  • TempoRefuge is an initiative undertaken by the School of Engineering and seeks to develop a prototype of a temporary housing unit that can cater to the needs of displaced persons or refugees.
    This initiative includes a student competition for housing unit ideas, followed by the finalization of the design of the "winning" idea, and culminating in the actual construction of a prototype housing unit.
  • UGreenS aims at introducing the practical know-how for the implementation of two new technologies, Green Roofs and Living Walls, both of which fall under the umbrella of Urban Greening, to Cyprus. Urban Greening is a concept that is essential in the context of Sustainable Construction and Development. The specialized knowledge for the implementation of the aforementioned technologies is, currently, quite limited, especially in Mediterranean countries, and almost non-existent in Cyprus. Therefore, through this project, we seek to import specialized knowledge from prestigious academic institutions in Spain, Greece, and Malta, the latter pertaining to specific elements that would add to the sustainability of the whole endeavor.
  • Sustainable Construction; Principles, Tools and Methods (SUSCON-IP) is an Erasmus Intensive Program, funded through EU's Lifelong Learning Program. It is Organized by the Department of Civil Engineering of Frederick University, and it will be held during Summer 2011, in Protaras, Cyprus. A total of 28 students and 15 professors, from six different Mediterranean (EU) countries are participating in this Program.
