President of the University Council, ms Natassa Frederickou, explains: "According to studies, stereotypes are social norms are the main reason why girls hesitate to study Engineering and Technology, even if they excel in related subjects. Our aim is to eliminate prejudices and stereotypes and encourage more girls to choose studies and careers in these fields."

"We invest in the talent of girls and women, in their ingenuity and creativity. We are sure that they have a key role to play in finding solutions that will improve our lives. Through this campaign, we encourage them to share their own perspective and develop new ideas for a better world for us all" notes the University's Rector, Professor George Demosthenous.
