The aim of the post-graduate degree programme “Technical Project Management” is to train and prepare graduate engineers to occupy responsible management positions in all phases of design and construction of technical projects. In order to achieve this objective, students should comprehend the following units: DXT50 – Principles of Project Organisation and Management, DXT51 – Construction Engineering, DXT60 – Legislation and Safety of Technical Projects and DXT61 – Economics of Technical Projects. After the successful completion of unit DXT50, the students will be able to know in depth and apply the principles of business management, how a construction site is organized and managed and will have an in-depth knowledge of information systems in the management of technical projects. Successful completion of unit DXT51 leads the postgraduate students to know and be able to apply the principles governing the analysis and design of construction, the principles of construction technology while having in-depth knowledge of construction materials and equipment for the construction of civil engineering works. Unit DXT60 aims at understanding the legislation on the execution of civil engineering works, the safety of construction works and the environmental impact of works and construction sites. Finally, with unit DXT61, postgraduate students will have an in-depth knowledge of the principles of economics of civil engineering projects, economic planning and estimation of projects as well as time and financial planning of projects.

The Post-graduate programme accepts graduates or higher institution diplomas of related disciplines. The programme is offered in Greek.
The knowledge of a foreign language and good computer-Internet skills would be useful for the successful participation in the programme.
Holders of a degree or diploma of higher education means graduates of Greek Universities or Polytechnics or Higher School of Fine Arts or Higher School of Pedagogical and Technological Education or Higher Technological Educational Institutions (ATEI) or those who hold academically equivalent first cycle degrees from recognized foreign educational institutions with the degrees awarded by the Greek Higher Educational Institutions, in accordance with the provisions of article 304 of Law No. 4957/2022 (Government Gazette 141/21.07.2022, vol.)
For the evaluation of the application to the Postgraduate Studies Programme, it will be examined whether the candidate’s institution of study is or may be included in the National Register of Recognised Higher Education Institutions of Foreign Countries and whether the candidate’s degree is or may be included in the National Register of Types of Degrees of Recognised Institutions of Foreign Countries.
The Hellenic Open University, if the degree is included in the list of article 307 of Law No. 4957/2022, must request a “Certificate of Place of Study”, which is issued and sent by the foreign university. If the place of study or part of the studies is confirmed as the Greek territory, the degree is not recognized, unless the part of the studies that took place in the Greek territory is in a public higher education institution or in a recognized foreign educational institution within the meaning of paragraph b) of article 299 of Law No. 4957/2022.
1st year of studies
2nd year of studies
In the first year of studies, the first chosen unit must be DCHT50 and/or DCHT51 and, if a third unit is to be chosen, it can be either DCHT60 or DCHT61. Students cannot choose both DCHT60 and DCHT61 unless they have successfully completed at least one of the DCHT50 and DCHT51. The Post-graduate Thesis is carried out either after the successful completion of all the units or in parallel with the last unit of the course (DCHT60 or DCHT61).
It is clarified that in order to complete the course in two academic years, the student must successfully complete three modules in the first year of study (according to the above guidelines) and the last module in the second year in parallel with the post-graduate thesis.
In the process of declaring a Thesis, the previous year’s Thesis should be exhausted first and then the next year’s Thesis declaration should begin.
However, the presentation of the post-graduate thesis will only take place after the successful completion of all the units in the course.
In order to obtain the degree, the successful completion of all four units of the course and the successful completion of the post-graduate thesis is mandatory.
