General Info


Aim of the department is to provide educational opportunities in Electrical and Electronics Engineering to the maximum sustainable extent, through teaching and research. Although one of the department’s aim is high quality research, it is committed to vocational and applied courses which serve the needs of industry and which give our students the best possible opportunities for employment when they leave.



Electrical and Electronic Engineering is one of the oldest departments of Engineering Faculty. Education in the department started in 1972 as Electrical Engineering. The department has been renamed as Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 1988.

Campus and Facilities

The department is in the engineering campus and is the closest building to the student residents. The department has largest cafeteria at the engineering campus. It has 8 lecture rooms and 5 large Labs, which permit a range of experimental studies and provide essential support for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The students have facilities to access to internet and there are several PC’s and Labs to use for both computer aided study design and final year projects.

Projects and Applications in The Department

Electrical and electronic engineering continue to be buoyant industries, as indicated by the current demand for graduates. The School’s 4-year Eng course is designed to qualify students for careers in a wide range of industries, as well as in government and commercial organizations. These typically embrace electrical energy production, electrical drives and power electronics, electronic hardware and software, automation, robotics and control, communications, radio and television. 14 lecturers and 13 research assistants direct research and education in the department. Three technicians work in the labs as full-time.




Applications and Conditions for Joining to The Department

In order to join to the department, applicants must take an entry exam prepared by ÖSM (Centre for Student Selection). Last year’s entry points to the department have been as below:

Daylight Educ. Evening Educ.

Number of students joined: 50 40

Maximum point : 326,755 320,091

Minimum point : 320,951 318,601

Teaching and Skills

Project work throughout the course underpins the necessity for a combination of practical and theoretical skills and abilities. In spring term of third year, the students are compulsory divided into four groups according to their interest areas after their graduation. These groups are: Power Electronics and Machines, Electronics and Telecommunication, Power Systems, Control and Computers. Each group takes intensive various courses as well as common courses. In the department there are five groups as below:

Circuit and Systems

Power Systems

Electrical Machines





Graduates in the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering can find job in a wide range of industries, as well as in government and commercial organizations. They might work in the universities as researchers or establish their own company.

Research and Publications

In the department, research is carried out in the areas of simulation and modeling of linear and nonlinear systems, high voltage isolators, power generation and distribution, protection of power networks, electrical machines and power electronic drives, vector control, biomedical. Studies have been presented in the national and international conferences and some of them have been published in SCI journals.


Labs of the courses are performed in five different places within the department. These labs for the related courses are: Electrical Machines, Power Electronics, Power Systems, Electronics, Microprocessor, Circuit Systems, Measurements, Telecommunications, Control, and Process Control.

While some of the labs are compulsory for all students, selective groups only take the others.
