Purpose: The Department targets to produce Metallurgical and Materials Engineering graduates 1- having professional knowledge in examination and determination of the properties of current engineering materials, and in development of new ones, 2- adapted to analytical thinking and lifelong learning, 3- capable to post-graduate education, 4- capable of producing solutions to problems in his/her own profession, and 5- with a care in social, scientific and ethical values.

Vision: 1- To evolve into a nationally and then a globally recognized department in the frontier areas of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, and 2- To provide a modern and a high quality Metallurgical and Materials Engineering program.

Mission: 1- To provide excellence in teaching, sharpening the communication ss (oral and written) of students, 2- To provide sufficient ground for undergraduate students to perform effectively in industry and other employment, 3- To produce Metallurgical and Materials Engineering graduates having professional excellence, and 4- To provide technical support to existing industries.

Program Language: Turkish

Program Description: The Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering is concerned with the generation and application of knowledge on engineering materials. It comprises such aspects as the extraction and refining processes, synthesis and processing of materials, factors affecting the internal structure of solids, methods of ing the structure and properties of materials and factors affecting the materials behavior in service. The undergraduate curriculum comprises a core program that emphasizes principles basic to all these classes of materials. It builds upon courses on physics, chemistry and certain aspects of solid mechanics with a series of courses on internal structure of solids covering both chemical and physical aspects and structure-property relations. From the fifth semester on, the core curriculum addresses to career opportunities in metallurgical and materials engineering. These include the metal industries, ceramic industries and other small scale industries that normally deal with a variety of materials. In addition to its solid core program department offers various technical elective courses on various aspects such as nanomaterials, energy, biomaterials, extractive metallurgy, electrical,magnetic and optical properties of materials. Students take capstone design project in their senior year, by pursuing a real world engineering application.

Admissions Requirements: Students are admitted to our department according to the score they recieve from Central University Enterance Examination conducted by Student Selection and Placement Center (ÖSYM).

Recognition of Prior Learning: Transfer students have the right to be exempted to take the courses that they had been successful in their earlier education. The list of the courses to be exempted is decided by MME Department Adaptation Committee after comparing the catalogue deion of the courses received with the courses in our curriculum and corresponding grades received.

Graduation Requirements: Students should fullfill the necessary credit requierements of 240 ECTS in total and receive a GPA standing of at least 2.00/4.00 , totally 40 weekdays summer practice end of the 4th and 6th semesters (Industry and management), 7th and 8th semesters engineering design courses should be take and also success in order to graduate.

Principles of Assessment and Evaluation: Normally, students should receive a minimum of CC grade in order to be successful in a course. Besides, students who make a semester grade point average of 2.00 are pass the courses that they have received a minimum of DD grade in that semester. Students should repeat any course that they couldnt pass.

Employment Opportunities: The graduates of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering have the opportunity to work at integrated metal production facilities rolling mills foundries heat treatment, powder metallurgy and forging industries ceramics production facilities and about corrosion subjects in the production, quality and control and R&D departments. In addition to the given areas above, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering includes the production, investigation and improvement of the properties of ceramics, plastics and composite materials play an important role in our profession as well as the development of strategies for design and utilization of materials, the research for new utilization areas and improvement of environmental effects of metallurgical processes.

Jump to Top Degree Programs: Approximately 25 % of our graduates enter graduate programs. Ratio of graduate students to undergradate students is about %25 in our department. Our graduates enter toM.Sc., MBA or Ph.D.programs in Turkish universities or universities abroad.
