    • YILDIZ TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY görsel görsel ve spotYildiz Technical University (YTU) whose vision is to be a leading institution of internationalstanding represents a unique milieu of education, research and culture in Turkey.YTU inherits our outstanding science, technology, and culture and pioneers open access toacademic research, technology and arts. Being one of the most well-known universities ofTurkey, it is conducive to the achievement of the goal of the development and welfare of thesociety.YTU is one of the leading government institution dedicated to engineering sciences educationin Turkey. In addition to being 3rd oldest university of Turkey with its history dating back to1911 it is regarded as one of the best universities in the country. The university’s mission is topromote development and cooperation at the national and international level by providingoutstanding professional knowledge and skills in the educational fields.YTU offers a range of programmes at the undergraduate and graduate level, ranging fromengineering disciplines, humanities to social sciences. Today YTU has 10 Colleges most of whichare related to engineering, 2 Graduate Schools, 1 Vocational School of Higher Education, 1Vocational School for National Palaces and Historical Buildings, 1 Vocational School for ForeignLanguages and more than 25,000 students. Besides, it has nearly 1,500 academic staff rangingfrom research assistants to professors.
    • A MESSAGE FROM THE RECTOR In today’s world, universities have an increasingly significant role of pio- neering the transition to and beyond the information society, and as the fundamental institutions for education and research; they also produce a synthesis of universal and national valuesas they offer orientation for so- ciety on multiple levels. Yildiz Technical University is deeply aware of these new developments and is now taking definite steps towards providing high quality, universal and contemporary education with a student-focused ap- proach. The interdisciplinary graduate and post graduate academic programs in en- gineering and architecture and also in the sciences, social sciences and art taught by our distinguished academic staff which epitomizes the aim of our university in educating the individual of the information age. This indi- vidual is imbued with problem-solving and scientific thinking skills, learns first and foremost how to learn and knows how to grasp, interpret and ap- ply basic concepts and to question, analyse, synthesise and think critically. We are witnessing a period of acceleration in student, academician and program mobility in the world, which has encouraged us further to enter a restructuring process in education and research to perfect our facilities in order to attain universal standards. We give a chance to our domestic and foreign students to study together in a culturally interactive atmosphere at the historical facilities of our campuses and we are confident that this atmosphere will contribute greatly to our aim of educating the individual of the information age. The pre-eminent values of Yildiz Technical University are reason and sci-Prof. Dr. Ismail Yuksek ence and here we aim to educate scientists and intellectuals, providing the Rector younger generation with a full preparation for a successful career and life. My wish is that your study here will fill your heart with strength, pride and happiness YILDIZ TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY
    • HISTORY OF YTUThe stages our university has passed through in its distinguished past are outlined below. In the 1959-1960 semester a department of specialization was opened at the Istanbul Tech- nical School which awarded the titles of Professional engineer and professional architectKondüktör Mekteb-i Âlisi / The Conductors (Technicians) after a year’s study.School of Higher Education (1911-1922) The Istanbul State Engineering and ArchitecturalThe Kondüktör Mekteb-i Âlisi/Conductors (Technicians) School of Higher Education wasfounded in 1911 in order to meet the “science officer” (known previously as conductors, and Academy Period (1969-1982)today as technicians) requirement of the Municipality Public Works Section. The school was The school was established as an autonomous higher education and research institutionmodelled on the syllabus of the “Ecole deConducteur” and was affiliated with the Ministry with Law no. 1184 of State Engineering and Architectural Academies published on 3 Juneof Public Works.
