Requirements for Admission

Admission to the program requires holding a bachelor’s degree in some Engineering or Science discipline. The degree must have been judged as equivalent to a University degree by the Cyprus Council for Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications.

Applicants who do not hold their first degree at the time of application but will hold such a degree before the commencement of the graduate program, are also eligible to apply but must submit a letter from their University’s Registrar verifying that they are indeed eligible to graduate. The decision on their admission does not become official until the degree has been successfully produced.

Pre-requisite courses may apply to some of the MSc courses, which can be undertaken from the BSc-level programs of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or other departments at UCY. On admission, the necessary pre-requisite courses per student will be determined.
