– Expression of interest for attending the Postgraduate Programme “Modern Exploitation of Marble and Natural Stones”

The Department of Mineral Resources Engineering of the University of Western Macedonia intends to establish a new postgraduate program on the modern exploitation of marble and natural stones, following modern international and domestic practices and trends in the extraction and processing of marble and other natural stones. The twelve courses of the MSc “Modern Exploitation of Marble and Natural Stones” cover this subject from all aspects of interest to engineers, geologists, and scientists of related specialties who aim to be active or are active in the specific sector of the mining industry. The content of the courses will cover current developments in research and exploitation, with emphasis on technology, circular economy and environmental protection.
The MSc is addressed to graduates of Mineral Resources Engineers, Mining – Metallurgical Engineers, engineers of related specialties and Geologists who wish to join or are already active in the field of marble and natural stone exploitation, and want to acquire special knowledge, upgrade the knowledge they already have, and get acquainted with modern trends and developments in this field. If you are interested in this program, we invite you to fill in the form below. The data collected will help us better shape and organize the program:
