Since the Academic year 2001-02, the Department of Marine Sciences has been running an one-year MSc Course Program on "Integrated Coastal Zone Management". To date, there have been more than 160 graduates.
The course runs in collaboration with scientists of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) and the Fisheries Research Institute (FRI). The course objective is to provide graduates with the scientific expertise required to successfully deal with problems related to Integrated Coastal Management, focusing on the ecological and physical processes, ecosystem degradation/restoration, the sustainable management of biological resources, Climate Change impact and geo-hazard risk assessments and the sustainable development of the Coastal Zone.
The Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) postgraduate program aims to provide scientific training through both lectures and hands-on exercises. Its ultimate goals are:
Postgraduate students are trained in:
In addition, postgraduate students are trained:
Graduate studies with economic relevance
With 6,000 islands or islets and more than 13,000 km of coastline, Greece's economy is naturally dependent on maritime activities. The numbers can be overwelming: more that 1/3 of the Greek population lives in the coastal zone, and over 18% of the annual Gross National Product is produced from tourism associated to the marine and coastal environment. The fishing and aquaculture sector yields 284 millions and 345 million euros respectively, while fishing activities secure the employment of more than 37,500 persons and maintain the cultural status of the Aegean archipelago.
The MSc program is structured as a two-semester program of modules, containing also an MSc Dissertation. It consists of a core of mandatory modules, as well as options.
