About the Program

Electrical and electronic engineering is at the center of the high technology research and development activities. This program design and produce many equipment related to communication, health, security, comfort and good quality life conditions. In the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Ph.D. program students can carry out research and development activities in the fields of electrical power systems, telecommunications, circuits and systems, electromagnetic fields and microwave technology, and control and robotic systems. In the selected research area, students learn in-depth design and solution techniques with effective knowledge of equipment and methods. Students can create effective solutions by deeply understanding the design techniques that need to be applied for the refinement of projects in their chosen field of specialization, and they may have comprehensive knowledge of development tools and methods. For this purpose, students are able to access many well-known scientific sources online (such as IEEE, ACM, etc.) and thus acquire up-to-date knowledge through many scientific journals.

Education Opportunities

The program contains of research areas like communication technologies (coding techniques, modulation techniques, communication networks), electric energy production, transmission, distribution methods and techniques, electromagnetic fields and microwave techniques (micro-strip antennas, FDTD analysis, electromagnetic scattering), with signal and image processing (filtering methods, face recognition, video coding). Students develop themselves by enrolling in the courses they are interested in. In addition to being able to design with state-of-the-art devices, research and development can be done in the field of electrical and electronics engineering by using simulation methods by using the package programs which are ready to use in high-capacity computers. Students are provided with laboratory facilities for collecting and synthesizing experimental data and thus, obtaining many scientific results. In addition, students are gain experience in publishing the scientific studies they have conducted under the supervision of a faculty member.

This course will follow three main paths: Firstly it will introduce philosophy to doctoral students. The meaning of philosophy, its scope, its sub-branches and its different schools will be the subject topic of the first weeks. Then the course will focus on the relation of philosophy with the sources of knowledge and different sciences. Here, Rationalism, Empiricism and Intuitionism will be covered during the following weeks. In the remaining weeks the course will concentrate on philosophy of science and scientific ethics. Logical positivism, paradigm changes, falsificationism, the questions of “what is science”, “what is pseudo-science?”, “what is the relation between theory and reality?” are amongst topics that will be covered. Finally, the course will concentrate on ethical theories and will particularly cover scientific ethics.
