Qualification Awarded BSc in Computer Engineering
Level Of Qualification Bachelor (1st Cycle Degree)
Offered by Department of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Informatics
Mode of Study Full Time or Part Time
The Program focuses on computer systems with integrated understanding of computer hardware and software. It aims to develop graduates who exhibit in-depth knowledge and possess advanced skills in the core domains of the discipline of computer engineering. The Program constitutes a balance between theory and practice and prepares its graduates for direct employment and a successful career. Furthermore, the Program lays the foundation for graduate studies.

The language of instruction is English.

1. Retrieve, analyze and evaluate information from different sources, including information retrieval through databases and on-line computer searches.
2. Demonstrate competency in oral, written and graphical communication skills, as well as in the use of relevant computing technologies and tools.
3. Demonstrate the ability to work with others in order to carry out a team task.
4. Use facts and data and apply appropriate mathematical, science and engineering methods to solve problems, analyze issues or make decisions within the context of the computer engineering discipline.
5. Use state-of-the-art software and hardware tools, as well as laboratory equipment to design, test and evaluate digital systems.
6. Design, program, develop and evaluate computing systems as well as smart systems based on microprocessors, microcontrollers and embedded systems to meet defined and specified requirements.
7. Design, implement and maintain reliable and secure computer networks to satisfy the needs of an organization.
8. Use analytical methods and modelling techniques to evaluate computing systems and components in terms of general quality attributes and possible trade-offs presented within the given problem.
9. Evaluate the capabilities and limitations of existing and emerging technologies in the field of information and communication technologies.
10. Demonstrate awareness on the forefront of knowledge in the field of computer engineering and on the emerging information and communication technologies.

The graduates of the Program have the knowledge and skills required for the design, implementation, and administration of computing systems. They fulfil the requirements for employment in the public or private sectors as information and communication technologies (ICT) engineers, hardware support engineers, network designers/administrators. They can also be employed in the industry in areas related to automation systems.
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
Candidates can be admitted to the Program only if they satisfy the general admission requirements of the University.

For the Computer Engineering BSc program, all candidates must take a placement test in Mathematics and English, prior to their enrolment in the Program. Candidates who fail the placement test must enroll under a probation status and are required to register to relevant foundation courses. Student workload for these foundation courses is accounted in the total student workload, which is limited to the maximum of 30 ETCS per semester.

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.
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 computer engineering.
