Energy, Environment & Atmospheric Sciences

The full name of the final degree is Doctor of Philosophy in Energy, Environment and Atmospheric Sciences . The goal of the program is to promote excellence and educate students in energy environmental and atmospheric sciences, sectors that are all of high priority for Cyprus and internationally. The challenging curricula will include two mandatory courses aiming to establish a common basis among students from different disciplines, one (from a pool or three) mandatory track courses depending on the sector (energy, environment, or atmosphere) selected by each student, as well as a number of electives that provide insight into a variety of more specialized and important topics.

The Cyprus Institute uses the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Each course is worth 10 ECTS-credits. To satisfy the requirements of the PhD program, a student requires a total of 180 ECTS-credits, of which 50 ECTS-credits are from courses. The program will provide the necessary educational setting where excellence in education and research are fostered through interdisciplinary collaboration on regional problems of global significance.


* All the above courses are complemented by relevant lectures, seminars and workshops organised and offered by the EEWRC.
