Profile of The Programme
Bioengineering is the application of concepts and methods of life sciences such as biology, microbiology, molecular biology combined with engineering principles to living systems. In the 21st century through the recent developments bioengineering is accepted as a key tool for the socio-economic development of humanity. Bioengineering is solving the problems of community and concerned sectors by being a science-based discipline founded upon engineering such as fluid mechanics,mass and heat transfer, thermodynamics, reactor design, kinetics, with the life sciences such as biology, microbiology,gene technologies, protein chemistry, metabolism. Since the improvement increases quickly in bioengineering, biotechnological technics are used in various industrial areas like pharmaceutical, chemistry, environment and food industry, new methods are developed and these methods are used for production and application. Generally, bioengineers use the principles of biotechnology to obtain biologically compatible materials such as different food products, energy sources (hydrogen, bioethanol, biogas), medicines (antibiotics, vitamins, hormones) and biochemical substances ( protein and amino acids, enzymes, organic acids, pesticides, polymers). Bioenginnering has a close history with biotechnology and there is a rapid development in this area. Bioengineering is considered as one of the primary science discipline by European Union 6th and 7th Framework Programs and TR Prime Ministry State Planning Organization 9th Development Programme (2007-2013).
Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples
Bioengineers work in the manufacture and application areas of biologic and biologically compatible products , design of bioprocesses, and production,management, administiration, and technical marketing in research departments of biotechnology sectors.
Access to Further Studies
Our students who are graduated with the Master’s Degree after fulfulling the requirements of the Programme of Bioengineering can apply to the graduate programmes (doctorate ) in their scientific area or else by meeting conditions of these programmes, they may be accepted, also depending on the test score for the post graduate education such as “ALES” (The Academic Personnel and Post Graduate Education Admittance Examination), ÜDS ( The Foreign Language Test of the Inter Universities Council ), KPDS ( Foreign Language Level Examination for Civil Cervants ) which are centrally organized by Student Selection and Placement Center (ÖSYM).
