Civil Engineering is the study, application, and practice of using science and engineering technologies to deal with the design, planning, construction, and maintenance of sustainable infrastructures. The Civil engineering field started its work in 2017 as one of the primary fields in the Faculty of Engineering at Final International University. With up to date facilities and laboratories this faculty will equip the students with practical knowledge of civil engineering.
Our Civil Engineering program has always attracted the most talented and intelligent young people, and today most of its graduates, work in the country with full efficiency and play a significant role in the development of Cyprus.

Program Aims and Outcomes
The Faculty of Civil Engineering has always strived to best meet the bulk of the country's need for civil engineers. Program of Civil Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering, at the undergraduate level, is a four years course program. After going through the fundamental engineering courses in the first year, the students will study the specific civil engineering courses from the second year and by end of the third year, they would be qualified to attend the summer training course to experience the fieldwork. Our program has one major in civil engineering to train qualified engineers who have sufficient expertise and skills in all civil engineering activities, including execution, design, consulting, and management. The Faculty of Engineering designed the Civil Engineering program to train qualified graduates who could attain:
Become competent and engaged engineering professionals, applying their technical and managerial skills in the planning, design, construction, operation, or maintenance of the built environment and global infrastructure, and utilizing their skills to analyze and design systems, specify project methods and materials, perform cost estimates and analyses, and manage technical activities in support of civil engineering projects.
Initiated an active program of life-long learning, including studies leading to professional licensure or an advanced degree in engineering, that provides for the continued development of their technical abilities and management skills, and attainment of professional expertise.
Developed their communication skills in oral, written, visual, and graphic modes when working as team members or leaders, so they can actively participate in their communities and their profession.
Established an understanding of professionalism, ethics, quality performance, public policy, safety, and sustainability that allows them to be professional leaders and contributors to society when solving engineering problems and producing civil engineering solutions.
The program consists of a total of 151 credits including 134 hours of theory and 42 hours of application and laboratory. Students must have successfully completed 151 credit courses to be able to graduate. 151 Credits = 240 ECTS
Studying civil engineering provides our students with a range of technical skills valued by employers in various sectors, including engineering, construction, and property development. With a solid grasp of science, mathematics, and technology, the students will learn to design, create, and build structures efficiently, making the best use of available resources and techniques.
Our graduates as a qualified civil engineer can find work in a range of sectors, particularly in the construction sector, on buildings and large structures of all kinds, transportation and communications infrastructures.
There are also opportunities to work in-house for a variety of national and multinational organizations, particularly within the public sector. Local authorities, government departments, and environmental organizations.
