The University of Cyprus was officially founded in 1989 and started operating in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, in 1992.

These great distinctions are the result of our dedication to excellence and continuous development. The University of Cyprus managed to stand out and receive awards for the new paths it has opened up in particularly demanding and dynamic contexts of research. 

To this end, the University constantly develops its programs of study and recruits high-caliber staff who will contribute significantly to the design of new curricula, both at undergraduate and graduate level. One of the strategic aims of the University of Cyprus is the further promotion and development of research, in which new staff are expected to play an essential role.

It provides high-quality programs both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Through this short but creative course of development, the Department has gained international recognition and is today amongst the 201-300 best Electrical and Electronic Engineering Departments (2019 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU)) in the world. The Department is expected to move to its new facilities within the new School of Engineering building by the end of 2021; these facilities will include teaching and research laboratories as well as teaching facilities of the highest caliber.
