Mechanical Engineering, as the engineering branch that has the most extensive area of activity, deals with machinery, energy and manufacturing processes. Mechanical engineers design and manufacture machine tools, machines and equipments for all branches of industry. These include turbines, printing presses, earth-moving machinery, food processing machinery, air conditioning systems, refrigeration systems, artificial hearts and organs, airplanes, diesel locomotives, automobiles, trucks, motors for shipping and public transportation vehicles. Usefulness and inexpensiveness are among the factors that are taken into consideration in these designs and manufactures.
The mission of our Department of Mechanical Engineering is to provide its students with the knowledge and skills required by mechanical engineering profession, and also with a sense of responsibility regarding the needs of the society and their profession.
The objectives and advantages of the program are providing its students with the opportunities to receive education in a modern undergraduate program, with advanced laboratory facilities,
from experts in their fields, and educating qualified engineers by taking into consideration the needs of our country in the field of mechanical engineering.
The study period at Department of Mechanical Engineering is four years. The internships done within this period will enable our students to get to know the working life and establish business relationships with successful companies. During their education our students will, after taking basic engineering courses such as mathematics and physics, also take courses that will enable them to have basic knowledge in each of the mechanical engineering branches such as mechanical drawing techniques, designing and manufacturing, materials science, mechanics and fluid mechanics, endurance, dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, machine elements, and will be educated as so they will be more competent in one of these branches. Our education programs are computer-aided.
Along with these, our students can also participate in international Student Exchange programs and can further widen their horizons through completing Double Major or Minor programs.
The graduates of Department of Mechanical Engineering have a wide range of employment opportunities. They can set up their own businesses, or can work in domestic or foreign machinery and manufacturing companies in Turkey or abroad.
