  2. perform world-class research work in a Department with international reputation,
  3. attend and present their research work and achievements in national and international conferences, workshop and meetings, and
  4. contribute to the teaching activities of the Department.

Applications are accepted from graduates of all engineering and science departments. Applications are also accepted by students who are in their last year of their undergraduate curriculum and will graduate during the summer.

All applications should be submitted electronically through https://matrix.upatras.gr/sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/zups_pg_adm for Greek-speaking candidates and through https://apps.chemeng.upatras.gr for non-Greek speaking candidates. The two platforms will be open from Monday May 11 through Friday June 26. To apply for admission, interested candidates should prepare, upload, and submit through the above site the following documents:

  1. Application (download relevant form from here)

Following an initial screening of the application package of each candidate, the Committee of Graduate Studies of the Department will select those applicants who will be invited to an oral interview. In the interview we will examine the scientific background of the prospective graduate students and their potential to carry out research work at the highest possible level.

The candidates will be informed about the date of the interview, which will be conducted remotely for those outside Greece, before the deadline of June 26.

For more information, interested candidates can send an email to: phd-studies@chemeng.upatras.gr.
