling and production engineering for one semester. In this case you are going to complete your MSc program in 4 semesters. Please note that we do not charge for undergraduate courses.
Can I apply without having my degree yet?
Yes, provided that by October 1st of the new academic year you will have received your undergraduate degree.
Why should I choose this MSc?
The structure of this MSc combines Business Engineering Science and Technology (MBEST). Furthermore, our MBEST is 60 ECTS with an MSc Thesis of another 30 ECTS and provides very expensive high-tech instrumentation.
How do you select students?
We have some objective criteria for student selection; e.g. type of degree, overall results, language score, etc. If it is deemed necessary, we may conduct an interview, too. It is important, however, for us the potential student to demonstrate a strong motivation towards our MSc Course.
How do you select students for financial aid?
It is a combination of an excellent performance on undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
Is a Program in Petroleum Engineering suitable for a female student?
As a matter of fact, it is. In Oil Industry the percentages of female employees are constantly increasing; women are mostly welcome in all major petroleum companies. Besides, our MSc program combines Business Administration with Engineering Science and Technology, which is ideal for a career.
Why do extra processing fees apply for late applicants?
A critical parameter in organizing our MSc Program as excellent as possible is the number of entrants. Late applicants, although welcomed, differentiate this policy. The required fees compensate this differentiation. Besides it is only applicable for those who will finally be accepted. Please also note that students who have not received their degrees yet, can still apply before July 7th with full privileges.
What is the research open labware?

Here at DUTH we have been granted a large sum of money to upgrade our facilities. Rolware is a policy which welcomes outsiders to come and work with us on these facilities.

As an MSc student, may I work on these facilities?
It is a part of our core design of MSc in Oil and Gas Technology that the students carry out most of their Group Projects and Master Thesis on these facilities.
Is it difficult to become familiar with these instruments?
There are instruments which require a lot of experience and there are others that do not. Our technicians will help you gain the maximum skills and experience possible during your studies.
Is it compulsory to attend lab work?
There are lab demonstrations which are compulsory. Nothing else is compulsory, but it would be a strategic mistake for your studies to miss this part. For instance, our small angle X-ray scattering instrument (SAXS) costs €300,000 and is the only one in Greece. It is almost 70 times more expensive than your tuition. Are you planning to omit to put your hand on such an instrument?
