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
