About the Program

The aim of Environmental Engineering Postgraduate Program is to graduate students with ability to find solutions to complex environmental problems. Environmental Engineering Postgraduate Program aims to bring the students up with knowledge and skills to apply the foundations of science to be able to improve the environmental conditions of the society for a health and high quality life. The students will be able to form databases on pollutants with an impact on the environment by conducting laboratory and field studies. Moreover, they can work on understanding, making and improving the environmental laws and regulations as well as determining standards for public and private industrial sectors. It is expected that the graduates from these programs can evaluate the environmental issues with an economical, legal, and social and sustainability perspectives, and possess the knowledge to design and apply projects to solve environmental problems.

Education Opportunities

The Department of Environmental Engineering at Cyprus International University aims to train students to be able to work in the design, operation, supervision and construction of engineering structures and systems that can ensure the recover degraded nature and prevent pollution. Throughout the four-year course students undertake courses and projects in the main topics of water and waste water treatment plants, water networks, design of transmission lines, solid waste control, modelling and control of air pollution, environmental management and planning and noise pollution control. Students study theory, practical lessons and graduation projects in the analysis laboratory, computer rooms and library. Environmental engineers have an important role in making the world a better place to live in and achieving the objectives of sustainable development. Students receive an education in line with these goals, understanding the importance of their profession.

Career Areas

The students graduated from Environmental Engineering Postgraduate Program, can continue their career both in academic and industrial fields. Research centers, universities, public and private laboratories, consultancy and design companies, public and private statistical departments, ministries, environmental impacts assessment units, municipalities and non-governmental organizations are among the institutions where the students can work after their graduation. In such institutions, graduates can use their critical analytical thinking skills to determine and analyze environmental problems, find effective solutions to such problems while investigating the applicability and efficiency of the proposed solutions. Especially, the PhD graduates will be able to work in prestigious universities as lecturers and researchers and contribute to the scientific world with their quality research studies.
