Master of Science in Chemical Engineering
Chemical Engineering Department gives degrees at B.Sc., M.Sc. and PhD levels. The undergraduate and MSc programs which started in 1998 were followed by the PhD program in 2001. The priority of the department is to create astimulating research and education environment for its students and faculty. The student/faculty ratiois intentionally held at a minimum to provide each student with an excellent education while allowing the department to monitor the progress of the students individually. The language of teaching is in English as for all programs in IZTECH. Undergraduate curriculum is based on courses in Basic Sciences and in various Engineering Disciplines related to the goals of the program. During their education, students can take elective courses in fourinterdisciplinary areas, namely biotechnology, energy,environment and materials science.
The Department hosts 17 full time faculty members with PhDs from prestigious universities in the world. The faculty members are considered experts in their selected fields which include: advanced materials, biochemistry andbioprocess engineering, biotechnology, catalysts, process control, separation and purification, surface treatments, energy (conventional and renewable) and environment. Such profile creates extensive research opportunities to students at graduate level. The Department of Chemical Engineering is able to pursue the latest scientific developments and is ready to contribute to new areas of research.
The Masters and PhD programs in Chemical Engineering receive a special attention since graduate work constitutes the foundation of IZTECH. While the faculty members are encouraged to focus on understanding the basic physical, chemical and biological principles in their related research fields, they carry on research in order to advance existing technologies and to contribute to the development of new engineering fields. The Department works hand-in-hand with other departments since interdisciplinary work is considered premium in IZTECHand supported with interdisciplinary programs. With such goals and means, IZTECH Chemical Engineering Department is aiming at to become one of the leading programs in Turkey.
