Welcome to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) of European University Cyprus. As chair of the department, I would like to share with you some highlights of our department – our world class faculty and research centers, cutting edge learning in our degree programs, alumni success stories, and great job opportunities.
The Department was created in the 1980's (under Cyprus College) to address the needs of the emerging (then) information technology. In the last 30 years the rapid growth of information and communication technologies (ICT) has seen the Department closely follow this evolution and be an active contributor to the academic needs both nationally and internationally.
CSE faculty perform research in a wide range of areas, from Networks and Cognitive Radio, to Video Games and Decision Support Systems. We are honored to have faculty that serve on national and international committees of research programs, and who have received numerous national and international awards. In fact, we are home to Prof. Andreas Efstathiou, the 2013 Scientist of the Year award recipient. At the department we operate several research laboratories, such as the Information and Communications Technologies – Enhanced Education laboratory, the Center for Game Studies, the Decision Support & Systems Optimization laboratory, and others. There, our faculty performs research in areas as diverse as serious games for health, using new technologies in the classroom, and the support of decision makers in industrial settings.
The department is also committed to providing world-class education in both its undergraduate and graduate degree offerings. We currently offer undergraduate (Bachelor of Science) degrees in Computer Science and Computer Engineering in English; Mathematics in Greek. We also offer a graduate (Master of Science) degree in Information Systems in English. All of our programs closely follow the guidelines set by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and by the International Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) association. The Computer Science and Computer Engineering degrees are recognized by the Cyprus Scientific and Technical Chamber (ETEK) a statutory technical advising body for the state and a point of professional reference for all engineers in Cyprus. Also, our Industry Advisory Board guides us towards better integration of our degrees with the local software and hardware industry.
Our department possesses a reputation for excellence in education and in producing graduates of the highest quality. Our graduates are equipped with strong foundations for either integration to the industry or continuing onto further education and/or research. Our alumni have moved on to found their own successful businesses, entered universities abroad (in the UK and the US in particular) to receive graduate degrees, or have found employment in large companies in Cyprus and abroad.
We continuously work towards enhancing our educational and research activities towards reaching our goal to become a constant point of reference for high academic achievement in Cyprus and the Mediterranean region.
