Cyprus International University (CIU) was established in Nicosia in 1997 with the vision of providing infrastructure, technical and physical capabilities equivalent to those of the best universities of Turkey, Europe, and the United States. The Faculty of Engineering started offering education programs with the establishment of Cyprus International University. 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.
In the era of the Bologna Process in education, infrastructure needs to be developed considering the development of engineering science and fast pace 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, develop modern measurement and evaluation systems,successfully apply the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), and provide continuous improvement and sustainability in education and training.
We provide the required skills for our
students to develop by encouraging active participation in classes in order to encourage
them to become engineers who have the utter confidence to use their knowledge and
skills. We train engineers who question problems before producing solutions and have
considerable problem solving, design, and analysis skills. We develop entrepreneurial
engineers who are able to develop technologies and projects and that can participate in
group work both on national and international projects integrated within the
We also aim to ensure that our students: have environmental awareness, acquire professional ethics as a principle, and are sensitive to artistic and cultural values. Further, we 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 part in the world
of Science. A qualified education system can be demonstrated through accreditations from
national and international Accreditation Organizations. Based on this, the undergraduate
programs of Faculty of Engineering have applied, started, and in some cases acquired the
accreditations of national and international organizations such as MÜDEK and ASIIN.
While the Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Electrical-Electronic Engineering
programs are already accredited by MÜDEK, teh Industrial Engineering and Information
Systems Engineering programs are currently 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 provide contemporary undergraduate and graduate curriculums with modern teaching methods that enable students to learn their disciplinary areas effectively.
The students of the Faculty of Engineering attend 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, indoor and outdoor sports fields that encourage all CIU students to both enjoy and be proud of the university during their education life.
