Message from Director
The Graduate School of Natural & Applied Science was founded in 1997, July 17 and came to function with its MSc Programme in Computer Engineering in the 2001-2002 academic year.
As a University that focuses on resarch, the number of Masters (MS) Programmes presently in the Graduate School of Natural & Applied Science has increased to 13 such as programmes in Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Electrical- Electronics Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Manufacturing Enginnering, Civil Engineering, Tunneling and Underground Construction ( Turkish), Mechatronis Engineering, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Information Technology Service Management, Mathematics, Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry and Applied Physics. Except Tunneling and Underground Construction (Turkish), the instruction medium is English in all these programmes.
Furthermore, in the spring semester of 2006-2007, Ph.D. Program “Modeling and Design of Engineering Systems (MODES)” was founded. In parallel with the contemporary scientific and technological developments, MODES Doctoral program has been designed in interdisciplinary structure to orient highly qualified human resource to the science and technology production. Additionally, in the fall semester of 2012-13, Doctoral program of Architecture (Turkish) was started. This program has been designed to have an integrated structure, which comprises the field of “fundamental architecture” and provides its students the opportunity of focusing on one of the three discrete fields such as architectural design, building sciences and conservation and restoration. The Software Engineering Ph.D program has been started education in 2014-2015 Academic Year Spring Semester; Ph.D program of Chemistry 2015-2016 Academic Year Fall Semester; and finally Mechanical Engineering Ph.D program been started education in 2016- 2017 Fall Semester. The Ph. D. Programmes can also be Integrated with MS. Except Architecture, the instruction medium is English for the other four.
