Frederick University is an energetic and vibrant private university operating in the Republic of Cyprus. Despite the recent (2007) establishment, the organisation has a long history of more than 50 years in higher education. In this period, FU has become established in the society and the academic community as a modern university offering teaching and research work of the highest caliber. Since its establishment, FU managed to achieve significant growth, both in terms of student population, faculty members, and academic infrastructure. FU employs about 250 (fte) faculty, with 3500 students enrolled annually on average and operates from two campuses. FU is recognized as the university that offers novel and innovative programs of study that address societal needs and, primarily, as the university that exhibits high social sensitivity and responsibility. The University, offers a broad range of academic programs of study in the areas of Science, Engineering, Business, Arts, Architecture, Media, Humanities, Health, and Education.
FU’s academic staff, either organized in multidisciplinary teams or individually, are involved in a wide range of research, educational and cultural activities relevant to their specializations. The research initiatives and activities that are being carried out by its faculty, place the University among the most successful organizations in Cyprus with respect to the level of financial support received for projects from external sources through competitive national and European programs, including LLP, Erassmus+, Life, FP7 and from Regional Funds. Besides the self-funded creative and other projects, the University staff has implemented or currently running more than a hundred R&D and consulting projects, the majority of which coordinated by FU faculty and researchers.
Over the last ten years, FU-IRG (Frederick University Ionospheric Research Group) has installed an array of ionospheric monitoring instruments and has completed 7 nationally funded projects such as CIFS (Cyprus Ionospheric Forecasting service) which resulted in near real-time operation and short-term forecasting service for monitoring the upper atmosphere over Eastern Mediterranean.
