About the Department

The aim of the program is to continue the education of ethical researchers and experts in their field who hold a global reputation in: environmental sciences and technologies, the identification and provision of solutions to regional and global environmental problems, the contribution to science, the understanding of global research projects, and who can put to use policies necessary for environmental protection and sustainability. In this program, PhD courses deals with sources of soil, water and air pollution, their effects on environment and existing treatment strategies. In addition, students are informed by the latest available technologies for identification of the pollutants in environmental matrices. Students are able to do their researches in environmental research laboratories and also, they can access to any scientific documents to investigate more about related projects across the world.

Education Opportunities

The Environmental Sciences PhD Program in Cyprus International University aims to train researchers to be able to work in the design, operation, and supervision of the systems that can ensure to recover degraded nature and prevent pollution. Throughout the course work and thesis practices students deal with main topics of water and waste water treatment plants, water networks, design of transmission lines, solid waste control, modeling and control of air pollution, environmental management and planning and noise pollution control. Students benefit from study the analysis laboratory, computer rooms and library to study theoretical and practical part of the course works and thesis. Researches in Environmental Sciences field have an important role in making the world a better place to live in and achieving the objectives of sustainable development.

Career Areas

Graduate students of Environmental Sciences PhD Program can find work in state or private institutions to undertake project design, implementation and environmental management. As a result of studying in the Department of Environmental Sciences, graduates start careers in the control of drinking water quality, sewage, the design and construction of storm water networks, as well as the selection, design, construction and operation of domestic and industrial wastewater treatment system, noise pollution control and air pollution and its control. Environmental Sciences is a multidisciplinary working field therefore; graduate students can work together with civil, mechanical, energy engineers as well as political scientists, lawyers and other social scientists in wide variety of projects.
