About the Program

The Mechanical Engineering Graduate Program aims to equip its students with solid foundations in the relevant field and also to develop advanced practical and theoretical research skills. The program is based on the rationale that technological products can only be manufactured by combining expertise and creativity with engineering experiences. For this reason, the program is designed to allow students specialize in machine systems and details. Students develop their skills to participate in scientific activities and share their findings with the scientific community.

Education Opportunities

Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Program can work as managers in institutions and companies focusing on high technology and practices. The graduates can also find employment opportunities in small and medium enterprises (SMEs), large-scale companies and multinational companies operating in the automotive and machinery sectors. They can take part in national and international projects and R&D activities that are outside the routine practices of daily engineering problems. They can pursue an academic career by completing a doctorate degree and find employment in higher education institutions as academic staff.

Seminar course is designed to promote research interest in various areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Students are expected to further advance and deepen their knowledge regarding research methods through discussions of research results made in their fields of specialization. Students will make presentations on the progress of their research and will hold discussions with teachers to expand the range of their research. An additional objective of the research seminars is to nurture global IT specialists by having students make presentations at national or international conferences. Students are required to attend both research seminars and conferences for developing their research ability. Master students must register and fulfill departmental requirements of the seminar.
