The Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) (Greek: Τεχνολογικό Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου or "ΤΕ.ΠΑ.Κ.", is a university established in 2004. Its first intake of students took place in the academic year 2007–08.[2] The establishment of CUT is an attempt to fill in gaps that still exist within Cyprus' higher education by offering degrees in undergraduate and post graduate levels that are not offered by the University of Cyprus or by other higher education institutions.

It is based in Limassol, the second largest city in Cyprus.[3] It was officially inaugurated in September 2007 by then-President of Cyprus, Tassos Papadopoulos.[4]
