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.

Key Learning Outcomes

  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.

Occupational Profiles of the Graduates

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).
