 Description of the PhD program in MME

The Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering offers a high-quality graduate program both at the Master and PhD level. Similar to the Master program the PhD program emphasizes fundamental principles that prepare students for leadership roles in a challenging and rapidly changing technological world. Research and innovation are encouraged in an environment that fosters cooperation among faculty, students, industry, and research organizations. The faculty in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering is composed of experienced and distinguished academicians with expertise in a wide range of research fields pertinent to Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. Doctoral students have the opportunity to participate in research projects funded by the European Union, the Cypriot government and industrial partners. They also have the opportunity to obtain teaching experience working as teaching assistants for undergraduate courses. Full and part time, 3-year fellowships are provided by the University every year to the best new comer graduate students. 

The three general research areas in the Department are:

The duration of the program is 4 to 5 years and involves courses (72 ECTS, 9 courses) and research (168 ECTS) work. The students are specialized in one of the research areas of the Department with the aim to create proper conditions for a successful professional career in the public or private sector, in industry or in research organizations. 

The suggested program of study is summarized in the Table
