Qualification Awarded Master (MSc) in Electrical Engineering
Level Of Qualification Master (2nd Cycle Degree)
Offered by Department of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Informatics
Mode of Study Full Time or Part Time


The Program aims to provide the graduates with scientific knowledge, research expertise and competences in order to meet the challenging market needs and prepare them for their professional development in engineering design as well for pursuing graduate studies at the Doctorate (PhD) level.

The main objectives of the Program are to:
- Develop the students’ capacity to critically think and creatively address advanced Electrical Engineering Topics.
- Develop the technical written and oral presentation skills of the students in order to effectively disseminate their work in the form of well-structured reports and presentations.
- Equip students with postgraduate level knowledge, tools and methodologies on Advanced Electrical Engineering Topics pertinent to three areas of study: generation transmission and distribution of Electric Power via conventional or renewable energy sources, Telecommunication Systems and Automation and Control Systems
- Equip students with competent skills and experience, developing their ability to engage in the engineering design process via a systematic breakdown of real world problems, identification of design requirements and the utilization of analytical, software and experimental tools for the analysis, design, development and performance evaluation of effective solutions.
- Develop student awareness on recent advancements, key technologies, future trends and state of the art challenges in Electrical Engineering.
- Develop the ability of students to continuously learn and self-develop by accessing appropriate information sources as for example textbooks, research articles, online resources and seminars.
- Engage students in the research process by successfully applying the research methodology in a guided manner.
- Engage students in research activities in key technology fields and help them to acquire the required knowledge and develop the necessary skills that will allow them to adapt and evolve in the fast evolving discipline of Electrical Engineering and pursue further Doctoral Studies.
- Develop the students’ transferable skills needed to ensure a successful academic or professional career in the field of Electrical Engineering,
- Prepare the students for direct employment after graduation by integrating theory with practice, through activities like work placement and the preparation for certification exams.

1. Analyze real world problems in control communication and power systems, identifying their design requirements and develop and evaluate effective solutions by applying the design procedure involving the problem breakdown, modeling and design and performance evaluation.
2. Identify the theoretical foundations of communications controls and power system analysis theory.
3. Use analytical methods and modelling techniques to evaluate electrical engineering systems (control, communication, power) and components in terms of general quality attributes and possible trade-offs presented within the considered problems.
4. Analyse and design communication systems and key enabling technologies for next generation networked systems. and demonstrate awareness on the capabilities and limitations of existing and emerging communication systems.
5. Evaluate the capabilities and limitations of existing and emerging technologies in the field of power generation, transmission and distribution using sustainable and renewable energy sources.
6. Plan, design and manage industrial electrical power systems, taking into account the integration of information and communication technologies rendering the aforementioned systems “Smart”.
7. Demonstrate awareness on the forefront of knowledge in modern control theory in the field of Automation and Control Systems and how these technologies can be combined with Information and Communication Technologies and Power Systems leading to Intelligent Networks and Cyber-physical Systems.
8. Design, analyse, optimise and control complex industrial automated systems.
9. Develop competency in the research methodology.
10. Retrieve, analyze and evaluate information from different sources, including information retrieval through databases and on-line computer searches.
11. Demonstrate awareness on the role of engineers in society and the professional and ethical responsibilities of engineers.
12. Report research results and new designs in well-structured written reports and present the obtained results using presentations.
The graduates of the Program have the knowledge and skills required for the design, implementation, maintenance and administration of electrical systems related to their specialization.

Communication Systems graduates can be employed in public or private sector at internet and cellular communication providers, or communication infrastructure design and maintenance.

Power Systems graduates can seek employment in public or private sector industries related to electric power generation and distribution, companies activating in renewable energy systems, or as electrical engineer in industrial facilities.

Control Systems graduates can be employed in industry as production chain engineers, or in the design and development of automated, remotely controlled systems, and their control panels.
Student Admission Requirements:
According to the University’s regulations candidates for a master degree must submit a recognized bachelor degree or qualification deemed to be equivalent to degree level as well as the official transcripts (grade reports) of their first-degree studies. In addition, there could be special requirements for various master programs. Each School or Department can specify further admissions criteria such as a minimum average grade, or measures such as foundation courses for each program of study.

Recognition of Prior Learning
Candidates who have completed university level work in an accredited program are eligible to apply for transfer admission. Candidates can be granted transfer credits according to the general arrangements for recognition of prior learning of the University.

Such candidates should, along with their application form, submit the following documents:
- Official transcripts (grade reports) and syllabi (course descriptions) for all University coursework taken to date.

Transcripts are evaluated by an ad-hoc Transfer Committee consisting of the Program supervisor and two other academic staff members, in order to determine the number of credits to be transferred, in accordance with the MSc in Electrical engineering program curriculum requirements.
Transfer students, regardless of the number of credits transferred should complete at least two thirds (2/3) of the ECTS credits required by the program of study at Frederick University in order to be eligible for graduation. For a 1 ½ -year 90 ECTS program, a transfer student must complete a minimum of one (1) year full time study (60 ECTS) in the MSc in Electrical Engineering program in order to be eligible for graduation. Restrictions set by professional bodies such as the Cyprus Scientific and Technical Chamber (ΕΤΕΚ) are also taken into consideration.
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 90 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 postgraduate doctorate studies in disciplines related with the discipline of electrical engineering.
