History
 

Faculty of Engineering has been founded in 1982 by 41st delegated legislation dated 22.06.1982.

 

There are nine Departments under the frame of our Faculty which are; Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Food Engineering, Leather Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Textile Engineering.

 

In 1982, Faculty of Engineering has started its education activity with, Computer Engineering, Food Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Textile Engineering departments. Faculty of Engineering grows to nine departments afterwards by the establishment of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering in 1994, Leather Engineering in 1999, and Bioengineering Departments in 2000 to the faculty.

 

All departments offer bachelor (first cycle), master’s (second cycle) and PhD (third cycle) degrees programs.

 

While all the courses of Chemical Engineering are thought in English, 30% of the courses in Computer Bioengineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Food Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering is given English. In Leather Engineering and Textile Engineering departments the education is in Turkish. Students not comprehensive in English must attend a one‑year Preparatory Program offered by the School of Foreign Languages. Once the proper comprehension level in English is obtained, students then can begin the first year in the department.

 
 

Every year, approximately 800 students is being registered to our Faculty and 800 students is being graduated from our Faculty.

 

There are approximately 4600 registered student in our Faculty and number of graduated students have reached to 13781. Also foreign students, take an important place in our Faculty. The Faculty of Engineering performs several bilateral projects with many international universities and attaches a great importance to international student and lecturer exchanges in the near future.

 

The Faculty aims to educate engineers, which are required for economy by providing essential theoretical and practical knowledge, to find solutions for problems of industry and community, to implement new technologies to industry, and to conduct new researches to improve engineering sciences.

 

Developing current techniques and researching new technologies takes a great place among the aims of the Faculty. A great role falls to institutions that gives engineering education for knowledge based economy. The Faculty acts with this consciousness, follows novel developments in the world and not only creates new research opportunities but also updates current research fields according to today’s conditions continuously.
