Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of Nisantasi University consists of 10 undergraduate programs, 8 of which are main academic departments.
The Turkish departments started education in 2013/14 academic year and the English ones in 2015/16 academic year. We are going to give our first graduates in 2017. We do not have postgraduate programs in our departments yet. With the postgraduate programs to be opened in the Institute of Science and Technology, they will be started in 2017. The purpose of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture is to give basic, modern and scientific information and to train them to be open to professional development by putting the emphasis on their creativity. It also aims to prepare them as individuals who keep up with the technological developments and offer solutions to the fast-growing needs of the modern societies.
In our age, just to be equipped with technical information and experience is not adequate. Whatever the professional group may be, cultural experience, aesthetics approach, interest in arts and social circumstances have become the inevitable conditions of becoming an individual and producing useful services to the society. In this context, it has become extremely important in terms of mastery of different languages, ability to express oneself, to follow the latest developments and to communicate in the international environments. It is for this reason that English courses are intensive in our syllabus. Additionally, our students are sent to the industry in the last semester so that they can put the theoretical information they get throughout their education period into practice. The optional courses, not technical, in the training programs of our faculty and the students’ active participation in the activities in and out of the university are intended to make them create human-centred and environment- and energy-friendly designs and productions.
Faculty of Engineering and Architecture is your window to the world.
With my best regards and love,
Prof.Dr. İlhami ÇOLAK
Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture
