The Computer Engineering program provides students with the software, hardware and electronics engineering skills required to design, deliver and maintain efficient and effective computing systems. The program develops practical skills through extensive project work, covering computing, electronics, and embedded systems, as well as a firm foundation in the principles and theory of Computer Engineering.


Telecommunications have been one of the fastest growing sectors across the world, both in terms of technology and market usage. To start with, in Europe we have seen during the last 20 years a tremendous uprising in the usage of wireless-phone technology. Furthermore, the US, has experienced an explosive expansion of Wi-Fi systems that have conquered the wireless data market due to the high laptop computer and smart phone usage. Cyprus has also been part of this fast growing sector with a constant growing demand in areas such as Satellite Communications, Marine Communications, Search and Rescue Communications, intra- and inter-system communications, remote sensing etc. The Concentration in Telecommunications aims to prepare students for a career as practicing engineers in the area of Telecommunications.

Data and Computer Networking

Data and Computer Networking is one of the fastest growing sectors across the world, both in terms of technology and market usage. The advent of the Internet and Internetworking during the past 25 years has brought a tremendous uprising in the usage of data and computer networking. Data and Computer Networking is vital of any modern-day organization and is still evolving bringing the smartphone and ubiquitous computing revolution. The Concentration in Data and Computer Networking will equip the students with basic and advanced skills in the area of wired and wireless communications for a successful career in the sector.
