About the Department

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.

Career Areas

Graduates of this program; can easily find jobs in the private sector or in many public companies. They can also pursue careers in areas such as project definition, development, research and development (R&D), work measurement, material management, production planning and control, quality control and business administration and management, especially in high technology companies. The sectors they can work in include but are not limited to wireless communication systems, fiber optic communication systems, renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, design and production of electric cars, control and robot systems. In addition, students who have graduated from this program can have the opportunity to become a faculty member at a university.
