Program Outcomes
1) Sufficient knowledge in mathematics, science and engineering related to their branches; the ability to apply theoretical and practical knowledge in these areas to model and solve engineering problems.
2) The ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems; selecting and applying appropriate analysis and modeling methods for this purpose.
3) The ability to design a complex system, process, device or product under realistic constraints and conditions to meet specific requirements; the ability to apply modern design methods for this purpose. (Realistic constraints and conditions include such issues as economy, environmental issues, sustainability, manufacturability, ethics, health, safety, social and political issues, according to the nature of design.)
4) Ability to develop, select and use modern techniques and tools necessary for engineering applications; ability to use information technologies effectively.
5) Ability to design experiments, conduct experiments, collect data, analyze and interpret results for examination of engineering problems.
6) The ability to work effectively in disciplinary and multidisciplinary teams; individual work skill.
7) Effective communication skills in Turkish oral and written communication; at least one foreign language knowledge.
8) Awareness of the need for lifelong learning; access to knowledge, ability to follow developments in science and technology, and constant self-renewal.
9) Professional and ethical responsibility.
10) Information on project management and practices in business life such as risk management and change management; awareness about entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainable development.
11) Information on the effects of engineering applications on health, environment and safety in the universal and social dimensions and the problems of the times; awareness of the legal consequences of engineering solutions.
