The language in education is English. The education period is 4 years. The 60 ECTS credits completed by passing successfully all the courses in the Departement Education Plan and by finishing the master thesis is adequate to graduate.
Profile of The Programme
The Department of The Metalurgical and Materials Engineering is a branch of engineering about the conversion of the material to the final product needed by the society, passing th stages of design, development and manufacturing meanwhile using the theoritical and pratical knowledge. Since the beginning of the civiliztion, diverse materials have been used with the energy to upgrade the life Standard of the human beings. In the most of the engineering branches, new designs depends on the development of new materials. In this programme, our students are very well-equipped with essential knowledge and skills to develop the advanced technology materials. The courses offered to the students cover the the theoritical and pratical knowledge about the relation between the process-the microstructure-the characteristic-the performance and about he behaviour of the material during the application. Beside 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 alumni find easily jobs inland and abroad owing to the qualified education they acquired in our Department. They are still working in areas such as processing, manufacturing, quality control, research and development and marketing in companies such as “Turkish Airlines”, “Assan Aluminum”, “Renault”, “Kroman Steel”, “Eregli Iron and Steel Factories” and institutions such as “TUBİTAK MAM” ( The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey Marmara Research Center ) and also living and working in countries such as France, Finland and Canada while continuing their graduate educations.
Access to Further Studies
Our students who are graduated with the Master’s Degree after fulfulling the requirements of the Programme of The Metallurgical and Materials Engineering 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).
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 relative valuation (curve) system in almost every course. In this determination, the average of the class and the expectation of the professor have equivalent effect.
Graduation Requirements
In the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department, graduation requirements are performed according to the Institute of Graduate Studies in Pure and Applied Studies Education and Examination Instructions.

Facilities
The “Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department” was established and started to the education and research activities in 1997 with academic staff few in number but high in quality. In th following years, the department developped very fast and added the young researchers coming from abroad to its staff, so reached to an international quality. During the last years, the department made intelligent and efficient work to found the research and education laboratories. As a result of this, the department academic staff continues its studies successfully getting qualified national and international projects. Our academic staff continues its studies not only the classical materials engineering subjects but also important actual topics of materials. Because of this reason, the laboratories for developping the advaced technological materials were formed in our department. The configuration of Materials Laboratories is composing of 3 main parts; Materials synthesis and processing, materials characterization, and Mechanical testing sections. These laboratories are equipped with modern systems and devices. The composition, inner structure ve characteristics of the materials and products obtained in these laboratories are determined by the modern analysis equipments and systems installed in the qualification and mechanical properties laboratories. Materials Processing Laboratories; There are essential units for the physical procedures and chemical processes during manufacturing of advanced ceramics, metals, polymers products and shaping and processing devices after the material production ●Crushing, ●Grinding, ●Sizing, ●Blending and ●Mixing raw materials. Forming the materials into useful solid product shapes are accomplished by , ● Shaping presses ;●Uniaxial Press, ●Isostatic Press, Furnaces; ●Drying, ●Heat treatment, ● Sintering.
