UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department has the vision to provide a program of the highest quality to produce leader engineers who can address the challenges of the new century and excel at an international level.

With this vision, the mission is to provide our graduates with the knowledge and skills needed for high quality engineering work as well as advanced engineering research and to equip them with a broad intellectual spectrum in order to prepare them for diverse and competitive career paths.

As individuals and as members of a team, our majors will have successful careers in the academic environment, industrial or government organizations. They will be able to pursue advanced degrees in diverse fields and continue professional development. We prepare our graduates to be able to function in national/international/multi-cultural corporations and organizations.

To meet these objectives, our undergraduate program is built on a strong analytical foundation in mathematics, science and engineering courses. Upon this foundation, core electrical and electronics engineering background is established. A variety of elective courses are offered in order to serve the technical needs and objectives of students. The program is enriched by providing the student with courses in social sciences, humanities and economics to broaden their intellectual spectrum. In addition, our students are exposed to the professional life with the help of two summer practices. Also, a capstone design sequence is offered to students in the senior year to consolidate their technical knowledge by developing an engineering solution to a problem with multiple realistic constraints.

The Electrical and Electronics Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Master of Science in Telecommunications and Networking

Non-thesis M.S. program on Telecommunications and Networking (MSTN) is an interdisciplinary program specifically focusing on the constantly evolving field of information technologies. Graduates of this program are expected to find employment in a broad range of businesses including telecommunications equipment/software manufacturers, internet service providers, wireless network operators, mobile application development businesses, telecommunication chip manufacturers, telecommunications regulatory agencies, and military telecommunication systems development companies. The program is intended for recent graduates as well as engineers who are currently employed by these businesses/organizations and wish to obtain a specialized advanced degree in telecommunications and networking. Students in this program will learn how to become leader engineers in the ever changing world of global information networking, wireless/optical telecommunication systems and technologies. In order to get the MSTN degree, students are required to successfully complete courses from a wide range of subjects in telecommunications, networking, computer science, operations research, management and law related to information technologies.

Admission: All applicants are required to have a B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering, or in a related field of science or engineering. Evaluation of applicants is based on their ALES (Akademik Personel ve Lisansüstü Eğitimi Giriş Sınavı - Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Examination) scores, past academic records, reference letters and an interview. Applicants who are not Turkish citizens and Turkish citizen applicants who are residents of another country may take GRE instead of ALES. All non-native speakers of English are required to submit a proof of satisfactory knowledge of English.

Degree Requirements: Students are expected to complete at least ten courses equivalent to at least 30 credit units of course work. Up to three of these courses can be selected from the undergraduate courses in related fields. In addition to these courses, the students should also complete a one-semester project under the supervision of a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The maximum duration to complete the MSTN program is three semesters.
