About the Program

Energy Systems Engineering is an engineering branch that conducts studies on energy production systems, resources, systems modelling, simulation, optimization, analysis, design, energy storage, and energy efficiency. The legislation, management, and policies inherent in the modern energy sector are important for energy systems engineering. Besides the use and management of available technologies, energy systems engineers should also be able to produce new technologies. Therefore, the Energy Systems Engineering Program aims to train qualified engineers who are able to use energy resources in an efficient way, can plan energy production, usage, and transmission, understand energy-related laws, and are capable of critical thinking while following ethical and social principles in their professional practices.

Education Opportunities

The curriculum of the Energy Systems Engineering Program covers basic sciences in the first year and, in the second year, it offers technical courses involving tools such as thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, and reaction kinetics. From the second year onwards, courses focus on various energy systems, and students use fully-equipped engineering laboratories for practical components of learning. Most of the courses offered in the third and fourth years are in the practical labs allow fostering students’ theoretical and practical education. The practical component of the curriculum are fulfilled by attending training courses where students see the studies conducted in the field of energy at other institutions. At the end of four years, each student receives a graduation project, the main purpose of which is to help students conduct studies in topics learnt during their education and find solutions to recent problems.

Career Areas

Energy systems engineers can develop careers in a broad range of workplaces in the public and private sectors. The increasing amount of energy investments, especially over the last decade, has resulted in an increase in demand for engineers in the energy sector. Graduates of the Energy Systems Engineering Program can work in areas related with energy efficiency, energy conservation, and energy laws. Today, in response to the demand for clean energy, investments are increasing in renewable energy, such as solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal, and hydroelectric power plants. In addition to these, there are planned developments in thermal power plants and nuclear power plants. These developments also create a significant source of employment.

The potential problems surrounding the use of fossil fuels, particularly in terms of climate change, contributing to global warming became a real concern for the humanity and the eco-system. Today, there is a growing shift towards environmental awareness and the the current energy-mix is coming under closer scrutiny leading to the rise of cleaner alternative energy sources. While the viability of each can be argued, they all contribute something positive when compared to fossil fuels..Lower emissions, lower fuel prices and the reduction of pollution are all advantages that the use of alternative fuels can often provide. Understanding the basic characteristics as well as pros and cons of both the conventional and alternative sources is a prerequisite for a sustainable future.

Turkey is a significant energy consumer and a significant energy importing country. Energy import dependency is around 75 percent while the country has very significant indigenous but idle energy resources. Energy intensity is high and still rising offering a remarkable potential for improvement. To understand the basic characteristics, problems of Turkey’s current energy policy as well as the enormous indigenous resource potential for improvement will motivate the students to propose a more independent, sustainable and affordable energy policy. Turkey is in the center of the Eastern Mediterranean energy policy developments together with Cyprus island. Such integrated characteristic will enable the student to have a wholistic approach to solving the current dilemma around the region. However before proposing a solution, they should be better informed about the basics of the energy game and the specifics of the region.
