M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

General

Program Description

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering offers programs that lead to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees.

Graduate Programs

Graduate programs focus on those fields which are heavily in demand worldwide. Current research areas are signal and image processing, electronics, optics, acoustics, electromagnetics, nanotechnology, robotics, telecommunications and networks, biomedical engineering, neuroscience, and system and control theory. The department emphasizes research with the support of excellent laboratories, computing facilities, and libraries. These facilities are continuously upgraded through various grants from national and international resources. Currently, there are image processing, signal processing, optics, electronics, telecommunications, robotics and control, microwaves and antennas, nanophotonics, and biomedical laboratories.

Master of Science in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Admission: All applicants are required to have a B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering, or in a related field of science or engineering. Students with a B.S. degree in areas other than electrics and electronics engineering may be requested to take several undergraduate courses in the field to acquire the necessary background. Evaluation of applicants is based on their ALES (Akademik Personel ve Lisansüstü Eğitimi Giriş Sınavı - Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Examination) scores, past academic records, reference letters, and an interview. Applicants who are not Turkish citizens and Turkish citizen applicants who are residents of another country may take GRE instead of ALES. All non-native speakers of English are required to submit a proof of satisfactory knowledge of English.

Degree Requirements: In addition to at least 21 credit units of course work, the M.S. degree candidate must prepare and successfully defend a thesis. The expected duration to complete the M.S. program is four semesters; the maximum duration is six semesters.

Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Admission: All applicants are required to have a bachelor's degree in electrical and electronics engineering, or in a related field of science or engineering. Evaluation of applicants is based on their ALES (Akademik Personel ve Lisansüstü Eğitimi Giriş Sınavı - Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Examination) scores, past academic records, reference letters, and an interview. Applicants who are not Turkish citizens and Turkish citizen applicants who are residents of another country may take GRE instead of ALES. All non-native speakers of English are required to submit a proof of satisfactory knowledge of English.

Degree Requirements: 21 credit units of course work beyond the M.S. level or 42 credits of course work beyond the B.S. level is required. Ph.D. candidates must pass a qualifying exam and then must prepare a thesis work proposal. Preparing and defending a dissertation based on original research is the essence of the program. A paper based on the candidate's thesis must be accepted or published in a reputable journal before the dissertation can be defended. The expected duration to complete the Ph.D. program is eight semesters for students who enter the program after an M.S. degree, and ten semesters for those who enter after a B.S. degree. The maximum durations are twelve and fourteen semesters, respectively.
