Research and innovation are ensured in an environment that fosters cooperation among faculty, students, industry and research organisations. The faculty
in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering comprises experienced academics, who are leaders in their fields of expertise.

Applications are submitted to the Department and are considered for evaluation by the Postgraduate Studies Committee which makes suggestions to the Departmental Board for final approval. Upon acceptance to the programme, studentsmust choose one of the faculty members as their supervisor, whom they should consult on academic and research issues.

Duration: The minimum period of study for full-time students is three (3) academic semesters and the maximum period of study is eight (8) academic semesters.

The postgraduate programmes of each department are supervised by a three-member Postgraduate Programmes Committee, chaired by a Postgraduate Programmes Coordinator.The Coordinator may be the chairperson of the department or a member of the academic staff appointed by the chairperson. The other members of the committee are appointed by the Departmental Board. The Committee is appointed for a two-year term.

The programmes of study of the University of Cyprus are based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). An ECTS normally corresponds to a 25-30 hours workload per semester. Full-time status requires a courseload of 21 ECTS per semester. Students carrying fewer ECTS are considered part-time.

To be awarded the M.Sc. degree, students must complete at least 90 ECTS of graduate-level coursework, distributed as follows:

* At least 56 ECTS of graduate-level courses.
* 4 ECTS of graduate-level seminars.
* At least 30 ECTS of an original research study, documented by an M.Sc. thesis.

The following rules apply:

* At most 16 ECTS, out of the 56 ECTS for courses, can come from directed study courses such as ECE 711-712.
* Students may enroll in graduate courses offered by another department from the University of Cyprus or any other accredited university. Units outside the Department are approved by the Graduate Studies Committee, and are not to exceed 18 ECTS, unless approved by the Department Board.
* For students who completed graduate level courses as a part of
other graduate programmes, at most 18 ECTS from these courses can count towards the 56 ECTS for graduate coursework, after approval by the Department Board.
* To satisfy the 4 ECTS requirement for seminars, each student must attend at least 25 departmental graduate seminar presentations during their time registered in the ECE graduate programme. The graduate seminar coordinator is responsible for assigning the final grade.

The criteria for assessment of postgraduate candidates are the following: * Applicants must have a university degree, awarded by an accredited institution in the country where it operates, or a degree evaluated as equivalent to a university degree by the Cyprus Council for the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications (KYSATS). Individuals who will be awarded a University degree or Graduation certificate fulfilling the criteria of the application requirements by the end of the week that precedes the registration week will also be eligible to submit an application form. * Academic background in the appropriate discipline and grades in other related degrees. Students admitted into the M.Sc. programme of Computer Engineering without an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering must possess fundamental knowledge of basic concepts in the following areas: Computer Architecture and Organisation, Operating Systems, and Algorithms. The student´s academic advisor will determine if, and what, additional coursework is required. This may require a maximum of 4 additional courses from the above areas (possibly from the corresponding undergraduate programme of the Department). * Letters of recommendation. * Personal interview at the discretion of each department. * Written examination at the discretion of each department.
