BSc Marine Electro-technology

The Bachelor of Science (BSc) Marine Electro-technology program


The Bachelor of Science (BSc) Marine Electro-technology program at Intercollege Larnaca and in collaboration with the Cyprus Maritime Academy of the University of Nicosia, aims in educating individuals into becoming Electro-Technical Officers (ETO) on commercial ships, based on the standards of the STCW International Convention (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers).


Upon completion of 4 years study, which include 1 year of training onboard a ship, the graduates will obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Marine Electro-technology by Intercollege Larnaca and also the STCW Certificate of Competency for Electro-technical Officer at an operational level by the University of Nicosia.

The Bachelor of Science will offer students the necessary academic, managerial and scientific knowledge of the field, whereas the Certificate of Competency will give them the opportunity to work on-board a ship. Most modern ships are controlled and/or monitored by electronic systems, automations and computers. Therefore, experienced and highly skilled technicians are needed for the operation and proper maintenance of such ships.

The ETO is responsible for the maintenance and repair of all electrical and electronic equipment, installations and machinery of a ship. This also includes radio-communications and electronic navigation aids. ETOs are very important to the marine industry and their position on-board the ship is of paramount significance.

  4. Provide practical and experimental hands-on and one year on-board experience that allows the students to link directly to fundamental knowledge and theory;
  5. Prepare students to work alone or in groups in order to provide electro-technological solutions;
  6. Prepare students to design/implement systems and processes towards the solution of marine electro-technology problems;
  7. Develop communications skills including the abilities to write technical reports;
  8. Provide students the opportunity to develop specialized knowledge and technical competence in their field of expertise in order to become successful professional electro-technology officers;
  9. Obtain certain knowledge related to: Electrical, Electronic and Control Engineering; Maintenance and Repair; Controlling the Operation of the Ship and Care of Persons on Board, all at the Operational level based on the IMO STCW (Standards of Trainings, Certifications and Watchkeeping) competency.
