Welcome Message by the Dean

Dear friends,

The School of Engineering at Frederick University was established in 2007, while capitalizing on a long tradition in engineering education that started with Frederick Institute of Technology, thus making us the oldest academic family that offers engineering education in Cyprus.  We also remain the largest School of Engineering in Cyprus; currently offering more than 25 Programs of Study, which are organized across four academic Departments; 1) Architecture, 2) Civil Engineering, 3) Electrical and Computer Engineering and Informatics, and 4) Mechanical Engineering.

We have been successfully educating a diverse group of students through a blend of modern, rigorous and simultaneously pragmatic programs of study.  Our graduates have enjoyed very high employability, and have been very successful in their professional endeavors, many of whom hold high-profile positions in the industry, the public sector, and in academia, worldwide.

We have created an atmosphere that facilitates the educational success of students in an environment that values the individual, diversity and community.  Our undergraduate programs integrate technical knowledge with awareness, communication skills and team building.  We have established graduate programs that achieve interdisciplinary engineering research and innovative problem solving.  We have achieved significant academic partnerships with universities, the industry and the public sector, nationally, regionally, and internationally.

Our faculty members are highly accomplished educators and scholars, who have been most successful in initiating internationally recognized research programs and producing significant scientific output, all while involving our students in these efforts.  This involvement, alongside our direct collaboration with industrial partners, further expand the educational experiences of our students, while equipping them with strong analytical capabilities, technological edge, and the skills for innovation and leadership.

Our state-of-the-art facilities are found in both our Nicosia and Limassol campuses, and they include teaching and research space that is home to over 20 research –groups and teaching laboratories.  If you have never been to Frederick University, please do visit us for a tour of our facilities or to participate in one of the many activities that will allow you to better explore our exciting programs.

At the School of Engineering of Frederick University we strive to serve society by graduating capable, broadly educated engineers, by conducting high quality research, by developing state-of-the-art solutions to real-life engineering problems, and by disseminating and preserving technical knowledge.

Whether you are looking to join an engineering program of study, already started your studies towards one of our degrees, or you are already part of our community, I hope that you seize every opportunity to expand your knowledge and improve yourselves to the fullest, by embarking on your own Journey to your Success!
