About Us

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) of the University of Cyprus (UCY) offers graduate degree programs in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Construction and Transport Infrastructure Management (CTIM), at both the Master's (M.Eng., M.Sc.) and doctoral (Ph.D.) levels.

The CTIM graduate program covers the most current theories and practices needed by the construction & transport engineering and management professional. It is taught by faculty and industry professionals who hold particular prominence in their respective fields, and is complemented by knowledge infusions from visiting scholars. CTIM programs utilize case-based learning and are ideal for engineers, construction and transportation professionals.

Further to the postgraduate academic programs, the CTIM group is actively involved in theoretical and applied research pertaining to construction and transportation engineering and management. Said research work is performed at CTIM's two operated laboratories, the EUPALINOS - Construction Engineering and Water Distribution Networks Management Laboratory and the Laboratory for Transportation Engineering (LTE), directed by Dr. Symeon Christodoulou and Dr. Loukas Dimitriou, respectively.

CTIM Directors

The University of Cyprus's CTIM group is co-managed by Dr. Symeon Christodoulou and Dr. Loukas Dimitriou, proud owners of the "EUPALINOS - Construction Engineering & Water Distribution Networks Management Laboratory" and of the "Laboratory for Transportation Engineering (LTE)". Dr. Symeon Christodoulou, Head of the construction management group, and Dr. Loukas Dimitriou, Head of the transportation engineering group, are prominent researchers and academics in their respective fields, recipients of several academic and research awards, national representatives to international committees, authors of numerous publications and reviewers for over 50 scientific journals and technical conference committees.

    Head of Construction Management Division

    When asked about us, we just state the obvious:
    We are simply a bunch of research enthusiasts who view research as a way of living and not as just merely a routine in life. With multidisciplinary research teams of graduate students and research associates, we are in a constant quest for scientific or applied funded research projects and, most importantly, for the joy in advancing the state of knowledge in our field.

    Not only is the road to success always under construction, but it is also full of potholes and surrounded by tempting parking places. The O-D problem is only the start of the journey.

LTE hosts the 2015 "MULTITUDE Summer School"

CTIM 10.06.2015 Transport

CTIMS's Laboratory of Transportation Engineering hosts the 2015 MULTITUDE Summer School (4th in the MULTITUDE series) on advanced traffic simulation. This intensive three-day school provides attendants with training on advanced traffic simulation methods and models, their systematic calibration and validation, the reliability of predictions made by traffic simulation models, and tools and frameworks for the management of uncertainty. Several case studies will be presented and a team-based, hands-on, practicum will guide attendants through the application of the whole process of uncertainty management in traffic simulation. The school is targeted at graduate and PhD students, engineers, researchers, consultants and government employees who wish to improve their understanding and skills in the application of traffic simulation to real world scenarios.

Core Research Areas

For Us, Research Is A Way of Life, And Academic Success Is The Result Of Not Only Ingenious Ideas But Also Of Preparation, Hard Work And Perseverance.

by Dr. Symeon Christodoulou

Our research focuses on issues of national and international interest, of either applied or scientific nature, all intertwined in a self-feeding research and academic loop. National research agendas are linked to related international efforts, international knowledge is transfused into national research, scientific research is put to practice, and all earned knowledge is then transformed into instructional material. Within the general area of construction and transport infrastructure management, emphasis is given by the CTIM group on the following thematic areas: Building information models (BIM), risk management, resource-constrained scheduling, information technology, lifeline networks, transport systems design and operations, intelligent transport systems (ITS), traffic modelling, travel behaviour and road safety, roadway anomaly detection and classification, pavement management systems.

Construction Engineering & Management

Traditional and IT-based construction engineering and management, with emphasis on: project scheduling and cost controls, RCSP, operations analysis, risk management, decision support systems and artificial intelligence, competitive bidding and qualifications-based selection.

CTIM Academic Programs & Courses

CTIM programs teach professionals the broad array of technical and non-technical activities associated with construction and transport infrastructure management, and consist of courses from the following four categories: (A) core courses; (B) technical electives; (C) CEE-offered courses; (D) UCY-offered courses. Students are required to take a specified number of courses from each category, as summarized in Tables above and described in detail in the course syllabi listed below. The list of CTIM courses is subject to change based on UCY's latest CEE prostgraduate program of studies (last update: Sep. 2015), which supercedes any information posted on this website.

Please note that,
(1) you may filter the CTIM courses by course category type and course content, and
(2) some of the course descriptions/links are not currently available online but they will be hosted on the CTIM website soon.
