General Description ^
History
Fast unplanned and expansive development activities in Turkey have led to serious environmental problems. The realization of the need for sustainable development and minimization of the environmental damage have initiated a demand of qualified environmental engineers who can work in the industry, in the government and in the regulating authorities. Today, there is a great demand on water supply, wastewater collection and disposal in Turkey as well as on water, wastewater, and industrial wastewater treatment and solid waste management. These demands have increased as the population of Turkey increased and as the inhabitants of the big cities multiplied at a very high rate due to migrations from the rural areas. The Environmental Engineering Department of Marmara University has been established in 1990 and accepted first batch of undergraduate students in the same year. After a four years education, the first enrolled students graduated in 1994. Environmental Engineering Programme has been established in 1993 and the first students have been enrolled for the period of 1993-1994 fall semester in the Institute for Graduate Studies in Pure and Applied Scieces.
Qualification Awarded

Profile of The Programme
Fast unplanned and expansive development activities in Turkey have led to serious environmental problems. The realization of the need for sustainable development and minimization of the environmental damage have initiated a demand of qualified environmental engineers who can work in the industry, in the government and in the regulating authorities. Today, there is a great demand on water supply, wastewater collection and disposal in Turkey as well as on water, wastewater, and industrial wastewater treatment and solid waste management. Marmara University Environmental Engineering Masters Degree Program offers the students to be very well-equipped with essential knowledge and skills in the area. Besides this, we work to provide the resources essential to educate the expert individuals who are researchers at the courses and thesis work, aiming to life-time learning, being able to prepare and manage a project, to observe the surroundings and the developments, and prone to the multidisciplinary and group work.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples
Our graduates can find good positions in public sectors like municipalities, İller Bankası, Ministry of Environment and Forest as well as private enterprises which develop technologies and design in the field or industiral instutions.
Access to Further Studies
Graduate students who fullfilled the required conditions of Environmental Engineering programme can be accepted in Ph. D. programmes as long as they satisfy the requirements of the institution they applied whether in their field or not according to their results in post graduate education examinations (ALES, UDS, KPDS).
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
In our Department, the highest educational standards are applied. Students are examined by mostly two midterm exams and one final exam in almost every course. In addition to these main elements, projects, quizes, homework results and laboratory skills are considered while evaluating students’ success. The course grade of students are calculated by direct grade conversion system in our courses. The end-of-semester grades are woth 50% of the total grade.
Graduation Requirements
Students are expected to complete a minimum of 21 credits and give a seminar which is non-credit. After completing this minimum requirement, the student should prepare a thesis proposal form along with his/her thesis advisor. After the approval of the form student should prepare a thesis.
