Petroleum Engineering postgraduate program of the Technical University of Crete is among the 12 top European Schools for a petroleum engineering, technology or geoscience course, according to http://www.oilpro.com - a professional network for the Oil and Gas Industry (top picks for European University Oil and Gas courses).
«The Technical University of Crete made it onto our list mainly because of its industry connections and fine reputation. Also, the popular holiday destination of Crete would be a wonderful place to study, with its natural beauty and rich history. Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, or Hellas as called from ancient times has a reputation for academia, but due to the recent financial issues, would be very affordable if you’re taking time out of work for a masters’ degree. Industry connections, sponsors and collaboration partners include Schlumberger, Hellenic Petroleum and Geotech.»
