Engineering Education

It is aimed to train students in two ways, theoretical and practical. With this feature, it differs from other engineering programs in our country in the field of technological knowledge and application. To improve the engineering competencies of the students, both the laboratories available within the department and the opportunities of the construction sector operating in our country will be used.
