The Mission of the Department is to provide learning opportunities at all cycles of education through high quality teaching and innovative research in the areas of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Computer Science.
The Department promotes the active participation of its faculty members and students in basic and applied research, funded by national and international organisations and the development of partnerships with the industry, the global academic community and the society.
The vision of the Department is to be recognised locally and internationally for the academic excellence of the educational programs offered and the pioneering research and innovation activities performed. The Department aims to contribute to an array of important open problems that define the society of tomorrow, including quality of life, health, environment, and energy.
The Department’s Strategic Plan is based on the objectives of the University’s Strategic Plan aims in the fulfilment of the mission of the Department and the mission of the University as a whole. The development of the Departments’ Strategic Plans considered the current developments in the disciplines related to the programs of study of the Department, national and regional factors that affect the Department, as well as information and feedback obtained from the academic staff, the students, the graduates, the employers and other stakeholders. The developed Strategic Plan is a six-year plan that includes a SWOT analysis, short term and long term strategic goals and action plans, as well as a monitoring framework.
The main goals of the Strategic Plan of the Department are directly aligned with the University's priorities of excellence in the following five pillars: (A) Education, (B) Research, (C) Infrastructure, (D) Promotion and International orientation and (E) Society Contribution
The Strategic Plan of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Informatics (DECEI) is implemented via the short-, the medium- and the long-term Strategic Goals defined for a period of 5 years, towards the achievement of the mission and the vision of the Department. These goals are broken down into specific pillars arising from the mission of the Department, as follows:
Pillar A – Education
Offer high quality teaching aiming academic excellence by reviewing and enriching when necessary the programmes of study offered on a bi-annual basis according to the most recent technological advancements. Encourage the engagement of students in research and innovation activities at all the levels of Education.
Develop a positive educational environment for students by including students’ representatives in all decision making bodies of the Department and increasing academic student support. Promote and support student mobility and industrial placements and create a multinational environment that would assist international students to be integrated.
Pillar B – Research
Promote Research and Innovation activities in alignment with the University’s and the Department’s Research and Innovation policy. Strengthen and expand the existing research groups and centres and encourage the development of new research units and the recruitment of PhD students and new researchers.
Pillar C – Infrastructure
Ensure that Laboratory infrastructure is enhancing and supporting the Programmes offered, aiming to be the stronghold of the Department.
Pillar D – Promotion and International Orientation
Promote the Programmes offered by the Department through promotional material, website posts, social media and Promotional events, to attract home and international students. Develop joint-masters, joint-PhD programmes/ supervisions in common research areas with partner Institutions from ongoing or completed research or mobility projects
Pillar E – Society Contribution
Organise events open to the public, and focus on research activities that would meet society needs. Establish strategic partnerships with companies, social organisations, for mutual promotion of activities. Develop programmes for Adult Education and Life-Long Learning, in the form of cross-disciplinary courses for candidates from diverse backgrounds.
