The Faculty of Engineering offers four-year programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical and Electronics, Industrial and Mechanical Engineering. All of the engineering programs were evaluated by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) since 1998, most recent visit being in 2009.
The Faculty was founded in 1912 as part of Robert College, offering the B.S degree in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. In 1958, the Department of Chemical Engineering was established and graduate programs, leading to the M.S. degree in all four fields of study, were launched. Robert College along with its School of Engineering was transformed into Bogaziçi University in 1971. The Department of Industrial Engineering was founded in 1973 and doctoral programs in all the five fields of engineering were initiated in the same year. In 1981, the Department of Computer Engineering was established to constitute the sixth department of the School of Engineering. Since 1982, graduate studies have been administered by the Institute for Graduate Studies in Science and Engineering.
The mission of the BU School of Engineering is to educate individuals for careers of leadership and innovation in industry, government and educational institutions, to expand the engineering knowledge base through original research and to contribute through professional services towards a more prosperous and sustainable society. The vision of the School of Engineering is to continue to employ the best faculty and to accept the best students and, thus, to become one of the best engineering schools in the world in the areas of education, research and technology innovation. Our undergraduate programs, therefore, are built on a sound foundation of mathematics, physics, chemistry and humanities, as well as the engineering sciences followed by specialization courses which are offered in the junior and senior years. During the first year of study, all students follow the core program. The undergraduate curricula of the six departments are made up of (i) engineering core courses, (ii) departmental core courses, (iii) specialization-option courses, (iv) complementary courses, and (v) humanities and social sciences courses.
The departmental core courses are required courses and provide the necessary basic knowledge within that field regardless of the area of future specialization. Specialization-Option courses are designed to introduce the students to specialization in specific areas. Students select either from among departmental courses based on their personal interests or choose one or two option sequences from among those specified by their department. Option sequences are groups of three of four courses which normally begin in the second semester of the third year and continue through the fourth year. Complementary courses are elective courses, subject to departmental approval, chosen with a view toward complementing a student's education according to his or her interests. Complementary course lists are devised by each department in agreement with its own curriculum. Each department requires that a minimum number of humanities and social sciences courses are taken by each student for a successful completion of the undergraduate study.
ENGINEERING CORE COURSES
(COMMON TO ALL DEPARTMENTS)
CMPE 150 Introduction to Computing (1+0+4) 3 ECTS 5
(Bilgi İşleme Giriş)
The aim of the course is two fold: To give the student literacy on computers and data processing, and to make him/her a computer user either as a programmer or as an application software packages user. The course has separate components for these two aims. The first component is the weekly lecture on computer hardware, computer software, applications, computer industry and social issues. The second component is organized in terms of labs, workshops and recitations. Students follow one of two alternatives as chosen by their department: 1) Programming in a high level language such as Pascal, C or Fortran, 2) The use of a set of application software packages such as word processing, spreadsheet, and data management packages.
ENGG 110 Engineering Graphics (2+0+2) 3 ECTS 5
Principles of Engineering drawing, lettering, dimensioning, orthographic drawing, pictorial and sectional views. Introduction to computer aided drafting.
ENG 380-399 / 480 - 499 Special Topics in Engineering (3+0+0)3 ECTS 5
(Mühendislikte Özel Konular)
Special topics of current interest in engineering and technology.
CHE 492, CE 492, CmpE 492, EE 492, IE 492, ME 492 Project
(Bitirme Projesi) (0+0+8) 4 ECTS 8
Inter-disciplinary project undertaken by a student, either together with a small team of other students or individually, under the supervision of a faculty member. The object is to enable the student to apply as much of his/her education as possible to the solution of a specific realistic problem. Students are required to meet on a regular basis for consultation with, and report orally to their project supervisor. A written midterm progress report and a final report are required of each student together with at least one oral report to his/her classmates.
Prerequisite: Senior standing in respective departments.
ENGINEERING SERVICE COURSE
ENG 101 Introduction to Computers (2+0+2) 3 ECTS 7
