Information for Candidates

τρένοCandidates to the Interdepartmental Postgraduate course on: "Planning, Organization, and Management of Transport systems", for short: Interdepartmental Programme of Postgraduate Studies in Transport (IDPPS-T) can be all those interested who possess a first degree of a University in Greece or equivalent abroad. The specific field in which they have their first degree must be related to the course but this requirement is broadly taken to include a wide range of disciplines and subject of first study. However, those with first degrees in Civil Engineering or Surveying Engineering get the highest marks (in the established system of objective rating of each candidate - see below).

The maximum number of postgraduate students on the IDPPS-T every year is currently set to twenty-two (22) students. Those interested are invited each year by a declaration (announcement) of the Civil Engineering Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki normally around the 1st of May. The announcement is published in the Greek daily press of Athens, Thessaloniki, Volos, Larissa, Patra, Eraklio(Crete) and Chania(Crete), as well as on the websites of the Departments of Civil Engineers and Argonomist and Topography Engineers and of IMET-EKETA.

The deadline to submit applications is normally set by the end of May. Applications are submitted to the Secretariat of the Civil Engineering Department AUTh, Hydraulics Building, University Campus, Thessaloniki 54124, Greece (1st floor, c/o Mrs. M. Katsi - Tel: +30-2310-995698).

The documents to be submitted with the application (indicatively - please check for each year as they may change slightly), are:

  • Application on a special form provided by the secretary's office of the Civil Engineering Department

  • The grade/mark of the first degree, and/or other postgraduate courses.
  • "Relevance" of the first university studies, the research and vocational experience of the candidate with the scientific fields of IDPPS-T. Normally those with first degrees in Civil or Surveying Engineering are considered fully "relevant".Candidates with first degrees in other "Technological" fields are considered 80% relevant. In Economics, law, and similar as 60% relevant. All other as 40%.
  • Knowledge of the English Language (Proficiency level otherwise written and oral exams at a date set by the secretariat).
