Qualification Awarded BSc Mechanical Engineering
Level Of Qualification Bachelor (1st Cycle Degree)
Offered by Department of Mechanical Engineering
Mode of Study Full Time or Part Time

The Program is designed to provide the students with the scientific and professional provisions of the Mechanical Engineering profession. The Program constitutes a balance between the academic and the practical directions. The program provides practical experience in the use of modern engineering instruments and reinforced understanding through computerized and other experimentation. It prepares its graduates for direct employment as mechanical engineers and lays the foundation for further education.

Specialization in Oil & Gas Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering, in addition to the general Mechanical Engineering direction, offers the option to Mechanical Engineering students to specialize in areas of Mechanical Engineering that are of increasing importance in the Cyprus, as well as the international environment. To this end, the Department has established the Oil and Gas Engineering specialization.

The aim of the BSc in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Oil and Gas is to serve both the Upstream and Downstream Oil and Gas Production and therefore prepare professionals to work in hydrocarbon exploration and processing, with knowhow in drilling and reservoir characterization, analysis and design of pipeline systems, industrial process (refineries and petrochemicals) and simulations, as members of multi-disciplinary teams. The specialization is intended to provide students the following competences:
- Understand the geological and structural processes that control basin development.
- Interpret and evaluate data for reservoir characterization.
- Become familiar with drilling, extraction and upstream technology.
- Become familiar with downstream oil and gas production, including petrochemical processing.
- Understand the whole processing cycle of hydrocarbons, including LNG production, GTL fuels, hydrogen, ammonia, methanol industrial production.
- Solve mathematical models for the simulation and control of processes.
- Evaluate techno-economic issues in the processing industry.
- Design pipeline systems
- Integrate and critically assess relevant information in order to make competent engineering arguments.

The language of instruction for both the general direction and the specialization is English.
1. Apply a variety of methods, including mathematical analysis, computational modelling, or practical experiments, to solve mechanical engineering related problems.
2. Use appropriate methods to pursue research or other detailed investigation of technical issues consistent with their level of knowledge and understanding.
3. Design solutions to unfamiliar problems, possibly involving other disciplines and their creativity to develop new and original ideas and methods.
4. Design and conduct analytic, modelling and experimental investigations, to critically evaluate data and draw conclusions
5. Apply their knowledge and understanding for developing practical skills for solving problems, conducting investigations, and designing engineering devices and processes.
6. Recognise the wider, non-technical implications of engineering practice, ethical, environmental, commercial and industrial.
7. Evaluate the capabilities and limitations of existing and emerging technologies in the field of mechanical engineering.
8. Demonstrate the ability to integrate knowledge from different branches, and handle complexity, and to understand applicable techniques and methods, their limitations and the non-technical implications of engineering practice.
9. Apply new and emerging technologies in their branch of engineering.
10. Use diverse methods, such as technical reports and technical presentations to communicate effectively with the engineering community and with society at large.
The graduates of the Program have the knowledge and skills required for the design, implementation, and administration of mechanical engineering systems. They fulfil the requirements for employment in the public or private sectors as mechanical engineers. They can also be employed in the industry in areas related to mechanical engineering systems.

The graduates of the Program can also be employed as educators in public or private secondary schools.

The graduates of the program are eligible to register to the Technical Chamber of Cyprus (ETEK).
Specific Admission Requirements
There are no specific admission requirements for this Program. Candidates can be admitted to the Program only if they satisfy the general admission requirements of the University.

Recognition of Prior Learning
There are no specific arrangements for recognition of prior learning for this Program. Candidates can be granted transfer credits according to the general arrangements for recognition of prior learning of the University.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
There are no specific examination regulations, assessment and grading methods employed by this Program. The examination regulations, assessment methods and grading system for this Program are the same as the relevant general university regulations.

Graduation Requirements
Students are eligible for graduation after successfully completing 240 ECTS credits in the courses listed in the Program Structure.

Furthermore, a student can graduate only if their CGPA is greater or equal to 5.00 out of 10.00. Graduating students with a CGPA less than 5.00 might have to take extra courses or repeat a number of courses in order to improve their grades.

Access to Further Studies
The graduates of the Program have access to graduate studies (2nd and 3rd Cycle) in disciplines related with the discipline of mechanical engineering.
