The Cyprus University of Technology aspires to develop itself into a modern, pioneering University able to offer education and high level research in leading branches of science and technology which have high impact on the economic, technical, and scientific sectors.

With its orientation towards applied research, the University aspires to establish for itself a role in support of the state and society in their efforts to confront problems, which cover all areas of science and technology. The programmes of the CUT to a large extent complement scientific areas, which are not currently covered at Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels by the University of Cyprus or any other institution of higher education in the country.

The Cyprus University of Technology was founded by law on December 2003 and welcomed its first students on September 2007.

The Cyprus University of Technology is based at the city of Limassol, where all six faculties are located.

Τhe Department of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Informatics (EECEI) combines the fields of Electrical Engineering, of Computer Engineering and of Computer Science under a unified multi-disciplinary department. The department offers two distinct program of studies (curricula), one for students who wish to study Electrical Engineering and one for those who wish to study Computer Engineering and Informatics is distinct. The program of Computer Engineering and Informatics combines engineering and computer science courses. There is however, a substantial overlap of mandatory and elective courses between the two programs. The department's faculty and research associates conduct world class Electrical Engineering and Computer Science research as evidenced by its prominent publication record and its ability to attract substantial external research funding.

The goals of EECEI’s programs of studies include the elevation of the technical capacity and professional development in Cyprus and across the globe. Taking into consideration the globalization of markets and Cyprus’ position as a member of the European Union, we realize the need to train our students at a level that renders them competitive and skillful.

Our programs aim at equipping our students with the abilities needed to face with confidence the challenges of the domestic and foreign professional sector or of post-graduate academic programs at home or abroad. Our graduates acquire the professional skills that a rapidly shifting technological environment demands, including complex reasoning, critical thinking, and problem solving. They are able to assume leading roles in the industry. In addition, our graduates are in position to succeed in the private industrial sector, in the government sector, as well as in the academic and research environment.

Our graduates obtain excellent communication skills, which enable them to effectively solve engineering problems both when working alone and in teams. Furthermore, our programs place great emphasis on instilling high moral and professional standards in their graduates.
