Established in 2004, Cyprus University of Technology was created to fulfill a unique role for undergraduate and post-graduate students in the region. It was designed to offer degrees not available from the University of Cyprus or other higher education institutions, in the fields of engineering and technology, communication and media studies, geotechnical sciences, and many more.
Based in Limassol, the second largest city in Cyprus, the university consists of six faculties and a Language Center. It has no central campus but extends across 45 buildings throughout the city center. Technology plays a key role in bringing these disparate sites together.
This decentralized approach makes it challenging for the university's small IT team to connect and manage technology at multiple sites. When its technology was nearing end of life, the university turned to Logicom Solutions and its partner Cisco to help it plan and deploy the technology it needed to give students, faculty, and staff secure access to the services they need.
