At the Engineering Camp, which will be held on 3-11 July and 7-15 August this summer, the students will complete the education program prepared in accordance with their ages in many subjects from mechatronics to software, from robotics to design modeling while getting to know the Cypriot culture.

They will make their own robots at the end of the camp
The Engineering Camp will allow young people to learn about the professions they want to choose in the future and to experience engineering disciplines. Students will spend an unforgettable camp period with mechanical mechatronics, electrical electronics, software programming, design modeling, robot driving studies, 21st century skills, cultural tours and fun activities.

High school students coming from Turkey will get to know Cyprus and its culture with the Engineering Camp on the one hand, and will participate in an accelerated engineering workshop with the facilities of Near East University and Kyrenia University on the other hand.
