Field work is an essential part of the students' studies and constitutes a compulsory supplement of the theory, exercises and laboratories. Field  Courses include field trips to Greek regions of special geological interest. They are carried out according to the School's regulation.
 
Participation to the ten days of Field Mapping (6th semester) is compulsory.

Field training comprise:
