The BSc in Computer Engineering of EUC is recognized by the Cyprus Scientific and Technical Chamber (ETEK), which is often a requirement for employment by a number of organizations in Cyprus including CYTA and EAC. In addition, the degree is recognized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM).
The Department has created the IEEE Student Club and the membership fee is covered by the University. IEEE is the world's largest technical professional body for electrical engineers and computer engineers. As an IEEE member, students can participate in a range of activities, such as excursions, conferences and seminars. This involvement enriches students' experiences and prepares them for a career in computer engineering.
The Robotics Club of the Department gives the opportunity to the students to participate in various activities such as demonstrations, trainings and competitions (e.g., World Robotics Olympiad). The Club won the Cyprus Robotics World Olympiad in 2015 and 2016, as well as the European Youth Award 2017 in Brussels.
CYBER.EUC Cybersecurity Center
The Department hosts the CYBER.EUC Cybersecurity Center. The mission of CYBER.EUC is to promote the scientific perspective of cybersecurity and to enhance the practical and strategic capacity of its partners and customers in cyberspace. This will allow organizations to thrive in a rapidly changing digital world, creating new challenges and opportunities in cyberspace. CYBER.EUC's vision is to become a world-class reference center for cybersecurity science and the promote the necessary digital transformation with an emphasis on local and regional needs. This center will create new opportunities for students to improve their knowledge of cybersecurity through various activities. It is noted that currently, there are 3.5 million unfilled jobs in cyberspace worldwide (2021).
Industrial internships are offered for additional expertise in the field. Students are thus equipped with the capabilities of starting their own companies and becoming young entrepreneurs.
Learning Through Robotics
Our program offers its students the ability to learn the foundations of programming by using a hands-on approach through educational robotics. This innovative approach of teaching and introducing students to computer programming has been adopted by leading universities and is offered only by our degree in Cyprus.
Students gain experience in hardware design and development with dedicated engineering courses leading to them undertaking their own senior project the capstone of their studies.
Embedded Labs and hands-on experience
The program places special emphasis on the notion of embedded labs, the idea that labs are embedded in classroom and take place alongside with theory. A lot of our computer engineering courses have adopted this methodology of teaching. It thus allows students to gain practical experience in the field.
