Engineers play an essential role in today’s fast developing world of science and technology in which Information, Production and Electrical Technologies are among the flagship fields. The aim of the Faculty of Engineering(FE) is to become a leading source of knowledge and information, to expand and improve principles, processes and techniques in engineering, and to educate the much-needed experts and scientists in these fields.
Producing engineers who can acquire and utilize knowledge to carry out the projects of the future is the main target at FE and comprehensive education programs in these fields are offered for this purpose. FE is well aware of the fact that applying science and technology to solve real world problems is an essential formation for an engineer in this increasingly challenging and demanding world. That is exactly the reason why we offer a student-centered environment with personal attention from faculty.
Our undergraduate curriculum provides a solid background in basic science courses as well as engineering courses. In order to provide the students with a broad intellectual spectrum, elective courses in humanities and social sciences are also offered. Wide collections of technical elective courses are offered in junior and senior years to let students concentrate on specific tracks of interest if they wish. In fields with widespread application areas, students are provided with focused education by offering them special option programs. In this context, "Computer Games" and "Web Engineering" option programs were opened. Both of our two option programs are supported with the expert faculty members in their fields and laboratories with the necessary hardware and software.
Eleven separate departments are formed within the Faculty: Computer Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Software Engineering, Civil Engineering, Food Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Genetics and Bioengineering and Aerospace Engineering. Courses of study in each department conform to the principles and suggestions of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) and IIE (Institute of Industrial Engineers). In conducting courses at FECS, faculty exchange programs established with foreign universities are being utilized extensively.
Graduates of our faculty earn a background on which they can plan careers where they can undertake active roles in multidisciplinary project teams in both national and international companies, or they can proceed to master’s and doctoral-level studies in an academic lane.
