The faculty is composed of nine departments; Computer Engineering, Bioengineering, Leather Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Food Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Textile Engineering Departments. The education in the faculty was initiated in 1982 for the undergraduate level of Computer Engineering, Food Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Textile Engineering Disciplines. In 1994, the Electrical and Electronics, Civil and Mechanical Engineering Departments have started the education in the faculty. In 1999, the Leather Engineering Department and finally in 2000, Bioengineering Department programs have started the undergraduate education. Consequently, the engineering faculty grew by the time, and today it is comprised of nine academic departments.
