  • Energy Economics, Policy, and Security
  • Materials Science and Nanotechnology
  • Neuroscience

    There are three interdisciplinary graduate programs:

    • Energy Economics, Policy, and Security
    • Materials Science and Nanotechnology
    • Neuroscience

    that lead to M.S. degree in the Graduate School of Economics and Social Sciences and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in the Graduate School of Engineering and Science.

    The graduate programs in Materials Science and Nanotechnology (MSN) offer a multi-disciplinary research environment, endorsing studies from different scientific disciplines. The specific areas of interest are nano and microelectronics, nanophotonics, spintronics, femtosecond lasers, nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine, supramolecular nanosystems, bioinspired and biomimetic materials, systems biology, atomic scale imaging, nanotextile, advanced materials design and manufacturing of nanofibers, nanotribology, novel nanomaterials for electrochemical energy storage, hydrogen economy and solar energy. MSN program provides students with an in-depth understanding of materials in the nanometer scale starting from quantum theory of matter, and involve the design, fabrication and application of novel nanostructures for functional materials to be used in photonics, electronics, biomedical, environmental and energy research and for enhanced sustainability. Graduates of MSN program are highly coveted in academia as well as in industry.

    The graduate programs in Neuroscience provide students with a strong theoretical neuroscience background and opportunities to learn cutting edge methods and technology in the area. The mission is to provide students with the instruction, research experience, and mentoring they need to become leaders in research and education. The particular areas of interest are systems neuroscience, cellular and molecular neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, social neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, neuroengineering, neuroeconomics, neuroprosthetics, neurogenomics, and optogenetics. As part of their work, students in the program have access to advanced neuroimaging, nanotechnology, and biotechnology labs and equipment.

    Non-thesis master's program on Energy Economics, Policy, and Security (EEPS) is an interdisciplinary program that specifically aims to introduce and build the necessary academic infrastructure on issues of energy policy and security that strategically affect Turkey's economy and foreign policy. The program emphasizes both basic conceptual and applied policy-related aspects of global energy markets and identifies the key agents, institutions and powers involved in processes of sustainable and affordable energy and resource management, as well as Turkey's strategic policy choices for satisfaction of its growing energy needs in a potentially conflict-ridden global economy.
