Welcome to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at European University Cyprus. As chairperson, it is my honor to introduce to you the Department and briefly highlight some points that make CSE a great place to study.
The Department was created in the 1980’s (under Cyprus College) to address the needs of the then emerging information technology. Over the last 35 years, the rapid growth of information technology and communications has been closely tracked by the Department which actively contributes to academic as well as industry workforce needs both nationally and internationally. Our Industrial Advisory Board guides us towards more effective integration of our degrees with the local software and hardware industry as well as emerging and future needs in the field of information and communication technologies.
In both undergraduate and postgraduate level, the Department is committed in providing world-class education. At the Bachelor level, in English, we currently offer degrees in: Computer Science, Microsoft® Information Systems/Web Technologies, Computer Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Civil and Environmental Engineering. In Greek, we currently offer a degree in Mathematics. All programs of study (where applicable) follow the guidelines of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and those of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). The Computer Science, Computer Engineering and the Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees are recognized by the Cyprus Scientific and Technical Chamber (ETEK) a statutory technical advising body for the state and a point of reference for engineers in Cyprus. At the postgraduate levels we offer, all in English, degrees in Computer Science (MSc and PhD), Information Systems (MSc on distance education) and Occupational Safety and Health (MSc and PhD). Relevant information for all programs is available further below on this page.
CSE faculty are active in a wide range of research areas. From mobile computing, networks and cognitive radio, to video games, decision support systems and high performance computing. The Department operates several research laboratories such as the Information and Communication Technologies – Enhanced Education laboratory; the Center for Game Studies, the Decision Support & System Optimization laboratory, the Mobile Computing Center and others. At these centers, faculty either coordinate or act as contributing members and participate in national and/or international projects to perform research in a diverse range of theoretical as well as, most usually, applied areas.
The Department possesses a reputation for excellence in education and in producing graduates of the highest quality. Our graduates are equipped with strong foundations leading to, either integration to the industry or continuing onto further education and/or research. Our alumni have moved on to either enter universities abroad (mostly UK and US) for graduate studies; or find employment in large companies in Cyprus or abroad, or have founded their own successful businesses.
We continuously work on enhancing our education and research activities towards realizing our goal of becoming a constant point of reference and excellence for high academic achievement in Cyprus the Mediterranean region and Europe.
