Faculty of Engineering

The CIU Faculty of Engineering consists of Computer Engineering, Information Systems Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Petroleum and Gas Engineering and Bioengineering.

All Departments within the Faculty of Engineering take part in national and international research undertaking original designs constructed to advance the industrial production of engineering systems ensuring short-term high efficiency. Students help develop new technologies to solve existing problems involving the design projects the results of which are published in international journals and in interdisciplinary information exchanges. The Faculty instills in its students an awareness of the environment and features the principles of professional ethics. While training engineers it produces information and treats art and culture with sensitivity.

During their introduction, candidates who enroll in the CIU Faculty of Engineering along with those who have graduated from the Engineering Departments will train as modern engineers using types of equipment that they may encounter in their future careers.

Some of the areas that graduate engineers can develop within the Faculty are: Computer Engineering, Information-processing Management, Computer Networks, Computer Installation, Computer Network and System Management, Operating Systems, Audio and Database Design, Industrial Software Development and Artificial Intelligence.

The variety of careers open to graduates from the Engineering Department includes Information Systems Engineering, Computer Engineering, Business Education, Telecommunication Systems, Company Management, Banking, the Automotive Industry, various areas of Health Information Systems and Air Transport Shows.

Electrical and Electronics Engineering consists of two disciplines, namely Electrical Engineering and Electronics Engineering where the former deals with the production and distribution of electrical energy and the design, production, operation and maintenance of the necessary equipment. Electronics engineering covers electronics, communications and signal processing technologies, electromagnetic branches of engineering. Graduates from this department are able to work in industrial sectors covering alternative energy, automation systems and those producing high voltage equipment.

Industrial Engineering covers large sections of a variety of engineering including process design, production management, ergonomics and operations research. Also covered are the manufacture of products, quality control, work organisation and planning processes through to the distribution of products. This department is also responsible for educating engineers about continuous development and figuring out ways to take part in all of these areas.

Energy Systems Engineering covers traditional energy systems as well as those alternative designs of energy using the technologies of solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower, biofuel, hydrogen, fossil fuel and nuclear energy. The economic, environmental and political dimensions of this branch of engineering are covered.

Civil Engineering and Construction covers construction management, materials, transportation, plus the construction and design of structures such as bridges, highways, tunnels, railways, ports, airports, sewage networks, dams and ponds.

The Environmental Engineering Department produces engineers who effectively and healthily use the natural resources of air and water. They look after soil contamination removal and control the level of technologies related to the design, development and educates engineers to take the necessary measures for the protection of the ecological balance.

Bioengineering sciences establishes the relationship between genetics, basic medical sciences and engineering. The basic information of humans, animals, plants and microorganisms is derived about the structures. Graduates of this Department may have careers in medicine, ophthalmology or be in charge of the production of artificial organs – all sectors requiring the use of a variety of industries, such as bioprocesses devices.

The Faculty of Engineering, with its experienced staff of instructors, is an example for the development of the TRNC. The University has completed its development resulting in it owning comprehensive laboratories, contemporary undergraduate and graduate curricula and new teaching methods that allows students to learn the areas of infrastructure issues.

Applicants to the CIU wanting to study in the Faculty of Engineering will find it easy to form a selection decision with the opportunities offered by the possibility of using the Laboratory facilities.

Faculty of Engineering students receive tuition in ultra contemporary classrooms and have modern wellness facilities provided on campus along with dormitories, recreational and sports facilities. The Faculty and its students enjoy the responsibility of integration providing solidarity with the other university students.


The mission of the Engineering Faculty is to train students to become fine engineers equipped with both theoretical and practical information. They will be proficient in English, able to work dynamically in a team, capable of solving problems with careful analysis and full of other ethical values with the help of the offered state of the art education assisted by strong academic staff and a practical teaching program. This will allow them to seek careers in the highly sought after areas of construction, computer, electric-electronic, civil, energy, information technologies, environmental and bioengineering. Other aims of the Engineering Faculty are to become an innovative science foundation providing education on an international level carrying out scientific research and industrial services and closely observing the evolution of global technology and producing innovative technologies.
