Career Prospects: Building construction and land development is one of the major sectors of the Cypriot economy. Despite the current financial crisis, there is still a great deal of construction going on including building constructions, road constructions, and land development. A great emphasis is also focused on green development and the design of environment friendly, sustainable, and ecological buildings. Processing and management of solid wastes and wastewater treatment constitute additional areas of employment for our graduates. Specifically, a graduate with a BSc degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering may be employed in the following fields: Building constructions Road & highway constructions Construction of dams and bridges Underground construction (e.g. subway, tunnels) Restoration of old and traditional buildings Construction of ports and coastal protection structures Platform design and construction Research and development Education including teaching and research Recycling and waste management Processing of hazardous material Access to Further Studies: After completion of the BSc program in Civil & Environmental Engineering, students may opt to broaden and deepen their academic qualifications and skills by pursuing post-graduate (Master and PhD) studies in the same or related field in Cyprus or overseas. Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this program the graduates are expected to: 1. Have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the processes and technologies involved in the field of civil and environmental engineering; 2. Use mathematics, basic science, and engineering techniques to analyze and solve problems related to civil and environmental engineering; 3. Use engineering knowledge and tools to design a structure, a device, or process that meets specific needs within constraints of social, economic, environmental, ethical, sustainability, and safety origin; 4.
