The Electrical Engineering programme offered by University of Nicosia is intended to qualify students to begin a professional career in the field of Electrical Engineering as engineers or to pursue further advanced post-graduate studies at the level of Masters or Doctorate degrees.

About

The major engineering courses of the Electrical Engineering programme offered by University of Nicosia contain, apart from theory and fundamental principles, elements of analysis and design, as well as significant laboratory work.

Objectives:

The graduate of this programme should:

  • Have a fundamental understanding of a broad spectrum of topics in Electrical Engineering;
  • Have advanced knowledge and in-depth understanding of at least one of the specialization areas of Electrical Engineering;
  • Have a firm grasp of the basic knowledge of mathematics, physics, and possibly chemistry as a foundation for further post-graduate studies;
  • Be able to communicate technical ideas effectively through both oral presentations and written reports;
  • Have developed independent thinking and problem solving skills to tackle real-world Electrical Engineering problems;
  • Have extensive hands-on laboratory experience in designing hardware and software solutions to challenging real-world problems in Electrical Engineering;
  • Have acquired an interdisciplinary fundamental knowledge for a more fulfilling and rewarding career;
  • Have adequate software programming skills that are needed in the process of analysis and design of electrical engineering problem solutions;
  • Be a well-rounded individual that is knowledgeable of fields outside of science and engineering including business, and liberal arts;
  • Be well prepared for either an entry-level job in Electrical Engineering or further studies toward an advanced post-graduate Masters and/or Doctorate degree.

The programme is has both an academic and market orientation. Thus, it is targeting students who intend to pursue post-graduate studies, as well as those that will enter the job market after graduation.

Career Prospects:

On successful completion of the programme, graduates will be able to use the acquired technical knowledge and analytical skills to effectively tackle engineering problems and provide viable solutions. Recently, the EE programme degree has been acknowledged by the Scientific and Technical Chamber of Cyprus, thus allowing students to work in their field of studies in both the government and private sectors of the island. Potential employment opportunities include employment by:

  • Telecommunication companies to design and monitor large-scale telecommunication systems;
  • Electric companies in order to work in power generating plants, distribution networks, etc.;
  • Companies dealing with any kind of home and outdoors automation systems;
  • Software companies to design and develop algorithms that provide solutions to engineering type of application problems;
  • Companies specializing in industrial automation and control
Access to Further Studies:

Upon graduation, students may have direct access to further postgraduate 2nd and 3rd cycle studies as they are admitted to institutions in Cyprus, the EU and the USA/Canada

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    5.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

  • Minimum required score:

    513

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score:

    65

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

The general admission requirement for entry to an undergraduate programme of study is a High School Leaving Certificate or equivalent qualification. Some programmes may have additional requirements in which case they are specified separately under the relevant programme details.

Regular Academic Admission

Regular admission to academic programmes requires a High School Leaving Certificate or its equivalent with an average grade of ‘C’. ‘A’ levels are considered to be a form of equivalent qualification. (Depending on the nature of the ‘A’ levels obtained and the programme for which the student applies, credits within the programme may be awarded up to a maximum of 12 credits).

In addition to a strong academic record, we take into account the student’s extracurricular involvement, leadership skills, and other relevant background information.

English Language Proficiency

English is the language of instruction at the University of Nicosia. All students are required to take the English Placement Test (EPT) before registering for classes.
