About the Cyprus University of Technology
The Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) was established in 2004 as a public university located on the coastal city of Limassol. Its first students were admitted in 2007 while successfully offering, since then, all 3 levels of degrees i.e. BSc, MSc, PhD. In its relatively short history the CUT earned international recognition as a top-ranked university in Cyprus and Greece, and has consistently ranked as one of the top 60 Young Universities and as one of the leading 301-350 universities in the world by Times Higher Education World University Rankings (THE) in recent years.
The CUT is committed to research excellence and is internationally distinguished as a regional leader, with over 250 successful sponsored research project funding in excess of 44 million Euros. Through the close collaborations and partnerships, the University with the industry, new research ideas and opportunities of growth are encouraged. A strong indicator of this successful collaboration is the >80% successful placement rate of graduates employed in their respective fields of studies in a period of less than a year after their graduation.
Approximately 3,000 students are currently enrolled in undergraduate and postgraduate studies in the 6 Faculties, 1 Language Center and 13 Departments of the University.
In service of society
The University’s social contribution is one of its most strongly-held values which shapes its identity, strategy and daily operations. The adoption of this value has two complementary and mutually-reinforcing objectives. The CUT aims to educate and develop responsible, scientifically-competent researchers, professionals and citizens who will act and lead, guided by the principles of sustainability and social responsibility. Simultaneously, the University aims to operate as a research and educational institution that provides value added to the economy, the environment and of the society in general. As such, the University integrates Sustainability in its 5 pillars (i.e. Teaching, Research, Operations, Culture and Outreach to the Society) and has adopted the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while targeting to prepare the leaders of the future generations who will achieve a better future for all people.
