GRADUATE PROGRAM

Materials Science and Nanotechnology (MSN) is an interdisciplinary graduate program and aims to train young scientists and researchers who can pursue creative, outstanding research and development in the various fields of nanoscience-nanotechnology and materials science and engineering. The program spans from the fundamental to the applied and innovative research and equips the students with the necessary knowledge and cutting-edge skills to grow into scholar and practicing scientists and researchers who will not be afraid to delve into and be able to offer creative solutions to the challenging problems of today and tomorrow. The courses to be taken by the MSN graduate students should focus on the subject of their own thesis work.

Master of Science in Materials Science and Nanotechnology

Admission: Applicants are required to have a B.S. degree in materials science and nanotechnology, or a related field of science (physics, mathematics, chemistry, molecular biology and genetics) or engineering (electrical and electronics, mechanical, chemical, materials, metallurgy, food). Evaluation of applicants is based on their ALES (Akademik Personel ve Lisansüstü Eğitimi Giriş Sınavı - Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Examination) scores, academic track 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 (Graduate Record Examination) instead of ALES. All nonnative speakers of English are required to submit proof of satisfactory knowledge of English.

Degree Requirements: In addition to completing at least 21 credit units of course work, the M.S. degree candidate must prepare and successfully defend a thesis. The expected duration of study for the M.S. program is 4 semesters; the maximum duration is 6 semesters.

All non-native speakers of English are required to submit proof of satisfactory knowledge of English.

Degree Requirements: The completion of 21 credit units of course work beyond the M.S. level is required. Ph.D. candidates must pass a qualifying exam, typically in their fourth semester; and then must prepare a dissertation proposal. Preparation and defense of a dissertation based on original research is the centerpiece of the program. The standard duration of study for the Ph.D. degree is 8 semesters for students who enter the program with an M.S. degree; the maximum duration is 12 semesters.
