Mode of Study Full Time or Part Time

The Automotive Engineering Program of Study provides the opportunity for students to gain a deep understanding in a particular automotive engineering discipline. The Program constitutes a balance between the academic and the practical directions. It prepares its graduates for direct employment as Automotive engineers and lays the foundation for graduate studies in the field of Automotive engineering.

The language of instruction is English.

1. Apply a variety of methods, including mathematical analysis, computational modelling, or practical experiments, to solve automotive engineering related problems.
2. Use appropriate methods to pursue research or other detailed investigation of technical issues related with the discipline of automotive engineering.
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 automotive 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 related to the field of automotive 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 will have both enhanced interdisciplinary skills in automotive engineering and business, and the teamwork skills necessary to guide product and process development in this fast-growing field. They fulfil the requirements for employment in private sectors such as service advisors, fleet control engineers, automotive insurance companies’ assessors and public departments such as the Road Transport Department. They can also be employed in the industry in areas related to automotive supplier companies.

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 Automotive/Mechanical engineering.
