Engineering Studies

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

The process of creating and maintaining new machines, structures and more using mathematics as well as social, economic and scientific knowledge is known as engineering. There are many subdivisions of engineering dealing with everything from the environment to electricity.

 

Greece developed their education system with higher education at the top. Over 40% of all Greeks live in Athens and there is also where the best opportunities to pursue an higher education level is. Bordered by Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey, Greece is a tourist pearl with one of the world's fantastic beaches.

Crete ranks as the largest of the Greek islands in regards to population and size. It is an essential part of the national economy rich in Greek culture and heritage. It is renowned for its wide variety of flower and bird species.

Why clay minerals?

Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest.

In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as an important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials.... [-]
