Computer Systems and Networks

Computer Systems and Networks

The direction Computer Systems and Networks aims to present the basic principles and recent developments in the organization and programming of computer systems and networks. Through both course work and laboratories, students are given the opportunity to cover topics related to this specialisation, with emphasis on parallel and embedded systems as well as high-performance networks.

The direction of Computer Systems and Networks is traditionally one of the most attractive directions of study due to the need for substantial knowledge of the organization and operation of a system or network for its efficient usage. Nowadays, this need has become even more urgent with the growing diffusion of computer systems and networks in every aspect of everyday life in the modern information society and communication. Specialization on systems and networks provide graduates a wide range of choices for academic, research and professional careers.

Almost all courses offered by the Department in the first four semesters are compulsory and common to all students. Students are asked to choose a direction at the beginning of the fourth semester of their studies. In the fifth and sixth semesters, students are required to take the compulsory courses of their chosen direction, as well as elective courses from other departments. The last two semesters include restricted elective courses within the direction and elective courses; also, each student must undertake an individual diploma project, called undergraduate thesis project, under the supervision of a member of the Department’s academic staff. The topic of the undergraduate thesis project must relate to the student’s chosen direction of study.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus. The Department has experienced significant growth over the last few years, and is now home to 22 faculty, with strong groups in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, data management, graphics and virtual reality, internet computing, software engineering and theoretical computer science. The Department offers a Bachelor degree in Computer Science with 7 different specializations as well as six Master degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science.

The Department has a strong research infrastructure comprising high-performance clusters and storage area networks, cloud computing facilities, smart-phones and sensing devices and virtual reality equipment. Since 2005, our Department has been involved in more than 150 research projects funded from both the European Union and the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation with total funding of over 18 million euros.
