School of Mineral Resources Engineering
The primary goal of the Department of Mineral Resources Engineering is to educate engineers in a broad range of scientific and technical activities related to the extraction and processing of minerals.
The coursework in the Mineral Resources Engineering Department (MRED) focuses in particular on industrial minerals and energy resources, which play an important role in the development of the Greek economy of Greece, thus covering the present and future needs of the country.
The changing demands for minerals influence the development and utilization of modern methods for exploration and exploitation. The dynamic changes in the market conditions and the available technology generate the need for training engineers who are able to face successfully new challenges. Hence, the courses offered in the Department aim to deliver a balanced mix of fundamental skills and knowledge of specialized fields to ensure that the graduates have the skills and flexibility required for success in the very competitive global market.
