Each September is a fresh start that brings us new excitement and sense of pride. The curiosity and synergy of our new students motivates us, and we begin a new academic year with much enthusiasm. In the next four years you will be studying at one of the best universities in Turkey under the guidance of the most experienced academic staff in their respective fields. The studios, laboratories, workshops and, of course, the library will provide you an excellent learning environment.
