Department of Environmental Science and Technology

Both the environment and chemical science/technology have attracted attention in recent years as themes addressing major needs of the industry and the society as a whole. The Department of Environmental Science and Technology offers two undergraduate programs: (a) In Environmental Science and Technology (suspended for new students since September 2016), and (b) in Chemical Engineering (since September 2017).

The goal of the undergraduate programme in Environmental Science and Technology is to educate students in a combination of life and environmental sciences and technology to meet the worldwide needs in this area. The main feature of the program, which is unique in Cyprus, is its educational structure in which the Department's faculty work together to teach a variety of topics in the field of Environmental Science and Technology.

After complementing lectures with practical education, students are assigned to laboratories in diverse fields during their senior year while undertaking research for their degree.

The programme of Chemical Engineering offers a solid background in engineering that allows students to elaborate on numerous general and specific fields of the Engineering sector, such as Fluid Engineering, Mass and Energy Transport, Biotechnology, Petrochemical Technology, and Materials Science and Technology. In addition, traditional sciences such as chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics become the basis of numerous applications within the field of Chemical Engineering. Chemical Engineers are well equipped to address significant modern technological and societal challenges, such as the sustainable use of energy resources, environmental pollution and remediation, the greenhouse effect as well as other problems related with the pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology and the health sector in general.
