Information about admission:

  • Candidates for a bachelor degree program should submit a school leaving certificate from a recognized six-form secondary school (high school) with an average grade of 75% (Greek Cypriot secondary schools) or a grade “C” or its equivalent (other secondary schools), or equivalent qualification. Candidates who submit a six-form secondary school leaving certificate but do not meet the above grade requirements may be admitted on a probationary status, if they show potential for educational advancement. The probationary status will be removed, subject to a satisfactory academic performance. Candidates admitted on probationary status may also be asked to enroll in foundation courses in order to improve their skills and/or to take reduced load.
  • A recent certificate of good conduct issued by the police of the candidate's country of origin or residence, if necessary translated in Greek or English. The good conduct certificate should be original and issued less than 6 months prior to the beginning of the semester for which the student is applying. The names and titles of the persons issuing and certifying the document should be clearly stated therein.


  • Personal interviews are not normally required as part of the admission process; however, Frederick University reserves the right to request an interview before making a final decision on accepting an applicant.

More information:

  • There may be an additional application fee by this University.

Learning Outcomes

  • Apply a variety of methods, including mathematical analysis, computational modelling, or practical experiments, to solve automotive engineering related problems.
  • Use appropriate methods to pursue research or other detailed investigation of technical issues related with the discipline of automotive engineering.
  • Design solutions to unfamiliar problems, possibly involving other disciplines and their creativity to develop new and original ideas and methods.
  • Design and conduct analytic, modelling and experimental investigations, to critically evaluate data and draw conclusions.
  • Apply their knowledge and understanding for developing practical skills for solving problems, conducting investigations, and designing engineering devices and processes.
  • Recognise the wider, non-technical implications of engineering practice, ethical, environmental, commercial and industrial.
  • Evaluate the capabilities and limitations of existing and emerging technologies in the field of automotive engineering.
  • Demonstrate the ability to integrate knowledge from different branches, and handle complexity, and to understand applicable techniques and methods, their limitations and the non-technical implications of engineering practice.
  • Apply new and emerging technologies related to the field of automotive engineering.
  • Use diverse methods, such as technical reports and technical presentations to communicate effectively with the engineering community and with society at large.
