Faculty of Engineering
History and Development
Cyprus International University (CIU) was established in Nicosia in 1997 within the vision to provide equivalent infrastructure, technical and physical capabilities that of the best universities of Turkey, Europe and United States. The Faculty of Engineering started offering education programs with the establishment of Cyprus International University in 1997. According to their order of establishment, these education programs are: Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Information Systems Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Energy Systems Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering and Petrol, Oil and Gas Engineering.
Mission and Vision
At an era where Bologna Process and education takes place, an infrastructure needs to be developed that considers the development of engineering science and fast pacing technologies. To achieve this, we need to continuously observe and renovate the curriculum and the contents of curriculum programs; use active teaching and learning methods and develop modern measurement and evaluation systems; successfully apply European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) provide continuous improvement and sustainability in education and training.
To provide required skills to our students by encouraging active participation in classes in order to sustain them becoming engineers who have the utter confidence to use their knowledge and skills.To train engineers who question the problems before producing solutions and have considerable problem solving, design and analysis skills. To provide entrepreneurial engineers who are able to develop technologies and projects that can participate in group work both on national and international projects integrated within the industry.
To ensure that our students have environmental awareness; acquired professional ethics as a principle, and are sensitive to artistic and cultural values.To train engineers who consider community welfare and safety.
Every serious and ambitious university has to offer qualified education and training in addition to rigorous research and community services in order to take a place in the world of Science. A qualified education system can be demonstrated by accreditations done by national and international Accreditation Organizations. Based on this fact, the undergraduate programs of Faculty of Engineering have applied, started and in some cases acquired the accreditations done by national and international organizations such as MÜDEK and ASIIN. While Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering and Electrical-Electronic Engineering programs are already accredited by MÜDEK, Industrial Engineering and Information Systems Engineering programs are still in the process of accreditation.
The Faculty of Engineering has well-equipped and well-experienced staff and faculty members. Our well-developed laboratories are exceptional when compared to the regional universities and help us providing contemporary undergraduate and graduate curriculums with modern teaching methods that enable students to learn their disciplinary areas effectively.
The students of Faculty of Engineering attend to their courses in modern classrooms that have all the equipment and facilities needed to sustain their education and training. Cyprus International University (CIU) offers a modern lively campus, an organized library, student dormitories, recreational areas, both indoor and outdoor sports fields that encourage all CIU students to enjoy and be proud of during their education life.
