MSc in Computer Engineering


Program Description

The MSc program in Computer Engineering offers to its graduate students' opportunities in specializing in areas on which scientific and technological advances have increased recently, such as software engineering, algorithm analysis, and design, parallel programming, computer networks, mobile applications, and web services. In parallel to the developments in all these areas, the demand for the highly-qualified workforce is increasing in Turkey as well as abroad. The M.S. Program contributes to this workforce by graduating engineers with a master’s degree and up-to-date scientific background.

This is a thesis program and the medium of instruction is English.

Why Computer Engineering M.S. Program at KHAS?

Upon the completion of the M.S. program, our graduates can continue their professional careers in ICT industry or enrol Ph.D. programs in universities, where they can tackle open and challenging problems in computer science and engineering, equipped with a research- as well as application-oriented background which covers the sub-disciplines of computer engineering widely and their own specialization area deeply.

Information on the Institution

Department of Computer Engineering was established in1997 under the Faculty of Engineering which later evolved to the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences. The first students to the Graduate Program in Computer Engineering under the Graduate School of Science and Engineering were accepted in the Academic Year of 2006-2007 and the first M.S. degrees were awarded in 2009.

Qualification Awarded/Level of Qualification

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be awarded Master of Science in Computer Engineering (The Qualifications Frameworks in the European Higher Education Area (QF-EHEA): Level 2, European Qualifications Framework (EQF): Level 7)

Admission Requirements

The applicants of the program are required to hold a B.S. degree and to have scored at least 55 in the quantitative section of Academic Personnel and Graduate Education Entrance Examination (ALES) and 65 in the Interuniversity Council Language Examination. ALES score requirement is not applicable to international students. International language examination (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.) scores are acceptable for all applicants according to the equivalencies as imposed by the regulations of the Higher Education Council. The applicants fulfilling these requirements are further interviewed.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Students may be exempted from some of the graduate courses they have succeded in a previously attended program, if they have not been counted towards a degree already, in view of the Exemption Regulations of Kadir Has University.

Graduation Requirements

Students are required to successfully complete the curriculum accepted by the Senate corresponding to 120 ECTS credits in total; that is, coursework with a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average of 2.50/4.00 and an M.S. thesis.

Definition of the Program

The Graduate Program in Computer Engineering covers areas in software engineering and communication technologies that are gaining importance recently. The objective of the program is to educate engineers, who are specialized in areas such as software engineering, algorithm analysis and design, parallel programming, web services and, who are can identify, interpret, analyse and innovatively contribute to the solutions of actual open problems in computer engineering and computer science; and hence, to produce and seminate know-how and technologies needed by the society.
