Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program

About the Program

Electrical and Electronic Engineering consists of electrical plants, electronics, telecommunications, circuits and systems, electromagnetic fields, and disciplines of microwave technology, and robotics and control systems. Electrical Plants contain the design, operation, and maintenance of high-voltage devices, and also the design of various devices that belong to electricity generation and distribution systems; Electronics, Telecommunications, and Circuits and Systems include the design, development, operation and maintenance of systems operating at low voltages. The Electromagnetic fields and microwave techniques discipline is involved in many systems that operate with high voltage, and also low voltage devices. Control and robotic systems are mostly used to control high voltage devices by making use of the devices which operate at low voltage. Graduates are able to work in the telecommunications industry, alternative energy, and automation systems. The Undergraduate Program in Electrical and Electronics Engineering is carried out in two different languages; English and Turkish.

 

Educational Opportunities

Education and training activities in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering are provided in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and in classrooms with all the up-to-date technological facilities. There are eight faculty members who have completed master's and doctoral degrees in qualified and well-known universities. The faculty is composed of experienced academicians who continue their scientific studies in their own fields of expertise by conducting thesis advisories to master and doctoral students. In addition to our two four-year undergraduate programs, there are Master of Science (M.S.) and Ph.D. (PhD) programs, which focus on academic research and development. Our undergraduates have the opportunity to specialize in the fields of electrical plants, electronics, telecommunications, circuits and systems, electromagnetic fields, microwave technology, and robotic and control systems, which are arranged according to today's needs and expectations.

 

Career Areas

Graduates of this department can work in the big sectors like telecommunications, automation, and energy; as well as  as an engineer or in management in many fields of industry. Graduates can also make major contributions to research and development in the AR-GE departments of many institutions and organizations. These include the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, Electricity Distribution Companies, Electricity Transmission Companies, Construction Companies, Aerospace Industries, the Automotive Industry, Scientific and Technological Research Institutions, electronics and telecommunication design and manufacturing companies (eg Arçelik, Vestel Electronics, Beko, Turkcell, Aria, Huawei, Ericsson).
In addition, our graduates can get a Free Engineer Consultant (SMM) authority as a member of the Electrical Engineers' Association (EMO) and they can easily carry out tasks specific to Electrical Engineering such as designing, implementing, testing, controlling, and signing.
