Postgraduate MSc Degree in Applied Physics

with specialization in Environmental Physics


During the three semesters, the student has to complete successfully seven (7) compulsory specialization courses: Atmospheric Physics, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Methods of data analysis, Numerical Methods - Applications to Geophysical Fluid, Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry, Atmospheric Dynamics, Methods and instruments of environmental measurements, and six (6) elective specialization courses from the thirteenoffered: Atmospheric boundary layer, Synoptic Meteorology, Urban Environmental Physics, Climate - Climate Variations, Physical Oceanography, Principles and applications of Remote Sensing, Physics of the Middle and Upper Atmosphere, Atmospheric modeling, Environmental Management, Essentials of Soil Physics and surface Hydrology, Cloud Physics and Mesoscale phenomena, Building Energy design and Specific Topic within Environmental Physics-Meteorology.

The duration of postgraduate studies leading to the Degree of Specialization in Environmental Physics is three semesters and the maximum allowed duration is four semesters.

Attendance to these courses is mandatory. Successful completion of each course requires the mark 6 out of 10 at the examinations.

In addition to these courses and during the third semester, the student should undertake individually a research project leading to a postgraduate thesis, which is evaluated by a three member committee. The final evaluation of the research thesis is responsibility of the Section of Environmental Physics - Meteorology.

A faculty member is assigned as the tutor to each student upon entering the postgraduate program. The tutor follows the progress of the student and approves the courses selected by the student.

The graduate students in order to obtain their Postgraduate Degree in Physics with Specialization in Environmental Physics are required to successfully complete three semesters (full-time) or 6 semesters (part-time) that correspond to a total 90 ECTS.
